In a brand new interview with Ronan McGreevy of The Irish Times, IRON MAIDEN drummer Nicko McBrain spoke

about the making of the band’s new album, “The Book Of Souls”.


“We talked about doing an album three years ago when we were all at the bar drinking,” he said. “We were all looking at each other and we were saying to each other, ‘Will we do another record? [2010’s] ‘The Final Frontier’ was a cracker.

“We knew we were going to do another album. It has taken five years since the last one, or has it? The years seem to get shorter as you get older. It’s in our DNA. Our fans still support IRON MAIDEN. I suppose, you know, we could go fart in a paper bag and most people would go, ‘Cor, that’s a bit alright. It’s not bad, is it?’ [Laughs] But we don’t. We go and make these great albums and this is the best one yet.”
