Music Video of The Day: The Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg by Iron Maiden (2006, directed by ????)

When Iron Maiden released this song, they knew that their fans would try to find out who Benjamin Breeg was so they created a website about Breeg.  According to the site, Breeg was a painter of disturbing images who later found work in a cemetery and then as a paranormal investigator.  He disappeared in 1978.  Of course, this was all fictional.  There was no Benjamin Breeg.  The “Breeg” painting that was displayed on the site was actually a painting of Eddie, the band’s mascot.

The video features footage of Iron Maiden performing mixed in with a montage of early band pictures.
