Description

Iron Maiden, one of the most successful heavy metal bands in the world, released their 5th studio album «Powerslave» in September 1984. Derek Riggs’ brilliantly illustrated album cover portrays Eddie, the band’s mascot, stylised as a pharaoh from ancient Egypt.

The record was their second million-selling hit after 1983’s «Piece of Mind», from which two successful singles were released – «2 Minutes to Midnight» and «Aces High». However, what truly sets «Powerslave» apart are not just the thundering beats and electrifying riffs, it is the enigmatic allure of the cover. A cryptic riddle centered around Egyptian mythology which has fascinated fans for decades and draws them in to decode its secret messages.
