Bruce Dickinson's Brand New Solo Album 'The Mandrake Project' Out NowBruce Dickinson has released his brand-new album, The Mandrake Project. Featuring the singles ‘Afterglow of Ragnarok’ and ‘Rain On The Graves’ the ten-track collection is already receiving huge global acclaim, with rave reviews running around the world.

Sonically heavy and rich in musical textures, the album sees Bruce bring to life a musical vision long-in-the-making. Created with co-writer and producer Roy Z, they have crafted one of the defining rock albums of 2024.

Supporting the release of the album in Europe Bruce is under-taking an instore signing run which started with a midnight opening in Wales on this St David’s Day at HMV Cardiff. He will also be appearing at HMV London this evening, with further events taking place over the next two days in Birmingham, Sheffield and Manchester.

Last weekend he attended pre-listening events & a pre-order signing session in two major Swedish cities and will return to mainland Europe for signings in France and Germany to complete the release week.


-- "…this vibrant, imaginative album is a huge statement by an artist who is fully living up to his status as heavy metal legend." – Decibel
-- “On The Mandrake Project, Dickinson's creativity feels as inexhaustible as his onstage energy.”- Loudwire
-- “… the LP often captures the magic of his greatest works – solo, with Iron Maiden, or otherwise – ensuring that his reign is far from over“- Metal Injection
-- “Bruce excelled in his vision and his vocal performance is off the charts. It is oozing with passion, creativity, and serves as another example why he is one of the best of all-time.” - Brave Words (9.0)
-- “The wildly ambitious, mostly hard rock but genre-blurring The Mandrake Project” - The Sun (4/5)
-- “The Mandrake Project demands and rewards total absorption into its kaleidoscopic sound picture… Bruce’s extraordinary voice… has rarely sounded more assertive, upfront and in your face, urging his vocals to new levels of expressive emotion and dramatic control” - Metal Hammer (9/10)
-- “His most ambitious and best solo work to date… He sounds great, his voice properly doing the rounds through the narrative, as the beefy riffs – much more so than in Maiden – and gritty production add a layer of their own” - Kerrang (4/5)
-- “Spectacular solo outing… surely his most innovative and creative yet. Heavy but easily accessible” - Record Collector (4/5)
-- “Simply brilliant… we are already looking at one of rock and metal’s defining genre-crossing albums of 2024” - Powerplay (10/10)
-- “Its themes are plainly evident in the earworm metal of ‘Many Doors To Hell’ and gothic menace of ‘Fingers In The Wounds’, although more subdued (but equally sombre) hues inform the portentous, piano-led power ballad ‘Shadow Of The Gods’” – Uncut

Bruce Dickinson and his phenomenal band will bring the music of The Mandrake Project to life with a major headline tour this spring and summer. The live band now features two guitarists – Philip Naslund & Chris Declercq – alongside drummer Dave Moreno, bass-player Tanya O’Callaghan and keyboard maestro Mistheria.

Support in the UK, Paris & Tilburg comes from New Zealand up & coming rockers, Black Smoke Trigger.

The Mandrake Project is Dickinson’s seventh solo album. It is released via BMG worldwide on multiple formats.
