The reaper looks pretty cool, and it looks hand drawn. Is that an "Eddie-reaper?"

To me, it looks like the reaper may be real, but someone with really bad cgi skills just added the little masked people. I think this one may be a hoax fellas.

Hope the reaper is real though.

Unfortunately, I think it is the real cover as they are already selling a shirt based off of that artwork, check it out:

I don't know who would buy a shirt that looked like that but I definitely won't be purchasing one. As a matter of fact, I don't even think I'm going to see them this year as the venue they are playing in here in San Antonio, TX is an outdoor venue and I am sick and tired of outdoor concerts. Not to mention that it's an amphitheater and it's assigned seating in the amphitheater itself. There is a general admission lawn area but it's a half-mile away from the band and you can't even see em. I'm 33 now and I just don't feel like spending the evening in the sweltering heat outdoors. Guess that means I'm getting old....

LOL! That's pretty funny.

Yeah, that cover kinda sucks. The reaper does look cool, but other than that I give it a big "Whah?" What's with the baby in the bikini riding the dog? This is weird, not to mention the images are just terrible. I really hope they make up for it with the music.

Easily their worst cover art ever. Looks like they didn't have much of a budget for it given the cheapo CG in use here. At least the single rocks.

At least the cover has its own character. You won't be confusing this cover with other Iron Maiden covers, so that's good.

I don't think it's the worst Maiden even as bad as it is. worst is pretty much always going to be that disgusting X Factor artwork.

WHAT? That was a Derek Riggs cover and it's great! The psychotic mascot of Bruce (Eddison) was ultra cool. This is just crap made by a 2 yeard-old learning CGI on a Commodore 64. [img]images/smiles/icon_mad.gif[/img]

"Accident of Birth" is one of the best all-time covers.

This one is rough on the eyes, kinda the caliber of the "world needs a hero" by megadeth...
