The Legacy of the Beast… NOT: Metal titans Iron Maiden’s mobile game, The Legacy of the Beast, recently saw an in-game tie-on with thrash pioneer Anthrax, as the latter’s Not Man fought alongside Maiden’s Eddie.

“I was familiar with the game prior to the collaboration, mainly because I follow Maiden on their social media, so I’ve seen a lot of posts about it,” says Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian, “I’ve even checked it out because I love the artwork and things like that. I’m not a gamer, but yes, I definitely was familiar with Legacy of the Beast.”

The Not Man looks great in this environment – he’s maybe less “monstrous” than Eddie, or the Motorhead and Megadeth mascots, but it works.
