Iron Maiden reissuing groundbreaking early recordings on 180-gram vinyl

Cut from the original analog master tapes

Faithfully reproduced artwork

Iron Maiden is following up the 2012-13 vinyl picture disc reissues of their groundbreaking first eight records, which spanned the 1980s, with brand new pressings of the albums on heavyweight 180-gram black vinyl. The albums are cut from the original analog master tapes and packaged in identical artwork to the initial 1980's releases. The records are being released chronologically across a two month period starting October 2014 with the first three albums Iron Maiden, Killers and The Number Of The Beast.

This is the album that started it all. Iron Maiden's fantastic self-titled debut. It's not exactly the Maiden we all know and love today, but it's still a solid LP, one of the best ever. Paul DiAnno has a much different vocal delivery than Bruce Dickinson, more rough and aggressive, but it still works. And, he's also an excellent singer, as you will see on such tracks as "Remember Tomorrow" and the surprisingly soft "Strange World" (one of the few Maiden songs that never gets heavy). The musicianship is excellent here.

The release of these high quality, black vinyl records offers optimum choice to fans who would like to own a piece of Iron Maiden's authentic 1980's vinyl sound, or for those simply wanting to rediscover this much loved, iconic format. Coupled with the end of the Maiden England World Tour which began in North America in 2012 and finished in July 2014 at Knebworth Park's Sonisphere Festival, this now completes Maiden's 1980's touring and catalogue reissues cycle, so the band is free to focus on their dynamic future plans.
