Since IRON MAIDEN released details of their upcoming album, Book of Souls, the metal world has been trembling in anticipation. Initially delayed due to singer Bruce Dickinson‘s battle with cancer, Book of Souls will be released on the 4th of September (only just over a month away, we can make it!) following their 2010 album, The Final Frontier.
Book of souls clocks in at 92 minutes, featuring an 18 minute song which will replace Rime of the Ancient Mariner as their longest track, and drummer Nicko McBrain is confident that their 16th album will be IRON MAIDEN’s best ever release,saying that ”This one, without a doubt, is the best record we’ve ever made.”
and judging from these 28 seconds, the legions of MAIDEN fans will not be disappointed.
Book of Souls is available to preorder via the official IRON MAIDEN website.
