Released 29th August 2005
Recorded entirely during the concert in Dortmund on 24th November 2003, Death On The Road features "only" 7 songs that hadn't been previously officially released in their live version. All the others have been heard live many times before, and 'Lord Of The Flies' sung (screamed? massacred?) by Bruce Dickinson could have been replaced in the setlist by a more appropriate song. In any case, Iron Maiden is essentially a live band and this recording shows that these "dinosaurs of Metal" are still able to perform admirably despite all those years already spent on the road (just ignore the overdubs!).
Although it's nothing fantastic, this album remains very good. It's a Maiden album after all! It is also dedicated to the memory of Manu Da Silva, landlord of Eddie's Bar and long-time friend of Steve Harris's, who passed away during the 2005 tour.
|Also released in a very limited edition double picture disc vinyl!
