Iron Maiden Releases The First Single Off Their Upcoming ‘The Book Of Souls’ Album With A Music Video
Earlier this year Iron Maiden announced their new upcoming album The Book Of Souls. Now we get to hear the first single coming off the album called Speed Of Light.
It’s a song done in true Iron Maiden fashion. It rips you a brand new one with catchy riffs and the iconic voice of Bruce Dickinson cutting through the noise. Speed of Light is a song that would’ve been just as well suited on Powerslave or The Number of the Beast. This band seriously knows how to stick to their guns.
Along with the release of the song we also got the music video for Speed Of Light. It features Eddie, the Iron Maiden mascot, making his way through a series of video games that resemble other popular video game titles.
About The Book Of Souls, Maiden drummer, Nicko McBrian, called it a “stunning piece of work”. “Every time you make a record it’s the best you’ve ever made”, he added. “This one, without a doubt, is the best record we’ve ever made. Sonically it’s brilliant. The compositions of the songs are fantastic.”
