Iron Maiden - Powerslave (1984)
Powerslave is the fifth studio album by English heavy metal band Iron Maiden, released on 3 September 1984 on EMI in Europe and its sister label Capitol Records in the US. It was re-released by Sanctuary/Columbia Records in the US in 2002.
It is notable for its Ancient Egyptian theme displayed in the cover artwork, lifted from the title track, which was carried over to the album's supporting tour. The World Slavery Tour' began in Warsaw, Poland on 9 August 1984, and is widely regarded as being the band's longest and most arduous to date, and lead to the live album Live After Death.
The release also contains a musical re-telling of Samuel Taylor Coleridge's "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner", which uses pieces of the original poem as lyrics and is, furthermore, Iron Maiden's longest song to date (at thirteen minutes and 42 seconds in length).
Powerslave is also notable as being the band's first album to feature the same lineup as the previous one, which would remain intact for two further studio releases.
Sepatutnya entri ini ditulis semalam...tetapi disebabkan terlupa nak tangkap gambar...maka terlewat sehari...bukan nak buat ulasan pun...dah pernah tulis dah pasal album ini 4 tahun yang lalu....tetapi ini hanyalah satu tribute kepada album yang mengenalkan saya kepada terma "Heavy Metal"....album yang lagu di dalamnya (2 Minutes to Midnight) menjadikan saya insan terpilih untuk meminati muzik yang sebegini...
