Phantom Of The Opera è la quarta traccia di Iron Maiden, l’album di debutto degli Iron Maiden rilasciato nel 1980. Nella versione rimasterizzata per cd del 1998 è la quinta traccia.
Brano prevalentemente strumentale, Phantom Of The Opera è un magnifico pout-pourri heavy metal ricco di spunti, di riff di chitarra molto azzeccati e di assoli altrettanto interessanti.
Testo e musica sono stati scritti da Steve Harris, ispirandosi al romanzo del francese Gaston Leroux.

Proponiamo la tablatura completa per entrambe le chitarre di Phantom Of The Opera.
