In keeping with Maiden's penchant for looking to history and literature for inspiration, songs like the eight-minute plus "Paschendale," with its light use of strings and intriguing time changes, is based on a historic World War I battle.

List All 95 Reviews
Iron Maiden return after their comeback album "Brave New World" with a darker and without doubt better effort. The music is perfect and you get great melody, thunderous riffs and bits of orchestral parts which blends perfectly with their style of music.

||Bruce is back|
Can't really enjoy Maiden without Bruce, glad he's back and the sound brings back good memories.4-5 songs pretty hot, the rest is average. Overall good CD.
By a reviewer (Florence, Kentucky)
||Fantastic and Brilliant|
Maiden have proved once again that they are the best in their genre. With this album they deliver loads of nut-cracking riffs and a whole variety of melodies but still keeping themselves contemporary.
By a reviewer (Fgura ,Malta)
||NOT SO GREAT|
If you like FEAR OF THE DARK, VISRTUAL XI or FACTOR X, maybe you will ove this album. Recorded with old technology, this full of slow parts (maybe thinking that they are an epica band now), long songs.
By kaihansen_99 (Los Mochis, Sinaloa)
||Definently Iron Maiden|
I sure would like to see them expand there musical horizons. Every time I buy the new CD expecting to see something different I hear Iron Maiden themes from there other albums.

||well worth the listening|
these guys just keep getting better and better with time
By a reviewer (owen,wis)
||13th album and still standing !!|
This album is phenomenal! It is a compilations of what MAIDEN does the best: intricate guitar solos, great drums and a fantastic bass playing... and of course Bruce at the healm of the ship. Very inspired lyrics in the Bruce Dickinson tradition and melodies with subtile flavors of the Blaze Bailey-era.
By a reviewer (Nashville, TN, USA)
||Another milestone for Maiden!|
As a fan of this band for over 20 years now, I have to say, they have never written or performed a bad song.
By a reviewer (Cave Creek, AZ)
||Still the best!|
Iron Maiden has done it once again. "Dance of Death" is an album bursting with rock/metal goodness. Every track on this album is pure, head-banging gold.
By a reviewer (Sterling, CO, USA)
||"Dance of Death" Metal Classic!|
Another five star "classic" from Iron Maiden. No room for any argument!
By robert.whitney3 (Lancaster, PA)
||New Maiden cd|
while i have not heard the whole cd yet i have heard the first song and i think it is quite a good song despite the fact that it is kind of short.
By a reviewer (new haven, CT)
||four out of Five|
i think this is one of their best albums with tracks like the title track, Montségur, the 8 minute epic Paschendale,Wildest Dreams,Rainmaker,the acoustic song journeyman and no more lies.
By Matt (nova scotia Canada)
Not have singles. Not have interesting songs. Is a bad work.
By arcanogf (Chile)
||not a strong release|
Maiden didn't hit a stride with this one. I will say that I enjoy "the rainmaker", the title track and the "losfer words" rehash "montseguer"
By rob (medina, n.y.)
||No doubt - Maidens worst ever|
Don´t waste your money on this awful album. Anybody who claims this album to be perfect and their best must really lost their sense of what great Metal is and especially what Iron Maiden normally stands for.
By B. Chris. (Copenhagen, DK)
||A good album|
first of all you cant expect this to be like any thing maiden has released so stop comparing it to 7th son or number of the beast or powerslave.
By Pat (Bismarck,ND,USA)
that dumbfack below me is not an iron maiden fan the album kicks @$$ of course not as much as the first 2 the only not so great albums were the ones with Blaze Bayley but it was still good Iron Maiden is one of the best Metal band of all time.
By julianteodocio21 (Los Angeles, CA, USA)
||Crap. The worst Maiden album ever|
I only still owe this Cd because I love Maiden and I always buy their new releases but this one was the biggest disppoint of all time.
By Bon_190280 (Elsinore, Denmark)
||A darn good release|
First off for the reord i have not listened to their first 2 albums, having said this i would put this in their top 5.
By mitchell (boulder co,)
||one of maiden best!|

