Iron Maiden - Powerslave (Remastered) (CD)

'Powerslave' was the fifth studio album by English heavy metal band Iron Maiden, first released on 3 September 1984 on EMI in Europe and its sister label Capitol Records in the US.

It is notable for its Ancient Egyptian theme displayed in the cover artwork, lifted from the title track, which was carried over to the album's supporting tour. The release also contains a musical re-telling of Samuel Taylor Coleridge's "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner", which uses pieces of the original poem as lyrics and is, furthermore, Iron Maiden's longest song to date (at thirteen minutes and 40 seconds in length).

Powerslave is also notable as being the band's first album to feature the same lineup as the previous one, which would remain intact for two further studio releases.

Parlophone Records will continue their reissues series of the Iron Maiden catalogue with The Studio Collection – Remastered, covering the band's sixteen-strong studio albums across their career to date. 
 
Following on from 2014/2017's black vinyl releases, The Studio Collection – Remastered will be released on the Digipak CD format, with the track listing matching the original UK releases. The recordings are taken from the same remasters as the 2015 hi-res digital releases.
 
Maiden founding member and bassist Steve Harris says, "We've wanted to revisit these for a long time and I was delighted with the remastering we did in 2015. I thought it was the best that our albums have ever sounded and it was only right that we made them available on CD now too."
