Storyline

Tearing down the wall of segregation Iron Maiden: Behind the Iron Curtain is both concert footage and historical document conjoining Iron Maiden's journey into the closed world of the Communist Bloc and its' heavy-metal subculture out and proudly head-banging to tracks such as 2 Minutes to Midnight, The Trooper, The Number of the Beast and Aces High, amongst others. With a wonderful nostalgic and reflective feel of a world far removed from the present, with band interviews and fans' thoughts and reactions to this British heavy-metal band and the rebellious soundtrack to the phenomenon that is life behind the Iron Curtain.

When East was east
10 September 2004 | by tomo-soyaSee all my reviews

As a documentary, it still amazes us the days of East of Europe in early 80's. There weren't many so-called Bands which went to those places just for Fans. If you see it, you can find lots of fans desperately looking forward to see Maiden. So eagerly, only you can feel is so much love towards them; Both fans and Maiden.

How much Music can affect to people? Unless Maiden felt what it was as a mission, it would never be realized in that peaceful way.

Great live performances even one of the embryonic days because of their energetic passions which might be be seethed under those different circumstances.
