All Music Guide - Greg Prato
Iron Maiden's World Slavery Tour was one of the longest and most extensive tours ever undertaken by a rock band. Lasting from August 9, 1984, to July 5, 1985, and visiting such countries as Poland, Austria, Hungry, Yugoslavia, Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Scotland, England, Germany, Sweden, Canada, Japan, and the U.S., the show included a mammoth setup that replicated the intricate ancient Egyptian scenery of the Powerslave album cover. As a "thank you" to the hundreds of thousands of fans who packed arenas the world over, the double-disc live set Live After Death was issued in 1985.

Iron Maiden's World Slavery Tour was one of the longest and most extensive tours ever undertaken by a rock band. Lasting from August 9, 1984, to July 5, 1985, and visiting such countries as Poland, Austria, Hungry, Yugoslavia, Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Scotland, England, Germany, Sweden, Canada, Japan, and the U.S., the show included a mammoth setup that replicated the intricate ancient Egyptian scenery of the Powerslave album cover. As a "thank you" to the hundreds of thousands of fans who packed arenas the world over, the double-disc live set Live After Death was issued in 1985. Disc one is comprised of selections from a four-night stand at L.A.'s Long Beach Arena, with disc two comprised of performances from London's Hammersmith Odeon. The album is essentially a best-of of sorts, since most of their singles released up to this point are featured in all of their high-decibel glory: "Aces High," "2 Minutes to Midnight," "The Trooper," "Flight of Icarus," "The Number of the Beast," "Run to the Hills," and "Running Free." Also included are such strong album tracks as "Wrathchild," "22 Acacia Avenue," "Children of the Damned," "Phantom of the Opera," "Hallowed Be Thy Name," "Iron Maiden," plus their two epics, "Powerslave" and "Rime of the Ancient Mariner," making it a near-complete overview. Live After Death is easily one of heavy metal's best live albums. [On all of Iron Maiden's 1998 reissues on Raw Power a multimedia section is featured on the CD, which includes videos, band biographies, tour date history, and photo galleries.]

    The Best Live Heavy Metal Album Ever?

    There are bands known for their live prowess, such as Judas Priest or Slayer, and these bands have each made live albums at the height of their powers that have quite easily stood the test of time. However, Live After Death captures Iron Maiden at the very time when they were at the tip top of their game, and at the top of the heavy metal scene (at least until the breakout of Metallica a year or two later). The band sounds absolutely driven, with Bruce Dickinson especially whipping the crowd into a frenzy. This edition restores the five songs which originally comprised side four of the LP version, each recorded at the Hammersmith Odeon in London. There's also a generous multimedia section, a bit outdated by these days, but still interesting to wade through. What hasn't dimmed is the sheer ferocity of Maiden onstage. From the first note of "Aces High" to the last of "Phantom of the Opera", the band simply doesn't let up for ten seconds. For fans of Maiden, and metal in general, this is a must have snapshot of the genre as it existed pre-thrash. For the uninitiated, there is no better place to start than here.

    Good Live Maiden! Excellent Album!

    All the tracks are good live material. Some songs sound even better than before. Especially "The Phantom of the Opera", "Children of the Damned" and "Aces High".
