Piece of Mind is the fourth studio album by British heavy metal band Iron Maiden. It was originally released in 1983 (see 1983 in music) on EMI, and on Capitol in the US; it was reissued later on Sanctuary/Columbia Records. It was the first album to feature drummer Nicko McBrain, who had recently left the Paris-based band Trust.
“The Trooper” remains as one of the most popular songs in the band’s history, and has been included in the set list of all of the band’s concert tours since the album’s release. During the Blaze Bayley era, it was used as the closing song for the lineup’s tours.
Two songs were covered for the 2008 tribute album Maiden Heaven: A Tribute to Iron Maiden; they were “The Trooper” and “To Tame a Land”.
Lyrically, the album reflected the group’s interest in books and film. For example, “To Tame a Land” is based on Frank Herbert’s novel Dune. “The Trooper” is inspired by Tennyson’s Charge of the Light Brigade. “Still Life” is inspired by fantasy/horror writer Clark Ashton Smith’s pre-World War II short story Genius Loci. Other inspirations include “Where Eagles Dare”, a film, and a novel by Alistair MacLean; “Quest for Fire”, based on the film by Jean-Jacques Annaud; the writer G. K. Chesterton who is quoted at the beginning of “Revelations”. More exotic influences include Greek mythology, albeit slightly altered for “Flight of Icarus”, and samurai legend Miyamoto Musashi (“Sun and Steel”). Aleister Crowley influenced a good piece of the remaining lyrics of “Revelations,” which was written by Dickinson.
