Iron Maiden are one of the most well-known, highest-selling, and best heavy metal bands of all-time. Surprisingly, they’ve had plenty of books written about them, but never a full on bible before. That all changes with the release of Hallowed By Thy Name: The Iron Maiden Bible by Martin Popoff. It’s arriving on October 28th from Schiffler Publishing. The book promises a thrilling journey through the tumultuous history of Iron Maiden.

Here’s a bit of a synopsis and description of what to expect in the book.

Dive deep into their music, stage performances, and the iconic figure of Eddie, their undead mascot. Discover the stories behind all their albums—such as Killers, The Number of the Beast, and Powerslave, through to their most recent, Senjutsu (and all solo releases)—as well as the controversies and triumphs that shaped the band. Explore the highs and lows of their evolving lineup, from the early days with Paul Di’Anno to the arrival of Bruce Dickinson and beyond. Hallowed Be Thy Name: The Iron Maiden Bible delves into the band’s conceptual depth, dissecting the themes of their songs, the inspirations behind their lyrics, and the influence they’ve had on countless artists and fans.
