After playing to packed houses in 1999, the reformed and revamped Iron Maiden now satisfies their fans' hunger with a new collection of material. Vocalist Bruce Dickinson and guitarist Adrian Smith rejoin the fold, which is now a six member, three guitar sonic assault. Produced by Kevin Shirley (Aerosmith, The Black Crowes), BRAVE NEW WORLD is Maiden's finest album in 12 years.

"The Wicker Man" is a heavy, yet accessible tune with a memorable chorus propelled by Nicko McBrain's double bass drum thunder. "Blood Brothers" is a melancholy song featuring strings and lush arrangement, while the title track shows that Dickinson's pipes are in fine form; the man can belt out a song like no one else. "Dream of Mirrors" begins acoustically and builds to a mammoth, grandiose blockbuster. Master bassist Steve Harris also lends his keyboard prowess to the nine-minute epic, "The Nomad." Iron Maiden is proudly still waving the metal flag; there's no group more fitting to lead a heavy rock revival. An album of conviction, BRAVE NEW WORLD shows a band still at the top of its game.
