Best Iron Maiden Album Covers

The Top Ten
1 Somewhere In Time Somewhere In Time Product Image

The blade runner style is amazing and there are so many references to other Iron Maiden songs and albums in the artwork.

My favourite is the clock saying "23:58"

The most perfect album art, in terms of detail, dimensions, and nostalgia references to stuff related to maiden.

Defnitely the best cover and the best album. Eddie the robot rocks beats the mummy by miles.

Derek Riggs is a genius. It's a shame the band didn't hold on to him.

2 Number of the Beast Number of the Beast Product Image

The most iconic Iron maiden album covers are from The Number of The Beast, Powerslave, Fear of the Dark, Killers and Piece of Mind.

The best cover for the very best Iron Maiden album. Love it to death!

3 Killers Killers Product Image

Wow. This is a great album cover. It is very creative. I like it a lot and it looks great. Why hasn't anyone commented it's so great!

Gotta' love this! The imagining story of the title track after seeing this cover feels amazing! -MaidenReignsHeavyMetal

The most remembered Iron Maiden cover of all time..

Is this Eddie female?

4 Powerslave Powerslave Product Image

My father got all Maiden vynils classic... I took hours to look at this album when I was 10 years old. My life changed since this images.

The details are very neat and predominant on this album, and there are a few hidden images/references to previous albums. Granted, Somewhere in Time has way more references, but I find that distracting. This cover is clean and classy!

The Egyptian theme makes Maiden's best album also their best album cover. This cover actually made me think of To Tame a Land when I first saw it (you know the whole desert thing)

This is the definitive image of the best Iron Maiden album, this image passes the power of what you're going to listen.

5 Piece of Mind Piece of Mind Product Image

Piece of Mind should be much higher. Although it is a very simple cover, it has so many details and I for one love it. UP THE IRONS!

An album cover that one, quite simply, cannot forgot.

6 Fear of the Dark Fear of the Dark Product Image

Creepiest cover ever seen! The songs in the album are not that good (except a few) but the cover art surely hooks you up for some time! -MaidenReignsHeavyMetal

Creepiest cover ever seen! The songs in the album art not that (except a few) but the cover art surely hooks you up with the songs! -MaidenReignsHeavyMetal

Great cover, great songs. Overall my favourite album of all time. This cover is actually the backpatch on my battle jacket. m/

The eddie on tree classic

13 Live After Death Live After Death Product Image

Why is this one getting overlooked? Because there's no thumbnail and you forgot? My personal favourite.

I'm not sure if people know that this album exist, that maybe why they haven't vote for it.

Come on...look at this!

Simply the best!
