Written by Smith / Dickinson

Across a painted desert lies a train of vagabonds
All that’s left of what we were it’s what we have become
Once our empires glorious but now the empire’s gone
The dead gave us the time to live and now our time is done

Now we are victorious we’ve become our slaves
A land of hope and glory building graveyards for the brave

Have you seen the writing on the wall
Have you seen that writing
Can you see the riders on the storm
Can you see them riding ~ can you see them riding

Holding on to jury is that all we ever know
Ignorance our judge and jury all we’ve got to show
From Hollywood to Babylon ~ holy war to kingdom come
On a trail of dust and ashes ~ when the burning sky is done
A tide of change is coming and that is what you fear
The earthquake is a coming but you don’t want to hear
You’re just too blind to see

Have you seen the writing on the wall
Have you seen that writing
Can you see the riders on the storm
Can you see them riding
Can you see them riding. . . Riding next to you


  • Up the Irons! a new Maiden Album and tour announced, best news ever! this is sick! great track. Maiden follower since 84!

  • Epic as hell when eddie reveals himself, unleashes the four horsemen and then Adrian slays us all with that filthy guitar solo. \m/ up the irons bring me senjutsu!!!!

  • That Is excellent song writing. Classy stuff by one of the greatest bands ever.

  • is it me who remembered the story of eva and adão?

  • I don't have a particular favorite album but plenty of artwork...if I have to pick anything as one ... Seventh son ..

  • there's a special place in the universe where all Maiden fans meet by heart..i hope these fuckers know how much they've affected and helped people through time btw this song is a fucking classic already

  • Eddie as Samurai Zombie is kick ass !!

  • The beginning riff sounds like "village on the sand", of blackmore's night!!!

  • Ι like the Eddies that take revenge for all the poor people of.the planet......

  • Вынос мозга. Сука, клёво!

  • Esse vídeo mostra um futuro não distante. Futuro do apocalipse.

  • Muito foda. Iron Maiden sempre impressionando.

  • An epic song from a legend band...

  • Четыре всадника Апокалипсиса, сделают обнуление всей псевдо цивилизации на этой грешной земле. ( И деньги 💰 всей земли вам не помогут, черви навозные.)

  • Altas referências ...

  • this is why i love iron maiden they don’t have to tune down to D or C this song 🎶 is in standard tuning and sounds awesome 🤘🏻i already leaned this song just by playing along with it see kids you don’t need to play in drop F or whatever to play metal

  • Viciante!!! Esse som é muito foda. Quem diz que o Rock morreu só pode estar louco!

  • how maiden keep thumpung out fantastic songs after so long... its mind boggling. So many bands live on past success ans dont release new stuff. Damn I love em

  • Surprised? No. Masterpiece is something completely normal for Iron Maiden. They don't know any different way.

  • Eddie seria Jesus Cristo?

  • Wow! This is amazing! The riders are already here! Let's clean this mess up! 🤘

  • Lembra muito a animação Heavy Metal. Se tivesse top 10 na MTV, estaria no topo.

  • Este video es mucha cosa. Me dejo impresionado los escuchare muchas veces mas

  • Always same maiden

  • O próprio satanás avisando o mundo o que ele vai fazer e todos levando isso como uma obra legal e bem feito no sentido de animação. Por nao conhecerem o conteudo da bíblia sagrada vcs nao enchergam o que realmente é esse conteudo desse vídeo. Isso vai acontecer de verdade e ja esta acontecendo . os que aceitarem esse sistema sofreram graves consequências do Deus ALTICÍMO. Os que não aceitarem essa marca que enganará muitos com uma suposta vida boa pra sempre serão salvos por Jesus e viveram eternamente em sei reinado. Esse satanás ja esta condenado e quer arrastar muitos com ele entao nao caia nessa , acordem pessoal , buquem a palavra de Deus o tempo esta acabando.

  • Simplesmente brutal!

  • Iron Murmaider! Yeah! Rock!

  • Live the irons

  • Iron maiden per sempre!!!

  • Another brilliant song from the mighty Iron maiden up the irons Lee Hambleton from Sheffield

  • The structure of the arena at 2:00 reminded me a lot of the Yggdrasil temple in Assasin's Creed Valhalla

  • Hell yeah!!!!

  • I love the heavy metal esque (as in the classic 80's movie) video though.

  • La Profecía Maiden de lo que pasa en el mundo actual

  • WOW! Finally a new oldschool Maiden song!

  • Simplesmente Fantástico!

