No. 3: Iron Maiden, ‘Iron Maiden’ – Best Debut Metal Albums

Iron Maiden, 'Iron Maiden'

Iron Maiden didn’t release their first studio album until five years after the band’s initial formation, but once the self-titled record was unleashed in 1980, the Irons were official up!

Bassist Steve Harris penned the majority of ‘Iron Maiden,’ including staple tracks ‘Phantom of the Opera’ and the album’s title track — not to ignore vocalist Paul Di’Anno‘s contributions to ‘Remember Tomorrow’ and ‘Running Free.’ U.S. audiences were treated to a little extra when ‘Iron Maiden’ was finally released overseas, including the Di’Anno / Harris / Dave Murray power hit ‘Sanctuary.’
