Off the topic of magick, here’s something that’s been a lifelong relationship for me. Iron Maiden.

I first found their music at a buddies house and a friends older brother left all his tapes there. So we started listening to Iron Maiden. I think it was Killers and Maiden Japan? Anyways, I’m probably misremembering because that would have been in the late 80s. But I became enthralled.

Since that night they’ve been the top band I listen to. I’ve owned all their albums that weren’t hard to find and a few that were, and multiple copies of the earlier ones when the time came to switch from tapes to CDs. One day I’ll probably get a record player and start collecting those for my final library of music.

I’m awaiting their newest album. I’m in the middle of the boonies so most of my stuff is bought online. There’s a very droll culture in my neck of the woods so as much as I have an aversion to mainstream social media, I sure do like online retail- it’s a global market.

My favourite albums are cliche but Seventh Son, Somewhere in Time in the top spots with Piece of Mind in second place.

If you have good headphones there’s a whole different listening experience than a simple stereo setup used to be.

Up the Irons 🤘😎🤘

Hey! What a coincidence.. I’m currently at work, listening to Iron Maiden - Bring your daughter on the radio!

I’ve never really listened to rock, but it’s beginning to gain my attention!

The songwriting is great. Highly philosophical, esoteric, many songs are based on famous literature and history.

Alexander the Great, Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner, Brave New World to name a few.

These days I enjoy music at low volume from clear full sound speakers.

Empire of the Clouds is a notably fantastic story of a blimp that failed to complete its voyage

Iron Maiden is the greatest band Ive seen, and Ive seen three of their concerts, one ending in me alone for a few moments chanting 6-6-6, until others joined in and they came out playing for the finale Number of the Beast. :)

Ive followed them since Piece of Mind, and love even the first album, even without Bruce as the lead singer, and think they went thriough a drummer as well.
All of their stuff roicks. I think its safe to say that we can compare them to a heavy metal edition of the Rolling Stones.

Their songwriting is so deep and makes you wonder what they’re up to on their days off.


Today is born the seventh one
Born of woman the seventh son
And he in turn of a seventh son
He has the power to heal
He has the gift of second sight
He is the chosen one
So it shall be written
And so it shall be done

I mean, how can a practitioner of magick not see how awesomely written these songs are?
