Hi-Res Video. Instead, the band has continued to add new material to their arsenal, fleshing out the nooks and crannies of past glories with expansive, prog-minded efforts like The Final Frontier and Book of Souls Clocking in at just over 80 minutes, the epic Senjutsu is another distended late-career triumph, albeit one that requires multiple spins to set up camp in your Homeric metal-craving cranium. Commencing with one of the band's best openers in years, the potent "Senjutsu," treats the prosaic cruelties of war with equal parts melancholy and might.
Apart from the nimble "Stratego," which bears the instantly familiar galloping gait of classic Maiden, the ten-song set leans hard into the band's progressive tendencies. Despite an overarching preference for midtempo pieces, Senjutsu never lumbers. The serpentine arrangements and sonic detours into everything from Spaghetti Western-inspired groove metal "The Writing on the Wall" and maximalist, major key art-rock "The Time Machine" to lilting folk-metal "Death of the Celts" show a flair for innovation that artists who've been in the game so long rarely aspire to.
The band is tight, the energy level high and the mixing of the instruments is very well done as Album). Perhaps my only complaint could be that the songs are so faithful to the album versions that only the audience sounds differentiates them for the most part but this was still a band in its humble beginnings. If you are into the Di'Anno years then this is an excellent testimony to their live shows of the day. I only wish this was a full album instead of just a sampler.
Perhaps the strains in the band meant there wasn't enough material to warrant such and that this is the cream of what was available. I have been a big fan of this short but sweet EP for some time and can only hope there is some archival tracks out there ready to be added as bonus tracks so that this can have a much deserved re-release. As for the EP itself, the band delivers a terrific performance, as usual, with specially energetic versions of Killers and Innocent Exile.
It seems his drinking and drug habits were beginning to take their toll. Small wonder he was fired after this tour. But it is still Iron Maiden, and Running Free - Iron Maiden - Iron Maiden (CD their singer was not sounding as good as he was in the studio, the sheer power of all band members and the high quality of the songs made this EP worth buying it at the time.

The remastered album differs from the original with the addition of the song "Sanctuary", which had then only been released as a single in the UK in MayTemplate:Sfn although it did also appear in the later US version of Iron Maidenwhich was issued in August Template:Sfn The re-release also features a different cover; a digital recreation by original Album) Derek Running Free - Iron Maiden - Iron Maiden (CDwith a portion of the original artwork instead being used on the disc itself.
The band undertook the Iron Maiden Tour in support of the album, during which they played their first ever concerts in mainland Europe, Template:Sfn where they were surprised to discover how successful Iron Maiden had been outside the UK, with Steve Harris commenting, "The prestige of doing so well in the UK had turned into a sort of word-of-mouth thing, and we'd turn up in places like Leiden, in Holland, places we'd never even heard of, and they'd have these massive banners waiting for us with "Iron Maiden Go Over The Top" written on them and all this.
It was unreal. The band also performed the song on the UK TV show Top of the Popsrefusing the usual tradition for artists to mime and thus becoming the first group to perform live on the show since The Who in Template:Sfn Vocalist Paul Di'Annowho wrote the song's lyrics, describes it as "a very autobiographical song, though of course I've never spent the night in an LA jail. It's about being 16 and, like it says, just running wild and running free.
It comes from my days as a skinhead. Although "Strange World" is credited solely to Harris, Paul Daythe band's original vocalist fromclaimed that he also contributed to the song. Of all the album's songs, "Phantom of the Opera", "Running Free", "Sanctuary" and "Iron Maiden" are the most frequently played in the band's concert tours, with the last being played at every show since the band's inception and signalling the arrival of Eddie onstage.
