Iron Maiden Video Director Explains Speed Of Light Video Game Theme

(Classic Rock) Iron Maiden video director Llexi Leon said he put himself under pressure to make the band's Speed Of Light video the best work of his career. The track was released last week - the first material lifted from Maiden's 16th album The Book Of Souls, which is launched on September 4.

Leon, the creative director at Phantom management, tells Metal Hammer: "It seemed a perfect fit - 40 years of metal explored alongside four decades of video games.

"I pitched this idea to Rod Smallwood and the guys in the band. They loved the concept and asked if I could pull it off. I figured it was Iron Maiden so I had to pull it off - and it had to be the best thing I've ever done."

He continues: "The video is littered with nods to Iron Maiden artwork - whether it's the poses of the characters at certain key moments, or imagery woven into the background art. There's a lot to look out for in the video." Watch the video here.
