Number of the Beast is the quintessential Iron Maiden. Released in 1982, this was the first of their albums to feature on vocals the man who would become their voice, and one of the signature voices of metal, Bruce Dickinson, replacing Paul Di’Anno. Number of the Beast was also Iron Maiden’s last album to feature drummer Clive Burr, who was replaced by Nicko McBrain on their next studio release, Piece of Mind. So here you have the man who would become the best singer of the band, with their original drummer, along with the equally superb Steve Harris, Adrian Smith and Dave Murray. And this is the only album to feature all of their talents combined. Also, this digitally remastered version of it brings new life to the already great masterpiece that was the original. Not to mention Number of the Beast also features a couple of Iron Maiden’s biggest hits ever, Hallowed Be Thy Name and the title track, Number of the Beast. There’s no denying it, this album is to Iron Maiden what Back in Black was to AC/DC, what Blizzard of Ozz was to Ozzy Osbourne, etc. I VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND this album to any fan of classic, old school hard rock/metal, for even the most jaded classic metal fan will find something fresh to love about this album.
