The Iron Maiden Vault, published at the zenith of the band's current resurgence, and as they embark on 100-plus concert world tour, is the first Maiden book to feature rare, removable memorabilia from the band's amazing 40-year career. These include posters, flyers, backstage passes and rare prints, all of which take fans closer to the band than has ever been possible before. Written by a leading music journalist and featuring previously unpublished interview content, The Iron Maiden Vault is the ultimate interactive celebration of the ground-breaking rock group. With 15 items of removable facsimile memorabilia, including posters, tickets, flyers and signed photographs, The Iron Maiden Vault gives the reader a front-row seat (and backstage access) to the career of these true legends of Heavy Metal. Formed in 1975, Iron Maiden - named after a particular type of torturing device - were welcomed into the hearts of millions of metal fans as the pioneers of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. The band's astonishing 70-million record-selling-career began with the breakthrough success of their multi-million-selling second album Number of the Beast in 1982. It is regarded as one of the most influential records of all time and the band is recognised globally as one of the greatest heavy metal acts in history.
