Album Summary

Iron Maiden is the debut studio album by English heavy metal band Iron Maiden, released on 14 April 1980 by EMI Records in the UK and Harvest and Capitol Records in the US. The North American version included the song "Sanctuary", released in the UK as a non-album single. In 1998, along with the rest of the band's pre-1995 releases, Iron Maiden was remastered with "Sanctuary" added in all territories. However, 2014 vinyl reissues, 2015 digital releases and 2018 CD reissues use the original track listing across the globe. It is the band's only album to feature guitarist Dennis Stratton. Although Iron Maiden have since criticised the quality of the album's production, the release was met with critical and commercial success, peaking at number four on the UK Albums Chart and helping the band achieve prominence in mainland Europe.

Two things I must say about this one. First, it's a very good example of heavy metal from the late 70s early 80s. Second, I hate heavy metal from the late 70s early 80s.

Doubtlessly one of heavy metal's all-time most influential albums (with this release, Iron Maiden helped Judas Priest to plant the seeds for speed, thrash, and progressive metal.) It's also one of the finest debuts ever recorded by any band in the history of heavy metal. The band's vocals would become more memorable and expansive on later releases (especially after Bruce Dickinson replaced Paul Di'anno as singer in 1982), but musically, Iron Maiden were in top form on this 1980 album. There's just so much to enjoy on every one of these songs, and man, do they rock! They're fast, exciting, catchy, and super infectious. From front to back, this disc has palpable energy, irresistible hooks, impressive guitar work (including wailing solos) from Dave Murray and Dennis Stratton, prominent bass notes, and bouncy, toe-tapping drum beats galore!

Man I have been so wrong in my assumptions of Iron Maiden for way too long after listening to this album. Perhaps it’s the hideous character used in all their art work or the millions of 80’s tragic bogan followers but I had always viewed their music the same as a lot of average metal from the same era. These tracks are so much more defined and ‘musical’ than expected. The fact I can also hear where early Metallica gained their inspiration also gives this album a huge amount of credit and respect. Never judge a book by it’s horrible cover art. 4 Stars!

Prowler is a great opening track and made me immediately rethink Iron Maiden. The drums on Running Free are gloooorious; the sheer rock and roll release that is Phantom of the Opera defines classic rock. The whole album does, if I could bottle classic rock for someone this is it. I'm not a huge Iron Maiden fan but the musicality and muscularity of this album is nothing if not hugely impressive.

Can we just look at the cover and make comments on that? I don't think I've ever heard this entire album. Through a long backward lens it sounds like an amalgam of Motorhead (although less badass), Deep Purple (although less talented), and Status Quo. Yes, Status Quo: There are in fact little bits of high-energy boogie in here. Can't help but feel that with the timing, Rob Reiner had to have been aware of Iron Maiden when he made "This Is Spinal Tap" over the next couple of years. (Released in '84) Not that the film was all about just I.M., but the genre was definitely hitting its fix-your-hair-and-crank-everything-to-11 stride after a slow build all during the 70s. YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

