Biography

Iced Earth's tenth album Dystopia, released in 2011, marked the beginning of a new chapter in the band's career with the entrance of former Into Eternity vocalist Stu Block. Their new album Plagues Of Babylon is volatile proof the accolades Iced Earth received for Dystopia weren't a case of beginner's luck. Then again, guitarist/founder Jon Schaffer has trusted his blood, sweat ... Read more in Amazon's Iced Earth Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Mind-blowing, awe-inspiring & totally incredible 20 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD
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!!

Iced Earth have long been brushed under the red carpet my the metal media, not for reasons unknown but more likely becouse Iced Earth came on to the scene and were perceived to be copy-cat idols playing out of date unfashionable 80's style thrash, which of course is absolute nonsense! however though in the end great music is great music, and i can say with a solid certainty that "Burnt Offerings" is definately worth your time and money.

This and the spellbinding "Something wicked this way comes" are in my opinion the two best albums from this great florida band, in Burnt Offerings you'll find a 9set strong of diverse and competant metal songs, excellent metal riffs are all over the place, intertwined also with rapid guitar shredding especially the excellent "Burning Oasis" and "Late December"

Now i no this might seem like a skull crushing affair, but actually even though it's undeniably heavy, it's very melodic and tuneful, solos are in galore and a blinder in "creator failiure" should be enough to convince the doubtful listener that this is certainly not simple craftmanship! At the end we are treated to the beautiful "Dante's Inferno" a 16 minute epic very leaningful to the progressive side of things and cut this out with expert precision.

The musical landscapes that are explored in "Burnt Offerings" are done to such a high standard and so convincingly that i simply can't do this album an ounce less justice and award less than 5stars.
As you can tell i love this album and would highly recommend it to the informed and open minded metal fan, any Iced Earth fans who don't own this should put this on their list next...

5.0 out of 5 stars One word - EPIC. 18 Aug 2007
Format:Audio CD
`Burnt Offerings' is Iced Earth's third album and was released in 1995 on the Century Media Records label. This album heralds the introduction of legendary vocalist Matt Barlow, however, in 2003 Barlow departed the band to work for the Department of Homeland Security, after the atrocities of 9/11 had a profound effect on him. Since then, he has been considered by many to be the voice behind Iced Earth, despite the band having three other vocalists during their existence, including Barlow's replacement Tim `Ripper' Owens. The central figure of Iced Earth is rhythm guitarist and songwriter, Jon Schaffer who started the band in 1984, by taking the rudiments of thrash metal, power metal, progressive metal, speed metal and N.W.O.B.H.M. and combining them to a very sophisticated and unique sound.

The most characteristic element of the band's sound is the stuttering right-hand gallop of rhythm guitarist Jon Schaffer, which sounds something like the gallop made famous by Iron Maiden's bass player Steve Harris, and has always remained a trademark sound of the band. Overtop of this gallop are typically laid strong melodic hooks, sometimes doubled by two guitars playing in harmony. To date, `Burnt Offerings' has to be the heaviest, darkest and most ominous release the band has created. The album was written during a time of turmoil and anger for the band and this is particularly true when focussing on the lyrics and the depressing artwork that has been presented. A fine example of this turmoil is with the title song `Burnt Offerings' in which Scaffer vents his spleen towards the struggles the band had with the record label at the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 29 Oct 2003
Format:Audio CD
Iced Earth return for thier 3rd studio album, now featuring for the first time Matt Barlow on vocals. Along with "dark saga" and "something wicked", Burnt offerings has alot to offer. Possibly their darkest album, its content is mainly about the trouble's that Jon Schaffer had getting the band going.The album has a strange "black" Metal feel to it, but it works perfectly. Once again, the singing is amazing,The guitar riff's are perfect and the drumming and bass guitar set the perfect, horse-gallop pace. Buy it, you'll love it!!! true metal at its extreme best.
