Review - Legacy of the Beast TALLINN ESTONIA 27 May 2018 - Iron Maiden opening show of 2018 new tour.

A quick observation / opinion / review of the Legacy Of The Beast very first show in Tallin last night.

First in Bahasa Melayu then in English.

As usual... the contents are possibly different.... so to see all the insults, gossips, slanders, rumour, its good to know both languages.

This is the official short video of the first show...

I am there somewhere in the audience!!!






These are just ad hoc photos... more to come on the next few show.. LOL!!! and also all the travelling and all the market trips savoring whatever food stuffs that markets sell.

OK OK...
nanti aku cerita lain kali k backpack aku kali ni, cerita pasal Bulan Ramadhan kat sini, sini ni tempat2 aku gi backpack untuk tengok Iron Maiden,
cerita pasal pergi pasar tengok2, cerita pasal apa2 je la......
tapi ni laju punye post, nak cerita sikit pasal Iron Maiden main semalam. Malam pertama Legacy Of The Beast tour. Jadi memang tak tahu apa akan jadi...




Memang sold out la kan... Penuh sesak,
dan macam dah lazim, peminat yang tengok konsert rock Iron Maiden sekarang dah mengjangkau usia dari paling kecil hingga ke tua...
ramai bawak keluarga...
ratio lelaki pompuan pun aku rasa sekarang ialah 50-50.

Security bagus, dorang ronda dalam keadaan huru hara tu tapi tak carik pasal dengan para hadirin  malah aku nampak dorang memang carik budak2 nak kasi ear-plugs...

So macam photo atas, pasal ni show pertama jadi memang tak tahu apa jadi.. aku memang excited dan teruja betul..
jadi aku nampak... eh... dorang set up barricade perang, kat monitor setiap musician siap letak netting jaring yang kita nampak tentera pakai tu untuk camourflage dan kasi bomb musuh melanting ke tempat lain...
lepas tu dua crew Iron Maiden yang memang tugas nak bukak kain penutup walk-on ramp kat kiri kanan tu pakai baju tentera.
Mereka berdiri tegap serious waktu Churchill Speech nye intro.

JUMLAH SEMUA 16 lagu... aku cuma borak2 je la kan cerita apa aku ingat.

Cakap pasal Crew, semalam Iron Maiden tukar lagi Front Of House Engineer. Latest soundman ni ialah Justin Bieber, Jay Z, Kate Perry , Alanis Morisette, Linkin Park nye sound man.
Aku cuma nak cakap show semalam....... dalam berapa tahun ni.... ni show ialah pertama aku dari mula sampai akhir takde beralih perhatian kepada masalah sound yang macam sial yang kadang2 terjadi kat Iron Maiden. Kadang2 memang cuaca, macam Donington angin hujan ribut... paham.. tapi kadang2 memang aku terpaksa mengaku MACAM PUAKA!!!
Jadi maknanya, FOH baru ni berjaya lakukan kerja nya dengan baik....
Besok kita tengok Helsinki macam mana.....
Kalau besok pun takde problem..
Maknanya Iron Maiden berjaya selesaikan satu masalah kronik.. untuk sebuah band heavy metal yang main pakai tiga gitar karen, lead dan solos berganti, bassist pulak Steve Harris the one and only..., drummer pun, vocals lak air raid siren, dengan pemain keyboards lagi belakang pentas...

Aku rasa berapa pun mamat ni mintak gaji... iron Maiden patut bayar je la.

OK Aces High.... terkejut beruk... lagu start je rupanya ada prop life-size Spitfire atas band sedang main. Kalau sapa familiar Motorhead Bomber... konsep nya sama.

Bruce sikit2 tukar costume.






Lagu kedua Where Eagles Dare...   ooohh Iron Maiden masih pakai kain langsir ye untuk prop belakang pentas..  Walau gossip cakap Legacy of The Beast mereka akan pakai LED macam band2 lain..
so abis satu lagu tarik curtain... abis satu lagu tarik......
Happy aku Where Eagles Dare dimainkan...

