UK’s METAL HAMMER magazine is releasing it’s first ever HD3D magazine cover to celebrate the release of IRON MAIDEN’s upcoming studio album “The Final Frontier.” This would be the British legends’ fifteenth studio album that has a release date of August 16th worldwide except in North America, where the album releases on August 17th. The possibility of “The Final Frontier” being the last album by IRON MAIDEN has resulted in the album release being considered to be one of the most important events in heavy metal history.

The September issue of the magazine that features a space-bound Eddie depicted in blood spattered 3D goes on sale Wednesday, 28th July. The issue also contains a collectable “The Final Frontier” mouse mat. Contrary to expectations, Metal Hammer magazine is now available in India as well, although with a massive price tag of 699 bucks! The September issue, imported from the UK will hit Indian newsstands by September 10th. A must for every Maiden fanatic!
