* HarpoDoesSomethingFunny/EnforcedMethodActing: Both Janick and Steve revealed that for ''The Book of Souls'', rather than spending weeks in the studio writing stuff and laying it all down, then recording it in two weeks as done in the past, the majority of the work was done in-studio- most of the songs were written, rehearsed a few times and then recorded while they were still fresh, to provide a sense of immediacy and spontaniety, as well as a "live" feel.

** Janick Gers went on record to admit that the band perhaps shouldn't have tried pushing Blaze Bayley beyond his natural register, as they did during the Virtual XI World Tour, and that the band should've taken some responsibility rather than just fire him
