Heavy metal legends Iron Maiden have announced that they will be releasing a new “best of” collection. The album will be called “From Fear To Eternity The Best Of 1990-2010” and it will definitely live up to it’s name. How do I know this? Well, I know this because there are NO BLAZE ERA SONGS! NONE. NADDA. ZIP! That’s right. Even ‘arry himself recognizes that Blaze era Iron Maiden did nothing but supply the fans with scaled down, uninspired tours and a set of really nice coasters to keep the water rings off their coffee tables. Matter of fact, there are three Blaze era tunes but dig this. THEY ARE LIVE VERSIONS SUNG BY BRUCE! LULZ!!11 I’m sure Blaze is sitting in the bathroom of the pub he’s about to perform in screaming his lungs out.

The track listing is a great representation of the later years Maiden and pulls some of my favorite songs from these albums. I’ll even pick this one up just to be a completest. I think this would be a great collection for the casual Iron Maiden fan who knows nothing more than the classics. The tracklist for the album is as follows:
