Heavy Metal bands come and Heavy Metal bands go, but if there’s one stalwart of the genre, a group who epitomise the form more than any other, it’s Iron Maiden. With well over 30 years in the game and still as popular and creative as they’ve ever been, Maiden are the kind of band that fans stick with because of their genuine commitment to those who pay their wages and buy their mansions, something other bands often neglect to consider.
This box set features two different documentary films on Iron Maiden, the first of which gives a general overview of the band from their dawn as a struggling pub act out of London’s East End, to their position today as global rock giants. The second film looks at their role in spearheading anddeveloping what came to be known as the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, a movement that moved Metal music into the modern age and without which many of today’s biggest rock attractions simply would not exist.
Both films include rare footage, exclusive interviews with Maiden members and those who know them best, contributions from the finest Rock journalists and broadcasters, news clips, location shoots and a host of other features.
‘Extras’ include extended interviews, interactive Maiden challenge, contributor biographies and more.
