I think this interview with Bruce pretty much sums this topic up.
Well, I don't think that life itself is an illusion, but I think that the way the majority of people look at their lives is an illusion. I mean, they have the illusion that the life they live was meant for them. In fact, they don't look far enough and their original plans are warped by the illusion they have of their own lives.
So many things happen on this earth, and so many people miss them because they are blinded by illusions.
Do you think that music can be an eye-opener on the possibilities life offers and that are ignored?
Maybe, yes. Music can cause a shock inside you and incite you to look beyond your traditional universe. In Iron Maiden, the context and the way our minds work are so present that they can only be expressed through violent music.
Our lyrics are also very importants and the spirituality we'd like to get across are in par with the aggression of our music, because aggression pushes always further the boundaries of understanding, and therefore the intellectual effort, and therefore the opening of the mind.
Take' Revelations', for instance, on the last album.
This is of interest, I am in Southern New Jersey and definitely sounds worth the ride up.
I am all for it.
Anyone else interested in hangin around the woods in NJ or drinking / "causing a scene" can PM me and network with a few other people as well
I am all for it.
