Iron Maiden - Number Of The Beast, The
Hallowed Be Thy Name
By: fatback
Date: 30 Jun 2009

Hallowed Be Thy Name is obviously a song about imprisionment, and what goes through one's mind during this time. The first two lines, "I'm waiting in my cold cell when the bell begins to chime/Reflecting on my past life and it doesn't have much time" tell you that the man is in prison, and that he does not have much time, meaning he is to be executed. The mentioning of 'Gallows Pole' indicates that the death would be done by hanging, therefore setting the story in older times.

The song also outlines most of the stages that one goes through after knowing he is to die. "Can it be there's been some sort of an error .... Is it really the end not some crazy dream" shows the first stage, denial.. the man is searching for a way out of the situation. "It's not easy to stop from screaming" is the most obvious stage, fear of death. "Tears they flow but why am I crying? After all am I not afraid of dying Don't believe that there never is an end" shows the acceptance stage of death, and it also shows that the man understands that no one can live forever, and this is his end. This song also shows how people can turn to religion when near death, "If there's a God then why has he let me die?" is an almost plea for there to be a God, and for some deity to save the man.

The death man ultimately finds religion, for his soul is sent to heaven, and he sees the truth, the light you might say, "Mark my words believe my soul lives on Don't worry now that I have gone I've gone beyond to see the truth". The final three lines summarize the whole song, if only very vaguely. "When you know that your time is close at hand Maybe then you'll begin to understand Life down there is just a strange illusion" .. this means, when you near death, many things come to your attention, and only then can you truely believe in yourself, and what you were mean to do, and in the afterlife, what was meant to be.

Iron Maiden - Number Of The Beast, The
Run To The Hills
By: fatback
Date: 30 Jun 2009

This song is about the European arrival to the "New World," told from the perspective of both the oppressed Cree and the invading Anglo-Saxon soldiers. The first verse ("White man came across the sea, he brought us pain and misery") is from the point of view of the Natives. The second verse ("Chasing the redskins back to their holes, fighting them at their own game") is from the white man's eyes, and the last verse ("Selling them whiskey and taking their gold, enslaving the young and destroying the old") is an impartial third-person narration.

In 2002, this was re-released as a single to help promote a tour the band organized to raise money for former drummer Clive Burr, who suffered from Multiple Sclerosis.

Iron Maiden - Number Of The Beast, The
Children of the Damned
By: fatback
Date: 30 Jun 2009

This dark and compelling track is inspired by the 1963 film of the same name, which is about six children with psychic abilities who are forced to battle for their survival against an inferior human race. The sing describes the death of the last of the children. With only one child left, the song follows his last moments as he steps out to face the humans which are intent on destroying him by burning him at the stake.

The story of the film is that of six children who are born at different locations around the world with amazingly high intelligence and special powers. Scientists from the United Nations have the children move to London fro further tests. While the researchers argue about what to do with them, the military already has a plan for them. However, the six children take matters in their own hands.

The dreamiest album from this great trio. Angelic voice from Elizabeth Fraser floating in the air and the magic of Robin Guthrie's guitar.

Judas Priest - British Steel
British Steel

Rating:

When it comes to talent, this band is packed full of it. This album has songs and riffs on it to make you stop procrastinating about picking up the guitar and learning something new. Steady driving beats and vocals unattainable by most other singers at that time and even still today, this album is one of the best metal albums ever.

Warrant - Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich
Dirty Rotten

Well, for some, this album was just another reminder that there were too many hair bands out there. For others who listened, it was a great display of talented musicians. If you like interesting guitar licks, a fairly good vocalist and dont mind only likeing half an album, buy this. Two or three songs off this album MIGHT make you feel glad you bought it.

Guns N' Roses - Appetite For Destruction
Appetite For Destruction

When this album came out, it was a time when metal was seeing a bit of a decline caused by feminine looking rock bands. This album boosted the amount of die-hard metal fans and introduced a very legit rock n roll band who would outlast many others. Axle's wild sounding vocals and metalhead attitude with Slash's catchy guitar riffs set GNR apart from other "new" bands. This album will always be one of my favorites. A must have for guitarists.

AC/DC - For Those About To Rock (We Salute You)
For Those About To Rock
By: wwhalen
Date: 10 May 2009
Rating:

Brian Johnson may not have surpassed the bluesy yet raunchy voice of Bon Scotts, but was responsible for adding vocal power to the already hyper guitar sound of Angus Young. This album was one of the greatest of Brians carreer with AC/DC. I give it 5 adrenaline pumps out of 5.
