Classic Iced Earth 🌏

Wow amazing new songs if the rest of album is like this it could be their best 🤘🤘🤘🤘


Wasn't expecting this!

When I first heard Iced Earth were releasing a new album, I was skeptical. Plagues of Babylon wasn't that impressive and seemed to be fueled by the fumes of its predecessor, Dystopia.
However, Incorruptible proved to be it's own terrific work of music. It wasn't a 3quel to Dystopia, nor does it appear to be a concept album at all. The only real comparison to Dystopia is that there isn't really a bad song in the bunch.
They just strapped some tasty riffs with some killer vocals; mixed with thunderous drums and creative guitar solos all wrapped up nice and pretty like a gift on Christmas morning. Black flag; Irish, Clear the way; and many more to look into.
This may be album of the year if nothing else comes along, great job Iced Earth!



17 year long fan and this album is horrible. Iced earth is just not iced earth anymore.

About Iced Earth

Fashion trends may come and go, but Florida's Iced Earth has remained steadfastly committed to championing the cause of heavy metal through thick and thin. After years of laboring in obscurity and undergoing countless lineup changes, they have slowly emerged as one of the greatest hopes for classic metal in America.

Originally formed as Purgatory by guitarist Jon Schaffer in 1985, the band spent five years in a constant state of flux while paying their dues on the Florida live circuit. They slowly honed their sound by combining '80s thrash influences with the classic metal approach of Iron Maiden. Their 1988 Enter the Realm demo was an underground favorite, and after changing their name to Iced Earth, the band recorded their eponymous 1990 album with a lineup consisting of guitarists Schaffer and Randall Shawver, singer Gene Adams, bassist Dave Abell, and drummer Mike McGill.

Further personnel changes saw the arrival of singer John Greely and drummer Richey Secchiari for 1991's Night of the Stormrider, an ambitious concept album which nevertheless fell on deaf ears. Disheartened, Greely decided to call it quits, but Iced Earth would re-emerge three years later with 1995's Burnt Offerings, released on Century Media Records, and featuring vocalist Matthew Barlow and drummer Rodney Beasley. Constant touring saw Barlow prove himself as the band's first reliable singer, and the band hit their stride with the following year's The Dark Saga. Despite the arrival of a new rhythm section (bassist Keith Menser and drummer Mark Prator), the album showcased the ever-improving consistency and quality of Schaffer and Shawver's songwriting, as well as excellent cover artwork from Spawn comic book creator Todd MacFarlane.

So happy was the band with their current lineup that they returned to the studio in 1997 to re-record the best of their early material with Barlow on vocals, resulting in the appropriately titled Days of Purgatory collection. Schaffer also decided to relocate Iced Earth to Indiana for "strategic reasons," prompting the departure of longtime cohort Shawver before the first sessions of 1998's Something Wicked This Way Comes. The album repeated the successful formula of its predecessors, and with new guitarist Larry Tarnowski and new bassist James MacDonough in tow, the band embarked on their most ambitious American and world tour yet. Their performances in Greece (one of the band's largest markets) yielded the double album Alive in Athens, released in 1999. Horror Show appeared in summer 2001. They issued the covers album Tribute to the Gods in 2002. After endless touring and the departure of Barlow, former Judas Priest vocalist Tim "Ripper" Owens took over the lead vocal chair. The band released their sprawling, double-disc concept recording Glorious Burden in 2004 to glowing reviews. In 2007, Iced Earth released two recordings, Framing Armageddon: Something Wicked, Pt. 1, and The Overture of the Wicked EP. Following suit in 2008, they released Crucible of Man: Something Wicked, Pt. 2, and the EP, I Walk Among You, followed by a world tour. In 2010, the SPV/Steamhammer imprint released the five disc Box of the Wicked, which contained both parts of Something Wicked, and the accompanying two EPS all on separate discs. The fifth disc contained all bonus material: a re-recorded version of "A Charge to Keep" and live versions of "Dark Saga," "Iced Earth," and "Pure Evil." ~ Eduardo Rivadavia
