Iron Maiden: The Writing on the Wall (Review)

In 2018 Black Sabbath’s ridiculously awesome “Symptom of the Universe” was voted the greatest riff of all time in Metal Hammer. And rightly so. So let’s take a look at the song credited as almost single-handedly inspiring thrash metal. Top 5 Renditions 1- The original It’s the original.
