4 stars Another solid release from the 'new' Maiden, one which might actually be there heaviest yet. "Dance of Death" rumbles with a very raw and deep sound courtesy the rhythm section which lays down a dark backdrop to the three guitar's excellent riffing, all of which are recorded with a somewhat coarse quality. As a whole the songs are quite good, featuring songs mostly relating to Bruce's interest in history/war and giving the band plenty of chances to shine-- experimenting with composition and new ways to utilize their instrumentation. The listener can expect to hear plenty of smart solos and get their fists pumping to the melodies... and maybe even feel a few tingles from the really dramatic moments. All in all mandatory buy for Iron Maiden fans, but not quite as much as the previous and more interesting "Brave New World".
