Iron Maiden – Powerslave

The artwork seems to be completely unrelated to the lyrics and music.
The title track “Powerslave” is told from the point of view of an Egyptian Pharaoh, the lyrics explicitly referencing ancient Egypt. There’s also a cool Egyptian guitar riff. And now you know.
Thank you rkachowski, now I know. While listening the album by bits and pieces I heard about napalm, guns, swords, mariners and valleys but somehow completely overheard the title track.