Lagu ketiga two minutes to midnight... haha.. apa nak cakap kan.... muak lak aku asyik lagu ni walau lagu ni dah direstkan untuk Book Of Souls World Tour 2016-2017

4th.., Clansman.
Steve dengan akaustic bass nye... terbaik persembahan lagu ni...
Bruce dah macam Mel Gibson BRAVEHEART... dengan pedang dia... Mohon Bruce pakai warpaint macam Mel Gibson.....

5th  Trooper...
dalam hati aku ... awal giler walk on eddie keluar... walk on eddie kali ni ialah Eddie Trooper....  dan lawak dia main pedang dengan Bruce..
OK... pasal Bruce bawak pedang... jadi flag Union Jack stage right dia letak berdiri aje... rupanya bila dia ke stage left, bendera Estonia...

gimik sangat terbaik... aku speku ni ialah GIMIK akan dibuat setiap negara...







Lepas tu Bruce cakap pasal... FROM WAR TO THE CHURCH....

so belakang semua tukar..... jadi stained glass zaman dulu....

Revelations...., For The Greater Good Of God... Wickerman, Sign of the Cross....

apa lagi nak diminta kan..  semua lagu dahsyat.....

Cuma FTGGOG aku fikir balik... lagu ni sedap tapi aku takut dia matikan momentum live Iron Maiden yang rancak tapi takpelah.. Iron Maiden ni dah sampai kalau dorang main Wratchchild 10 kali je lepas tu balik pun aku dah puas hati...

Sign Of The Cross.. .Bruce bawak je cross besar mana dia pergi...
memang laju giler lagu ni part solos dan instrumental section dia...... tapi melodik abis.
dahsyat.... dan terbaik...

Lepas tu Flight of Icarus.. memang terkejut beruk..... Seriously... mula2 aku ingat ok.. ada physical prop Icarus... lepas tu aku tengok eh.. Bruce bawak flame thrower...
lepas tu aku terkejut beruk.... boleh tembak api siot flame thrower tersebut..
dan last... Icarus terbakar........ collapsed.

WHAT A SHOW!!!!!  Memang ni The Greatest Show On Earth.

Fear Of The Dark.. Bruce pakai macam zaman dulu nye inn keeper ke apa ke....waktu gelap gitu... haha.
Number Of The Beast... ooohh tour kali ni banyak pakai pyros dan ada letupan ye waktu Sign of the cross.... ikut style rime of the ancient mariner kalau main live.



Lagu penutup tradisi sebelum encore... Iron Maiden dengan Eddie belakang drummer yang baru.

cakap pasal Drummer.. ni Nicko nye drum set nye artwork baru...




Encore dah takde surprises macam tour lepas.......
Evil That Men Do
Hallowed Be Thy Name - KES MAHKAMAH DAH SETTLE!!!!!!! YES...
lagu ni prop Bruce diri belakang jaring penjara... tengah tunggu time nak kena gantung... lepas tu ada tali gantung tergantung dari atas....

Last Run To The Hills....
Orang Estonia suka lagu Run To The Hills ni...

Aku lepas Dave Murray solo aku dah mula kebelakang pusing Run To The Bus Stop...

naik bas wei.... backpack jimat cermat ni hahaha...
satu jam tunggu bas..
baru aku dapat naik......
semua orang peminat iron maiden pun macam aku cheapskate!!! hahaha....


Actually mudah Estonia ni... kena confident je... muka jangan panik..... Ikut orang je...

aku pergi show pun aku gi bas stop.. aku tahu bas 43 pergi tempat show...   better half aku dah kasi aku kad bas Tallinn... aku cuma top up je...
so bas 43 datang.... aku tunggu orang pakai tshirt maiden naik... baru aku naik...
turun dorang turun, aku turun...
dorang jalan mana, aku ikut je.... hahahahah. BONGOK!! tapi apa nak buat.

Nanti la aku lain kali cerita banyak.... ni cuma ringkasan je.....



OOhh Adrian dan Dave banyak pergi Janick Gers side... dah sampai hujung sana abis...haha...
Terbaik la....

lagi dua foto...

Adrian Smith dan Janick'
dan of course....... Steve Harris...




OK aku nak naik ferry gi Helsinki lak...  Dua malam show kat sana...
aku nye tiket malam pertama diri, malam kedua tiket duduk... aku selenger bacin tak monitor penjualan tiket terus tiket diri untuk malam kedua sold out dalam berapa minit.
Tapi nasib ada tiket duduk...
pasal malam kedua terus jual kat public, takde advance sale untukkkk fan club member.
tapi malam pertama aku dapat tiket diri pasal aku dapat beli awal.....

apa aku nak cakap show semalam ramai oku dan istimewa.
tak henti aku nampak peminat datang ditolak dengan kerusi roda...

paling istimewa... pasal aku cabut sebelum run to the hills abis... masa aku nak keluar...
aku nampak satu budak ni buta...
dia dengan bapak dia..
budak tu diri (ye la... memang tiket berdiri ye tak) haha..

dia tengah hentak kayu Walking Stick Blind man ikut drumming Nicko McBrain....

Giler sayu, sedih, happy dan respek peminat2 ni semua untuk.....

Satu2 nye band yang tak boleh disangkal lagi kesetiaan peminat mereka....


More on Tallinn, backpacking to far away countries during fasting month of Ramadhan next time...

I just want to share the basic essence of what I observe yesterday.. Opening show of Legacy of the Beast tour.
I had always aspire to catch the very first show of a Maiden new tour... with all the unknowns and possibilities every second of the show...
and I did it...

By the way it took me 27 hours to finally reach Tallinn and its worth it.

So Estonia loves their Maiden.

Maiden hasa new soundman. Justin Bieber soundman.. Front of house engineer. Just one show, and I never got distracted like the past few years with every show you expect something untidy to happen.

The whole place is packed. Surely sold out...I know standing is sold out, and every seat seems occupied. LOL!!
Lots of families and people from all ages...
The security was going around and I saw them pass ear plugs to the children.
I see many wheelchair bound fans, even a blind young man. (STANDING!! and beating it to Nicko's drumming).

So start of the show...
the two crew members whos duties are to remove the covers of the walk on ramps are dressed in army uniforms and stand at attention for Churchills Speech.
 A real life size Spitfire is hovering on stage for Aces High.
Bruce has lots of costume change.
Seems there is a theme going as Bruce did say " from War to Church"..
Where Eagles Dare... amazing....  Nicko is simply amazing.. last tour it was Powerslave... This time Where Eagles Dare.... big challenges...
2 Minutes To Midnight...
Clansman... What a performance... and I thought that was the only Blaze song...
Bruce was basically Mel Gibson Braveheart without the war paint but with that long sword.
Trooper - walk on Eddie, Bruce sword Fighting with Eddie.. Bruce did not wave the Union Jack as he was holding the sword... He just shows the flag...
The Janick Gers side flag is surprised....An Estonia flag.
So this would make a nice gimmick worldwide.

Revelations change the backdrop and stage completely.
FTGGOG... I find it kills a bit of Momentum... but still awesome and fits in nicely with the stage design.

OOOHH THe lighting rig, I was looking at the circular ones...wondering what will they do...

And amazing... THEY lower DOWN, FOUR OF THEM TO BECOME CHANDELIERS!!!
Sign of the cross was speedy as usual and melodic and surely the most fastest solos and instrumental sections but pure magic...

FLIGHT OF ICARUS.. YOU HAVE TO SEE IT TO BELIEVE IT!!!!!


Ok thats about it....... 

I need to catch a ferry from Tallin to Helsinki.....

Maiden going to play two shows in Helsinki and I got tickets for both nights!!!....

More next time..

Firepower - Judas Priest (Itunes)

A short review/opinion/ulasan/pendapat on my happiness on the new Judas Priest album Firepower.
First in Broken English then in Bahasa Melayu Pasar.



I downloaded it on the night its released on Itunes. As I cannot wait any longer.
So I dont have much idea about the details that cd inlets usually carry.
I know its Tom Allom/Andy Sneap combination at work.

Probably this is the last Judas Priest studio album.
And what a way to leave something for the fans to remember.
Judas Priest is literally " ALL GUNS BLAZING!!!" on this album.

Fast songs, lots of melodies, amazing guitar solos, lots of melodies, heavy, lots of melodies, time changes.
And from what I try to listen, the lyrics are beautiful.

