I mean, uh, please buy me these new Iron Maiden reissues?

Good news vinyl dorks! Iron Maiden is reissuing their first 8 records! What’s that you say? Maiden already did that like two years ago? Yes, but this time is different!

Back in 2012, the first 8 albums were reissued on picture disk. That’s kinda cool, I guess. This time, they’re being released with the original artwork on thick-ass 180 gram vinyl. Pretty cool? Also, a limited run of “highly collectable” 7″s will be released with them. Very cool. AND there’s an upcoming new box set containing all the albums? Dang!

From the Iron Maiden page: 

The records will be released chronologically across a two month period startingOctober 13th (14th USA) with the first 3 albums (Iron Maiden/Killers/The Number Of The Beast) and the seven corresponding 7” singles:

    I need more money

    • Metaphysical Anus

    • Metaphysical Anus

      Did you say Archspire?
      I have not heard the new Accept album and I don’t really care about it. I have never really cared about Accept.

      • You’re just exceptionally helpful today.

        • Metaphysical Anus

          You’re always so mean to me.

          • WWJDB?

          • Metaphysical Anus

            He would probably bang ladies, but I don’t have the looks or charm needed to do that.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I have the charm, even though my looks are gone.

          • Virgil the Ghost Poet

            Sure you do.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            Believe me, I don’t.

          • Virgil the Ghost Poet

            Its all attitude.

          • we’ll find out when we get to see what you look like!

          • Metaphysical Anus

            What makes you think that you will get to see my face?

          • i have to meet the guy who cracks me so consistently up!

          • Metaphysical Anus

            You’re the only one that I “crack up.”

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            What would I do? I would be nice to Mr. Anus and be a gentleman. As I did that women would force their tongues down my throat so fact I wouldn’t be able to react.

          • what would JESUS do bro….

          • Metaphysical Anus

            Isn’t that What Would James Bond Do?

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            When it comes to women I am James Bond, maybe even better.

          • what would jack dauer bo?

          • Will there ever be an article you DON’T post this picture in?

          • Metaphysical Anus

            A. I like this picture
            B. There have been articles on which I haven’t posted this picture.

          • Are you familiar with the phrase “shitposting”?

          • Metaphysical Anus

            But I haven’t posted in on every article!

          • Metaphysical Anus

            Ok, I will stop all Shrek jokes. I’m sorry for being born.

          • ty bb

          • Metaphysical Anus

            But you get to explain this to McNulty.

          • …and it is NOT going to go over well

          • Virgil the Ghost Poet

            Would that work for me too?

        • Metaphysical Anus

          Will I become the dissident of this site?

          • NDNOvHell

            Dissident Aggressor? Judas Priest!

            *high five

          • Metaphysical Anus

            I didn’t mean that. I have never even heard that song.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            You must accept the genius of accept, if you want to be accepted by this site, accept you do not have to accept any accept that came out after russian roulette in 86. You only have to accept the last 3 accept albums with mark tornillo. These albums are acceptional.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            Pun overload!

          • Cock of Steele

            My uncle teaches at a music studio and Mark Tornillo’s nephew used to take bass lessons there. Just a tidbit, I’d really like to know what the hell happened here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOh7hxZFL1s

          • NDNOvHell

            Haha. Wow. The drummer sounded like he had so much fun recording this song.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            david reece, plus terrible songs.

          • TrickleDownTacoRiff

            Was that in NJ CoS?

          • i suppose every collective needs a debbie downer.

          • is dissident Finnish for “McNulty’s favorite person”?

          • Metaphysical Anus

            A person who actively challenges an established doctrine, policy, or institution.

          • The Satan Ov Nuclear Hell

            Or in other terms: Showing Demilich to people who only listen to Amon Amarth and Metallica.

          • Scrimm

            I love Demilich. They were so good live. When they played here one of the opening bands canceled and Demilich was supposed to use their cab. they almost had to cancel but we went to our rehearsal studio and grabbed ours so the show could go on.

      • Can you make an ACCEPTion this time???!!!!

        *whoooooooooo!!!!yeeeaaaahhhh!!!!* *high5’s myself*

        • Metaphysical Anus

          Puns for everybody!

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Are the balls of your metal heart on the wall or to the wall?

          • Metaphysical Anus

            They’re in my pants and they’ll stay there. Can’t have that one incident happen again.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            What incident? Is it embarassing?

          • Metaphysical Anus

            I can’t talk about it. It would bring back memories.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I’m sorry. I had an incident once where I was really drunk and even though I was being nice and gentlemanly some woman kicked me in the dick. I fell over like a cut down tree. It hurt more than anything up to that point as she kicked them like it was a football in the NFL.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            I know that feeling.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I never want that to happen again. It felt like getting shot. It might have been because she had a boyfriend or sonething like that.

