The band first confirmed that they would be working on a follow-up to 's Brave New World with producer Kevin Shirley on 27 Novemberannounced alongside a small set of European tour dates for the following year. The band undertook the Dance of Death World Tour in support of the album, which included many theatrical elements inspired by the record's songs.

When man attempts to make man then it's a monster in a test tube. It was written by Adrian Smithwho usually contributes to the band's shorter, more commercial-sounding songs, but decided to write what he describes as "a traditional Maiden epic". Dickinson comments, "the beauty of 'Paschendale' isn't in the epic-ness of the song — although you have to admit it is a powerful and stirring body of music — but the detail.

Specifically what I was thinking was that whatever empires you tend to build — whether they are British, American, Iraqi or whatever, they'll all crumble and fade away into something else. So, to my mind at least, the best thing you can hope for, if you were to leave anything behind, is just an imprint in the Age Of Innocence - Iron Maiden - Dance Of Death (DVD.
The final track, "Journeyman", is Iron Maiden's first and only fully acoustic song. According to Dickinson on the Death on the Road live album, it is about "the whole process of writing and being a musician",  although Mick Wall describes it as "a wistful tale of carpe diem ". Reviews for the album were generally positive with Kerrang! Although criticising the album for its length and for not "matching the quality" of its predecessor, Brave New WorldPopMatters praised the band for being able to "still easily outclass most of the younger nu-metal bands today".
