Janne Kallio: Rautaneito - Ilmestykset 1980-85
This book is telling meaning and story behind every song from album "Iron Maiden" to "Powerslave". It's not written by band itself but a Finnish fan - Janne Kallio. It's just a must-buy for every Maiden fan from Finland. Or anyone who knows Finnish language.

Rautaneito - Ilmestykset 1980-85 Reviewed by: zannibal, on january 16, 2012

Richness of Content: "Rautaneito" is a Finnish translation for Iron Maiden. And "Ilmestykset" is translation for "Revelations". So basically instead of telling the history of Iron Maiden for millionth time, this book is telling meaning and story behind every song from album "Iron Maiden" to "Powerslave". It's not written by band itself but a Finnish fan - Janne Kallio. It has tons of information, and it makes Iron Maiden even better. For example, after reading the meaning of "Still Life" I started to like the song even more. Also, it has really long historic part about World War 2 during Aces High part. It also tells facts about band, like their setlists during Beast On The Road tour, or Bruce Dickinson's depression during World Slavery Tour. It's definitely 10 scores for content. // 10

Style: I like the writing style. It's not too boring. I read books really rarely, but this one was so well written that I readed in no-time. Even though this is fan-made, the writer is actually professional writer. There may be some mistakes with spelling at some parts because they didn't have enough money to "real" publisher. It was published by a private person - the admin of Rautaneito forums. // 9

Overall Impression: It's just a must-buy for every Maiden fan from Finland. Or anyone who knows Finnish language. Of course you can try to learn Finnish with Iron Maiden. It works perfectly in every way. The cover is not a boring like they usually are, it's a god damn flying Eddie. Also there are a few paintings in the book. All made just for this book. This book has just so much information about the band that even if you know something already you will be learning something new. // 10
