Ever wanted to get a reverse angle of certain metal album artworks? Well, now you have the chance.
Here’s a look at what Eddie sees on the cover of Iron Maiden‘s Killers. It’s pretty good. Click here for a bigger version.
Unfortunately we don’t know exactly who made these, so if you know, send us an email. We got them from the awesome Facebook page called And Justice for Art. Thanks guys!
I tried AC/DC beer and I wasn’t a huge fan. I mean, it wasn’t bad, but as a beer pro, imported Heineken from Amsterdam or an Austrian beer called Ottakringer is my poison of choice.
However, as a Maiden fan and an alcoholic, I really want to try this beer. I have yet to see it in stores though, but apparently it’s doing quite good in other places…
According to The Morning Advertiser, Trooper (that’s what the beer is called, yo!) has sold over 3.5 million pints without any promotion whatsoever from Robinsons, the company brewing it.
Well, duh. Iron Maiden is one of the most popular heavy metal bands of all time, and they have a hugely recognizable name. You can bet a lot of metalheads and dumbasses pretending to be metalheads have bought that beer just because of their name.
Try selling a Trivium beer without promotion, see where that gets ya.
White men came, across the sea
They brought us beer, for our misery…

In case you missed yesterday’s big news (where were you?), the mighty Maiden have announced they will be returning to Europe in 2013 to play a number of stadiums, arenas and festivals around the continent. The first date to be announced is at the UK’s Download Festival on Saturday June 15th, when Iron Maiden will return to the hallowed Donington Park to headline for a fifth time! (following 1988,1992, 2003 & 2007).
You can read more about it over at the official Iron Maiden site here.

Iron Maiden have released a trailer for their upcoming live album/video release, called En Vivo! En Vivo means ugly hairdo in Spanish, so it’s clear why they’ve called it that.
While it looks good, I couldn’t help but feel cheated. I mean, they taped the thing in Chile. I somehow get the feeling that any band can go to South America and make a killer live DVD. Does using that stereotype make me a douchebag? Sure, but it doesn’t make me wrong. The album comes out March 26/27 (worldwide/North America).
The voice behind the classic intro to ‘The Number of The Beast’ passed away. He was 80.
Barry Clayton, whose voice we shall forever remember because we listen to real music, not that dumb hip-hop crap, was hired by Iron Maiden when the horror actor who was supposed to get the job asked for too much money.
You can read a bit more about him here. In the meantime, I’ll leave you with the words you already know from the song you have loved for years.
“Woe to You Oh Earth and Sea
For the Devil sends the beast with wrath
Because he knows the time is short
Let him who have understanding
Reckon the number of the beast
For it is a human number
Its number is six hundred and sixty six.“