By Franki (canovanas,puerto rico)
||good, but lacked the "vava voom"|
i really liked this album, but it did lack sumthing that was there on all previous albums (except the blaze bayley albums, good god!)paschendale and rainmaker are the only instant classics on this album, unlike The Numer of The Beast, Powerslave etc.
By ironmaiden_motorhead_acdc (Falkirk, Scotland)
Im a big music fan and I like all kinds of music, from classic to ethnic, all points in between, good music.
By sithlord_guiji2 (somewhere in time)
||Are You Guys Crazy?|
Wow. With this CD, maiden have shown consistency after Brave New World and are further proving they are the best band of all time, i don't know what some of you are talking about, give the record another spin, it's gold.
By Jon (Winnipeg, MB)
they're going down like metallica did not as bad as st. anger but if the keep going in this way they will end like metallica i LOVE iron maiden but they could have done a better album.
By Holy (position)
||Mature Maiden Meets Mozart|
I am an avid music fan, having collections from Enya to Metallica, from Mozart to AC/DC. I love music. I have always enjoyed Maiden music but fell away from their stuff with Fear of the Dark.
By braithy (Whyalla, Australia)
||It's the best maiden album ever!!!|
With Brucey & Adrian retuning in '00 maiden is back at the heights of it's glory day. I thought "Brave new world" was good.
By Eddie (Sri Lanka)
||Rock at it's Best|
this is one bloody great album not a bad track rock/metal at it's best imposters beware listen to this and hear how it should be done five stars from me.
By East Grinstead West Sussex England (email@example.com)
||Maiden Lives Forever|
No matter how much I love "Number Of The Beast" and other early Maiden songs. This album is totally awesome and somewhat surprising.
By Bobbytmc7 (Warwick RI)
This is a fvairly good album, a good follow-up to "BNW" but it feels a little rushed and doesn't have as many classics as usual.
By Clatta07 (Williamston, USA)
IM A BIG MUSIC FAN, AND WHETHER YOU TAG THIS MUSIC AS METAL OR PROG OR ANYTHING, THIS IS A GREAT ALBUM! FULL & PACKED WITH ANTHEMS AND HISTORY, THIS IS PROBABLY MAIDENS MOST ACCOMPLISHED INCARNATIONS OF ALL TIME! HERE WE HAVE A VERY WELL BALANCED RECORD, FULL OF PASSION AND MUSICIANSHIP, WITH A FRESH AND HEAVY SOUND AND A HUNGER TO STEP AND DEVELOPE NEW GROUNDS.
By HENRY (Mexico City)
||It did not change|
The cd is actualy good i tought this cd would change like metallica. it as good song. my favorite is rainmaker.
By jonathan (canada)
||It's Not All That Bad!|
Sure, this album isn't the best Maiden release, far from it, but i dont think its the worst, and tracks such as Wildest Dreams, Rainmaker, and Dance Of Death itself rescue this CD.
By James (Helsby, Cheshire, UK)
||Oh no what happened?|
When I bought Brave New World I was so excited that Bruce and Adrian had returned. That album was fantastic. It had great sound, great tunes - everything.
By Sparky (New Zealand)
This record is Blaze Bayley era instrumentals meets Brave New World. Picking up more where 1995's X-Factor left off than from Brave New World it is clearley more inspired than the later.
By Nick (Sacramento, CA, USA)
||One of the Best Albums!!|
You that thinks that this album sounded old and dusty, i'm kind of disappointed for that Rewiew o'yours... :|:S This album rocks harder than many of their "older" albums!!!(all of them are just as good, as Dance Of Death though;-) That says Alot!!:-P I have been a fan since I for the first time heard Maiden rockin' over my stereo-amp,then I was spellbound... :) Okey enough! I got this album THE moment it was released, and I can Recommend it!!!:D:D:D.
By weekend_warrior_maiden (Stavanger,Rogaland, Norway)
Iron Maiden is back. This album contains great material.It is as good as Brave New World. This band can still rock. Brilliant work!
By andressuarezp (Bogotá, Col.)
This sounds like a tired band. I have been a fan of Maiden since 1982, but this really disappointed me. The songs sound old and dusty, Dickinson's voice sounds strained, and the production is dire.
By kenny5150 (Western Australia)
||iron maiden does it again|
great c.d. wildest dreams is amazing song, gates of tommorow is amazing, rainmaker, there all great! its classic iron maiden. rock solid album.
By taylor (vancouver canada)
||Orchaestra in Metal.|
This.... is an epic of epic proportions. there's no other possible words for it. Sure it isnt Fear of the dark or Number of the Beast-- but its just so incredible! Three guitarists certainly has made quite a difference.
By J.Ratcliffe (Redbank, VIC, Australia)
||Agreed...this is as good as golden Maiden|
But for the love of god, do we really need Janick?
By Somewhere (Time)
||Maiden not rocking?|
Dance of Death might be a tad diffrent than "old school" Iron Maiden but it still very much rocks as much as any of their past albums.
By DeadlyFred (Somewhere In Time)
all i want to know is when will iron maiden wake up and start rocking again.
By toddlnuzum (bay city mi usa)
||BETTER THE RELIC|
IT`S GOOD, JUST THAT. IF YOU WANT TO LISTEN TO EXCELLENT IRON STUFF, GO BACKWARDS TO THEIR GOLDEN YEARS WITH ALBUMS LIKE THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST, POWERSLAVE, SOMEWHERE IN TIME, PIECE OF MIND,FEAR OF THE DARK, SEVENTH SON OF A SEVENTH SON, NO PRAYER FOR THE DYING AND BRAVE NEW WORLD(ALL FROM DICKINSON`S ERA).
By PRISONER (Albany,NY,USA)
this album is "fun". the new guitars that Maiden have are awesome! stand out tracks on this are Rainmaker, No More Lies, Monstegur, and New Frontier.
By heminder (birmingham, uk)
I've been a fan for ages and I've observed (listened, for that matter) lately that their albums post-7th Son of A 7th Son are raw and just somewhere between 2 or 3 out of 5 stars.
By linda erl (jakarta, indonesia)
||As good as Powerslave?|
This CD rocks. I love every song. Buy it now! Still, nothing beats Powerslave with such powerful driving riffs as in Flash of the Blade and Rime of the ancient Mariner.
By knuk2k (Longford Ireland)
||up the irons|
at first i was skeptical because of the meledies, usually catchy and almost poppy, then when i actually listen to it i knew it was a huge jump for maiden heads every where.
By frodo (everett, wa, usa)
||One of Maidens best CD's- who could imagine after 25 years!!|
I've been a maiden fan since a little kid and the piece of mind album. i was skeptical when i bought dotd, but holy crap, what an amazing CD! without a doubt one of the best.
By stu (los angeles)
||GREAT ALBUM REALLY ENJOYABLE|
This album is new and great creativity this incredible band has to offer. It might not please all of their long-time fans but I don't think it should be compared to things they done in the past almost twenty years ago wouldn't you say so? I Judge it on how it sounds, Besides if they stayed exactly the same people would be saying that they are repeating the same albums over and over and over and over again.
By A Reviewer (Las Animas, CO)
This disc is easily one of Iron Maidens best! I love every song here, I know some people won't feel the same about all of them, that's cool.

