"To Tame a Land" is a song by Iron Maiden. It was released as the final track on the band's fourth studio album, Piece of Mind (1983).


Written by bassist and founder-member Steve Harris, the song relays the story of Paul Atreides, Paul Muad'Dib, from the book Dune by Frank Herbert. However, when the band asked Herbert for permission to name the song “Dune,” Herbert declined with a terse and combative statement.
