Since the "Best Of The Beast" vinyl album includes many pictures of the band as Iron maiden chronicled their career with this 4-LP collector's set. This awesome set comes with a large 60 page full colored hardback book filled with many more pictures and information on the band. Each LP is housed in special sleeve inserts which and the LP cover has an extremely glossy cover itself. The entire set of LPs and book are all inserted in a special glossy thick cardboard holder making all this one album that all Iron Maiden fans must have. Since "Best Of The Beast" was a limited production, it is very hard to come across. Good Luck in your search, but I have included a special 8-page "Best Of The Beast" website which includes many photos, animated Eddie images and all the sleeve designs, LP covers and record images.

Welcome and Thank You for visiting my "Iron Maiden MIDI Homepage". My love for heavy metal started in my college days at Scranton in the mid-80s. Since the University of Scranton was a Jesuit school, there were many preppies and Catholic school graduates who attended the university. I graduated in 1983 from Harry S Truman (baddest public school in Bucks County), I was not used to the music they liked; pop, dance,ect. I always listened to Led Zep, Pink Floyd, Yes, Van Halen and the other Rock 'N Roll music. Then bands like Black Sabbath, Judas Priest and AC/DC hit the music world and Heavy Metal was born. I started to really enjoy this type of Rock since preppies didn't like it. I was always kind of different and this was my way to go against the norm at college. I bought my first Iron Maiden record, "The Number Of The Beast" and I was hooked. I compare them to Yes in the way the songs are written. Though Iron Maiden talks more about destruction and death whereas Yes is about futuristic nature, I felt a bond to really like the music. Iron Maiden is not like any other Heavy Metal bands since their music talks about death, witches and Satan. But that is where it ends. They are only stories handed down over the many centuries or stories from the Holy Bible. Most songs from Iron Maiden are also over 4 minutes in length and some are even as long as 15 minutes. Most of the songs are also longer than the usual pop heavy metal sounds of Motley Crew, Ratt, Quiet Riot, and Cinderella.

Rock On Forever Iron Maiden And Up The Irons!
