I kid you not folks, this is the best metal album EVER! Musically it cant be beat, every single note and lyric is complete perfection. The album as a whole is so pure, Iced Earth dont try anything they dont want, it is completely on their own backs (which is rare nowadays).
Burnt Offerings is my fave song of all time. Great riffs and great vocals. Creator Failure has an amaqzingly simple yet brilliant opening, just simple heavy riff!!! Dantes Inferno is as epic as u can get... a trip through the 9 planes of hell. 16.5 minutes long yet doesnt drag AT ALL.
Infact, all the songs combine thoughtfull slow melody, epicness and thrash riffs that make u just wanna scream with joy and run headfirst into the nearest brick wall.
Burnt Offerings is as pure a Heavy Metal album as you'll find, heavy as hell and drool-worthy... and when it finishes you'll feel epic all over!!
