Iron Maiden's New Music Video Brings A Tear To A Gamer's Eye

Now here's a band that loves their video games!

Iconic English metal band Iron Maiden has released a new music video for the song, "Speed Of Light," and the primary theme is old-school, classic games. Yup.

This video is a well-built homage to games released over the past forty years, probably because Iron Maiden is currently celebrating their 40th anniversary (feel old?). Watch the video below; it portrays the band's famous mascot, Eddie, traveling through time and becoming the hero of various classic titles. You'll see everything from Donkey Kong to Call of Duty and a whole lot in between, so kudos!

"Speed of Light" is featured on the band's upcoming album, The Book of souls, which releases next month. It'll be their 18th album.

One of my top three bands. Phenomenal musicians, phenomenal stage, and all around good people.

Cause there weren't already enough reasons for this to be my favorite band.
