The Book of Souls: Speed of Light by Iron Maiden


I was quite surprised by Iron Maiden's latest offering Speed of Light. The band still has some gas left in the creativity tank. Speed of Light brings Eddie the mascot to the forefront in video game glory. Eddie is no stranger to the gaming realm. The band is 40 years old, just as old as the gaming industry. Metal-heads took their vitamins and played arcade games ritually till both metal and arcades gathered dust to once again to be revisited by Iron Maiden's double album The Book of Souls. I hope the rest of the album is as good as Speed of Light. Time to get those old Maiden rock t-shirts out of the closets.
