This is a moment of Rock history. There are very few live albums/dvds that capture the essence of a band. Usually, having followed a bands repertoire on CD, one feels disappointed and disillusioned by their performance on stage. Not so with Maiden. This DVD captures both the energy and spirit of the leaders of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (a musical phenomenon, ignored by the mainstream bohemians, that revolutionised the musical style and content of Metal). At the time of its release on VHS, some fans were critical of the spectacular stage set that Maiden displayed to the Yanks, accusing them of selling out. But, My God, what a set! Not only does the musicianship blow you away but the sight of the special effects, coupled with the Irons interactions with the audience, draws you into the concert as no other could. Usually, when one watches a concert, one tends to look away occasionaly, answer a phone, take a leak, scratch one's balls. But this film hooks you from the start. Bruce has never sounded better, Steve smashes away at the bass with a vengeance, Dave and Adrian seduce their guitars into the finest riffs you will ever hear in a concert and Nicko pounds the skins with such precision and force it seems they may shatter under the wieght of the beat. And, most important, it is more than obvious that the boys are having fun. The shows special effects are the most spectacular I have ever seen (and I saw the original VHS release years ago). This DVD is not only a fantastic record of the Irons at their best, nor is it only a record of that long gone era of the NWOBHM. It is the ultimate in Heavy Metal. Long Live Eddie the Head!
