This Iron Maiden ‘Powerslave’ ring will make you run from the bill

Posted by on November 9, 2015

Powerslave and it’s ensuing tour, captured on 1985’s Live After Death, may be Iron Maiden’s finest moment. Songs like “Aces High” and “2 Minutes to Midnight” rank up there with anything the band’s done since, and transforming Eddie into a pharaoh/sphinx for the cover found the band at their most iconic, as far as album art is concerned. Now you can purchase, via London jeweler The Great Frog, a sterling silver “Powerslave Eddie” ring. The first of four proposed official Iron Maiden rings doesn’t come particularly cheap though, costing £240.00 (or $362 American).

This isn’t the first time the band’s worked with the brand. In fact, this isn’t even the first time they’ve worked together on something Powerslave-related, as The Great Frog worked with the  band in 1984 and ’85 on a Powerslave belt buckle for the World Slavery tour. Each ring will be numbered and come with a certificate of authenticity. So while it’s definitely a little pricey, if you’re a metalhead that likes rings, you should probably pick one up. Metal Hammer has posted a video of the making of the ring, which you can see below.
