Nashville Predators backup goalie Chris Mason has
unveiled a new Iron Maiden inspired mask for the 2012-2013 NHL
Mason's move from the Winnipeg Jets to the Nashville
franchise last weekend meant new gear was in order, so the goalie
hooked up with Steve Nash of EyeCandyAir.
InGoalMag reports the mask is inspired by
the Egyptian-themed cover of the Iron Maiden's 1984
In fact, the Eddie in question is from the Egyptian-themed
cover of the band's Powerslave album, which also produced the
single Aces High and corresponding Eddie included on last year's
mask. It's a theme that works perfectly because the album covers
were created originally by artist Derek Riggs, who has inspired the
mask's artist, Steve Nash, throughout his own career.
Mason's name is featured in the Maiden font across the front,
which also features three Predators logos. The top of the mask has
a full facial shot of Maiden mascot Eddie in all
his "Powerslave" glory, while the backplate pays tribute
to the city of Nashville.
