    Black Sabbath

    I really really need to get into this band.  Esp. the Dio era.

    Okay, so I'm using StumbleUpon, since I'm trying to kill time before I leave for Austria (yay!), and I come across this website, which is obviously a trailer for a film.  For reasons I've never been able to discover, Mozilla (mine, at least) really doesn't like Apple, so I can't play the...

    The Point, Dublin 20/12/06

    Well, thought I might as well get this up to pre-empt mine, Hunny's and Conor's reactions to the gig later on today. I will report back on Thursday, but for now I leave you with a resounding MAIDEN!!!!!

    Harald Schimdt on metal

    I came across this video on YouTube the other day and wondered if anyone could translate the general gist of the interview for me.  I believe that some viewer wrote in (possibly to correct some comment Schimdt may have said earlier) about metal sounding the same, so Schmidt decides to get some...

    Potential IMC image change?

    In light of the recent make-over of the Maidenfans main page (thus revealing that some things do change around here!), I had a rather cool (to my mind) idea. Instead of having the image of Eddie bursting out of the computer looking at us when we enter the IMC, why not have a montage of Eddies...

    Nicko's gongs

    You got all excited when you clicked on this, didn't you? Perverts. :lol: Anyway, although this topic is already veering in the direction of madness, I have a serious question (two, in fact!) to ask of you. 1. After watching the AMoLaD Bonus DVD, where Nicko mentions that his beloved gong is...

    'Making of...' new album online

    A documentary about the processes of writing, rehearsing, recording and mixing the new album, 'A Matter of Life and Death', can now be viewed on Maiden's site at this location. I loved this really gave an insight into the crafting of AMoLaD, moreso than Kevin's diaries.  I...

    Favourite song with out-takes at beginning/end

    As you can see, I, too (as well as SMX) have slightly too much time on my hands. ^_^ To qualify for this poll, the song must have an extract at either the beginning or end, which is spoken by the band members.  So for example, Still Life has Nicko's backwards speech at the beginning, and him...

    French Presentation

    I'd like the opinions of any of the French-literate posters here. For my French GCSE Oral, I have to prepare a speech on a topic of my choice, to say from memory with my French Speaking Test. It's not in front of the class, just my teacher and a microphone (it has to be recorded to be sent to...
