A Matter Of Life And Death is the fourteenth studio album by British heavy metal band Iron Maiden, released in August 2006 by EMI Records.

A Matter Of Life And Death, picks up from the triumphant return of old school Iron Maiden’s Dance Of Death, and is reminiscent of the woefully underrated Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son, but with far less keyboard.

Recorded live in the studio, epics like "The Reincarnation Of Benjamin Breeg", "Brighter Than A Thousand Suns", and the brutal "Longest Day" - the whole record is a loosely-knit song cycle with war at its core - exhume prog rock complexity and discipline yet manage to bristle with the kind of small-club intensity usually reserved for acts half their age. The quality bar is raised once more. Iron Maiden prove yet again their uncanny ability to write great lyrics wrapped around guitar orchestration that fans crave.

"For The Greater Good Of God" and "The Longest Day" are outstanding with the partnership of guitar, bass and drum flowing and developing throughout. "Lord Of Light" is one of those epic tracks destined to be listened to again and again - each time giving something new.

A Matter Of Life And Death is the sound of a band who have been together for over thirty years, mostly spent on the road. The album manages to preserve the raw element of a live performance thanks to the live in studio approach. Every song provides evidence that the band feed off each other, and share a common energy.

In this world of hopeless auto-tuned mediocrity Iron Maiden is a band that consistently crafts fantastic music that surprises reviewers and fans alike. Some may dislike the controversial lyrics, but isn't that what rock music is supposed to be all about?

Check out the tracks: “The Reincarnation Of Benjamin Breeg” and “Different World”.

This 2017 reissued double LP housed in a gatefold sleeve with remastered audio is pressed in Europe on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl by Parlophone Records.
