Reviews

The Florida heavy metal act captured live in performance at the Kourion Theatre in Cyprus in August 2012. Recording in an ampitheatre that is over 6,000 years old in scorching summer temperatures presented a series of challenges to the band. They nonetheless played a number of their most popular songs including 'Dystopia', 'Burning Times' and 'I Died for You'.

Live In Ancient Kourion is a live concert Blu-Ray from the American Power Metal band Iced Earth. It was filmed at the ancient Kourion Theater in Limasol, Cyprus (a site with a 6,000-year history according to the liner notes) in 2012, in support of the Dystopia album. The line up features Jon Schaffer, Brent Smedley, Troy Steele, Luke Appleton and then-new singer Stu Block.

The career-spanning set contains 27 songs from all eras of the band’s history, in a concert that lasts around 2 hours and 35 minutes. Its pretty great value for money in that regard.

The performance is very strong indeed, with all band members putting down solid performances with no weak links. Stu capably handles the material of previous singers Matt Barlow and Tim Ripper Owens in a suitable but distinctive way. He fits the band perfectly and is immensely talented. Elsewhere; the dual guitar lines and solos are sublime and the drumming is powerful and rock-solid. If you like Iced Earth then this is a really strong and representative example of what they are all about.

Highlights include strong performances of ‘Burning Times,’ ‘Wolf,’ ‘Declaration Day,’ ‘Days Of Rage’ and ‘Dantes Inferno.’ ‘Boiling Point’ and ‘Damien’ are also especially energetic and exciting here – if you were wondering if you’d enjoy this release, then I suggest trying those two tracks out.

The stage design and the simple, tasteful lightshow in conjunction with the well-integrated use of smoke and pyro perfectly complements the band’s meaty, honest approach to Metal music. The crowd get into it and both clap and sing along on many occasions. Sometimes not only singing the words but also the guitar melodies. The concert really shows a confident band delivering their best to an appreciative crowd.

This DVD is astounding and Iced Earth have created a masterpiece!
Stu Block (the new singer) is in awe inspiring form and this is a real highlight of the show. He is backed by one hell of an incredibly tight band, with an awesome sound. The 5.1 mix sounds really good to me.
This DVD showcases the fact that Iced Earth have an amazing back catalogue of songs, and they manage to cover every album (I think!) on this DVD.
I own Alive in Athens and I thought that was an unbeatable concert, but I have to say that this does manage to beat it - it's that good.
I discovered Iced Earth about 5 years ago and man am I glad that I did. They are now one of my top 5 five bands of all time and this DVD cements that position even further. I hope that they continue to reach more people and get more of the success and respect that they deserve.
