äh, nö Die ersten drei Alben (Iced Earth, Night of the Stormrider, Burnt Offerings): Melodischer Thrash, teils mit schon fast progressiven Songaufbauten (massig Riffs, kaum Wiederholungen) aber meilenweit von Prog Metal entfernt. die nächsten beiden (Dark Saga, Something Wicked): US Power Metal das darauffolgende (Horror Show): Mischung aus US und europäischem Power Metal das neuste (Glorious Burden): Müll
also iced earth is ziemlich geil eigentlich, der jon schaffer (guitar) hat nen mörder anschlag, den zeigt er nur net so oft. anspielt tipps: My own savior, Dark saga, Watching over me, melancholcy
was auch ziemlich cool is, ist das neue Demons & Wizards album, das is der gitarrist von iced earth ( für den extra ein spezieller amp, gebaut werden musste , der die bässe für seinen anschlag schnell genug produziert ^^) und hansi kürsch, sänger von blind guardian, das erste lied is da einfach der HAMMA
der sieht so aus als würde er "I- USA" Slipper tragen

According to Amazon.com and Century Media Records' official release schedule, a new ICED EARTH DVD, entitled "Alive in Athens", is slated for release on October 31. The set is believed to contain video footage recorded during the band's 1999 two-night appearance at at the Rodon Club in Athens, Greece which previously resulted in a two-disc live CD of the same name. More information will be made available soon.
As previously reported, ICED EARTH recently officially launched the search for a new bassist. All interested parties are encouraged to send their bio packs to ICED EARTH mainman Jon Schaffer's store at the following address:

ICED EARTH in late June announced the addition of Elkton, MD guitarist Ernie Carletti to the group's ranks.
Mastering his craft beyond 19 years and teaching guitar lessons to 100 students weekly in excess of 16 years, Carletti is equally versed in styles such as classical and jazz but his first love is heavy metal "shredding."
The central figure of ICED EARTH is guitarist and songwriter Jon Schaffer, who originally formed the band as PURGATORY in 1984. Though the band has undergone numerous lineup changes since its inception, Schaffer has remained steadfast in his passion to thrash.
Schaffer is currently working on a concept album based on the "Something Wicked This Way Comes" story that first appeared on ICED EARTH's 1998 album of the same name. A 2007 release is expected.
ICED EARTH's last release was the "Gettysburg (1863)" DVD, which came out in June 2005. The main program, a CGI-rendered video presentation of the epic "Gettysburg" trilogy from 2004's acclaimed album "The Glorious Burden", drew praise from fans and media alike. The DVD was also reportedly being used as a teaching tool in several high schools across the country.

In Antwort auf: ICED EARTH guitarist/mainman Jon Schaffer has posted the following message on the band's official web site:
"Again I have to apologize for the delay in updates. I've been extremely busy with writing and preproduction for the new ICED EARTH CDs.
"I also lost the one person that was my true mentor and inspiration throughout my life, which was very difficult. My father, Tom Schaffer, died unexpectedly of a massive stroke in October. He was 67, and died two weeks before his 68th birthday. It's hard to imagine what my life would have been like without my Dad's influence. I would not be who I am today, that's for sure. Fortunately, he was able to travel with the band a few times, and he really enjoyed meeting and talking with the fans. He was there for the 'Alive in Athens' recording and was dubbed Papa Earth by some of the fans in Greece. I will miss him very much.
"Obviously, this had a huge impact on me and brought the writing to a halt for about a month.
"I'm back on track and we are going to start recording on February 1st. We will be releasing a single/EP in June '07 that will feature the 'Something Wicked' trilogy re-recorded and a track that will be an alternate edit of a song that will be on 'Something Wicked Part 2' that now has a working title of 'Come What May'. The label was wanting me to do something with the original trilogy to reintroduce the story. So, what we have in store for you is very cool. You will hear 'Prophecy', 'Birth of the Wicked', and 'The Coming Curse' in a new way that will be a very killer way to kick off this massive epic.
"I don't want to give you any details to spoil the surprise, but trust me, it's going to be awesome.
"'Something Wicked (Part 1)' will be released in the September/October '07 time frame and Part 2 will follow in January/February '08.
"This is by far the most epic task I've ever taken on as a songwriter and I really feel like it will be worth all the sacrifice when it's finished. I've been working nonstop for over a year now and it's coming together in a very special way. I've just about finished all the musical arrangements and am now focusing on writing the lyrics/vocal melodies. I'm in the final stretch now...
"Tim Mills has contributed a few really cool pieces of music and has shown a real interest in the whole 'Something Wicked' story, and a real passion for being involved with the band. All this while owning and operating his own company (Bare Knuckle Pickups). I'm impressed, it's a rare quality, believe me.
"Also, the bass player on the next record is a local boy from Indianapolis whose name is James 'Bo' Wallace. Bo is a killer player and a great personality. I went to see him perform several months ago and was impressed with his abilities, energy and passion. He played with MA KELLEY for many years and released several records on a few different independent labels. Without a doubt, Bo is a great bass player and I'm happy to have him working with ICED EARTH.
"Here's a list of working titles for the upcoming epic. There will likely be changes but this gives you an idea of where things are going."

Kurzform: Im Februar gehts ins Studio, wo u.a. die Something Wicked Trilogie neu aufgenommen und mit Tim am Gesang ruiniert werden wird, die dann zusammen mit EINEM einzigen neuen Song als EP im Juni rauskommen soll, bevor im Herbst dann Teil 1 der beiden konzeptalben zur Something Wicked Thematik.
Ausserdem ham Iced Earth nun auch nen neuen Bassisten, der natürlich killer und great und schlagmichtot ist, zumindest bis jon ihn rauswirft und ducrh einen killeren und greateren ersetzt.
und überreste werden natürlich auch munter weiter verwertet, z.b. ist "A Gift or a Curse" ein titel, mit dem JOn auch schon zu Zeiten von Glorious Boredom um sich geschmissen hat, der es aber nicht auf selbigen langweile geschafft hat.
