The album was released in 1977.
Released on September 3, 1984, Powerslave provided the band with their second consecutive million-plus seller in the States, where it reached Number 21 in the album charts.
Coincidence? So. Aces High was inspired by the Battle Of Britain, the first battle to be fought solely in the air.. 5. It was re-released by Sanctuary/Columbia Records in the US in 2002. This is documented and illustrated in Derek RIggs' book Run For Cover.
The album cover reproduction during printing was skewed towards the yellow giving it a different look. Aces High was the second single to be released from Powerslave, peaking at number 20 in the UK.Although the B-side for this is credited as being a cover of Nektar’s King Of Twilight, it was actually a medley of that song and Crying In The Dark – another Nektar track. Powerslave Lyrics: Into the Abyss I'll fall, the eye of Horus / Into the eyes of the night, watching me go / Green is the cat's eye that glows / In this Temple / Enter the risen Osiris, risen again

Powerslave is the fifth studio album by the English heavy metal band Iron Maiden, released on 3 September 1984 on EMI in Europe and its sister label Capitol Records in North America. The same color skewing occurred on The Number of The Beast where black skies on the original oil painting was reproduced as blue. It was creativity to the nth degree, man! Probably Derek used it as an inspiration (as it obviously is on the E, L & P cover). The so-called “White Album” was innovative; the first LP cover to come out with no picture!
The Powerslave cover was made by master painter Derek Riggs, who doesn't need to be introduced any further here.