Когда меня просили назвать 5 альбомов, чтобы въехать в митол, я среди прочих называл этот. Да и ща бы назвал, наверное. Даже несмотря на осознание ностальгии. Стив Харрис вроде говорил, что мол первый альбом ты пишешь всю жизнь, а второй - когда скажет лейбл. Если бы у Iron Maiden вышел только этот альбом, его уже можно было бы считать нехуёвым делом жизни, в самто деле. Prowler врывается, своей энергией будто открывая новую эпоху роцка и митола, 80-е. Объединяя в себе черты пунка и существовавшего хард-роцка с митолом прокладывает путь всей последующей митольной годноте, спид-митолу, трэш-митолу и иже с ними. Sanctuary звучит немного инородно, слишком прямолинейно, роцк-н-ролльно шоль, митолу не хватат. Не особо мудрено, что трек был присобачен к альбому лишь опосля, а отродясь являлся синглом. Remember Tomorrow разъёбывает просто своей прогрессивной структурой, разнообразными и гармонично сплетёнными партиями и переходами. Хуки просто за яйца цепляют. Running Free звучит как марш, как гимн. Лаконичный и красивый. Даже фрагменты, где просто удары ту, ту-ду, ту-ду ту-ду не напрягают. Вокальная партия - просто блядоход. Phantom of the Opera... то, как я хотел бы видеть прог-митол тех лет. Или арт-митол, не ебёт. Хотел бы побольше такого, чтобы там агрессивные моменты менялись мелодичными и немного шутливыми, это всё отдавало нотками классической музыки, да ещё соляки заставляли позабыть, что вообще-то тут и вокалист есть, менялся доминантный инструмент, они друг друга поддерживали и развивали мотив, не уходя далеко от изначальной темы, и чтобы это было одновременно и доступно, и комплексно, как 2112 от Rush... но подобного саунда, сука, почти больше то и нет! Ни в последующем творчестве Iron Maiden, ни в чьём-либо ещё. Разве что проблесками в качестве отдельных треков, инструменталы Метлы чем-то подобным веют. Transylvania - сильнейший инструментальный трек, балдёжные темы, балдёжные партии, балдёжная структура, разнообразный, энергичный, красивый. Кайфово переходит в следующюю композиуцию. Strange World если врубить левому, он задумается над тем, митол ли это. Впрочем, на то они и баллады. Эта может показаться немного наивной и прямолинейной. Я всё же полагаю, что в меру. Всё на месте, мелодишно, красиво. Charlotte The Harlot уводит баланс альбома назад к пунку и хард-роцку, для разнообразия норм трек, но, как и Sanctuary, выкинь - хуже бы не стало особо. Iron Maiden. Ну в этом треке прекрасно всё, название, наличие в соответствующем альбоме, исполнение одноимённой группой. Барабанны, гитары, вокальные партии, соляки, переходы. Главный мотив разъёбывает, простой, запоминающий и мелодичный. Конец трека прекрасно обрамляет и весь альбом. Фух, выдохнул. Ну бля, это было охуенно. Уж вуз три года, как закончил, а до сих пор альбом школьного времени щеновий восторг вызывает. На самом деле, как никакой другой альбом Iron Maiden, несмотря на то, что главный фронтмен, Брюс Дикинсон, ещё даже не пришёл. Пол Ди’Анно меньше на себя одеяло перетягивал, от него больше веяло молодостью и энергией, а от Дикинсона больше театральщиной будет веять. Всё же с высоты прожитых лет дебютник могу назвать любимейшим альбомом в дискографии Iron Maiden. Продуманный, лаконичный, мелодичный, разнообразный, запоминающийся. Тупа эталон пиздатого музла. И вроде бы въехал в него изначально быстро, а до сих пор не отпускает. Вот чего-то подобного и ждал от списка 1001 альбомов. А этого, сука, не завозят. Была бы воля, поставил 10 из 5, тупо чтоб когда остальные мой энтузиазм не разделят, средняя вышла бы пиздатой всё равно. Ну да ладно, похуй, просто буду морально готов, что пятёр боле не будэ. Главное, что я сам вроде пояснил, чё по чём.

Hell yes!! Iron Maiden is my favourite heavy metal band!! I've listened to this album many times before, but that won't stop me from listening again! This is Maiden's self titled debut album. This was before the legendary Bruce Dickinson became the lead singer of the band, and gave them that signature sound of vocals soaring overtop of amazing heavy metal! Paul Di'Anno was a great singer as well, but his voice didn't have that strength that Bruce is known for. Paul is well suited to singing metal though, because he has a gravelly voice to match the hard hitting heavy music that accompanied him. Prowler and Phantom of the Opera are classics still to this day! Even though this album pales in comparison to some of the rest of Maiden's vast catalog of music, it isn't as bad as The X-Factor or Virtual XI (two albums made in the middle of Maiden's career when Bruce took a hiatus), and it is a super strong debut album! Iron Maiden are one of the originals in the heavy metal genre, and they have influenced so many!! This is a phenomenal album, and a hell of a talented band! Steve Harris has a vision, and ran with it, and thank God for that, because what we got out of it was this stellar band making this amazing music! Steve's bass work, especially in Transylvania is fucking amazing!!!! UP THE IRONS!!! Favourite songs: Prowler, Phantom of the Opera, Running Free, Transylvania, Iron Maiden Least favourite song: Remember Tomorrow 5/5

The new wave of British Heavy Metal was gathering unprecedented speed, largely emboldened and reawakened by the bulldozing power of punk and one of the bands that became synonymous with not only the movement but the heavy metal genre as a whole started a decade of decadence that would rival any others. Iron Maiden MK 1 started out with the sounds that gave many a listeners a hair raising, corpse like jolt as though they were the mascot on the cover (his name is Eddie, by the way). They haven't gotten the numbers of the beast in their disposal and they weren't the iconic juggernauts they'd later become but this is still a solid effort and a great debut from one of heavy metal's all time greats. Shout out to Paul Di'Anno, the inaugural lead singer of Iron Maiden, his performance is nothing to sneeze at.

One of the all-time debut albums. So much energy, so much tension. The bass is so so good. Really puts the punk-metal "divide" into focus -- like, if you took out all the guitar solos, this would be ur-punk.

Fantastic debut album by one of the greatest hard rock bands. Starts strong with Prowler, a great riff. Slow down with Remember tomorrow before punching into Running free followed quickly by another classic track Phantom of the opera. A couple of "album tracks" follow before the great Charlotte and finale with the title track. A great album, well put together, it all flows smoothly. It was clear, with this album, in 1980 that Iron Maiden were going to be big.

Really groundbreaking and influential stuff here. As one of the seminal bands of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, Iron Maiden's sounds can be found in every single metal band since this album debuted. Bands such as Metallica's whole mission statement was bringing the NWOBHM sound to the US and we all know how that turned out. Iron Maiden's self-titled debut is far more punk sounding than the galloping, wailing Iron Maiden they eventually become known as. That may be due largely to this album not featuring Iconic singer "Air Raid Siren" Bruce Dickinson's touch. All the past stuff aside this album holds up. It's such a piece of music history that it's hard to dislike it. This album is still influencing bands today. Ghost even recently covered Iron Maiden's version of "Phantom of the Opera" for their Phantomime covers EP earlier this year. It may not be as theatrical as one might expect but it's importance stands tall. 5

It's amazing how the bass almost takes the lead over the album. Prowler is a great fast-paced song to start the album, and while it's fast, it doesn't mean the other songs are also like that; while there are some slow and calm ones, and even some stranges I can't explain, there are also the instrumental, wich is really good.

This is such a 5 it’s not even funny. They did this in 13 days??? And they now think the production and recording was garbage? Well fuck me then. Fuck me for LOVING this sound, this dry, raw, band in a dead little room sound! It’s incredible! Every song seems to outdo the previous one. I had my music stank face on, for this epic 20-minute run, straight from Remember Tomorrow into Strange World. I can only assume that, if they recorded this in 13 days, and they were given as little guidance as they supposedly had, it was immaculately rehearsed beforehand. This kind of music isn’t accidental or thrown together. Now I’m happy I just gave that Motörhead album a 3. This is adjacent but far, far superior. Always got turned off by their gaudy covers so never gave Iron Maiden a shot. A fool I was! A fool! If my friends start wondering about me and why I like heavy metal now apparently, I’ll just put this album on because it’s self-explanatory. An EXTREME hell yes 5/5, made me purchase an electric guitar.

It’s always a shock loading up some Iron Maiden and not getting Bruce on the mic, but this record holds its own as a debut. The biggest draw is the playing; top notch across the board. Even Paul bring his on style that really feels his own. I see why this really ushered in NWOBHM. The biggest drawbacks here are the production and songwriting. The rawness really makes it sound more thin than aggressive; not fitting for their style IMO. And while the songwriting isn’t bad per se, it doesn’t reach the heights that many of their later masterpieces showcase.