Train of Thought CD (2003)
Dance of Death CD music TRAIN OF THOUGHT continues the legacy of the progressive metal legends, with all the requisite superhuman metallic musicianship that their fans have come to expect. This outing continues in the heavier mode that began with 2002's SIX DEGREES OF INNER TURBULENCE, reaching even further into darker, personal lyrical themes.
Guitars are the dominant expressive voice here, with keyboards scaled considerably back from the signature Dream Theater sound. Band members Mike Portnoy (drums) and John Petrucci (guitar) continue their do-it-yourself production approach, opting for recording venues on their native Long Island (much of the band's album work has taken place in upstate New York at Bear Tracks and Little Bear Studios). "As I Am" and "This Dying Soul" at times borrow generously from Metallica, featuring that band's well-known use of tri-tones, and vocalist James LaBrie even tries his hat at some Hetfield-isms. Possibly due to Petrucci's tenure on the G3 Tour (with Joe Satriani and Steve Vai), TRAIN finds him returning to Dream Theater wielding an even more lethal guitar soloing style. Of all the new tracks, the instrumental "Stream of Consciousness" sounds in closest proximity to the band's earlier material, and, for longtime fans, this bodes well for their future efforts.
2003 progressive metal masterpiece from Dream Theater, featuring 'As I Am' plus put this disc in your CD-rom for access to material you can't find anywhere else. Elektra.

