The Studio Collection – Remastered follows on from 2014/2017’s black vinyl releases and 2015’s Mastered for iTunes project and features recordings taken from the same remasters as the 2015 hi-res digital releases. The most recent studio album – The Book Of Souls – was released that year in the same quality audio, but is appearing in Digipak for the first time.

The albums supersede the previously available studio catalog and all titles will also be made available on streaming platforms.

As a bonus for collectors, one CD from each batch of releases is optionally available in a specially artwork designed box featuring a 1:24 scale figurine and exclusive patch. In the final batch, this will be A Matter Of Life And Death.

IRON MAIDEN have attracted rave reviews on their mobile game-inspired, three-month Legacy Of The Beast Tour across North, South and Central America, with Rolling Stone calling it the “pinnacle of Heavy-Metal escapism” and a “pure multi-media spectacle”. The tour included a headline performance at Rock In Rio last week, with all 100,000 tickets sold in less than two hours, and finishes with sold-out performances in Argentina and Chile.

The Legacy Of The Beast tour returns to the U.K. in June 2020 with headline performances at Download Festival (Donington) and Belsonic (Belfast), which will be the band’s only U.K. shows of next year. See their link below for full tour details.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: The Heavy Metal completists now will be able to finalize their collection and are probably already prepared for the necessary shelf space that they need to add the remaining releases to the rest of them. Well, that’s outside of the specialty figure of course which is suitable for standing on top of television cabinets or on a bookcase shelf if you have that around your living quarters. So far I’ve only managed to get the second set into my collection but will for sure look to snare all the remaining ones as soon as some surplus capital hits my wallet. What do you readers think about these last four releases from the legendary Iron Maiden? Are you planning on buying them? Did you catch that last, super thrilling tour when they visited our region? Chime in down below because that is why we have the comments open. See you next time.
