Iced Earth

Putting Iced Earth into a drawer is practically impossible. Founded in Tampa in beautiful Florida, they simply play Metal according to the members. However, it's not so easy if you consider their albums. Between Pink Floyd and Slayer, anything can happen on them, as Iced Earth have shown since 1985. The band masters both Thrash and Power Metal, but also Progressive Metal. Albums like "Night Of The Stormrider" and "Burnt Offerings" or "Something Wicked This Way Comes" have become classics and definitely helped to make Iced Earth a cult band. Newer stuff such as "Framing Armageddon" and "The Crucible Of Man" isn't any worse. For "Dystopia", the last remaining founding member Jon Schaffer was even complimented as enthusiastically as for "The Dark Saga" back in the day. Feeding off this praise, the group immediately started to write songs for "Plagues Of Babylon", which turned out to be just as expressive as in the old days. Iced Earth go straight to the point without any compromises, which makes them an extremely important Metal band still today. Since we are aware of Iced Earth's status, we feature them in our EMP Shop. We have the Americans' merchandise and albums there.
