Best Iron Maiden Album Covers

The Top Ten

1 Somewhere In Time

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.

Can you see the Batman there?

2 Number of the Beast

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

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

4 Powerslave

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.

I Don't Like Iron Maiden But I Have To Admit That This Album And it's Cover Are The Best From Iron Maiden. - 12cc

5 Piece of Mind

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!

7 Fear of the Dark

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

The Contenders

11 Live After Death

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.

12 The Final Frontier

Best album cover for the best album! - teracom

16 From the Fear to Eternity
17 Virtual XI

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

18 The X Factor V 1 Comment
19 Aces High (Single)
20 Dance of Death

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

The cover has many errors but it looks good! - teracom
