2 Minutes to Midnight: An Iron Maiden Day-by-Day offers a fresh form of band biography, examining myriad events in Iron Maiden's history in a detailed timeline form. The book springs to life with illustrative quotations, historical notations that put the band in the wider context of the rock world, and then, as icing on the cake, an explosion of color via live photography and memorabilia shots. Great Britain's Iron Maiden has enjoyed over 40 years of multiplatinum success the world over as pretty much the biggest, most famous heavy metal band in history, save perhaps Metallica. The band continue to tour exhaustively, a happenstance that surely will help keep this book front-racked in the minds of metalheads everywhere. A book on Maiden has been the #1 request that Martin Popoff's fan base has put upon the author for the past ten years and now he's delivered.
