Editorial Reviews

Live After Death was filmed and recorded towards the tail end of `The World Slavery Tour' over a record breaking four sold out nights at Los Angeles' 13,200 capacity Long Beach Arena. Featuring tracks from their first five albums both the album and video topped the international charts around the world. The tour opened in Warsaw in August 1984 and concluded in Los Angeles July 1985. It covered 193 concerts in 21 countries, including an incredible 112 arena shows in just the USA and Canada and saw the band playing to over a million fans in North America alone. This was the most ambitious, longest and most gruelling tour Maiden ever experienced. As the second installment to 2004's international chart topping The Early Days DVD, the second disc features the highly anticipated `The History Of Iron Maiden Part II which gives an insight, humorous and otherwise, into the making of the record as well as exploring the creativity and the background pressures created through the sheer hard work and the physical toll that comes with success at this level for a touring band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Live After Death - The History of Iron Maiden Part 2 December 29, 2007
Format:DVD
After a ten year wait Iron Maiden's classic home video release Live After Death has finally been released on DVD.

This isn't just a straight, barebones issuing of the concert on DVD, however. This is a SPECIAL edition 2 disc DVD set, which will also include bonus live footage and the History of Iron Maiden Part 2 documentary, picking up where The Early Years left off.

The official details:

Disc one contains the recording of this full 90 minute concert. Originally filmed on 35mm, the footage comes alive on DVD resulting in a visually stunning film. The disc also carries two sound options - the original concert audio specially mixed into 5.1 Surround Sound by Kevin Shirley, Maiden's producer since 1999, plus the original stereo sound track by Martin Birch, the band's producer from 1981 to 1993.

Disc two has Part 2 of the 'History of Iron Maiden', continuing on the Maiden story from "The Early Days" DVD, along with rare and unseen bonus footage in the form of BEHIND THE IRON CURTAIN, ROCK IN RIO '85, and 'ELLO TEXAS, all in all giving a total running time of well over three hours.

The multiple audio mixes and new video transfer from the original 35mm elements should make this a fantastic DVD. While this has been a long, long wait for the official DVD release, it looks like it will be well worth it.

Ths Live After Death show itself was fantastic. The band plays with an amazing amount of energy, but also with great musical ability as well. The songs are all classics, and the stage set is one of the best from that era.

(Update: The video quality of the Live After Death concert looks better than either the VHS or LaserDisc versions that I have, and the sound quality is really, really good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Somewhere Back in Time February 15, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Is this recording really 23 years old? Can it be? Has time slipped away that quickly. Some would certainly argue the opposite. In fact, all of us waiting to finally get a picture clean-up and an audio enhancement would probably say that it seems as though the wait has been forever or long overdue at best.

But here it finally is...Live After Death on two DVD disks. Disk one is the classic performance wrap-up of Iron Maiden's 1984/1985 World Slavery show in Long Beach, CA. This just has got to go into any Maiden fan's collection. The cleaned-up, full screen picture is better than the VHS, but it still makes you appreciate how much better the technology is today. The audio has been converted to 5:1 and sounds terrific. The Live After Death set list goes:

"Intro: Churchill's Speech"
"Aces High"
"2 Minutes to Midnight"
"The Trooper"
"Revelations"
"Flight of Icarus"
"Rime of the Ancient Mariner"
"Powerslave"
"The Number of the Beast"
"Hallowed Be Thy Name"
"Iron Maiden"
"Run to the Hills"
"Running Free"
"Sanctuary"

The show runs for about 90 minutes and captures a great performance and all of the energy that a Maiden show was back in the early days.

Disk two includes a lot more time than the DVD jacket suggests. The DVD jacket says that Disk Two runs for 150 minutes, but rest assured that, if you include the photo gallery tour, you get 231 minutes of Maiden stuff that includes:

1) "The History of Iron Maiden Part Two" - This is getting billed as the follow up to the 2004 release of The History Of Iron Maiden - Pt. 1: The Early Days, but don't expect the same kind of multi-year documentary here with Part 2.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still one of the best concert videos ever, but... February 8, 2008
Format:DVD
... it could have been better.

I won't spend much time talking about all of the fantastic things about this video, because everyone already knows how great this classic concert film is. 2 things I will point out that I really like about the DVD release are:

- The 5.1 sound is great. Generally I prefer the stereo track on DVD concert videos, but this is an exception. The 5.1 mix is much better than the stereo mix on this release

- All of the bonus material on Disc 2 is great, and a lot of fun to watch for the first time.

Now on to why I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5:

- I was really hoping they would clean up the video quality for the DVD release. It looks like it was ported over from a slightly faded, grainy VHS tape. With that being said, I am watching this on a big 52" TV and that may be revealing more of the video limitations than a smaller TV will.

Also, just as a note, the preview video at Amazon clearly shows the LAD concert footage in a widescreen format. The LAD concert is actually in 4:3 format, and not 16:9 as shown in the preview. This is probably a good thing, though, as converting it to 16:9 would have resulted in the cropping of the original aspect ratio.

Even though I think that they could have done a much better job cleaning up the original picture quality, this is still a must have DVD for your concert DVD collection. After all these years, it's still at the top of the list as one of the best heavy metal concerts ever captured on tape.
