The Essential Iron Maiden Cover Artwork Posted


Recommended Posts

IRON MAIDEN fan site MaidenFans.com has uploaded the cover artwork for MAIDEN's forthcoming greatest hits album "The Essential Iron Maiden". Check it out at this location.


As expected, the cover doesn't feature an Eddie drawing, but a picture of the band, in line with other Sony/BMG "Essential" collections of greatest hits. The release is expected between July 7, according to the Sony Store, and July 12 according to the latest Sony press release.

"The Essential Iron Maiden" features some of the greatest heavy metal music ever recorded.

Every studio album and lineup of IRON MAIDEN is represented here. The package also includes sleeve notes from noted journalist Lonn Friend.

Is that running free and Iron Maiden with Bruce?

I'm guessing so.

This is a pile of shit. If they want to rehash old material, at least make it Live albums. Not greatest hits, their last album was a greatest hits too (Edward The Great, which as moreblack pointed out did not have Hallowed on it)

They have a new live album out in August "Death on the Road" from the Dance of Death tour (it's a CD and DVD) so that's cool.

The artwork. Hey it's got Janick on it I'm not complaining! The reason for the shitty artwork, is the guy who drew all the Eddie's is like really ill, and has been for some time. That's why Dance of Death and Brave New World Eddie's are a pile of shit.

Ha yeah, I love Jannick Gers. He really outdid himself with that song (Dance Of Death).

He really makes the grade in Bruce's Tattoed Millionaire album.

I can't wait for the live CD/DVD from the Death On The Road Tour, comming later this year.


We can only hope it features classic Janick moves, such as "kicking the cameraman while soloing" and "Punching Dave in the face while Adrian solos"

Edit: and hooking arms with another guitarist and doing a sort of can can move.

Well, personally, I'm glad they finally have an album cover of the band. You don't know how many people I know are Iron Maiden fans and have about 5 of their albums and still don't know what the band members look like. <_< I'm just dissapointed that they could've been more creative for the album picture.

Also, I would've prefered Wildest Dreams, Montsegur or Dance of Death over Paschendale.
