    Hmmm... hostility from the pablum brigade... your mewlings bring a grin to an old headbanger...

    Iron Maiden Head to Head X

    I must really dislike a song for Back in the Village to come out on top....

    Bible of the Devil

    I like both tunes, but the first one really kicks ass. Never heard of these guys either, but I'm going to check out some more...

    Yeah, it doesn't apply in my case either. Late 40's has brought a contentment and an ease of life that didn't exist in my teens and 20's. I'm a happier old dude than I was a kid...

    And again. And again. Really James, this album is the epitome of classic Rush... you'll soon love it.

    Official Hockey discussion thread

    Pittsburgh is a frightningly good team. They'll be the ones to really watch in the East. I'll pull for the Canucks in the West, but I think they'll have a tough go of it...

    Yeah, it's weird. Just finished watching the Jets lose to the Rangers. Things are bleak here in Winnipeg... had my hopes up for awhile...

    World Cup of Maidenfans semi-final: Led Zeppelin versus Back Sabbath

    World Cup of Maidenfans semi-final: Led Zeppelin versus Back Sabbath

    It's actually an automatic win in this case. I get to vent at those who have sullied Zep's honour, and have been able to create some heated discussion. I like stirring the shit pot... and yes Foro, it is religious zeal... and Maiden, Zeppelin and Rush are the deities. Besmirch any of them, in...

    World Cup of Maidenfans semi-final: Led Zeppelin versus Back Sabbath

    Interesting, Forostar. As a proponent of the growling death metal vocal style, your description of Robert Plant's vocals as annoying is ludicrous. After having subjected myself to that sub - sub - genre in an actual attempt to understand what it's appeal is, I can only conclude that: 1. The...
