Hello brothers and sisters,
I’m proud to announce that we have completed all the tracking for the new album, “Plagues of Babylon”.
There’s quite a selection of epic heaviness on your way, for release early next year.
On a completely different note, Jon became involved in the Silver Circle Movie and Pasha and the good people at SILVER CIRCLE have put together a very cool video for SPIRIT OF THE TIMES from Jon's project
Since Dystopia was released in October of 2011, ICED EARTH has been on the attack in a big way, playing more shows in the past year than in the previous ten years...combined!
ICED EARTH main man Jon Schaffer: “I feel this is a testament to a new beginning, a new energy and a rock solid determination that will see us taking the music of ICED EARTH to every corner of the globe; spreading the awareness of our brand of metal in a way that hasn’t been done before. I’ve never been more proud of this band, our crew, and the people behind the scenes that are responsible for much of our success.”
I just wanted give you a quick update:
We are locked and loaded and ready to roll out for the final leg of the Dystopia World Tour.
The "Live In Ancient Kourion"-DVD will be released in early April, so I thought I would share the artwork with you.
Nathan Perry and Felipe Machado Franco teamed up once again to bring you this kick-ass image.
There is a lot of good things coming your way next year so stay tuned for updates.
