Iron Maiden’s Eddie Goes 8-Bit And Beyond In “Speed Of Light”!

I became an Iron Maiden fan very late in my young adulthood. Many of my close friends had even been to some of their legendary shows by the time I popped in my first Maiden remastered CD for 1984’s Powerslave…blown away doesn’t really describe how I felt by the time Back in the Village ended. The very next day I visited my local mall before I reported for my shift and got down to work in picking up the rest of the albums.

So I was incredibly delighted when Daniel XIII shared this new music video over on Facebook. In the band’s latest video we get a slew of video game interpretations of the band’s album covers with Eddie visiting game worlds very familiar to us gamers.

Watching this totally made me want to play some Ed Hunter (Turn down your volume!), be warned it was a rather violent game.
