iron-maiden-collection-final-front-coverIron Maiden’s influence on generations of rock and metal bands cannot be overstated. To name just a small selection, Maiden has influenced the following bands: Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Annihilator and younger bands such as Slipknot, Fozzy, Avenged Sevenfold, In Flames and Trivium. It is obvious from said list of bands alone that Maiden’s legacy is assured for quite some time.

Celebrated rock author Neil Daniels offers a collection of his writings on the band chronicling their entire history. This book is a reference tool for die-hard fans with tour dates, setlists, discographies, reviews, interviews and much more. There are contributions from some of the world’s top metal writers as well as ex Iron Maiden members and former personnel. This is not a biography but a headbanging guide to the band’s incredible career and legendary status in heavy metal as the genre’s leading band.

Iron Maiden – Playing With Madness: A Collection Of Writings On The Beast collects a decade’s worth of writings on the great beast known as Iron Maiden. It is a book on metal for metal fans.