I would say I only do not like much one song, " Necromancer ", yet this song has an amazing what is probably a Glen/Ritchie/Glen/Ritchie solos.

Other songs are spectacular. I really like Flame Thrower, No Surrender, Never The Heroes , Sea of Red and the Guardian/Rising From Ruins combination with that Piano intro.
Basically I love 13 of the 14 songs.

The first few songs are very good and after Necromancer I expect the album to have a drop in standard but the momentum of amazing songs continue until the last epic song with that acoustic intro.

A very good Heavy Metal album. 
Maybe on more listenings it will be as lovable as Painkiller or even Defenders Of The Faith albums.
Probably I will buy the physical album next time, waiting for those additional songs/live songs releases.

More reviews on Judas Priest especially the deluxe albums releases, live review, bootlegs I taped myself on this band..


Salam Semua...

KEGELOJOHAN aku ketara....

tak sabar tunggu rilisan album ni pada malam ia keluar kat tenet secara rasmi.
Terus donlod.
Terus aku fikir , siot nye Judas Priest , lagu2 yang dorang promo keluar awal semua sedap tapi lagu2 dalam album ni yang lain lagi lagi sedap lagi..

Jadi tak disangkal album ni start sampai abis semua lagu sedap kecuali aku ada kurang sikit lagu Necromancer tapi macam aku cakap kat atas, lagu ni tetap gerek masuk gitar solo dia,
dia selang seli empat kali kot Glen dengan Ritchie.
Satu trademark Judas Priest dari dulu dorang suka tukar2 solo dua gitaris selang seli.
Tapi kadang2 melampau macam Sentinel sampai 7 kali. HAHA.

OK ada lagu laju......., lagu slow, semua heavy la kan...  
Melodies merata2 album ni so sapa suka Judas Priest Style Heavy Metal memang seronok la kan.

Aku konfiden sapa minat lagu rock mesti suka album ni dari start sampai abis.

Kena dengar setiap lagu. Kalau boleh liriks dia sekali.

Cantik2 ayat2 lirik dia dari apa yang aku boleh dengar dan fahamkan. Mungkin ada time boleh masuk tenet baca lirik satu satu... HAFAL!!! aha.

Lagu terakhir tu Sea Of Red tu mungkin lagu baru terakhir Judas Priest, cantik giler lagu ni terutama intro dia, lembut je.... sedih je....

Last aku perasan masa Judas Priest main kat sini dulu , yang Lamb Of God menyibuk jadi double headliner tu hahaha...
Aku perasan Glen Tipton dah mula kasi banyak ruang kat Ritchie Faulkner, RF macam ambik spotlights bila solos...
dan aku masih nak tahu apa melodi dia main masa dia solo masa nak abis You Got Another Thing Coming masa persembahan konsert tersebut.

dan album ni pun aku perasan RF macam lawan tokey gitu kannn.

Tapi memang fresh giler album ni....

Aku tak bedek kan, ni album gerek giler.
ooo piano kat Guardians tu meleleh.....

So sambil tunggu studio album terbaru Ghost nanti, ni album jadi layanan untuk album2 baru dalam walkman aku..

lain2 pasal Judas Priest nye rilisan, terutama deluxe editions, rilisan jepun mereka, review live, bootlegs dorang aku tape...

Jugulator/ 98Live-Meltdown/ Demolition/ Live in London (Japan versions) - Judas Priest (Tim Ripper Owen Years)

Hi as usual.. first in English then finished up in Bahasa Melayu Malay Language.

Warning I will lump up quite a number of photos to show the packagings of all these cds so this post is quite long.



I think I will wait for midnite 9 of March to check out Judas Priest new album Firepower on itunes.
I think it will be very good (I Hope).



This is my short review/opinion/ show-off/ ulasan of the four albums that Judas Priest released during the Tim Ripper Owens years (1997 - 2003) where the line up is
-Tim Ripper Owens
-KK Downing
-Glenn Tipton
-Ian Hill
-Scott Travis

I realise I like Ripper Owens singing the older Rob Halford songs, and the two studio albums (Jugulator & Demolition) has a number of wonderful songs. These four albums are worth having.

