The labeling of IM as Satanic was so stupid. Rime Of The Ancient Mariner ends with these lyrics..."That we must love, all things that God made", right
in the years when the Satanic hype was at it's highest and that was years before they did For The Greater Good Of God.
You wanna say Deicide are Satanists, go ahead. Lay off the Irons, dammit. So funny that it was only Dee Snider, Frank Zappa and John bleeding Denver
who showed up to tell the government they were full of it with the PMRC crap back then. Of course, it failed and they got their damned stickers.
Frankly, those stickers actually make me want to buy an album, not deter me so I guess those frakkers failed in that respect.
When this civilization dies and gets dug up thousands of years from now they will find all kinds of Eddie's, all over the world and will probably
deduce that this was a major religion. Religion, sure, I'd go with that, but not like those future archaeologists will think. Biggest band in the
whole bloody world, I'd say, and I'd be right. Who else owns their own jet and has their singer fly them around the world?
Oh, my introduction to the band. A little funny. I was at King's Island, Cincinnati in summer '82, right before I wen't into high school. Saw all
these weird shirts with this creepy looking dude on them. knew it was a rock band but Iron Maiden? What does that even mean? And what's with the
creepy looking dude?
Got back home to Vegas and saw Run To The Hills video on EmptyV and well, the rest is history. Saw the Powerslave show(they didn't do Piece Of Mind
here), my first IM show and there really was no going back.
