A new book, 'Iron Maiden: The Ultimate Unauthorized History of the Beast,' offers an in-depth look at the iconic metal act, and we're teaming up with Ultimate Classic Rock and Voyageur Press to give away a copy of the book.

This beast of a book goes into elaborate detail into the story of Iron Maiden, covering the band's history from their original formation in 1975 all the way to their 2010 masterpiece, 'The Final Frontier.' Fans can expect tons of art, tales and lots of quotes from Maiden band members about the intricate details of their career.

"I think you find that wherever the media hasn't had much of a chance to get its teeth in, people tend to take to hard rock naturally," said frontman Bruce Dickinson in a 1985 interview. "It's loud, raucous, entertaining, covers a variety of interesting topics and facets of life, and therefore it's extremely popular … despite the efforts of the media to kill it off." This is only one of the many quotes fans will be able to discover in the new book.
