Editorial Reviews

Recorded at the Westalenhalle Arena in Dortmund Germany during the Dance Of Death tour in 2003, Death...captures the excitement of a Maiden show. Performing their greatest hits from their entire career in front of thousands of hardcore fans, this album is the release Maiden fans have been talking about and waiting for since early spring. Columbia. 2005.

I have been an Iron Maiden fan since 1983.

Why not play Somewhere In Time, or Wasted Years?

The sound/mix is pretty good for a live cd.

Believe it or not, before this was released, this legendary British heavy metal band already had seven live albums and at least three greatest hits compilations under their belts. So was it really necessary to release another live album? Do we really need another version of "Run To The Hills" or "Hallowed Be Thy Name?" Anybody who isn't a diehard Iron Maiden fan would say nah. One could even make the case that Maiden's last two compilation discs ("Death on the Road" and the ironically titled "The Essential Iron Maiden") were "sell-outs," or desperate attempts to rake in more money.

But, fortunately, six of the songs on here are from Maiden's 2003 album, "Dance of Death" (since this was recorded on the "Dance of Death" Tour), so, therefore, the live versions of these songs hadn't been heard before.

And "Death on the Road" is still a great live album. Frontman Bruce Dickinson's vocals are top-notch and the rest of the band are in fine form, as well. Bruce really has a wonderful voice, and, as he shows here, his vocal chords are very elastic. Songs like "Wildest Dreams," "Rainmaker," and "Brave New World" are very exciting because Bruce's almost soulful vocals triumph over running rhythms which consist of fast guitars and energetic drum beats. Elsewhere on the first disc, "Wraithchild," "Dance of Death," and "Paschendale" feature great, wild solos, and "The Trooper" and "Lord of the Flies" put catchy "Oooh-oh-oh" sing-alongs on top of walls of wailing guitars.

Later, Bruce digs deep for a lung-stretching vocal performance on the ultra-catchy and famous tune "Hallowed Be Thy Name.

This is the live album that didn't need to be. While it's always nice to hear some new material live, the sound and production aren't really there. Moreover, there really was no need for yet another release of the same old staples such as NOTB, FOTD, etc. It would have been great to get some other material that we hadn't heard in at least 10 years. There is simply no excuse for this as Maiden has a terrific catalogue to draw from. I must also say that the performance is adequate, but not stellar. I am also a little confused as to why Jannick Gers' playing is turned way up while it is hard to make out Adrian Smith's playing. Clearly, this should have been the other way around as Jannick butchers almost everything he touches. Anyway, this would be a great live album for most bands, but for Maiden, it is simply lackluster and tired.

This album is only good for getting the Dance Of Death songs live and they are not all that great. Lord Of The Flies is best left for Blaze Bayley too sing...sorry Bruce. Get Rock In Rio and forget this bore fest. Bruce's singing is very tired sounding on this and all three guitar players pretty much do mindless noodling on this album...only good thing is McBrain's drumming...sorry, huge Maiden fan here but the setlist sucks and so does the overall performance.

You want an honest review then read here. I dont praise a band 5 stars cause I simply love them. I will tell it like it is, this album is not that great live, it isn't horrible but it is more in lines of Real Live and Real Dead One. Sounds slightly sloppy, and the vocals are not the best either. It just is not top notch, especially after Rock In Rio. Yes the band is great and we know it, but with so many live albums by these guys this what to expect on this:

They sound very tired and worn on this live album.

I am a huge fan of these guys. I love all the albums, with the fact that some are stronger then others. Yet somehow each album fits that certain period of your life and when you listen to it, it gives a nostalgic factor that can only be describe by Maiden fans.

Here is the problem! Maiden finally get back together (with Dickinson and Smith) and make an epic album (Brave New World) and tour with a incredible double CD album tour called Rock in Rio. Then Dance of Death came out and was sorta shock to some fans since it was hot/cold between fans, some will agree that it was not their best, some will say nothing compares. I personally think it is a strong album with a direction to their roots, however it was a step down from BNW (IMHO). Since those 2 albums are out with the reintroduction of Dickinson and Adrian Smith, we expect top notch music.

PAY ATTENTION MAIDEN - We don't need anymore GREATEST HITS or LIVE albums!!!!! We want more studio albums!!!!!

Get in the studio and just keep making studio albums one after the other, no more tours or major breaks, pour that overflowing cup of talent in the studio and go back in and do it again before you guys retire!!!!

Do these guys put out a live cd every month?, it sure seems like it. I think perhaps the only band that beats them in the live cd department is Aerosmith!

Anyway, is it necessary that we have yet another offering of live Maiden tunes? Well the answer is YES and NO. This one gives you the newer tunes such as Dance Of Death, Rainmaker, Brave New World, Paschendale, Lord Of The Flies etc, basically stuff you're never heard live before. They all sound really good live with all kinds of energy being put forth for our listening pleasure.

Maiden have always been a very good live band and this cd represents that to a T. I would rate this live offering as their second best cd coming in behind Live After Death, which we all know is gold. Rock In Rio is a very close third, however I have to put this one ahead of it simply because of the newer tunes it contains. Paschendale, Dance Of Death and the Journeymen sound awesome live. You know, Paschendale just might be the best song ever penned by the boys!!

The sound/mix is pretty good for a live cd. It's as good or better than any of the other two live cd's mentioned above.

So in conclusion is it worth spending the extra $$$'s on? Well truthfully it's a decision you'll have to make for yourself. I would say yes, but that's because I'm bias and because the newer songs sound great live.

Up The Irons!!
