Riot Radio – Iron Maiden – Speed of Light

Wreck It Eddie

After surviving cancer, plane crashes and god knows what else in his spare time, iconic Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson has proven just as indestructible as the band’s stalwart zombified mascot Eddie. To match Dickinson’s trials and tribulations in the real world, the band’s latest video sends Eddie into the video game world, to fight his way through kick-ass metal approximations of Donkey Kong, Contra and Mortal Kombat, along with an FPS sequence that looks just like the Maiden inspired Saturn/PsOne era shooter Powerslave in “Speed of Light”.

Iron Maiden’s highly anticipated new record “The Book of Souls” drops on September 4th.
