Review by Paul Monkhouse for MPM

If excitement wasn’t already high enough yet for his forthcoming solo album ‘The Mandrake Project’, this new single from Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson turns the heat up to boiling point.

Wrapped in a Gothic coat of dark wonders, ‘Rain on the Graves’ is a Hammer House of Horrors ride full of high drama, delicious riffs and Grand Guignol touches that will have you shuddering with pleasure.

A haunting blend of elements from Ghost, Judas Priest and Deep Purple, all given the polymathic singer’s own spin, this rocks hard and takes some delightfully unexpected twists and turns along the way.

Accompanied by a suitably dark and campy video that’s an entertaining mini movie in itself that shows off the line-up for his stellar live band, this is high quality stuff and the singer obviously had a ball making it.

Ambitious, unsettling and ultimately glorious, ‘Rain on the Graves’ is another compelling chapter in the story of one of the greatest figures in rock. Absolutely thrilling.
