Oh my. A new clip from Iron Maiden is out in the open, and we didn’t see it coming. The RMR deck crew is eagerly awaiting that new full-length record.

In this light, any new track that surfaces is an indicator of new delights heading our way, right?

So, The Writing on the Wall arrives out of the left-field after some six years of radio silence. And it comes in the form … [...] Click to raid more!
