Parlophone Records will mark the 40th anniversary of Iron Maiden’s third album, The Number Of The Beast with a commemorative cassette release on March 18, 2022.

This seminal recording, first released in the UK on March 22, 1982 – and the first to feature Bruce Dickinson as vocalist – catapulted Iron Maiden to international stardom and set them on course for the spectacular trajectory of success which the band continues to enjoy and develop to this day.
The cassette is comprised of the 2015 remastered recordings of the original eight songs on the album, with front cover colour art based on the 1982 C-60 cassette release plus a re-designed and updated inlay.
Ultimately, it’s a tribute to a watershed album that sold in its millions in record stores all around the world; a celebration of those bygone times and a fitting souvenir for the fans who have loyally followed the band ever since.
