PowerSlave, known as Exhumed in Europe, is a first-person shooter developed by Lobotomy Software and published by Playmates Interactive. It was released in North America, Europe and Japan, for the Sega Saturn, PlayStation, and MS-DOS over the course of a year from late 1996 to late 1997. On May 24, 2015, Powerslave EX, an unofficial remake based on the PlayStation version, was released for free, but has since been removed for download until further notice.
It is notable for its Egyptian theme displayed in the album art, as well in the title track's musical style. It contains a musical re-telling of Samuel Taylor Coleridge's "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner", which uses pieces of the original poem as lyrics.
Powerslave is definitely a milestone in the history timeline of heavy metal. This was also my first Iron Maiden album; therefore I am extremely relieved that I chose this as my first impression instead of one of their mediocre albums. This record was released whEn the MaidEn vocalist at the time was in his best condition, because it seems that his singing and vocal range wEnt downhill right after Powerslave in records such as Somewhere in Time. if you pardon my pun. It is as pounding as any album by Priest, and the riffage on "Flash of the Blade" and "Two Minutes to Midnight" is top-notch.
Powerslave remains one of the strongest pillars of Iron Maiden mythology and metal history. In tribute we've delved through the archives and combed the trivia to give you this insight into the album that boldly used the Eye of Horus in the lyrics for the title track - not many metal bands would have been so daring! 1. The band wrote most of the songs for the Powerslave album in Jersey, which is where they also wrote the Piece Of Mind album. 2. The actual recording was done at Compass Point Studios in Nassau. It was mixed at Electric Ladyland in New York.
If The Number of the Beast was the all-time metal landmark, Powerslave is perhaps the quintessential Maiden album, capturing all the signature elements of the band's definitive era in one place.
It was re-released by Sanctuary/Columbia Records in the US in 2002. It is notable for its Ancient Egyptian theme displayed in the cover artwork, lifted from the title track, which was carried over to the album's supporting tour. Powerslave is also notable as being the band's first album to feature the same personnel as their previous studio release. This lineup would remain intact for two further studio releases. Also, it is their last album to date to feature an instrumental piece.
