Shame on you Iron Maiden

For me (and for many others im sure) the covers of the old Iron maiden albums were fabulous piece of art and a good inspiration now that dereck Riggs is no more the artist behind theses creations the quality is not the same, their last album was good(brave new world)

But look at the worst maiden cover ever...its for the new album release date is in september!!!

How a major band like Maiden can do this... someone have to do something

Major Band???

I hear they've been playing half filled bars for the last 10 years. The art was the band, and this is about what I expected.

OMG that cover is AWFUL!!! :thumbsdow

I would definitely say that Maiden is without a doubt the greatest and most influential of the NWOBHM bands Sure their ability to fill stadiums may have waned somewhat, but they still have huge shows that dwarf many contemporary acts (just look at Rock In Rio).

I know its surely impossible to make somthing about that cover...they surely begin the production in high number but i would be cool to do something maybe some complaints can do something before its too late!!!

Really, one of my buds went and saw them in the UK a year or two ago and he had laughable pictures of this big elaborate stage set up at a little club and about 20 people there talking while they played... no fans but him and his buddy.

The baby on the dog is my favourite.

I just finished watching FUBAR, so I can really appreciate the quality of this album artwork.

In other Iron Maiden news, the drummer assaulted someone with a car:

Iron Maiden's album "artwork" is a much worse crime than assaulting someone with a car.

The horrible thing is that I could have even used Poser and made something better than that in one day. I would have only charged $20 too...
