The Sakic Substantiation
Accomplishing a feat that will surely rank with the first successful navigation of the Northwest Passage and the initial experimental proof of the existence of the Higgs boson, Tom Sakic, acknowledged Cohen cognoscente, has uncovered published evidence that verifies the long-suspected Iron Maiden-Leonard Cohen Correlation.
While Cohen’s potential association with heavy metal has been previously inferred,1 definitive proof was lacking – until now.
The historic confirmation was in the form of the graphic (shown atop this post) juxtaposing the Canadian singer-songwriter and the pioneering British heavy metal band that appeared above an article published by AdriaEntertainment at Koncerti Iron Maidena I Leonarda Cohena Su Skoro Rasprodani! announcing that both the July 31, 2013 Iron Maiden concert at the Zagreb Arena and the August 2, 2013 Leonard Cohen show at Pula Arena are almost sold out.
This discovery triggers many questions but, as yet, few answers. For example,
- Will headbanging replace waltzing in the aisles at Cohen concerts?
- Will the Unified Heart symbol morph into something akin to Eddie The Head?
- Will the next Cohen album really be titled “Songs From A Room In Hell?”

- Earlier indications have included Leonard Cohen’s appearance of heavy metal-laden 1993 Rock At The Ring Festival, the fact that at least one heavy-metal band, Sisters of Mercy, takes its name from one of his songs, and a notorious blogger’s implication that Cohen “subbed for the lead singer of Megadeth during that group’s Argentina tour” based on the “ominous absence of any reports of Megadeth and Leonard Cohen being seen simultaneously during that time period” [↩]
