Review by Sean Trane
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Folk
3 stars Could they have resisted long on this pun? It is a bit like Grateful Dead not issuing a Live Dead album!! Too hard to resist, right? On top of it this was a great wink at one of the best ever live album. So this EP will be the last thing Maiden issued with DiAnno as their frontman, and however short this EP is, it is a wild and fitting outro. DiAnno simply rips through Wrathchild so much better than the studio version and Running free is also a much better version. The great Remember Tomorrow is rather better in its original version, though. The last two tracks being roughly the same as their studio versions.

I never saw this EP stand on its own in digital format, but most likely, these tracks were released as bonus tracks on one of their early album's reissue. Crazyman Dianno was really a bit too much to handle: his behaviour was not just self-destructive but also affected the band's performance, so he was given his walking papers. Never got another real chance at it, but he was his own worst enemy. Bye Paul!!

2 stars Heavy Metal Army

The all-time IRON MAIDEN's favourite band is DEEP PURPLE, as guys confessed once. They learned a lot about dynamics, tempo and arranging by them, but they also learned what happens when band goes too far.

Of course, it was unavoidable to include at least some reference about DEEP PURPLE somewhere in band's long career, and they mad a brilliant pun in the title. Made in Japan, geddit?

Needless to say, this live EP is hardly comparable to legendary Purple's live record, but that was not the intention anyway. We have here five very good live tracks ("Running Free" and "Remember Tomorrow" from the debut and "Wrathchild", "Killers" and "Innocent Exile" from the second album). All the songs are, as I said, very good, but they are nothing special in Maiden's catalogue - or your personal collection - whether you are IRON MAIDEN fan or not. In my opinion, it deserves two and a half stars, but I won't round them to three - this live document is above average, but not excellent, and it's way too brief. The reason for the publishing of this brief record was, I think, insisting of Japanese fans to see 1981's performances from Nagoya and Tokyo. The band was reluctant to do so, but Maiden Japan EP (aka "Heavy Metal Army") was released at last.

All the performances are of high quality, and Paul is singing much more furious than on studio albums. "Wrathchild" is much more energetic (it sounds somewhat monotonous and recited on studio version, at least to my ears) and "Innocent Exile" is also worth mentioning. When I heard Paul's "eee-yo-wee-yo-yo-yo" chanting I had a strange feeling that I've heard it somewhere before, and indeed, you can hear the same thing in THE POLICE's "Walking On The Moon". Hah! The mighty 1981!

Anyway, this live EP is the last document of Paul DiAnno's singing in the band, and after this one, the band will abandon their occasional punkish (?) attitude.

I'm just regretting a missed opportunity to see the so-called "Venezuela version" of this EP, where Eddie is holding Paul's head on the front cover (the same will be done with Bruce's head on their farewell concert before Blaze took place). Awesome.

3 stars A live recording Maiden In Japan...

This EP was recorded in Nagoya in 1981. The band was apparently not very keen to release this but the marketing pressures decided differently. The whole recording of this concert is of course available but not as an official release (do grab that one instead of this short and very limited edtion).

Two songs from their debut album ("Running Free" and "Remember Tomorrow") balanced with three from their second one ("Wratchild", "Killers" and "Inocent Exile"). The whole being a pure explosion of course. But how could it be different?

"Maiden" was already super fast and exaggerately wild in the studio. No wonder that they were rather "bombing" while playing live, right? My fave is of of course "Killers". An absolute... killer as I have already mentioned in my review from the according album.

This reductive angle could hardly be a masterpiece but I would rate it with three stars for its historical aspects.

4 stars This album is some kind of testament of Iron Maiden's first era. Although we all agree that the real treat would begin with their next album, Mainden's first two efforts are really good, 4 stars in a heavy metal perspective. The original edition of maiden japan was an EP. It didn't leave enou ... (read more)
