You can pre order new record Incorruptible HERE and we highly suggest you do if you’re a fan of classic, huge metal. The band really put a lot into this album, even perhaps more than usual.

Iced Earth reveal cover art for new record

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, April 10, 2017 at 11:02 AM (PST)

Iced Earth have revealed the artwork to next record Incorruptible, a fitting title for a band who refuse to be anything less than metal to the grave. Dystopia by Iced Earth shoulda won a Grammy and pretty sure they had that album name first Mega Dave. Anyway, this one follows the also excellent Plagues Of Babylon and is going to be the great Stu Block’s third proper record with the band, so we are thrilled for the dudes that it continues to pan out.

From the band’s official Facebook:

Surprise everyone!! Iced Earth doesn’t follow the rules, they told us tomorrow, we said let’s give it to the fans now!!
Here is the new cover art for “Incorruptible” – OUT JUNE 16th WORLDWIDE !!
Pre order info and various formats released here on Monday !!

Deep Cuts : Iced Earth

Posted by Andrew Johann Datoush on Saturday, January 30, 2016 at 12:47 PM (PST)

The funny thing about metal music is that we have extremely passionate fans. You typically don’t get our type of fans with other genres. I’ve never heard of anyone coming out of a concert hall yelling “,I got so fucked up in the pit tonight! Best CELINE DION show ever!!!” (Morgan’s note: “I would.”)

That being said, while most metal bands have these rabid fans, there are certain bands who seem to have an even more passionate type of fan. Bands like IRON MAIDEN, MANOWAR, and even ICED EARTH have these fans. Fans who love absolutely everything the band puts out. Fans who, when asked, cannot tell you a single song they don’t like, but can rattle off 200 song titles when you ask them for their top favorite song. They have the logos, lyrics, and album covers tattooed on their bodies. They are like Juggalos, except they’re actually human, and you don’t necessarily have to cross the street when you see them walking towards you.

When I was asked to do a Deep Cuts on ICED EARTH, I felt two giant waves hit me. The first was “Well, this is awesome! I don’t get to talk about ICED EARTH enough.” The second wave that hit me was more like a “well, I pretty much love everything they’ve put out, as do their fans. What the fuck am I gonna write about”? After much consideration, writing, editing, rewriting, and reconsidering, I decided to just say screw it and write about my top favorite ICED EARTH songs, regardless if they were the band’s big hits or if they went under the radar. It seemed like the obvious choice.

More below.

Iced Earth begin mixing new album “Plagues of Babylon”

Posted by GageT on Friday, August 16, 2013 at 8:20 AM (PST)

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.