  • vocal by Bruce I think it's intentional Bruce has a tendency to shift himself into different modes like any good vocalist you don't want to be the same all the time granted what Bruce does have under your belt is not able to be reproduced by anyone other than him when it comes to Iron Maiden Bruce is the most recognized vocalist of all time. Wales you do get older and wind is getting harder to find sitting at home eating bonbons and ramen noodles for a year-and-a-half eventually that's going to kick your ass I know speaking for a vocalist you have to write to your capabilities so you don't have to struggle performing this song 95024325 times. And Bruce stays in pretty good shape he is rather active and the main thing is they do it because they don't know how to stop the music continues to come I highly doubt they're doing it for any other purpose other than passion they really enjoy the fans this has been an entire life long career ..just to have a release today is good enough for me. Some other stuff they write I might like some of the stuff I might not they're not writing to please me directly that's the name of the game you can't keep everybody happy on every song why would you ..different collaborations . it's made for a different ear in targeting strategies whether or not Steve sees it that way is another story but that's kind of how I see it.. it's all in the ear of the beholder and basically it generally is a matter of life and death. it's what keeps them driven . They've been doing it for so long keeps the blood flowing . Bruce has absolutely nothing to prove in his ability Diamond Dave had nothing to proven his ability very few vocalists out there could have ever done what Bruce has accomplished he is a gifted Soul just like everybody else there. . That's just my opinion isn't it a little late to try to criticize now I'm not as old as any of the members in Maiden you know what I feel like Eddie looks God bless the children's all I can say any release from Iron Maiden in my opinion is a true bonus on top of everything we've already been given and learned and seen the last thing I want to do is have one of the members feel that they're not haven't we all been beat up enough already can't we just play isn't that what it's all about is enjoying what we have I mean I don't recall ever seeing a member of Maiden trying to borrow $20 bucks from anyone. Last I heard they're selling out about 30,000 seats in 10 minutes. Such a shame . could have sold 20.000 more who knew? There isn't very many people like the members of Maiden anymore with everything that's going on in the music industry these days these people are their Own Worst Enemy and some of these and I'm not going to name any names have deliberately destroyed the music industry in the state's. And I hope you're paying attention to this comment because there is something that they can do that really needs to be done but highly doubtful anybody will bother music industry really isn't their issue they have their own..

  • Es como una cachetada a Metallica (así lo imaginé yo)

  • the best band in the world, a kiss from Colombia 🇨🇴🍷🥰

  • Fucking awesome!

  • It's been about forty years since I first heard Wrathchild. Although I dug the music on the first two albums it wasn't until I heard the "Number of the Beast" album that I became a true Iron Maiden fan. It was a very fortunate day for all involved when Iron Maiden got a "Human Air Raid Siren" to front the band!!! I love this fuckin' song..."UP THE IRONS"!!!

  • ✌✌✌✌✌

  • why are they doin the stupid "2 cd album" again. hate that crap....albums on for like 82mins...surely they could of took 2 mins off and put it all on one album. 2cd albums suck, like the metallica one...u dont play it as a whole that one cd...then end up leavin the other....dumbest idea ever.

  • My favorite band of all time😎

  • Best metal band ever

  • Jeova e maior !!! Jrsus cristo

  • Ennio Morricone?

  • Como os BR gostam do Irom isso é muito bom! E essa banda é sensacional!

  • Viva maiden

  • Through time tunnel back to Maiden's Golden Years!

  • I am 45 year old man whith lovely wife and 3 beautiful kids but I must confes: EDDIE I LOVE YOU!!!!!

  • Música do carai meu velho

  • Sooo fucking boss

  • Buenísima!!! Saludos desde Perú 🇵🇪

  • I enjoy this song and Dickenson's voice is as amazing as always, but is this Maiden's version of St. Anger? Certainly feels that way, on my first listen. I welcome being wrong.

  • Wh/te shaming and painting us as the bad guys. I'm disappointed Iron Maiden.

  • Free speech is a joke. Freedom is a lie. Free Will does not exist.

  • Yup. Keep taking the truth down NOwine.... typical. Doesn't fit their narrative.

  • Anche gli Iron hanno capito che sta per tornare il messiah a spaccare il culo a quest’umanitá degenerata

  • Stuck in this music, bruh, its getting better when you repeat this song again and again

  • O fim do clipe é uma referência a Adão e Eva

  • \m/!

  • Sou fã do Iron Maiden desde 1983 quando um amigo trouxe do EUA os lps Iron Maiden Killers e The number of the beast , imagina os 3 ao mesmo tempo !!!! Até hoje e sempre , UP the Irons !!!!!

  • 2021, let's see how tomany people are listening to this masterpiece of the Iron Maiden

  • UP the Irons

  • Pancada

  • The writing on the wall grate video!

  • The writing on the wall We’re all doomed s covid19 need a miracle God gives us strength

  • Bloody oath

  • There are three separate guitar lines, played in different time, throughout the majority of this song, and it's still a cohesive, amazing composition. Few bands have the talent (let alone the three guitarists) to pull something like that off.
