Best Iron Maiden Album Covers

The Top Ten

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.

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

Best cover - so many little details hidden everywhere on it

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!

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 its so great!

The most remembered Iron Maiden cover of all time..

It's just perfect.

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

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.

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.

Seventh Son of a Seventh Son Seventh Son of a Seventh Son Product Image

A simple yet beautiful album cover and my most favorite Iron Maiden album cover

Probably, along with Powerslave the most clean and for sure the most surreal of Derek Riggs' work with Maiden
1. Seventh Son
2. Somewhere in Time
3. Live After Death
4. Powerslave

Fear of the Dark Fear of the Dark Product Image

The eddie on tree classic

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

Imagine you’re walking in the forest at midnight. You look up and you see Eddie as a tree monster. That’s unsettling.

Favorite album and favorite album cover!

Best album cover for the best album!

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!

Brave New World Brave New World Product Image
No Prayer for the Dying No Prayer for the Dying Product Image

Really cool cover, album itself is sub par though

Virtual XI Virtual XI Product Image

Most people can't see the awesomeness in this album cover. It's not the best, but not bad either.

This cover has a lot of contrast, and it makes it pop

The Book of Souls The Book of Souls Product Image

It's simple but I love the presentation of Eddie here.

Amazing album!

This one is just SCARY!

Scariest cover ever

Aces High (Single) Aces High (Single) Product Image

How is Dance of Death above this? Come on! The Dance of death album cover is terrible. No Derek Riggs painting should ever fall below that monstrosity!

Running Free (Single) Running Free (Single) Product Image
Dance of Death Dance of Death Product Image

Great music, but crummy album art by Maiden standards...

The cover has many errors but it looks good!

This album cover is s**t.
The only reason I voted is to tell everyone that this cover art sucks.
How is it that some of you think that it "looks good"?!?!
Because you have mental disorders, that's why.
