IRON MAIDEN!

Recently Rock Metal legends Iron Maiden reunited and did a concert in NYC. Many of my childhood friends attended the show. It bought back memories for me. Not so much of their music but of the amazing artwork by the great Derek Riggs. A contemporary British artist best known for creating the Iron Maiden's mascot, "Eddie the Head". Very edgy, very creepy imagery that worked in conjunction with the brand that was Iron Maiden. It also made me think of how much I miss the full scale album art. It really is a lost craft. I was going to do a top 10 album cover art posting, but for this, I feel that Iron Maiden album art deserves it's own posting. Check out the work!
