"...it's not the training to be mean but the training to be kind that is used to keep us leashed best." ~ Black Dog Red

"In case you haven't recognized the trend: it proceeds action, dissent, speech." ~ davidly, on how wars get done

"...What sort of meager, unerotic existence must a man live to find himself moved to such ecstatic heights by the mundane sniping of a congressional budget fight. The fate of human existence does not hang in the balance. The gods are not arrayed on either side. Poseiden, earth-shaker, has regrettably set his sights on the poor fishermen of northern Japan and not on Washington, D.C. where his ire might do some good--I can think of no better spot for a little wetland reclamation project, if you know what I mean. The fight is neither revolution nor apocalypse; it is hardly even a fight. A lot of apparatchiks are moving a lot of phony numbers with more zeros than a century of soccer scores around, weaving a brittle chrysalis around a gross worm that, some time hence, will emerge, untransformed, still a worm." ~ IOZ

Not available in "my country"
Would it be silly to assume this is Maiden, Iron?

Is, yes.

Hah! One of my video game diversions is a skiing game called SSX and the load-up/opening music is the very same song. I'd never heard the song before I got that game, didn't ever get into Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, etc.

Although I kinda knew of Judas Priest from their cover of Green Manalishi, which isn't too bad.

I've never heard Iron Maiden on the radi-adi-o. Maiden fandom was pretty much the result of word-of-mouth- teenage folk culture, if you will.
