Iced_Earth_2012Power metallers Iced Earth have begun mixing on their new record Plagues of Babylon, set for a January 2014 release via Century Media.

In an interview with Metal4 magazine at Rockharz festival in Germany, frontman Jon Schaffer said about the record: “It’s a bit of a different thing for us, because it’s half of a concept and the other half [isn't]. Musically, I think it’s just another step in the right direction. It’s really heavy, it’s very melodic. It has a really epic feeling. Even though there isn’t, like, a monster, long epic track, the overall feel of the songs is very epic. I mean, there’s no ’Dante’s Inferno’ or ’Gettysburg’ or the ’Something Wicked’ trilogy or something like that on here, but I’m really happy with it.
