English heavy metal marvels Iron Maiden launched their highly anticipated Legacy of the Beast tour this past weekend in Zagreb, Croatia, supporting the group’s latest album, Senjutsu (which landed the band its highest-ever spot on the Billboard 200 chart).

The thunderous and relentlessly epic record was originally released in September as Iron Maiden’s first as a collective since 2015. The show in Zagreb marked Iron Maiden’s first public live gig since 2019, predating the pandemic, so it came with heightened excitement from the group’s legions of adoring fans.

It also marked the debut of “Samurai Eddie,” a stylized version of Maiden’s classic ‘Eddie’ mascot, which roamed the stage with menacing glares and a formidable sword:
