Less for 48 hours to… crack the Iron Maiden riddle


The Iron Maiden riddle about “Belshazzar’s Feast” will be solved on Thursday, July 15th.

A new album is expected to be released with a possible title “Writing On The Wall”, according to most scripts.

“July the 15th. Rain or shine, heaven or hell, man or beast, you’re invited to Belshazzar’s Feast… But your mum can’t come”, was Bruce Dickinson’s video message.

Today July 13th almost 48 hours before the official announcement of the band the following teaser was released:

This was not the first time that “Balthazzar’s Feast” was mentioned, as in late June Dickinson appeared in a TV interview with Sky News, during which he said “I cannot tell you what it is, but it is in front of you”.

Also, a “Balthazzar’s Feast” poster appeared at the recent Download Pilot festival on 15/07 with the caption “IMXVII”, which is supposed to mean “Iron Maiden 17”, the 17th album of Iron Maiden.