          • Virgil the Ghost Poet

            You know that some people pay extra for that.

          • no, theyre over the wall. m/

    • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

      Why is it that as soon as UDO was out of the picture the band made good albums again. Did UDO have anything to do with the songs or just lyrics. Maybe he brought a band energy to the band. Who knows, it’s like joey and anthrax, it just works.

    • Edward Meehan

      It was worth the trip there to snag this.

  • Metaphysical Anus

    I won’t buy albums that I already have and I don’t believe in hell, so your threat is meaningless to me.

    • I already bought number of the beast and a matter of life and death twice

      • Metaphysical Anus

        But you aren’t me.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            Didn’t you read my comment?

          • ..

        • Christian Molenaar

          And aren’t we glad.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            I used to like you, but now you’re just being mean to me all of the time. I used to think that you’re a cool and handsome guy.

          • Christian Molenaar

            I’m just joshin ya, you know I love all the denizens of the Toilet! Flush together, flush forever!

          • Metaphysical Anus

            I still love you, bae.

  • Alright, let’s do this right now. What is the best Iron Maiden riff. You can only pick one. I choose the main riff from The Trooper.

    • “Flash of the Blade!”

    • Pagliacci is Kvlt

      I like the fact that you can sing along to the “Fear of the Dark” riff live.

    • Metaphysical Anus

      The Fallen Angel

    • Jon Schaffer asked himself that, then proceeded to make 9 albums based on his choice.

    • Howard Dean

      Be Quick or Be Dead!

    • Tyree

      I get “Hallowed Be Thy Name” riffs stuck in my head all of the time.

    • NDNOvHell

      My immediate vote would go to the beginning of “The Duelists”, but I’ll probably change my mind in a few minutes.

    • Randall Thor

      Moonchild’s chorus is the greatest thing ever. Once you see Bruce running around on stage like a 13 year old hopped up on a bowl of M&Ms belting that song, you can’t choose any different.

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        Powerslave. No other riff equals it.

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        The intro is my shit though.

      • Cock of Steele

        Seventh Son has some of the most epic choruses out of Maiden’s whole repertoire. Moonchild, The Evil That Men Do, even Can I play with Madness, which I’m pretty sure they made so they could get a radio single are all fucking awesome. Iron Maiden rules.

        • crazytaco_12

          The Evil That Men Do is probably my favorite chorus from Bruce, and has a real great riff behind it

    • Elite Extremophile

      I really can’t disagree with you, the trooper is god tier riffage

    • Xan

      There is no way in fucking hell I could only pick one Maiden riff. Fear of the Dark, The Trooper, Aces High, and Prowler are all fucking great.

    • Virgil the Ghost Poet

      7 Son

    • Cock of Steele

      Moonchild, Back in the Village, Murders in the Rue Morgue, Killers, Iron Maiden, Flight of Icarus, Die With Your Boots on, Transylvania, I need to lie down.

    • Murders In the Rue Morgue! so thrashy.

    • FeelTheDarkness

      Powerslave

    • Alexander the Great

      • Scratch that, nobody has said Number of the Beast yet, so the bass riff on that one

        • you should do a visual critique of the dance of death album cover. well, that might only require one word:
          FLUSH!!!!!!!!!!!

          • or maybe just cut the bull and make an Iron Maiden month, but not this month, I’m feeling lazy this month.

    • Scrimm

      The main riff from Revelations.

      • crazytaco_12

        Great fucking pick

        • Scrimm

          I cry when they play this live. No joke.

          • crazytaco_12

            Dude, I teared up when they played this and the Prisoner dude. It’s just fucking beautiful dude. I mean, I know there’s an absurd amount of nostalgia mixed in with this, but they’re just great songs regardless too. It’s crazy how moving there stuff can be to me when I hear it.

          • Scrimm

            Agreed. Nothing else even comes close for me.

    • JWG

      You might as well ask a parent to pick between their children.

      By which I mean: most parents do actually have a favourite. They just don’t admit it publicly. I was in no way whatsoever being diplomatic.

    • crazytaco_12

      The intro riff/pre verse riff in the song “Iron Maiden” is definitely a great summation of all their badass riffs

    • Occams_Razor_Ramon

      Powerslave, obvs.

      • Occams_Razor_Ramon

        Actually, I’m changing my mind. Fuck you, ORR, Wrathchild is clearly the best

    • RuIN?

