Iron Maiden - Powerslave -The Legendary Album

Powerslave is the fifth studio album by  Iron Maiden, released on 3 September 1984 through EMI Records in Europe and its sister label Capitol Records in North America."2 Minutes to Midnight" and "Aces High" were released as singles.it was ranked 38th on Rolling Stone's list of "100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time" According to  Nicko McBrain  Powerslave began making Iron Maiden famous "very fast, very quickly", such as in Brazil, where hundreds of fans waited outside hotels and restaurants for the band.

The song "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" was Influenced by Samuel Taylor Coleridge's poem of the same name the song directly quotes two passages from the poem, the former including the famous lines: 'Water, water everywhere – nor any drop to drink'. At over thirteen minutes long, the track contains several distinct sections with differing moods and would become a fan favourite.[ During the 2008–09 Somewhere Back in Time World Tour, guitarist Dave Murray, vocalist Bruce Dickinson and Harris cited the song as their favourite to play live.

The album's cover artwork is notable for its Ancient Egypt theme. That theme, taken from the title track, was carried over to the album's supporting tour, the World Slavery Tour.

The release contains a musical re-telling of Samuel Taylor Coleridge's The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, the lyrics of which include some lines from the poem. At 13 minutes and 45 seconds in length, this was Iron Maiden's longest song for over 30 years until it was surpassed by the 18-minute "Empire of the Clouds" from the 2015 album The Book of Souls.

Powerslave is notable as the band's first album to feature the same personnel as their previous studio release. This lineup would remain intact for two further studio releases. It is also their last album to date to feature an instrumental piece, and the only one on which longtime member and guitarist Dave Murray does not have a songwriting credit.
