  • ıntrosunun aşırı şekilde wasted years'ın introsuna benzediği şarkı. (bkz: oldu mu şimdi)
  • sözlerini de yazayım tam olsun:

    wandering aimlessly in a cold dark mist i follow
    walking in a dark world that’s been
    kissed with sadness
    without sunlight things are born
    to the dead of nightmares
    soulless demons laughing in a sea of madness

    listen closely to the raven’s call
    praying hard for our world not to end
    try as might to make sense of it all
    will it be for the penance of men
    follow north for the call of the wild
    look all out for a small wayward child
    lay in fear as the dark raven crows
    look for guidance from the one who knows
    he lived on this earth for a time and a half
    playing a tune to the old man’s laugh
    the fear that’s inside the men of the oath
    in the script of the book that he wrote

    ask them the questions
    tell them no lies
    a cry for freedom
    praying that they wouldn’t die
    mind over matter
    cry over sins
    their lives are over now
    ended before they begin

    as the raven again passes by
    i can hear all the wake fathers cry
    that the first born of all men will die
    that their lives will be taken from them
    face the danger a battle of wills
    strength and courage a cure for all ills
    we believe in that thou shall not kill
    but others are ready to spill
    the hearts of all men since beginning of time
    living with temptation
    wanting and crime
    a walk in the shadow of the valley of death
    knowing ı’ll take my last breath

    ask them the questions
    tell them no lies
    a cry for freedom
    praying that they wouldn’t die
    mind over matter
    cry over sins
    their lives are over now
    ended before they begin

    the hearts of all men since beginning of time
    living with temptation
    wanting and crime
    a walk in the shadow of the valley of death
    knowing ı’ll take my last breath

    ask them the questions
    tell them no lies
    a cry for freedom
    praying that they wouldn’t die
    mind over matter
    cry over sins
    their lives are over now
    ended before they begin

    into the valley of death fear no evil
    we will go forward no matter the cost
    ınto the valley of death follow me now
    bring me your souls and ı’ll make it our last

    ask them the questions
    tell them no lies
    a cry for freedom
    praying that they wouldn’t die
    mind over matter, cry over sins
    their lives are over now
    ended before they begin
  • albümün en iyilerinden biri. book of souls, bütün olarak alışılagelmiş, doğu ezgileri taşıyan maidenesque melodiler bakımından fakir gibi geliyor ilk başta fakat bu kısırlık değil. maiden biraz değişik bir şeyler denemiş. harmanlanmış melodiler var bu kez. tam anlatamadım. bi kaç ay daha dinleyeyim hele.
  • wasted years gibi baslayip fallen angel gibi devam eden yeni albumun en iyi parcalarindan. janick sololarda ustaligini konusturmus yine ve neden iyi bir besteci oldugunu gostermis bir kez daha. konserlerde banko calinacaktir.
  • konserlerde marş gibi söylenecek, seyirciyi delirtecek. demişti dersiniz.
  • setlistte olmaması şaşırtmıştır
