Iron Maiden

           

IRON MAIDEN is an English heavy metal band formed in 1975 by bassist and primary songwriter Steve Harris. They are considered one of the most successful heavy metal bands in history and have sold over 100 million copies of their albums worldwide. The band's discography includes 38 albums, including sixteen studio albums, twelve live albums, four EPs, and seven compilations.

Some of their best-selling albums include a string of hits:The Number of the Beast (1982), 1983's Piece of Mind, 1984's Powerslave, 1985's live release Live After Death, 1986's Somewhere in Time and 1988's Seventh Son of a Seventh Son.

Steve Harris attributes the band's name to a film adaptation of The Man in the Iron Mask novel by Alexandre Dumas, which reminded him of the medieval iron maiden. That was a medieval torture device that placed a person upright in a coffin that had a spiked door that pierced the person when the lid was closed.
