Iron Maiden's 'From Fear to Eternity: The Best of 1990-2010’ Out June 7

UMe has announced the release of From Fear To Eternity: The Best Of 1990-2010, a double-CD set spanning 20 years. This collection follows the success of 2010’s The Final Frontier, which hit No. 1 in 28 countries. It also became the band’s highest-charting album in the U.S., where Iron Maiden have been awarded their first Grammy for Best Metal Performance for the song “El Dorado,” taken from The Final Frontier, and which is included in this selection.

A special two-song, promo-only CD single is being made available featuring “The Wicker Man,” which originally appeared on Brave New World released in 2000 and was a Top 10 hit, and “The Reincarnation Of Benjamin Breeg,” which was the lead track from 2006’s A Matter Of Life And Death.

From Fear To Eternity: The Best Of 1990-2010 charts the development of Britain’s most successful metal band as they have evolved their sound, producing longer, more complex songs, gaining huge critical acclaim in the process. Featuring many of the epics for which the band has become renowned, it is accordingly released as a double-CD, but will retail for the price of a single album.

From Fear To Eternity: The Best Of 1990-2010 will also be released as a digital-download album and as a Limited Edition triple-vinyl picture disc set.

Perennial favorites found on this album include songs also featured in Maiden’s current “The Final Frontier World Tour” set list; tracks such as “Fear Of The Dark,” “Blood Brothers” and “Dance Of Death” sit alongside “El Dorado” and “When The Wild Wind Blows.” It also includes singles like “Holy Smoke” and “Be Quick Or Be Dead” together with more progressive thought-provoking album tracks like “Afraid To Shoot Strangers” and “For The Greater Good Of God.”