These are the Japanese pressings/versions.. so as usual when it comes to Japanese pressings of CDs
they are just More Cute, More Pretty than regular ones...
with sometimes extra songs, and better packagings with fancy beautiful Obi Strips and also extra booklets for the Japanese text and lyrics translations.

So lets start with first album.. Jugulator (1997)
Ten Songs
Most songs written by Tipton/Downing. All lyrics by Tipton (surprisingly).
Very modern metal sounding, but I love some of the songs like Blood Stained, Death Row, Burn In Hell, Abductors, the single Bullet Train and the last song, a long song called Cathedral Spires.

I got some problems listening to it the first time, but then its ok as I was expecting a normal regular Judas Priest album but not so.

So I give this album a nice 7.5/10.



The Metal God is back!!!





next is the live double album recorded during the Jugulator tour.
Its called 98 Live - Meltdown (1998)

Now we're talking... these shows seems recorded in lots of places but its sound continuous and fun.

24 songs.. of which 6 are from Jugulator.
The rest are classic Judas Priest and sometimes I feel Ripper Owens versions on the two live albums he record with Judas Priest is as good or even superior to Rob Halford versions of the older songs.

Some I listen more are - the new songs from Jugulator live versions are simply superior to studio version, Diamonds and Rust, Touch Of Evil, NIGHT CRAWLER.

So this live album I will give it a 9/10. I cannot give more as Live In London is perfection.














moving on to the next studio album..  DEMOLITON (2001)

This is for me a superior album to Jugulator because they play a more traditional Judas Priest Style Heavy Metal.
Some songs are modern but mostly are classic heavy metal so I love songs like One On One, Hell is Home is amazing, Blood Suckers, In Between, SUBTERFUGE is another amazing one and it has at least two beautiful slower songs Close To You and Lost And Found.

Again, all songs are either Tipton or Tipton /Downing majority.

I will give this album a generous 8.5/10










Oooo it even have some pretty stickers...


lastly the final one... and the best one out of all...

the double cd Live In London (2002).

26 songs!! of both classics and new ones. And this is the full version NOT the DVD version which has less songs.
You even got Desert Plains.
The most amazing version ever.
I simply love this song...

Simply a Wonderful setlist of the songs on both Live In London and 98 Live Meltdown...
which gives me hours and hours of Judas Priest favourites live sung by Ripper Owens which I say is as good as Rob Halford if not superior.

And as for the music, no argument. Songs like Painkiller and I feel my teeth twitching and grinding by itself. LOL!!

So a perfect 10/10 for this double cd version of Live in London. About 26 songs. More than 2 hrs of Judas Priest style heavy metal.










More Judas Priest photos show - off and ramblings about their releases, their special 3cds releases of Turbo, Defenders , their Japanese versions, and live review and bootlegs I tape myself of them playng...

go here.. - http://deaf-angel.blogspot.sg/search/label/judas%20priest

Thats about,
This is from Youtube..   Desert Plains
This is a Rehearsal.. REHEARSAL...  and its so awesome....
the whole album on a rehearsal for live in London recordings....






Hai semua...
hah... aku Majmuk kan sekali 4 cd review.. Pasal nanti aku ni suka sambung2 last2 semua benda tak abis...
Serious berbual aku nak sambung aku backpacking tengok band rock pun tak boleh game dari tahun ke tahun... so now, aku buat blog pun tak sekerap dulu, so kena tukar taktik.

Walau cuma berapa orang je baca pun, iaitu korang, tapi sebenarnya aku buat blog ni untuk syok sendiri. Ni la tempat peluang aku tulis baik bahasa English atau Bahasa Melayu walaupun tak betul.. cuma kalau korang perasan, aku sedar aku dah kurang maki hamun dan guna perkataan lucah.
HAHA...     kot tu semua simpan kot, sekali lepas.... terus penuh satu blog haha.

OK macam aku cakap kat atas, aku review / ulasan, beri pendapat pandangan empat album (dua studio, dua live double cd masing masing), yang mana Judas Priest gunakan khidmat Tim Ripper Owens untuk nyanyi lepas Rob Halford tinggalkan dorang jadi penyanyi solo zaman 90an dulu.

