    Total big hairy balls metal all the way!:kickass: Can you remember playing it for the first time? All I'd heard from it was RTTH back then so when that needle hit the vinyl for the first time and Invaders filled my room (and the rest o the hoose, and next door to be honest:kickass: ) I thought yeeeeefeckin ha and proceeded to destroy several million brain cells in one evening:headbang:

    Everysongs a winner, the cover is legendary.:worship:

    Number of the Beast and Piece of Mind are both on my all-time Top 10 metal albums. In a word... masterpiece!

    First Maiden album I ever heard ! And had me hooked straight away.

    It still make's me smile when I saw Machine Head a few years and they started up Number of the Beast as an encore and all these kids just stood there going who the? and what the ? Whilst me and my mate went APESHIT ! :headbang:

    I was at the Ten Ton Hammer gig at the Garage in Islington which was indeed all covers, but no they always play some covers as Machine Head, namely some Maiden and always guaranteed WALK Pantera ! AWESOME :kickass:

    P.S. I would sell me mum to see a DVD of the Ten Ton Hammer show from Islington

    Never really been a Maiden fan. Still, Number of the Beast is a classic heavy metal album. Run to the Hills, Number of the Beast, Hallowed Be Thy Name are great songs. Don't care about the rest of the songs though. Children of the Damned is okay as well though.. but invader, the prisoner, 22 acacia avenue, gangland... didn't really like them. Maybe I would just have to listen to them more. Classic album anyway. :headbang:
