"It is a human number. That number is six hundred and sixty six!"

Today is the 30th Anniversary of Iron Maiden's masterpiece The Number of the Beast. The album was a breakthrough in many ways, offering two of the band's most iconic tunes (the other was "Run to the Hills"), but especially for cementing their melodic sound fusing prog and metal influences into the popular imagination. Up the irons, boys. You've done us proud.
