180 Gram Vinyl Record
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.
When Killers debuted in 1981, it probably seemed a lot scarier than it does now. Maiden's second LP features Adrian Smith, who brought the band's dueling guitar harmonies to life. But it was the expertly arranged songwriting and fierce falsetto singing that made this album a true heavy metal classic.
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.