|Brave New World CD (2000) Top Seller
Dance of Death songs "The Wicker Man" was nominated for the 2001 Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance.
After playing to packed houses in 1999, the reformed and revamped Iron Maiden now satisfies their fans' hunger with a new collection of material. Vocalist Bruce Dickinson and guitarist Adrian Smith rejoin the fold, which is now a six member, three guitar sonic assault. Produced by Kevin Shirley (Aerosmith, The Black Crowes), BRAVE NEW WORLD is Maiden's finest album in 12 years.
"The Wicker Man" is a heavy, yet accessible tune with a memorable chorus propelled by Nicko McBrain's double bass drum thunder. "Blood Brothers" is a melancholy song featuring strings and lush arrangement, while the title track shows that Dickinson's pipes are in fine form; the man can belt out a song like no one else. "Dream of Mirrors" begins acoustically and builds to a mammoth, grandiose blockbuster. Master bassist Steve Harris also lends his keyboard prowess to the nine-minute epic, "The Nomad." Iron Maiden is proudly still waving the metal flag; there's no group more fitting to lead a heavy rock revival. An album of conviction, BRAVE NEW WORLD shows a band still at the top of its game.

|Seventh Son of a Seventh Son CD (1988) Top Seller
Dance of Death album for sale ON SEVENTH SON OF A SEVENTH SON, the songs tell the tale of a young prophet who predicts the destruction of his village, and is ignored when he tries to warn the others. Eventually, the man goes mad and commits suicide. Employing synthesizers, Iron Maiden takes a two-fold risk: with the music and by doing a concept album. This formula might have spelled disaster for most bands, but not Iron Maiden. SEVENTH SON OF A SEVENTH SON turned out to be one of the band's strongest releases, debuting in the U.K. charts at Number One, and spawning four Top-10 singles ("Can I Play With Madness," "The Evil That Men Do," "The Prophecy," and "Infinite Dreams"). The band's popularity had reached an all-time high around this time, as Maiden headlined the 1988 Monsters of Rock concert at England's Castle Donnington. During the single-day event, Iron Maiden played to a record 100,000 fans, headlining over such big names as Kiss, David Lee Roth, Guns N' Roses, and Megadeth.

|Fear of the Dark CD (1992) Top Seller
Dance of Death CD music Although alternative rock was burning up the charts in 1992, longtime metallist outfit Iron Maiden admirably stuck to its guns with FEAR OF THE DARK. This effort follows in the path of 1990's NO PRAYER FOR THE DYING, as Maiden again sticks to more simple compositions, avoiding the more ambitious songwriting tendencies that marked the group's late-'80s work. The album-opening "Be Quick or Be Dead" recalls the work of such younger speed metal bands as Megadeth, while "From Here to Eternity" is one of Maiden's few forays into tales of sex and sin, a la Guns N' Roses. Unfortunately, Singer Bruce Dickinson quit the band after the ensuing tour (although he and guitarist Adrian Smith would return for a reunion in 1999).

|Matter of Life and Death CD (2006)
Dance of Death buy CD music Like all the best metal bands, Iron Maiden has never shied away from grandiosity in both material and presentation--"Rime of the Ancient Mariner," anyone?--and MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH follows in this same bigger-is-better tradition. From the cover art depicting tanks and skeletal soldiers to standout tracks like "These Colors Don't Run" and "For the Greater Good of God," MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH finds these elder statesmen of metal simultaneously reveling in and protesting the horrors of modern warfare and the irony of holy war. Bruce Dickinson proves once again that he is one of metal's greatest vocalists, and Kevin Shirley's no-frills production keeps the focus on the band's trademark guitar interplay. The mood is somber, but the riffs kill and the refreshingly strict 4/4 tempos keep the band close to the script that made them metal legends.
