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.'

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.'
Iced Earth have spearheaded a trifecta of destruction since the very inception of Death Match.
