Album Description:

THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST is the third studio album by British heavy metal band Iron Maiden. The album was released on March 29, 1982 through EMI. It has been cited as one of the most influential heavy metal albums of all time, and is widely acknowledged as one of the best and most iconic albums of the genre. THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST also cemented Iron Maiden as one of "the biggest metal bands on the planet". The album is also Iron Maiden's highest selling album worldwide with over 14 million sales estimated. THE BEAST ON THE ROAD was the tour supporting the album.

THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST remains one of heavy metal's all-time classics. Although the British quintet was in the midst of enjoying its first taste of global success, original singer Paul Di'Anno abruptly quit in 1981. Though stunned, the young band wisely agreed to soldier on. It also didn't hurt that the band had composed some of its best songs ever, such as the haunting title song, and its first U.K. Top-10 single, "Run to the Hills." Other highlights include the sinister "Children of the Damned," the melodic "The Prisoner," and the album-closing epic "Hallowed Be Thy Name.""The Number of the Beast", "Run to the Hills" and "Hallowed Be Thy Name" remain on the set lists of nearly all of the band's concert tours, with the latter two often used to close a show. All three songs have been released as singles in various forms.

THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST marked Bruce Dickinson's debut with the band. Nicknamed "The Air Raid Siren," Dickinson's voice was to become one of the band's most prominent signature characteristics. Since this album (and its tour, THE BEAST ON THE ROAD), "The Beast" has become something of a nickname for the band and possibly Eddie, as suggested by albums such as BEST OF THE BEAST (which featured a "best of Eddie" mural on the cover), BEAST OVER HAMMERSMITH, and the DVD VISIONS OF THE BEAST. This album is the only one to feature songwriting by drummer Clive Burr. This is one of several reasons why the album was so different from previous ones other than the obvious change in lead singer. It was the first album with writing by Adrian Smith and the first to feature writing by the "new" Steve Harris (his older style had been written for different musicians, and in a different time) - the entire writing system was different. However, it is one of the few albums not to feature a Dave Murray song, and the first album not to feature an instrumental.
