IRON MAIDEN - Animator VAL ANDRADE Returns With "Powerslave" Cartoon Clip; Pays Tribute To LEMMY And DAVID BOWIE

Brazil-based animator Val Andrade, who made a splash several years ago with his unique cartoons based on Iron Maiden's catalogue of songs, has returned with a new clip for the band's classic, "Powerslave", taken from the album of the same name. Check it out below, and make sure you watch to the very end...

Roadhouse Interactive, 50cc Games and Metal legends Iron Maiden have announced that Iron Maiden: Legacy Of The Beast, an action-packed, free-to-play RPG steeped in Iron Maiden mythology, will launch worldwide this summer on iOS and Android platforms.

Following a series of hit action sports titles for Red Bull Media House, Warhammer 40,000: Carnage, a Games Workshop ARPG, and Food Battle: The Game for YouTube sensations SMOSH, Roadhouse Interactive's development and publishing divisions have been working hand in hand with Iron Maiden and their Phantom Music Management team, who have granted unparalleled access to the vaults in order to create a truly authentic Iron Maiden game.

Developed in close collaboration with Iron Maiden's management, players take on the role of the band's iconic mascot, Eddie, in his many forms - each with unique abilities. Players explore new worlds, travel through time, and battle a cast of dramatic and engaging characters drawn from the expansive catalogue of Maiden's albums and art. Gameplay is enhanced with a soundtrack using songs spanning the band's entire career, including previously unheard live recordings of Iron Maiden classics adapted for the game by engineer Tony Newton under the close scrutiny of bassist and founding member Steve Harris.

"We always thought Maiden's music and imagery with Eddie could be perfect for gaming and it's something we have been looking at doing again since Ed Hunter in 1999. Now in 2016 it can all be done on a smartphone which makes it even more accessible for all our fans and also all the gamers out there," comments Harris.

Iron Maiden's latest album, The Book of Souls, was released in September 2015 to popular and critical acclaim, hitting the #1 spot in over 40 countries and reinforcing their position as one of the most relevant and influential bands in music today. This year they will embark on the The Book of Souls World tour and with fan excitement at fever pitch it's the perfect time to expand Iron Maiden's legend into gaming.

Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast will be available later this year on iOS and Android platforms. See for ongoing releases about the game.

In addition, Iron Maiden will make a highly anticipated first ever visit to China in April on The Book Of Souls World Tour, playing at Beijing LeSports Center on April 24th and Shanghai Mercedes-Benz Arena on April 26th. Tickets go on sale from 2pm on January 19th through ticketing hotline 400-610-3721, and online via
