IRON MAIDEN: 'The Reincarnation Of Benjamin Breeg' Single Artwork Revealed

According to MaidenNorway.com, the artwork for "The Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg", the first single from the new IRON MAIDEN album, "A Matter of Life and Death", has been posted online on the IMOC (Iron Maiden Online Club) forum. Check it out at this location.

As previously reported, IRON MAIDEN's video for "The Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg" has been made available for streaming at YouTube.com.

Kerrang! magazine has previously described "The Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg" as "an intricate seven-minute epic that starts with a creepy, ominous intro before erupting into a crushing, almost LED ZEPPELIN-esque riff and a powerful, emotive chorus. More obtuse lyrically than most of the album, it's a curious, challenging choice for a single."

"It's very different for us," admitted the band's bassist, Steve Harris. "It's very riffy. The intro has an almost nursery rhyme eeriness. Sometimes you try to create a mood and sometimes it's just there. Everyone's going to ask who Benjamin Breeg is, but you'll just have to find out for yourself!"
