I can see the similarities between the two covers, but as has been mentioned before, they both rely heavily on existing Egyptian Architechture. Its not that strange that the openings of the temples are in the center of the picture in both covers, or that there is a large amount of symmetry. Quite a lot of the covers' similarities are coincidence; if the sun were to shine on a part of the pyramid, it would be the top, naturally. Pity Riggsy's fallen out with Maiden, I think that might be Bruce's arrogance (I'm liking Bruce less and Steve more as each day passes), we could do with a cool Powerslave/SiT/SSoaSS/BNW artwork for the new album. If not, Melvyn'll have to do, he's a competent artist too.
