I've only heard the odd track from this band in the past and to tell the truth they've been a bit hit and miss but by checking various reviews I kept hearing this release being praised as their best work so I bought it blind and was pleasantly surprised as I could not find one weak track on the whole album. Anyone wanting an introduction to Iced Earth go no further.

Im not going to say this is the best album your every going to hear, or best band ever because everyone has their own different tastes, but as far as metal is concered Iced earth are up there with the greats. Iced earth have released 11 albums and i have to say this is one of the best they have done.

kicking the album off with a song called "burning times" really gets you in the mood for whats to come on the album. a nice steady paced song, starting off with a catchy guitar riff and heavy bass line, altho during the middle of the song it does get a bit repetitive, repeating the chorus of lyrics. but i still rate this song quite high

Second song on the album is "Melancholy (Holy Martyr)" and this is a dramatic change in in the way the first song was done (alot more gentle to start with) but once you get 1 minuet into the song you realize why iced earth are a reconised band. from the gentle tune you get the heavy riff come slamming in picking the pace of the song right up.

next on the album is "diciples of the lie" this is where you start to see the ture shape of the album the pace starts getting faster the lyrics are almost "whiney" but so good. they make it go with the instruments so well.

Then we have "Watching Over Me" this song is almost depressing. quite alot like Melancholy with they soft to hard transition but the lyrics are quite down (about how he his best friend died and is now watching over him)

there are 13 songs in total on the album, i have only talked the first 4 but as an over all album i give it the thumbs up only 1 or 2 let the album down but usually alot of bands only have 1 or 2 "Amazing" songs on an album, this band is full of them. here is a list of whats on the album with a rating of each song:

what an album by Iced Earth! Theres Reign In Blood Master Of Puppets Number Of The Beast Blessed Are The Sick and now theres Something Wicked This Way Comes
each track is different from each other for example the ferocity of Burning Times to the mellowness of Watching Over Me
but it is the Something Wicked Trilogy which shakes you to the core. the 13th track The Coming Curse comes in like a jackhammer watch out for the monk chants during the bridge and end of the song it will give you goosebumps. Jon Schaffer's songwriting is at its most excellent. Matthew Barlow is at his screaming growling melodic best!
the line up are
Jon Schaffer - Rhythm Guitar, Vocals
Matthew Barlow - Lead Vocals
Randall Shawver - Lead Guitar
Dave Abell - Bass Guitar
Mark Prator - Drums
think of this band as an American version of Iron Maiden but way heavier
