In celebration of Iron maiden's phenomenal 25 year history, 'The Number Of The Beast' is set to be re-released on January 3rd 2005.

The title track of the band's third (and first number 1!!) album, ‘The Number Of The Beast’ was a Top 20 hit when originally released in 1982, and is rightly regarded as an all time Maiden classic. This song typifies the band’s sound signature of that era, from the chilling spoken-word introduction to the throat-ripping opening scream from Bruce Dickinson. The single will be released in three very special Limited Edition formats, featuring never before available live recordings from the Clive Burr Charity shows at Brixton Academy in March 2002.
