Iron Maiden

Album Description:

POWERSLAVE is the fifth studio album by the English heavy metal band Iron Maiden, released on September 2, 1984 on EMI in Europe and its sister label Capitol Records in the U.S. It is notable for its Egyptian theme displayed in the album art, as well as in the title track''s musical style. The album is also notable amongst the band''s albums as being the first to feature the same lineup as the previous one, helping Maiden produce another metal classic. "2 Minutes to Midnight" and "Aces High" were released as singles. Once POWERSLAVE was in stores, Maiden undertook one of the longest rock tours in history - WORLD SLAVERY TOUR, playing from August 1984 through July 1985. WORLD SLAVERY TOUR supporting the album began in Poland. It was a time in which the band had become a worldwide arena-headlining sensation.

While most other metal bands of the era were still singing about partying, Maiden continued to tackle some serious, thought-provoking subject matter. The band addresses the threat of nuclear war on aforementioned "2 Minutes to Midnight," World War II-era fighter pilots in the album-opening "Aces High," and the demise of an Egyptian king in the title track. The lyrics to long and winding "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" are influenced from Samuel Taylor Coleridge''s poem of the same name (drawing heavily from his 1815-16 gloss), and directly quote two passages from the poem, the former including the famous lines of "Water, water everywhere - nor any drop to drink". 13-and-a-half-minute epic can be divided into three phases, the first subscribing to the quintessential "galloping" metal, the second (around 5 minutes in) being simple and quiet yet dark, and the final stage returning to an upbeat instrumental, and lastly repeating the initial tune. Often played in set lists from its release, the "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" is a very popular and highly-regarded song from the band. During the SOMEWHERE BACK IN TIME WORLD TOUR, Dave Murray, Bruce Dickinson and Steve Harris cited the song as their favourite to play.
