Fear of the Dark is the ninth studio album released by English heavy metal band Iron Maiden. Released on 11 May 1992, it was their third studio release to top the UK albums chart and the last to feature Bruce Dickinson as the group's lead vocalist until his return in 1999. It was also the first album to be produced by bassist and band founder Steve Harris, and the last to feature the work of producer Martin Birch (who retired after its release).
From Fear to Eternity: The Best of 1990–2010 is a compilation album by British heavy metal band Iron Maiden, containing a selection of songs originally released on the eight studio albums from No Prayer for the Dying to The Final Frontier. The title is lifted from the 1992 single, "From Here to Eternity", although it is not featured in this release. The album was announced on 15 March 2011, to be released by EMI on 23 May, although this was later changed to 6 June.
Iron Maiden art veteran Melvyn Grant did this cover with plenty of call backs to the albums covered by the compilation:,The central Eddie is dressed as the Grim Reaper, like in Dance of Death.

Fear of the Dark- This is the classic that people always praise this album for, the title track. The guitars on here are very epic! In terms of feel, this song is similar to track 3, but this one is done in a very different way and isn't that similar. Iron Maiden never disappoints. It is a great CD. Don't know how I missed getting this CD before this, but I'm enjoying it immensely now! Published 6 months ago.
While Maiden records of the past would contain an album's worth of first-rate material, Fear of the Dark is again weighed down with too many drab compositions - "Childhood's End," "Chains of Misery," "Judas Be My Guide," and more. The serene "Wasting Love" proves to be one of Maiden's better ballads of the '90s, while the rockers "Fear Is the Key" and "Afraid to Shoot Strangers" are also standouts.