Walaupun apabila Judas Priest bermain live di sini berapa tahun lepas ialah Rob dan aku tak pernah tengok Ripper Owens nyanyi tapi aku suka sangat dia kat Judas Priest jadi aku memiliki semua empat cd cetakan Jepun yang dikeluarkan masa dia bersama Judas Priest.

Foto2 dan tarikh tahun semua aku dah letak kat atas.

Jugulator - macam modern gitu, memang terkejut pasal Glen Tipton dan KK sebagai kepala Judas Priest cuba buat perubahan sound dan cara tulisan lagu. Jadi ada menjadi , ada aku suka, dan ada aku tak paham. Tapi still ok.


98 Live Meltdown - Terbaik dari ladang... Suara Ripper Owens live nyanyi lagu Judas Priest memang juara, sebaik Rob Halford. Dan lebih 20++ lagu baru dan lama yang best.

Demolition - rata2 ni Judas Priest kembali main style Heavy Metal mereka dan aku suka sangat kebanyakkan nya macam aku cakap atas.

Live In London  - ni 26 lagu yang sangat hebat. Mungkin album terbaik live Judas Priest aku akan pilih album ni. Kelakar pasal bukan Rob Halford pun nyanyi.
Macam aku cakap kat atas... masa aku dengar lagu Painkiller versi kat sini, gigi aku ngilu macam aku gi jumpa doktor gigi.

Dah tu je bye, kita tunggu 9hb Mac genap 12 malam, Judas Priest akan keluar, aku speku aku akan terus download pakai Itunes. Aku speku akan terbaik album baru dan aku speku terakhir Judas Priest walau sapa pun pemuzik dan penyanyi nya.
macam aku bagi link kat atas, nak baca review2 aku lain pasal Judas Priest terutama special editions Defenders of Faith, british steel, turbo yang jenis boxset tiga cd style jepun, live review dorang main kat Taman Larangan Fort Canning berapa tahun lepas.... dan apa je la.. gi kat link atas.

STEVE HARRIS focus on camera I took @ the 2017 Liverpool show during the start of Powerslave solo

From Art Fazil new album to Steve Harris.

A bit on Steve Harris (Iron Maiden's bass player and maestro ) first in English then in Bahasa Melayu Malay Language.

I took a short video focussing only on Steve Harris at Liverpool (Echo Arena on 17 May 2017 I believe thats the date ) when I backpack for the UK part of the 2017 section of the Book Of Soul World Tour.
Its something for me to cherish and I upload it on youtube.


It shows a bit of what Steve Harris (and Iron Maiden) is about live.
The DETERMINATION!!, always giving 666% to prove how good they are, performing amazing music live, giving all they got, showmanship, giving fans value for money (and thats why I keep putting myself in life difficult situations as to able to backpack to see Maiden play at different places), and showing himself as a human being with adjusting his hair, and keep wiping his perspiration and sweat all the while..
The Energy given by the audience to the band is addictive. You can fill the energy of the whole audience and the love for the band.

And the trick is this, one person goes to see Maiden plays and see how good and determine Steve Harris (and the rest of Iron Maiden) is, they go back, and tell their family and friends and colleagues or school friends.

When the next time Maiden comes to play, that same person will bring his/her whole family, and friends and colleagues and neighbours and school mates.
So you will have the most youngest little boys and girls, school children, teenagers, adults, and to the oldest grandfathers and grandmothers.

The persons he or she bring along will continue that DOMINO EFFECT and repeat it next time.
Thats why Maiden is getting bigger and bigger and bigger and they surely have not much time left. Every Show could be the last. But thats how their legacy is - PURELY WORDS OF MOUTH from person to person.


also,

I think below photo is from Cardiff Wales 2017. I had forgotten where I took this photo.

Steve Harris leading the charge during Trooper.

Sweet Memories...




Video atas ni aku rakam masa kat Liverpool tahun lepas. 
Saje je rakam Steve Harris kejap buat kenangan. So aku share kat sini la.

Patut dengan kejayaan mereka, mereka boleh relak, tapi tetap.. Iron Maiden setiap show buat persembahan macam mereka masih remaja, nak cuba buktikan betapa hebat dan bagus nya mereka bermain music live dan lagu2 yang gerek.

Sebab tu macam aku cakap kat atas, peminat yang datang akan cakap "wow.. bersungguh2 band ni main, sangat hebat dan penonton semua keluarkan energi positif dan macam tengok bola tapi semua orang bersorak sokong untuk satu pasukan aje.. dan semua macam famili beribu2 ni".
tak kira lelaki , perempuan dari budak sampai orang tua. Walau tak pernah dengar pun lagu Iron Maiden, tapi tak tipu, siapa yang pergi akan tertarik..

Bila better half aku first time pertama kali dia tengok Iron Maiden, aku gelak gila bila abis show dia cakap "Lagu Fear Of The Dog best la tadi ".. hahahaha...

Macam ramai orang Melayu, Iron Maiden ni jenama terkenal. Tahu lagu dorang atau tak tahu, tu lain cerita,
tapi brand name Iron Maiden ni sangat kuat pengaruh dia di kalangan orang Melayu dan kebanyakkan rumah ye tak?

So balik kepada isi padu blog kali ni, Maka, setiap orang tengok Iron Maiden main, balik rumah dan besok nya, akan cerita pasal persembahan mereka kat satu keluarga, kawan kerja, kawan sekolah.

Dan lain kali Iron Maiden main, makin ramai nak tahu, dan nak pergi..  Apa tu daya tarikan dan kenapa Positive Energy je yang peminat yang datang tengok band ni beraksi??

Iron Maiden macam aku cakap tadi, akan main bersungguh2 dan penuh semangat macam nak buktikan sesuatu...
yang datang tadi akan tertarik dan terpikat, mereka pun akan peminat, dan lain kali akan bawak lain orang.. lagi ahli keluarga, kawan2 kerja, kawan2 sekolah...

Jadi tu pasal dari paling budak2 kecik lelaki pompuan, budak sekolah lelaki pompuan, orang dewasa lelaki pompuan, orang tua lelaki pompuan..

jadi iron Maiden ni akan berkembang dan berkembang... mudah... walaupun aku speku, tak lama dah, dan aku rasa memang betul, setiap show mereka mungkin yang terakhir pasal memang apa pun boleh terjadi dah kat salah seorang mereka. 

Dan macam aku cerita masa aku kat Aberdeen, orang2 perempuan baru balik kerja gitu, semua ngan pakaian ofis dengan beg makcik2 kakak2 gitu...
Diri dekat ngan aku, masa semua dah berasak nak tunggu Iron Maiden main.

Korang tahu, dorang tengah bincang pasal stage set, dorang cerita pasal lighting rig mana akan buat apa , pasal ada rig lampu warna spotlight Iron Maiden kat bumbung akan buat pergerakkan sepanjang show. Lepas tu keluarkan henfon dari beg, dan ambik2 gambo lighting rig Iron Maiden.

Dan mereka ialah makcik2 kakak2 office dan ni kat Aberdeen!! Aberdeen dah kira tempat jin bertendang giler, dah la sejuk giler... memang tempat challenging untuk aku backpack sorang2 tengok Iron Maiden dalam keadaan ikat perut.

So tu la menariknya kalau tengok gelagat peminat2. Ni ingatkan aku masa aku pernah tengok Deep Purple main kat Fort Canning, makcik2 kakak2 Melayu punya la banyak, 

dan hati2 dengan mereka, ni semua rockers zaman rock 70an dulu ye hahahaha...
Dorang start cerita pasal Deep Purple , terdiam ah semua dengar kagum. hahah.

So tu je... sila tengok video aku ni...   Giler aku suka part Steve Harris kesat2 peluh..

OK bye.


p.s aku dah cakap dah dengan famili aku, cita cita mat jenin aku ialah...

kalau Iron Maiden main dorang nye show terakhir.. mungkin kat Olympic Stadium London pasal tu stadium West Ham pakai kan sekarang..

Aku cakap "' kita kena pergi!!"".. mampos aku nangis nangis nanti masa show.. haha.

angan mat jenin la kan.. tapi well...... haha.

Rentak - Art Fazil

My Review/Ulasan. First in English then in Bahasa Melayu Malay Language.