ну бля. соррян, господа митолизды, но почти ничего в душе не затронуло (хотя как раз к айрон мейдену я как-то всегда более благосклонно относился, чем к дичи типа слейера или мегадефа). Альбом 80-го года, конечно навевает мысли, что дохуя новаторство для своего времени, но как учил мудрец «Важно ли глядеть на груду кирпичей, когда построен пиздатый дом? Да не очень». Но для адекватности отбросил оценку звучания, ибо все понимаю, в 80м году вероятно ещё слабое представление имели о том, как должна тяжелая музыка звучать. А по композиторству ну что сказать... довольно дрочево, как по мне. Риффаков эпохальных не завезли, разве что чистый перебор в третьей песне звучит как что-то вневременное. И вообще баллады хорошие, обе. Не прям топ-10, но приятные, вокалист чутко так воет, аж яички холодеют немного. Помимо них ещё первую песню можно назвать хайлайтом — неплохая мелодия, вокал отрывистый и маломузыкальный, но для жанра норм. Ничем не обоснованные замедления я, скрипя зубами, стерпел, тоже вроде особенность. Но дальше, блен... Ну вторая песня вообще худшая на альбоме, вероятно. Запомнилась только одна припевная фраза и звуки сирены (банально пиздец, но опять же делаем скидку на время, спасибо что хоть отрывки из новостей не вставили). Потом Ранинг Фри — ну это совсем хуета. За всю песню мы слышим её название 32 раза (если условно считать заикания «айми раннинг... айм раннинг»). Я ебал, сука, айм ранинг фри, е, айм ранинг фри... Здесь даже рифмы нет! Фу блять, фу нахуй. В Фантоме Оперы есть зачатки годноты, но основа трека — бессмысленная дрочь с очень условным развитием, больше похоже на гитарные упражнения. Ещё и театральщина какая-то, которой фанатом никогда не был. Ну и вокал на манер армейской кричалки чет совсем аппетит отбивает. В Трансильвании какие-то шведские фолк-мотивы, как будто инфламес слушаю альбом, конечно, опередил самих инфламес на 10 лет, но всё же в плане нордического фолка я скорее доверюсь им по праву рождения, здесь же не то чтобы напрягает... просто какой-то несерьёзностью сразу веет. Я вообще довольно негативно к фолку отношусь, как по мне его надо максимально аккуратно эксплуатировать, чтобы не вышло какой-то банальной хуйни, убивающей всю эпичность но в целом трек не то чтобы плохой, просто хуй не возбуждает Ну дальше там проходняк какой-то, и заканчивается все кавером на Whenever Wherever Шакиры. Ход, безусловно, смелый и уважабельный, но текст зря изменили, какая-то влажная кровавая фантазия... ну цэ немного слишком для меня, кринж же. В целом не говно, конечно, просто дистиллированный митол — не моё, по всей видимости, плюс такой старый. Должное отдать могу, поэтому сойдусь на оценке чуть больше середняковой, 6/10.

Not my scene, but it is interesting that I never listened to this before considering how prevalent their fans were in the 1980s. I am told their later stuff is more developed and the singing is better. . . I can see how they influenced later metal genres, but again, this is not my cup of tea. There is a bit of sameness to each song and the tone of the guitars is grating and unpleasant. The singing is British post-punk and pre-hair metal chic. I find it to be unlistenable even as workout music. . .

I don't doubt that this album is notable and influential. I acknowledge that the vocals are powerful and technically impressive and that the band shreds. But I honestly don't feel like this album is actually good. I almost enjoyed Prowler and Running Free but found Strange World completely cornball and Charlotte the Harlot more offensive in its lack of originality than in its harlot-shaming. My feeling is that I enjoyed Number of the Beast more than this but, checking my records, I see I gave that album a 2. This isn't a 1 but maybe a 1.5.

This is the sort of music that would come on Kerrang! when I was 14 and I'd switch to Scuzz. It's repetitive, boring and predictable - and that's coming from someone who listens to and actually enjoys Techno music. I also hate the scary people they use on their album art. For what was meant to be the golden age of vinyl artwork they really shat the bed on this one.

Op gronde van het feit dat dit kut muziek is, weiger ik dit te luisteren.

My first reaction on seeing today’s pick was ‘oh God, no’. This is not my type of music, but I was willing to give it another go. I am sure they are talented musicians and have made a lot of money making a lot of people happy. However, this was just an affront to my ears. Screechy guitars and raspy voices. Just Horrible. To quote a later album - Run to the hills.

Alright, I have to admit I didn't listen to the whole thing., I just could not do it. And this is no aging arsehole being smug thing, I could not cop it back in the day. This is literally, and I mean literally, Spinal Tap. As I dropped the Youtube clip onto the first track I immediately started thinking about the Tap scene with the lowering of the tiny Stonehenge sarsen onto the stage, and I'll leave you with that thought.

It’s hard to not prefer the Bruce fronted band but the first two albums kick so much ass too. Great songs that they still play live like Running Free and Ofc Iron Maiden is just a testament to how timeless this album is

Even without ol Bruce-y boy, they sure as shit set the tone for all their music to come. The confidence in their foundations is exemplified very well.

Qua heavy metal komt er niks boven Iron Maiden, en dan ook nog eens dit legendarische album met Paul
