    I think it's great. The only thing i don't like is the steel-coloured IRON MAIDEN. They shuold just have 1 plain colour like they always have...

    It's a bloody improvement over the Dance of Death artwork, that's for sure!

    For the last 26 years Eddie's looked odd. What are you on about?

    I reckon it looks alright. Anything's better than the Dance of Death cover. Well, except for a Judas Priest cover.

    The drawing looks like it's from a comic or that airbrushed look, I'm not good with drawing things.

    I think it's a good cover, it's no 'Killers' but it's still pretty good i say.

    That annihilates the abonination that was the Dance Of Death cover.

    I do wonder how it would have looked with 'Iron Maiden' behind the tree on the left as well but it's pretty damn sexy.

    That said i would rather they went with their traditional cover style..but I'll live.

    It looks more like an Iced Earth cover than an Iron Maiden cover... which isn't really a bad thing anyway. Very cool.

    For some reason the first thing that popped into my head was the cover of Iced Earth's "The Glorious Burden". Agreed, much better than DoD, but very comic book like.

    That some reason would be because it's extremely similar stylistically. I thought 'Something Wicked This Way Comes' as soon as I saw it.

    It's OK. By Maiden album cover standards, it's fairly ordinary though.

    I think the flag on the tank should be the Union Jack.

    It's no Somewhere In Time, but it's pretty good.

    And I think I must be the only one who didn't mind the DoD cover. It suited what they were doing stylistically. If this cover is representative of the new album, bring it on! \m/
