IRON MAIDEN Unveil Another ‘Belshazzar’s Feast’ Video Teaser

What is 'Belshazzar's Feast'?

IRON MAIDEN have released another video teaser inviting fans to “Belshazzar’s Feast”.

“Belshazzar’s Feast” is the biblical story of the “writing on the wall”, and IRON MAIDEN have their masses of fans speculating that the band will be officially announcing their 17th studio album.

The 14-second video message posted to IRON MAIDEN’s social media earlier today can be seen below.

The latest clip comes less than a week after IRON MAIDEN posted a video message from vocalist Bruce Dickinson inviting fans to the July 15 Belshazzar’s Feast event.

Late last month, Dickinson wore the shirt in a TV interview with Sky News. During the conversation, he teased IRON MAIDEN’s future plans, saying, “I can’t tell you what it is, but it’s right in front of you.”

With speculation that the new album would be named ‘Writing On The Wall’, a number of recent IRON MAIDEN-related graphics have featured the slogan “W.O.T.W.”

In addition, a “Belshazzar’s Feast” poster was spotted at the Download Pilot festival last month bearing the date “15/07” and the letters “IMXVII,” which works out to be IRON MAIDEN and the number 17 in Roman numerals.
