Calling all ‘Edbangers!
My new book Where Eagles Dare: Iron Maiden in the ‘80s has just arrived—box
upon box—and is ready for signing and shipping. It’s a hefty 288 pages, with
my usual tipped-in sections of colour photography, every song examined deeply
and all that. You’ve all been very kind in making my recent books like this on
Sabbath and Priest sell pretty damn good, so this one is very much a style
match to those.
As the back cover sez…
“Phantom of the Opera,” “Running Free,” “Wrathchild,” The Number of the
Beast,” “Hallowed Be Thy Name,” “The Trooper,” “Aces High,” “2 Minutes to
Midnight,” “Wasted Years,” “Can I Play with Madness”… these are just a few of
the many iconic heavy metal anthems of New Wave of British Heavy Metal heroes
In Where Eagles Dare: Iron Maiden in the ‘80s, now three-time Maiden author
Martin Popoff celebrates the band’s golden period, with a mischievous cheat
covering the fascinating ‘70s roots of the band en route to The Soundhouse
Tapes and the first flash of a grin from green ghoul Eddie.
Utilizing his celebrated album-by-album, song-by-song approach, Martin
deconstructs the band’s first clutch of classic of records—Iron Maiden,
Killers, The Number of the Beast, Piece of Mind, Powerslave, Live After Death,
Somewhere in Time and Seventh Son of a Seventh Son—in fan-fanatic detail, with
his usual detours into cover art, production, looks at lyrics, the ins and
outs of the band’s landmark live shows and all manner of minutiae, using
specific dates at every twist in the tale.
So what are you waiting for? Join Martin for a galloping, twin-lead
celebration of the only band to escape from the NWOBHM into hallowed halls of
gold and platinum, integrity intact, mission unchanged now 40 years later and
still going strong!