      I don’t have a particular riff, but I will go with the intro and the whole damn song of “Caught Somewhere in Time”. Great song on my favorite Maiden album.

    • The Satan Ov Nuclear Hell

      Chorus riff of powerslave of course.

    • Max

      Verse/main riff for “Two Minutes to Midnight.”

    • TrickleDownTacoRiff

      WRATHCHILD!! MAIN RIFF!

      COMMIN TO GET YOU OOOOOOOOOO YEA!!!!

            he is making a comeback, the trolling waters have never been better at FFB.

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    I know what I’m going to be doing around this time of the year instead of paying bills.

    • CÖÄL RÖLL FRÖM THE TÖILET BÖWL

      Going to Freshman creative writing class?

      • Guest

        Is it a good class?

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        No silly, I’m buying these. I should have been specific about that.

  • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

    Price ? I want to start a kickstarter so the TALL MAN can buy this.

    • No prices or dates announced yet, but I would estimate somewhere between an arm/an arm and a leg.

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        I will not pay my bills so I can own the singles and the albums. I have a lot of bills yet I paid my house off so that’s safe from repossession.

      • one nut and half of the other one

      • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

        Possibly a first born child, just to cover the shipping cost.

  • New The Contortionist track just dropped:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TbM–F4nam8

    • Metaphysical Anus

      It’s good stuff.

    • …and my hopes for the album are crushed.

    • Owlswald

      Jesus Christ this is absurdly awesome. Can September 16th hurry the fuck up? AOTY hands down if this song trend continues.

  • Xan

    I want all of these things.

  • Cock of Steele

    I don’t mean to be NSFW guys but, a load of historically Godlike proportions has been blown.

    • Metaphysical Anus

      A guy called Cock of Steel claims that he doesn’t mean to be NSFW? For some reason I just don’t believe that.

      • Cock of Steele

        You just gotta ACCEPT it bebe

        • Metaphysical Anus

          I fucking knew that I would regret that one comment.

  • Guppusmaximus

    HA! I remember the Maxi-Singles they released back in the day… Cool as fuck!
    180 gram will only sound better if they used the right master (not the Raw Power remaster – that was fucking distorted) and if you have the right Hi-Fi setup. I probably wouldn’t want to unseal them…

    I’d rather have them remaster the original analog masters into digital files, preferably, 96 kHz / 24 Bit and put them on an album shaped or “Eddie” shaped Flash drive(USB) in a box set w/ an album sized book of original artwork or posters…

    • If I purchase this there’s no way I unseal it. I guess they could get away with putting blank chunks of vinyl in there and I wouldn’t have a clue.

      • buy me Bonestorm or go to hell!

      • Guppusmaximus

        Well, I don’t have a proper turntable anymore,so, it wouldn’t matter if they grinded anything into it anyways:)

  • I can’t stress how much I love this band. BEST BAND EVER. PERIOD.

    • crazytaco_12

      Amen dude. I will see every show that comes through my neck of the woods for the rest of my/their live(s)

  • Scrimm

    I must have these at any price

    • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

      I commented above that a kickstarter should be started so the TALL MAN (you) could buy them.

      • Scrimm

        Hahaha sounds good to me. Especially since I have to buy a new computer now.

        • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

          ah fuck man, i went through 3 computers myself until i got some good virus protection and stopped downloading everything. Strangely enough the last time i wrecked a computer i was in the process of downloading a sleep song. What happened, did it just wear out ?

          • Scrimm

            Yeah I got home today and turned it on and after I log in the screen just goes blank. I’m using the mac that I have for recording now but I’m not a fan of it

  • crazytaco_12

    I fucking love Iron Maiden so much and will be getting a tat of their logo on my arm (god have I had a hell of a time picking what Eddie I want) and…I don’t know man, I just had to express my extreme love of Maiden! FUCK YEAH MAIDEN. I guess I’m just glad they’re being mentioned because I they seemed to be dismissed or even dissed within the scene by the too-cool kids

  • crazytaco_12

    I got the OG Iron Maiden self titled album, Somewhere in Time, and Powerslave all on first press, I’m stoked these other albums are finally coming back on solid black vinyl, I’m not much of a guy for picture discs

    • I’ve got half of these as original pressings. I still want the box set though. And agreed, I don’t dig on picture disks.

  • RuIN?

    After not hearing this song for a while, and clicking on the play button to let the Maiden bless my earholes, what pops out at me? COWBELL!! How could I have missed this or not heard this before. Bless you Nicko McBrain. Bless you.

  • guest

    I will admit, I have never been the biggest Iron Maiden fan, but in my advancing age(a whopping 24) even I can’t deny their greatness
