None of that nu-metal here, just good old heavy metal. This has got to be one of the greatest albums of all time, by one of the most powerful metal bands of all time. All of the songs are amazing and there are over 3 hours of them, so you don't half get your money's worth for it. The album basically summarises Iced Earth from the first albums Iced Earth and Night of the Stormrider right up to Something Wicked This Way comes, it combines their most powerful thrash tracks like Disciples of the Lie with their ballads like I Died For You flawlessly. Picking a favourite from 31 amazing tracks is very hard but I personally think that Pure Evil tops the group. That is not to say that any of the others are even remotely bad, and it may just be that it is newer than the rest (I still don't own Night of the Stormrider). I think the inclusion of Dante's Inferno, a 16.5 minute long epic, and Iced Earth make the album a lot more complete, but my one problem with the album is that they did not include the song Burnt Offerings which is one of my favourites. So if you like metal, if you are a fan of Maiden in particular, BUY THIS ALBUM NOW, YOU WON'T REGRET IT.
