Iron Maiden return with brilliant computer game video

maiden1.jpg

Everyone needs a bit of Maiden in their life - and they're back with an absolutely banging new song.

Speed of Light is the first track to be released from the forthcoming double album The Book Of Souls and it's the best track they've done in years.

It's particularly excellent as it's the first song to emerge since frontman, pilot and all-round legend Bruce Dickenson announced his recovery from cancer earlier this year.

And if that wasn't enough, the video is a fantastic 8-bit/16-bit computer game-style romp, featuring their mascot Eddie, and includes a section where he fights the devil. Of course.

Get watching below.

The Book of Souls is released 4 September
