Uniformly distributed hostility
TBOS leaked and as far as I recall so did TFF
If you make a sticiked thread with strict rule saying that anything claiming to be a leak is not allowed to be posted no matter what, then what you describe here won't be posted by members. And why should we be worried about what other punks elsewhere post as long as it's kept off of this forum. Making the rule will prevent that.
Like I said only tone deaf people could mistake any of the 'supposed' leaks thoughout the years for Iron Maiden. If the real thing leaks, you expect it to explode at once.
Ya, I totally get it now. And I had another thought. These fake leaks show disrespect to the original creators of the music and that's not good either so it's nice to see efforts to stop them.Yeah no Travis, if my experience as a moderator on this board has taught me anything, it's that people won't stop doing something just because you tell them to stop or because you have a rule about it.
We have strict no-leak rules and we've always had them. People still spammed the board with Attick Demons videos in the lead-up to TBOS.
I'm trying to go with a more positive approach this time around by exposing fake leaks for what they are and helping other members to spot this. If you have a quick reference for what these "leaks" are, maybe one person or another will find it before they post it here or maybe someone will already have pointed it out to the poster before the mods finish catching up with the recent 100 pages in the Senjutsu thread that were posted while they were asleep.

Another question. What if a legitimate, official store puts the album up for sale early even though they're not supposed?
Another question. What if a legitimate, official store puts the album up for sale early even though they're not supposed? I believe a store in France started selling Metallica's Death Magnetic early and about a month before Queensryche's Condition Human came out, it all of a sudden went up for sale on Amazon as a digital download which was stopped shortly after. If anything like that happens, can it be mentioned so others on here can try to get a copy? Even though a place put it up for sale early, you are still legally paying for it from an official place. Or is that showing disrespect towards Maiden who would like their fans to get copies on the official release date?
And I'd imagine people who receive promotional copies aren't thinking to even do that.Watermarks can be stripped through an analog gap. However to engage such an operation you're also a felon, as opposed to just being fired and maybe declared as persona non grata in the industry circle.
As is to be expected, people are already starting to collect random power metal songs and trying to pass them off as leaks from Senjutsu. This thread is to collect any such supposed leaks and identify the sources in order to prevent them from spreading any further.
A YouTube channel called "Iron Maiden" (with 55 subscribers, really nice try!) posted two songs (edit: now three) from a newly released album by a Brazilian band called Icon of Sin under the guise of Senjutsu:
Please post any further supposed "leaks" you come across and we can try to identify them.
