Iron Maiden have unveiled an epic animated video for their first new song in six years, “The Writing on the Wall.” The single and video follow weeks speculation and hype.
The British metal legends had been teasing a mysterious event called “Belshazzar’s Feast,” leading up to today’s premiere. Fans had anticipated either a new song or album announcement.
The “feast” actually takes place within the storyline of the video, which weaves a post-apocalyptic heavy metal tale. The clip sees Iron Maiden mascot Eddie — rendered in stunning 3D form alongside standard 2D animation — as the central hero, tossing axes into the skulls of Trump-esque dictators and saving humanity from imprisonment. Be sure to stick around for the twist ending. Via COS
