IRON MAIDEN Recruits GHOST For Latest Legacy Of The Beast Mobile Game Event

Iron Maiden has teamed up with Ghost for the newest event in their Legacy Of The Beast mobile game. The event, dubbed Mascarade Diabolique, brings in vocalist Papa Emeritus IV for a conceptual mashup of Iron Maiden’s 2003 album Dance Of Death and Ghost’s 2018 track “Dance Macabre.” In the event, Eddie and Papa Emeritus IV are both invited to a mysterious party in Transylvania that of course goes awry.

“I’m happy to see that my creature is being led into [Maiden’s] world,” said Ghost mastermind Tobias Forge. “That is a cool thing, both very humbling and flattering.”

“It’s great that the LOTB mobile game continues to innovate,” added Iron Maiden manager Rod Smallwood. “The introduction of other great band images and characters is a great evolution of the initial idea we had for Eddie’s gaming universe over 5 years ago. To have our friends, Ghost brings Papa Emeritus IV into a dungeon feels like the culmination of a relationship dating back to 2013 when the band first came with us to South America…
