STEVE ASHEIM picks favorite metal record

Steve Asheim from DEICIDE on "Killers" by IRON MAIDEN:

"I don't know if it's the best metal album ever made but the metal record I look upon most fondly would be IRON MAIDEN's 'Killers'. It's just a great, great record and it brings me back to those early days. That was the first of that new wave of metal that I was exposed to — before that it was all KISS and SABBATH. For me as a drummer listening to Clive Burr's playing, it was very in your face and precise and well executed straight-ahead metal. JUDAS PRIEST had the riffs and the twin guitar stuff but they still used a rock style of drumming, whereas Clive Burr was just laying in there heavy-duty and that's what caught my attention."

He thinks a lot like ANUS, it seems.
