Among the most popular Vans band collaborations to date, Vans and Iron Maiden have previously created four other projects saluting other essential Maiden albums: Killers (2007), Piece of Mind (2007), Powerslave (2008) and Trooper (2008).
The third studio album from Iron Maiden, The Number of the Beast was a seminal album for heavy metal and a pivotal point for the band, becoming their first record to reach the number one spot on the UK albums charts and securing them a platinum record in the U.S. The album produced such hits as “Run to the Hills” and “The Number of the Beast.”
This album was also the centre of controversy, particularly in the United States, due to the lyrics of the title track and the cover art depicting Eddie controlling Satan like a puppet, while Satan is also controlling a smaller Eddie. Smallwood explains that the concept was to ask "who's the really evil one here? Who's manipulating who?" According to Riggs this was inspired by a Doctor Strange comic book "which had some big villain with Doctor Strange dangling on some strings like a puppet, it was something I read as a child back in the 1960s I think", while the images of hell were "taken from my knowledge of medieval European Christian art which was full of such scenes."
