A Matter of Life and Death

Posted on 09/07/2006 in misc

Iron Maiden is back! The new album, A Matter of Life and Death, is 70 minutes of dark, crunchy prog metal goodness. It's an anti-war record, but not in the traditional dumb ass rock band "rah rah rah give peace a chance sense." Maiden has written a collection of songs in which they question the leaders that bring war on (without naming names or making it political), while at the same time glorifying those who actually go into battle. It's really quite brilliantly done, if you take the time to listen.
