On April 11, 1988, Iron Maiden fully unfurled its progressive, imaginative beast with the release of the band’s influential and abstract seventh album, Seventh Son of a Seventh Son. Today we gaze into the impact zone of this loose concept album with a track-by-track reconstruction including B-sides, live material, album tracks, and tributes by Stormlord, After Forever, Waltari, Solstice, and more. Gaze into the oracle, and know your Roots!
