Overall a good dvd - 85%

RockaRolla, February 19th, 2006

Well here's the good and bad about maiden's new dvd death on the road:

The Good:
The overall audio quality is very good, sometimes the individual guitars and the bass are a bit hard to hear but otherwise very good.

The best songs on this dvd seem to be songs from the album dance of death, namely: No More Lies, Journeyman, Dance of Death, and Paschendale. Maiden also put up a great version of their classic tracks Hallowed Be Thy Name and Fear of The Dark. Their self titled song Iron Maiden is always a good live number and showed up in fine form as well.

The Bad:
My big problem with this is the editing, done mostly (if not all) by Steve Harris. Its very flashy (but seems to get better) and especially angeres me during the guitar solos, although i actually thought he did a great job on Paschendale and No More Lies.

Other than that the song Brave New World was not nearly as good as on Rock in Rio as it seemed to lack its prior energy.

All in all this is an excellent DVD that seems to improve as it goes on, and is well worth the buy if your into Maiden or just Metal in general.
