An amazing event has begun. Iron Maiden’s Ed Force One jet has docked with the Sirius XM satellite, and for a solid week the Channel 40 will rain unholy Maiden upon the land. That means the entire new double-album, The Book of Souls; classic material; entire live concert sets; plus straight talk between songs by members of Iron Maiden themselves.
Bruce Dickinson flipped the switch at Two Minutes To Midnight ET (8:58pm PT) on Monday, August 31st. He will also host a live three-hour special at 10PM ET on Thursday, September 3, taking calls the hundreds of bars and fans across North America hosting Iron Maiden listening parties the night before the new album’s worldwide release.
And so BLOODY ROOTS OF IRON MAIDEN, a daily one-hour crash course in Iron Maiden history, capturing one of metal’s three most crucial bands in its element with live material ranging from 1979 to 2012, with a few rarities thrown in from the Paul Dianno and Bruce Dickinson eras for good measure.
