Sonicbond Edition has published “Iron Maiden: every album, every song”, a new book by the author Steve pilkington.
Mention the words “heavy metal” and there’s a good chance one of the first names you’ll get is IRON MAIDEN. From their beginnings as pioneers of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal in 1980, to their epic and progressive works of more recent times, the band has been “everything for all men” in the metal world. Such is their profile that even the non-metal fan would likely cite them as a key example of the genre. This book lifts the veil on every track recorded by the band, album by album, since the punk beginnings with the original singer. Paul Di’Anno, through the glory years led by Bruce dickinson, until the sprawling epic of the double disc “The Book of Souls”.
Through facts, anecdotes, analyzes and a spoonful of opinion, Pilkington provides both an informative companion for the die-hard fan and a perfect roadmap for the more casual listener to follow. Of “Prowler” To “Empire of the Clouds”, through every line-up change, it’s every number recorded by The Beast – the ultimate recording story of IRON MAIDEN.
“Iron Maiden: every album, every song” is now available in paperback.
