Iced Earth



Iced Earth is an American power metal band that has been around for a while. As such, they have gone through several singers. So if one album doesn't do very much for you, I would suggest trying another. Musically, they've mostly been influenced by NWOBHM (New Wave of British Heavy Metal...i.e.Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, ect.) One last note, this is going to be another band that has too many albums for me to cover. As such, I'm just going to pick and choose.

This is A Question of Heaven, from one of my favorite albums by them, The Dark Saga, which is a concept album based on the comic book character, Spawn.



Next, is Dante's Inferno, from their album, Burnt Offerings. Yes, at 16 minutes, and some change, it's rather long, but it IS based on an epic. Also, this version is from their live DVD, Alive in Athens. Sorry for the break. The only version I could find (live or studio) that was on one video had bad audio.




And finally, Then Thousand Strong from their album Framing Armageddon. Yes, the video is very cheesy.



....I know I said, "finally", and that usually insinuates the end, but I thought I'd add one more since it was requested yesterday. This is The Coming Curse from Something Wicked This Way Comes.
