Metal Review: Iron Maiden: The Book of Souls (2015)

Iron Maiden: The Book of Souls

It is hard to believe that a band can exist more than four decades and still be doing things for the first time, but with Iron Maiden’s latest opus, The Book of Souls, this marks the British veterans’ first double studio album. More so than just putting out an hour and a half of music,
