IRON MAIDEN Post Video for “Speed of Light”

Friday, 14th August 2015

Heavy metal legends IRON MAIDEN have released a new music video for the song “Speed of Light,” which appears on the band’s upcoming double album The Book of Souls. The album is set for release on September 4th through BMG Music in the US and Parlophone Records in the rest of the world.

The “Speed Of Light” video was produced and directed by Llexi Leon with animation and visual effects by The Brewery Production Company. A huge IRON MAIDEN fan, this is Llexi Leon’s first music video. Creator of the cult comic book series Eternal Descent — an IP that digitally animated a cast list of metal and hard rock luminaries — Leon has further expanded into the video gaming industry. He chose to collaborate with The Brewery whoss previous film credits include 2010’s punk-rock inspired “Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll” with Andy Serkis, 2012’s music festival-themed “Spike Island” with Emilia Clarke, and more recently were providing VFX for the Sky Atlantic biopic on Ian Fleming. The video is a “homage” to four decades of video gaming juxta-posed alongside IRON MAIDEN’s 40 years of incredible visual canon centering on their talisman Eddie as he travels through space and time to complete his Herculean task.
