ICED EARTH LAUNCH NEW WEBSITE AND OFFICIAL FANCLUB
Iced Earth have launched a newly designed website featuring artwork showcased in the band’s forthcoming CD, “The Crucible of Man (Something Wicked Part II)” to be released worldwide this week via Steamhammer/SPV on the following dates:
Germany, Austria, Switzerland: September 5th
United Kingdom and Europe: September 8th
USA and Canada: September 9th
“The Crucible of Man” continues the band’s legacy of delivering their music complete with extravagantly illustrated packaging. No less than 16 full-color illustrations were created for “The Crucible of Man” to give listeners a glimpse into the mind of mainman Jon Schaffer as they follow along to the telling of his “Something Wicked” saga.
The newly designed website will also feature a professionally operated fanclub that fans can join and use to purchase officially licensed Iced Earth merchandise directly from the source, as well as partake in the only officially authorized Iced Earth forum, chat, blog, and contests with other “Minions of the Wicked.” Says Schaffer, “We are in store for a very exciting time in Iced Earth history, and I'm extremely proud of what's been accomplished thus far. Many of you have been with us since day one, and many have come along through the years. Regardless of how long you've been a fan of the music, we are honored to have you part of the ever-growing Legion of metal's most dedicated fan base. Rise up Minions of the Wicked!”
The Crucible Of Man (Something Wicked Part II) features the following tracklisting: 'In Sacred Flames', 'Behold The Wicked Child', 'Minions Of The Watch', 'The Revealing', 'A Gift Or A Curse', 'Crown Of The Fallen', 'The Dimensional Gauntlet', 'I Walk Alone', 'Harbinger Of Fate', 'Crucify The King', 'Sacrificial Kingdoms', 'Something Wicked (Part 3)', 'Divide And Devour', 'Come What May', 'Epilogue'.
