You might not know the name Martin Birch but if you are a longtime metal fan, you’ve definitely heard his amazing work. Early Fleetwood Mac records, Black Sabbath’s Heaven And Hell, work with Deep Purple and perhaps most iconically, every Iron Maiden album from Killers to Fear Of The Dark. Oh yeah, the first six classic Whitesnake albums too. That’s quite some CV, but I also know him as a great storyteller and the king of the anecdotes in any classic metal documentary worth its salt.

Just listen to how massive this decades old track still sounds. Godspeed, sir.
