Biography
Iron Maiden is an English heavy metal band formed in 1975. The band's musical style is rooted in heavy metal, but they have explored a number of styles throughout their five-decade career. The six-piece band has released 16 studio albums and have sold more than 90 million albums worldwide. Iron Maiden is one of the most revered bands in the genre, and their influence has reached virtually every metal subgenre. Their breakout album was 1982's Number of the Beast, which was followed by a string of commercial and critical successes throughout the 1980s. The band struggled in the 1990s after frontman Bruce Dickinson departed in 1993, following the recording of the Fear of the Dark LP. However they hit their stride again after his return to the fold in 1999.
