  • The first half of this song is horrible... the second half is awesome.
  • Would you mind reciting your poem for us?
  • Blaze > Bruce
  • I had forgotten about this track. I remember it was included on my Best of the Beast CD which I lost years ago. One of the best Blaze era songs.
  • Godspeed You Black Emperor!'s Blaise Bailey Finnegan III led me here. Have been a big Maiden fan for years but had no idea that GYBE! used this song.
  • Second best blaze song. The first is Sign of the cross
  • Masterpiece. Blaze rocks!
  • CARALHO CARA COMO EU AMO ESSA MUSICA COMO EU AMO ESSA BANDA PQP VAI SI FUDE
  • oh I haven´t heard this song for years...this is pure awesomeness.I love this song. [2]
