K!1734: Iron Maiden – 28 Pages Of Ed-Banging Stories!

PLUS! Chester Bennington, Judas Priest, Neck Deep, Crossfaith, Rise Against, As It Is, Halestorm, Smashing Pumpkins, Gojira and LOADS more!

Theirs is a story that takes in towering highs with soul-searching lows. One that features battles with life-threatening illness, extreme religious groups, countless pretenders to their throne – and, occasionally, each other. But through it all, the march of Iron Maiden has proved unstoppable. With their spectacular Legacy Of The Beast tour coming to an end this week, Kerrang! presents the full, uncensored history, album by album, of one of music’s greatest ever legends…

If that’s not enough Maiden for you, we’ve teamed up with the band and Heavy Metal Publishing to bring you an exclusive Eddie print from the Legacy Of The Beast graphic novel!

Elsewhere in the mag this week, we put Metal God Rob Halford’s remarkable career under the microscope; Neck Deep tell us what’s next; and Lzzy Hale of Halestorm talks riffs, rebellion and reveals an ill-advised disregard for road safety regulations.

In the reviews section, meanwhile, Crossfaith show big intent and enormous ideas on sci-fi-themed concept album, while As It Is set their sights on new ground with their ambitious third effort. On the live front, Billy Corgan and the reunited classic line-up of Smashing Pumpkins are reborn in New York, and Employed To Serve smash London.

We’ve also got a very special 10-page Chester Bennington pull-out mag, celebrating his incredible life and music.

The new issue of Kerrang! is available anywhere in the world when you order online through Newsstand. But for UK residents, it hits the shops on Wednesday, August 8 from all good newsagents.
