Video games are awesome. Video games are mainstream. Video games are art. Video games are so awesome they’re getting less successful and more successful tributes in other forms of art. While Adam Sandler’s Pixels tanked in the movie theaters even though it had almost everything to become a runaway hit (beside plot holes and horrible acting), Iron Maiden knows how to do it right.
Legendary heavy metal group just released their new video, named Speed of Light. Whole video is a tribute to legendary computer games of yesteryear, going from 2D arcades to 3D shooters, and if you are an old school, or a vintage collector – you should enjoy the video which features Eddie the Head (group’s mascot) like never before. Given that Bruce Dickinson received an ‘all-clear’ in his battle with cancer, we might see Iron Maiden back on tour again.
Watch the video again, and let us know how many video games you think are given their tributes during this short-but-sweet music video. Speed of Light will be featured on The Book of Souls album, which comes out on September 4th, 2015.
