The Irons unveil a clip from forthcoming album
The first snippet of audio from the mighty Maiden's upcoming album, 'The Books Of Souls' has been released online.
As pre-orders for the mammoth double album start today, the metal legends have unveiled a 30-second snippet of new music from the release – complete with an appearance by the menacing Eddie! Check it out below, and let us know what you think!
The new album, which was recorded in Paris with the band’s longstanding producer Kevin "Caveman" Shirley, was completed before vocalist Bruce Dickinson had a brush with cancer.
Thankfully, he was given the all-clear from a tumour on his tongue in May of this year. Steve Harris has stated that the band will return to tour the new album at some point next year, once Bruce is fully recuperated and back up to match fitness! We can't wait!
The Book Of Souls is released on 4th September.
