Back in the day, when this place was crawling with forums and chats about random acts of music, we used to poll ourselves to see which release by an artist not only set them atop of the industry but stapled them in as musical gods.

Iron Maiden charged into 2012 with two major news announcements.  Firstly, March 26 saw the release of a live BLU-RAY, 2DVD and double CD soundtrack: En Vivo!  Filmed during their 2010/11 Final Frontier World Tour, En Vivo! captures the show at the Estadio Nacional, Santiago in front of  50,000 Chilean fans.  Alongside the live show, there is a bonus disc featuring an 88-minute documentary  Behind The Beast giving a behind-the-scenes look at exactly what is involved in putting on an IRON MAIDEN concert.  Secondly, in June, the MAIDEN ENGLAND WORLD TOUR gets underway. This highly anticipated tour is the next chapter in the History Of Iron Maiden and will closely follow 1988’s Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son Tour not only in choice of set list but also in production and content. The 2012 dates, with Coheed & Cambria opening,  will be the opening leg of this World tour and will be the band’s most extensive visit to North America in many years. The band show no signs of slowing down or losing the formidable passion that has seen them triumphant at the forefront of Metal for three decades.

32 years on, and with over 80 million album sales, more than 2000 live performances, countless satisfied fans and 15 studio albums of unerring quality and power to their name, Iron Maiden have more than earned their proudly-held status as one of the most influential and revered bands ever.

So this begs the question…which of their records is their best? Tell us your favorite and why by voting and commenting.

    It’s always been a close call for me, but Powerslave is my favorite. They just had so many outstanding records during those years, it’s hard to narrow it down and you feel like you’re doing 5 or 6 other albums an injustice.
