Iron Maiden

           Original 1980 release cover                                       2001 Re-release cover

Iron Maiden was released on the 14th of April 1980 and went straight to number 4 in the charts witch for a new band was a record in itself. The album was produced by Will Malone but he did very little work and caused the band to virtually produce the album themselves, because of the bands inexperience with recording techniques at this time  the production of the album was very raw. To this day Steve Harris stills states that he hates the album because of the production, but it is considered by many (including myself) to be the best album they have ever done. 
The original cover was drawn by Derek Riggs who has done nearly all of the bands artwork and still produces art for the band even now.
