Overview

Recorded in December at the Westfalenhalle Arena (Dortmund, Germany) during the band's 2003 Dance of Death tour, the two-disc Death on the Road deviates little from Iron Maiden's countless other live albums. While blissfully heavy on the group's excellent -- and suitably theatrical -- new material, longtime fans do not need any more live versions of "Number of the Beast," "Hallowed Be Thy Name," "Run to the Hills," or "The Trooper." All that said, Iron Maiden do not disappoint, laying to waste any notions that they can't hold themselves to the performance standards of their younger days. Even Bruce Dickinson, despite a voice that's now often more choked than feral, can barely keep himself from leaping into the crowd, and it's that kind of enthusiasm that makes each and every live release -- and there are a lot of them -- worthwhile to some degree.

Unfortunately, Iron Maiden is losing its productive power and creativity. If you look at the track list, it will come clear to you that almost all the tracks are re-released of things we have already heard. Iron Maiden, as it seems, is trying to sell new songs, but they cannot put so much in music making and lyrical creativity therefore, we see the new songs hidden with the older songs to fulfill the contract. This trick is shown in other bands, such as Megadeth, and the trick is popular. The downfall is that Iron Maiden had released too many "best hits" records that I don't want to get any of them anymore, not unless something happens to the band (I hope not).
