The year 2013 is turning out to be a very productive one for Iced Earth. The band recently released their first official DVD/Blu-Ray, 'Live in Ancient Kourion,' and now they've unveiled that things are moving along on their upcoming studio album.
According to various news sources, Century Media Records have filed a lawsuit against more than 7,000 music fans for illegally downloading Lacuna Coil's 'Dark Adrenaline' and Iced Earth's 'Dystopia.' Since news of the lawsuit broke, discussion of the legal action has been rampant over the internet, with Iced Earth guitarist Jon Schaffer sharing his personal views in a new statement.
Iced Earth guitarist Jon Schaffer has a distinct and very metal look. When a fan pictures Schaffer, they see a black shirt or tank top, a denim or leather vest, a bandana and an angry metal face. In a hilarious doppleganger moment, Volbeat frontman Michael Poulsen joined Iced Earth onstage dressed exactly like Schaffer as the band played their classic namesake track, 'Iced Earth.'
Back in April, Danish metal outfit Volbeat announced the first string of shows for their upcoming North American tour with Hellyeah. Now, the band has followed that up with additional dates for the summer trek.
The metal as hell trio of Symphony X, Iced Earth and Warbringer recently powered their way into New York City on March 10 for one of the final dates of their extensive North American tour - and believe us when we say they did not disappoint.
Iced Earth sent a lightning bolt down into the musical realm with their 2011 release 'Dystopia.' Having already shot a video for the album's title track (which had a great run in our weekly Death Match) Iced Earth just released another video for 'Anthem,' their second single from 'Dystopia.'
In a unique backstage look at one of metal's most dominant bands, Iced Earth founder Jon Schaffer recently recorded a video tour of his road gear. Schaffer goes into precise detail about his collection of guitars, amps and even his choice in guitar picks.
Iced Earth have spearheaded a trifecta of destruction since the very inception of Death Match. They began by defeating deathcore band Carnifex, only to vanquish their second opponent, We Came As Romans. Iced Earth have now triumphed over one of metalcore's biggest names in Darkest Hour. One more win for Iced Earth will allow the track 'Dystopia' to be declared immortal in the Death Match Hall of Fame.
Iced Earth vanquished another foe in last week's Death Match, kicking rivals We Came As Romans to the curb. This marks Iced Earth's second Death Match win, bringing them two wins away from entering the Death Match Hall of Fame.
Progressive metal legends Iced Earth handily beat out Carnifex in Loudwire's very first Death Match. Iced Earth's single 'Dystopia' now moves on to the next Death Match, in which it will face a new challenger.
