RIP Barry Clayton

Barry Clayton, the thrilling voice of Iron Maiden‘s Number of the Beast intro, passed away two weeks ago.

To cite metalhammer.co.uk:

”RIP Barry. We will never forget those hallowed lines:

Woe to You Oh Earth and Sea
For the Devil sends the beast with wrath
Because he knows the time is short
Let him who have understanding
Reckon the number of the beast
For it is a human number
Its number is six hundred and sixty six.”
