5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Metal, 12 May 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Number Of The Beast (Audio CD)
THE classic metal album, if this album wasn't released, there would be no Metallica, no Slayer, no Korn, Deftones, Slipknot, need I go on? This was Bruce Dickinsons first and best album with the band. It has it's share of classic heavy metal characteristics, duelling lead guitars, soaring vocals, mock satanic lyrics, ah... I can feel the mullet growing as I speak. The album is practically perfect, "Gangland" and "Invaders" are maybe slightly iffy but good nevertheless. The real words must go out to the classics though; "Number of the Beast", "Run to the Hills", "Hallowed be They Name" and "The Prisoner". "Number of the Beast" is full of mock satanic lyrics, "Run to the Hills" chronicles the plight of the North American Indians, "Hallowed be thy Name" is the harrowing story of a man on death row and "The Prisoner" is, well about a prisoner. All of these are Bona Fide classics of the heavy metal genre. Bruce Dickinson's voice is perfectly suited to the job and you must wonder where Maiden would be if they had never recruited him. If you have any taste in metal whatsoever, you should be the proud owner of this colossus, although only eight tracks long, it more than satisfies.
