Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson Debuts New Solo Single “Afterglow Of Ragnarok”


0

Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson has launched his new solo track, “Afterglow Of Ragnarok“. This track is being made available both digitally and as a 7” single featuring a bonus eight-page comic book tied into his forthcoming solo album, “The Mandrake Project“.

A 2024 release is expected for that new full-length outing, with more details still to come. That record will also be accompanied by a comic book series of the same name set to be published by Z2 Comics. The album and comic flesh out a tale Dickinson came up with for the record

Dickinson said of the track and this newly released Ryan Mackfall-directed video for it:

“It was important to set the tone of the project with this track. As befitting its title, it’s a heavy song and there’s a great big riff driving it… but there’s also a real melody in the chorus that displays the light and shade that the rest of the album brings… and just wait until you see the video!”

Mackfall commented:

“Many years before I was a director, I have fond memories of various music videos that spoke to me and one of those was ‘Can I Play With Madness’ by Iron Maiden. For me it defined what a music video is. Little did I know, many years later I’d be on a call with one of the stars of that video, Mr Bruce Dickinson, discussing ideas for a music video.

Bruce has felt like a kindred spirit from that moment and it was therefore only right that we attempted to bring the story of ‘Afterglow Of Ragnarok’ to life in a live action form. Naturally the music is a big part of the engine of the music video and this track was a heavy hitter from the first play.

But beyond that I firmly believe it’s also the passion of the artist that defines the results – Bruce’s passion is unmatched. I really hope the fans find themselves taking Necropolis’ journey with the mandrake juice time and time again. This is just the start of something very special!”
