The Beast is, of course, Iron Maiden, whose 1982 Number of the Beast is one of heavy music's paramount releases–as any metal fan worth their mettle knows. This 16-song tribute, dominated by European underground metal bands, is often akin to death-metal karaoke. With songs from both the Paul DiAnno and Bruce Dickinson eras of Maiden, most of the true-to-original versions are decent, highlighted by Grave Digger's "Running Free," Sonata Arctica's "Die with Your Boots On," and Iced Earth's "Transylvania." Interpreting Maiden is the maiden of Singery, Kimberly Goss. Her higher, more delicate vocals on "Number of the Beast" are surprising but interesting. Tierra Santa's version of "Flight of Icarus" is initially slow, but then sped up to an even faster tempo than the original, which is also unexpected. Cradle of Filth appropriately tackle "Hallowed Be Thy Name," the ominous graveyard vocals certainly bearing no resemblance to Dickinson's. The tuned-down death-metal attack of Disbelief's "Stranger in a Strange Land" is another fresh take on a classic cut. Still, this tribute, while a treat for devotees, ultimately proves there ain't nothing like the real thing. –Katherine Turman
