Iron Maiden Turns Their Album Art Into Video Games In Their Latest Music Video

In a video that you’d think they would have attempted 10 years ago, Iron Maiden is taking their mascot through a surprisingly comprehensive tour of video game history, as interpreted through their album art.

Yes, if you were wondering what the cover of Run to the Hills looked like as a fighting game, or what Somewhere in Time looks like as a Commander Keen-esque shooter, well, you have your answer. There are, of course, plenty of other gags for metalheads hidden in the video, starting with the first shot, but those we won’t spoil; just keep an eye out when you watch it.
