About this album

A Real Dead One is a live album by the British heavy metal band Iron Maiden, recorded in 1992/93 at concerts across Europe, and released on October 25, 1993. This album features songs from the very beginning of the band’s career (1975) through the Powerslave era (1984), while counterpart A Real Live One only contains songs from the post-Powerslave albums.

When Iron Maiden re-released all their albums in 1998, this album was combined with A Real Live One to form the 2-disc A Real Live Dead One.

The album cover was made by longtime Iron Maiden cover artist Derek Riggs, and depicts Eddie as a disc jockey in Hell, playing old Maiden tunes.

“Hallowed Be Thy Name” was released as a live single. On the Billboard Music Charts, “Hallowed Be Thy Name” hit number 50 on the Mainstream Rock chart.

    Not very good... Performance is a little weak, but the worst part is the production... the crowd sound is just embarassing

    pretty impressive stuff, just unfortunate that it doesn't have any material from 'Killers' though

    This along with A Real Live One is their worst official live material.

    I find Bruce's voice to be quite weak on some of the songs. He even sounds better nowadays.

    I just LOVE this live album, I used to have it on audio cassette :) The band's performance is clearly amazing and believe me, the screaming crowds equally make this album worth listening. I think the production perfectly fits an Iron Maiden live release, it's somewhat raw and faithfully portrays that magic connection between Maiden and their audience
