Iron Maiden vs. Morbid Angel – Metal Madness 2013, Round 1

Iron Maiden vs. Morbid Angel
EMI / Earache

Two more legendary albums are showcased in the Stage Dive Region of Loudwire’s March Metal Madness 2013. With 32 albums in total on the chopping block, only one can emerge as the greatest of all time. Will it be from one of these two innovators?

Iron Maiden‘s ‘The Number of the Beast’ isn’t only a masterpiece in its songwriting, the album gave Maiden fans their first taste of the great Bruce Dickinson. It feels like there are too many classics on the record to count, even though the original recording only featured eight songs, but with the album’s title track, ‘Run to the Hills,’ ‘The Prisoner,’ ‘Children of the Damned’ and more featured within, ‘The Number of the Beast’ is truly brilliant.

Morbid Angel brought swift change to the world of death metal with the release of their debut album, ‘Altars of Madness.’ Delivering ‘Immortal Rites,’ ‘Suffocation’ and the monster track ‘Chapel of Ghouls,’ this Morbid Angel album is undeniably important. It’s one of the best death metal albums of all time, but can it hit No. 1 in March Metal Madness 2013?

Iron Maiden’s ‘The Number of the Beast’ or Morbid Angel’s ‘Altars of Madness’? Vote for your favorite album in the poll below!

(This poll will end on Monday, March 18 at 11:59 PM EST. Fans are able to vote once per hour, so keep coming back to make sure your favorite album wins!)
