IRON MAIDEN's Video For "The Writing On The Wall" Was Inspired By RAMMSTEIN

"I said to Rod, 'Have you seen the video for 'Deutschland' by Rammstein?'"

Iron Maiden recently teamed up with ex-Pixar executives Mark Andrews and Andrew Gordon (The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Brave, etc.), and animation studio BlinkInk, for their music video for "The Writing On The Wall".

Now in an interview with Kerrang!, Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson revealed the inspiration for the video was actually Rammstein's "Deutschland" music video. Dickson said he wanted the video to have a similar impact, which of course the "Deutschland" video did (and landed the band in a little hot water).

"I said to Rod, 'Have you seen the video for 'Deutschland' by Rammstein?' That, to me, is a groundbreaking video," said Dickinson. "That's astonishing. Now, I'm not suggesting we do that, because we're not Rammstein. But think of what we could do that would have the equivalent impact for us. So, I wrote storyboard for the vid, tweaked it a little bit, and gave it a happy ending. Well, kind of a happy ending — Adam and Eve start again, but with Eddie going, 'I'll still get you in the end.'"

Iron Maiden will release their new album titled Senjutsu (loosely meaning "tactics & strategy") on September 3. The album was recorded at Guillaume Tell Studio in France with longtime producer Kevin Shirley and co-produced by bassist Steve Harris. Pre-orders are available here.
