It is being speculated by fans that Iron Maiden is about to announce its new, 17th studio album, since the legendary band is dropping some teasers for the “Belshazzar’s Feast”.

The story of the “Belshazzar’s Feast” can be read in the book of Daniel, and the idiomatic expression “The Writing on the Wall” is based on this story. So it is said that the new Iron Maiden album (six years after 2015’s “The Book of Souls”) will be titled “Writing On The Wall”.

But let see what the band has revealed until now. Firstly, Iron Maiden posted a video message from singer Bruce Dickinson teasing the July 15 Belshazzar’s Feast event. Then, the famous English band dropped another video teaser inviting their fans to the “Belshazzar’s Feast”. And don’t forget that last month, Dickinson sported a “Belshazzar’s Feast” shirt in a TV interview with Sky News. During the conversation, he teased Maiden’s future plans, saying, “I can’t tell you what it is, but it’s right in front of you”. 

A number of other recent Maiden-related graphics have featured the slogan “WOTW”. 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 fans believe are a reference to Iron Maiden and 17 in Roman numerals.
