Iced Earth

Profile:
American heavy metal band formed in 1984 that combines influences from thrash metal, power metal, progressive metal, opera, speed metal, and new wave. The central figure of Iced Earth is rhythm guitarist and songwriter Jon Schaffer. Schaffer originally founded the band under the name Purgatory, but he was forced to change the name due to another group already using the name. He would rename the band Iced Earth as a tribute to a longtime friend who had died in a motorcycle accident.

Century Media will never sell Iced Earth and Demons and Wizards music due what Jon Schaffer did in Washington on Jan 6th 2021. Jon is in jail now and risks 20 years in Jail.

I started listening to Iced Earth in about 2002, when they allready had made history. I became more and more interested in Iced Earth. What's good about them; the lyrics are allways about something (battlefields, horror stories, tragedies) and their music is deep and well-worked out.
Later on I found out that Jon Shaffer IS Iced Earth, as the rest of the band members all have been submitted to change.
After five years of listening to the Iced Earth albums, oppertunity presented, Iced Earth was playing in the Netherlands. Allthough my friend who recommended me Iced Earth didn't want to go because of the Matthew Barlow - "Ripper" Owens exchange, I still went. And shame on him, because "The Ripper" is every bit as good as Barlow and even though their latest album wasn't the best Iced Earth album, "The Ripper" is a worthy successor! Looking forward to some new and harder material!
