Not what I thought it would be...
- Iron Maiden: The Future Has Come to Pass review by MW
I very rarely write reviews but I'm a massive Maiden fan so I felt it important to write something about this title for anyone thinking of watching it.
Disc 1) The main feature is a documentary entitled 'The New Wave of British Heavy Metal' which is pretty interesting and does include material about Iron Maiden, but is not specifically about them. More so, it is a history of how early metal developed in the late 70s alongside punk, before gathering more commercial success with the help of the Soundhouse rock club. The best bits are the archive footage, gig photos and interviews with ex-band members. Bands such as ACDC, Praying Mantis, Def Leppard, Saxon and Diamond Head also feature.
Disc 2) The main feature is a 'documentary' about Iron Maiden that actually contains NO music from Iron Maiden and is not endorsed by the band. The music is awful. Many of the interviews are simply repeated from disc 1. I can only comment on the first 20 minutes, at which point I turned it off. It was that bad. AVOID.
