A new Iron Maiden album?

Compass Point Studio

Compass Point Studio - Nassau, Bahamas

According to Kevin Shirley’s diary, a new Iron Maiden album is set to be released any time soon. He mentions that the band’s work is all done, but he still has some bits to do, which won’t take long. What I find intriguing is where the band decided to record the album. They chose no less than the Compass Point Studio in Nassau, Bahamas. The same studio where 17 years ago they recorded Piece of Mind (my favourite Maiden album), and then Powerslave in 1984, and then, once again, Somewhere In Time in 1986. Those are considered by many the top 3 Maiden albums ever recorded. So, why did they choose to record there again after so many years? Nostalgia? Probably…
