Info for Live After Death (2015 Remaster)

Along with Kiss's ALIVE!, Ozzy Osbourne's TRIBUTE, and Thin Lizzy's LIVE AND DANGEROUS, Iron Maiden's 1985 double-disc set LIVE AFTER DEATH ranks among the greatest heavy metal live albums. Most of the performances were recorded during an unprecedented quartet of shows at the Long Beach Arena in Los Angeles, CA, while several other tracks are from an earlier run of gigs in London's Hammersmith Odeon.

Only Maiden's very best songs are included, and the performances are consistently inspired. Such popular favorites as 'Aces High,' '2 Minutes to Midnight,' 'The Trooper,' 'Flight of Icarus,' 'The Number of the Beast,' 'Run to the Hills,' 'Running Free,' and 'Wrathchild' are included. But as longtime fans know, Maiden has always been an album-oriented band, and many of the band's greatest tracks were not singles, as evidenced by such lesser-known items as the 13-minute epic 'Rime of the Ancient Mariner,' 'Powerslave,' 'Revelations,' '22 Acacia Avenue,' 'Children of the Damned,' and 'Phantom of the Opera.'

„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.“ (Greg Prato, AMG)

Iron Maiden
was formed in the year 1976 by bassist Steve Harris. They released their first album in 1980 as a five piece band with Paul Di’Anno on vocals. Later, Bruce Dickinson replaced him in 1981. With several line-up changes Steve Harris would remain the only original member never to have had a hiatus. When Bruce Dickinson quit in 1994 and was replaced by Wolfsbane’s Blaze Bayley, the band lost a lot of their fanbase. They recorded two albums with Blaze before Bruce Dickinson and Adrian Smith returned to the fold for 2000’s “Brave New World”, and 2003’s “Dance of Death”, making them a six-piece. As of 1999 the line-up hasn’t changed. Here’s the biography of this popular band.

Known for such powerful hits as “Two Minutes to Midnight” and “The Trooper,” Iron Maiden were and are one of the most influential bands of the heavy metal genre. The often-imitated band has existed for over nearly four decades, pumping out wild rock similar to Judas Priest. Iron Maiden have always been an underground attraction; although failing to ever obtain any real media attention in the U.S. (critics claimed them to be Satanists due to their dark musical themes and their use of grim mascot “Eddie”), they still became well-known throughout the world and have remained consistently popular throughout their career. Iron Maiden were one of the first groups to be classified as “British metal,” and, along with Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, and a host of other bands, set the rock scene for the ’80s.
