Overture of the Wicked
SPV
2007
Ahhhh, good ole Jon Schaffer sure knows how to rile folks. His political viewpoints have seemingly alienated half the globe while this EP has upset many fans of the band. For those not in the know, this record contains one new track and three songs from 1998's "Something Wicked This Way Comes" re-recorded with new vocalist Ripper Owens - and...

Iced Earth's latest opus has been out for awhile now, so the fans already have their copy and the haters have already damned its contents to eternal blazes, so that leaves only the fence-sitters who this review may be of service to. If you're sitting there wondering if it's as good as some say or as weak as others claim,...

Although I'm definitely a fan of the group, I don't know the...

The Reckoning
SPV
2003
Since I don't have the full version yet (it's in the mail), I figured I might as well review the EP from Iced Earth. Of course, the big hoopla regarding the latest material from Jon Schaffer is the loss of long time vocalist Matt Barlow and the addition of ex-Judas Priest singer Tim "Ripper" Owens. I got onboard the Iced...

Iced Earth, "Horror Show" Iced Earth
Horror Show
Century Media
2001
I walked into this disc ready to hate it and walked out seriously impressed. Expecting more power metal nonsense, I was instead greeted with an album that overcame the silliness of its topic with rock solid musicianship, inventive ensemble composition and powerful vocals. All the songs are based on horror - mostly horror movie monsters - with each song tackling a...
