Iron Maiden are a British heavy metal band, formed in 1975 by bassist and only original member Steve Harris, and since 1999, also consists of vocalist Bruce Dickinson, guitarists Dave Murray, Adrian Smith and Janick Gers, and drummer Nicko McBrain. The band have released fifteen studio albums: Iron Maiden (1980), Killers (1981), The Number of the Beast (1982), Piece of Mind (1983), Powerslave (1984), Somewhere in Time (1986), Seventh Son of a Seventh Son (1988), No Prayer for the Dying (1990), Fear of the Dark (1992), The X Factor (1995), Virtual XI (1998), Brave New World (2000), Dance of Death (2003), A Matter of Life and Death (2006), and The Final Frontier (2010), all of which have been released through EMI. As one of the most commercially successful heavy metal bands of all time, Iron Maiden have sold between 80 and 100 million records worldwide.[1][2][3]

In 1994, one of their singles, "Fear of the Dark", received a Grammy nomination for Best Metal Performance. Seven years later, the band were nominated again in that category, with the song "The Wicker Man".[4] In 2011, Iron Maiden won the award with "El Dorado".[5] In 2002, they won the Ivor Novello Award for international achievement.[6] Iron Maiden received a nomination from the Kerrang! Awards in the "Best Live Act" category in 2003, and were inducted into the Kerrang! Hall of Fame two years later.[7] At the 2006 Metal Storm Awards, A Matter of Life and Death was named the best heavy metal album of the year.[8] Iron Maiden have also received eight awards from thirteen nominations at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards. Their mascot Eddie, who has previously been used by US critics to argue that Iron Maiden are Satanists,[9] received a Golden Gods nomination in 2006, losing to singer Cristina Scabbia;[10] but was awarded in 2008.[11] Later in 2008, Iron Maiden were nominated in the Best Live Return category at the Vodafone Live Music Awards, to which the band disagreed with their nomination and asked to be withdrawn, stating that they were "not quite sure where we are returning from."[12] They were replaced by the band James.[12] The band were named "Best British Live Act" at the 2009 BRIT Awards, winning via a public poll.[13] They were not able to attend the ceremony, ironically due to touring duties, instead delivering an acceptance message by video link-up.[14] Their film Flight 666 won, in the category "24 Beats Per Second", at the SXSW film Festival, held in Austin, Texas, in March 2009.[15] Overall, Iron Maiden have received twenty-three awards from thirty-three nominations.
