Iron Maiden - Death On The Road (DVD)

Iron Maiden
Death On The Road - DVD

I had the chance to do the review for the audio CD of this release and now it's time to do a review for the DVD (as if there was any chance they wouldn't also release it on DVD) product. Regarding the business side of Iron Maiden, I will not repeat myself, you can read my opinion on this matter in the review I did for the audio CD.
Now, concerning the DVD. All of us know that Iron Maiden are one kick-ass act on stage. They even manage to make the songs from their latest albums (after Fear Of The Dark Era) sound more powerful than they do on CD (in my opinion always). So even the weakest moments of this beloved band sound explosive on stage. This DVD was filmed during the band's Dance Of Death Tour back in 2003. The production of this tour was indeed one of the most expensive Maiden ever had throughout their entire career (and the older readers will recall that Maiden did have some REALLY huge budget tours in the past - World Slavery Tour, Seveth Tour etc). Unfortunately for me the setlist is based on the band's latest releases that don't mean a lot to me. Still some really cool moments (apart from when the band delivers the classics) do exist: Rainmaker, Brave New World etc. Iron Maiden on stage simply rule so there is no point in discussing about the band's performance that is simply top notch.
Some technical details. The package include three DVDs. The first two DVDs include the live show. One is in Stereo format, the other in Dolby Digital 5.1. The third DVD includes lots of goodies: a 75 minutes long documentary about the band on the road, interviews, the videos of Wildest Dreams and Rainmaker with design sketches, photos and artwork galleries and lots more.
In conclusion this one is a full packed DVD that makes itself essential to the majority of Iron Maiden fans. What more can I say?
