maiden_live cover.jpgThis powerful live document by the ever-awesome Iron Maiden is a superbly mixed and nicely packaged offering with a set list that is brilliantly put together. As if the "Book of Souls" album was not stellar enough as it is, "Live Chapter" shows just how fantastic the songs off the aforementioned studio album come across in a live setting.
Frankly speaking, this is not really an essential release as such unless you are either a hardcore fan of Iron Maiden or one of the lucky two million fans fans who caught the band live somewhere on this particular 2016/2017 tour that this highly atmospheric release covers, but that does not mean that it is not excellent.
The pounding "Death or Glory" and the epic "Powerslave" are the true highlights of the album, but the thing about "Live Chapter" is that it proves (as if proof was needed?) that Harris and the others are still a force to be reckoned with. It is impossible not to be sucked into the wonderful sphere of Maiden while listening to this majestic release.
