About A Real Dead One

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 25 October 1993. This album features songs from the very beginning of the band's career (1975) through the Powerslave era (1984) (hence the title, referring to the songs being old), while counterpart A Real Live One only contains songs from the post-Powerslave albums. When Iron Maiden re-released all of their pre-X Factor 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 long-time Iron Maiden cover artist Derek Riggs, and depicts Eddie as a disc jockey in Hell. "Hallowed Be Thy Name" was released as a live single. On the Billboard charts, "Hallowed Be Thy Name" hit No. 50 on the Mainstream Rock chart.