Singapore's (and Malaysia's) Folk rock singer, performer, producer and extraordinaire songwriter and lyricist Art Fazil who is very well versed in both Malay and English, release his new album "Rentak" 
and its a no brainer, when he release an album, you go to the shop where the CD is available and purchase it, no questions asked.
Because you know its going to be very good, at least. And on this one, its simply earmarked as Malay Album of the Year 2018 for me. Simply magnificient especially for those starving for a high quality Singapore local album and a high quality Bahasa Melayu album.

On this album, 7 of the 8 songs are sung in Bahasa Melayu and one is in English about the undisputed, most loved sportsman ever in Singapore's history, footballer Fandi Ahmad.

Its a happy album, up tempo and slow songs. If you know of Rausyanfikir or Art Fazil previous solo releases, like I say its a no brainer, buy the CD or download the paid version.
If you are not aware before, check out youtube. I think there should be some over there.







Macam aku cakap, Art Fazil kalau keluar album baru, terus gi kedai beli CD. Tak payah banyak colok.
Tak kira la korang suka dangdut ke, electronic pop ke, heavy rock ke, heavy metal ke...
Tak payah disangkal lagi kehebatan rilisan Art Fazil.

Jadi album ni macam gembira je kan,

pasal lepak, pasal jangan cepat marah, pasal rilek, pasal suka awek yang pergi macam lipas kudung, pasal cicak kobeng, pasal suasana banjir, pasal raya, pasal orang melayu kat negeri omputeh (walau Art Fazil tak sebut pasal lapar nasik tapi dia cakap pasal sambal tumis,) , ada reference kepada Loloq dalam korus lagu, ada takbir raya (ohh ye, first song dan last share same melody but lain liriks dan masing2 ada nasik tambah kat lagu masing2) dan satu lagu Inggeris... macam momentum keretapi lagu ni , pasal Fandi Ahmad.
Dan ni membawa kepada soalan - Apasal aku tak simpan CD Fandi "Anugerah" sekarang mana nak carik kan??

So apa lagi nak cakap kan?
Juara Lagu tu hari... satu lagu pun aku tak tahu...
Kecuali Dayang Nurfaizah, lain performer satu haram aku tak tahu..
dan aku tak rasa aku rugi apa2 pun tak mau ambik tahu..

aku cuma concern adakah betul 8 April ada show Juara Juara Rock lima lima band kat KL.

Dan album Art Fazil ni, adalah pengisi kekosongan album Melayu yang terbaik, dan tentunya ni album terbaik 2018 kalau takdeperal, dan lagu Lipas Kudung akan jadi feberet song aku tahun ni.
Jangan terkeliru dengan judul album Lipas Kudung.

kat atas tu aku link youtube snippet rilisan ni, first song tu la lipas kudung.. sedap...

So... Mohon semua either beli CD ni, atau download berbayar.
Aku tak bedek, ni album gerek.
dan aku rasa ni la rangkaian khazanah muzik melayu.


Ada la dulu aku merapek meraban pasal beberapa rilisan lain ada lagi kot kat sini semua..

http://deaf-angel.blogspot.sg/search/label/art%20fadzil%20rausyanfikir



Ni video clip lagu Play Like Fandi, satu satu nya lagu omputeh,  ada part masa zaman Fandi main dengan Kuala Lumpur zaman dato apa tu famous tu.. haha..
yang dorang menang Malaysia Cup 3 kali berturut2 tu...
last part kelakar giler...





k dah tu je kot...


sorry la blog ni dah bukan sendu dah, tapi dah kejong tahap cipan..

so dari segi hurray hurray yang bermain dalam minda...

next post aku akan summarize semua Judas Priest rilisan zaman Ripper Owens...
Jugulator, Demolition dan dua live albums Meltdown 98 dan Live In London...



macam cakap kat atas, aku tunggu khabar berita dari budak2 FB pasal Juara Juara Rock nye show, dorang jugak cakap ada pasal Pumpkin United..
so kita tunggu...

Iron Maiden Legacy Of The Beast openings kat Estonia, Finland dan Sweden first 4 shows aku belum plan apa2 lagi walau tiket aku dah ada, .. mampos... haha. Entah berjaya ke tak plan aku nak backpack untuk tour ni..  aku masih nervous Scandinavia Ramadhan Summer time puasa 20 jam lebih kot.. haha...
