On this night these ancient relics of the metal inferno lit up the times and burned them down again and again. The “World Wide Plagues Tour” continues to a city near you, catch em if you can is worth the few bucks neither line up will disappoint.
Previous Iced Earth members have left for multiple reasons, everyone thinks the main reason behind it all is Jon Schaffer, which I completely disagree on. This band is Jon Schaffer’s baby, he knows a formula that works in this industry and he knows what he wants. A lot of previous members didn’t agree with his decisions, so therefore they parted ways
Interview with Jon Schaffer (Guitars) (Iced Earth)
Iced Earth and Warbringer live at Button Factory in Dublin on January 13th, 2013
“If a band sound as good live, as they do on the CD, they’re all right in my book” and they do sound every bit as good as their albums, if not better live! To sum up Volbeat, these guys are true romantics and this can be heard in their material, which helps them to appeal on a grand scale, but its how they write and perform their love songs that makes Volbeat so unique.
Interview with Matt Barlow (Vocals) (Ashes of Ares, former Iced Earth)
The Power Metal influence is slightly less than usual but there’s still a really epic feel to the whole album. I’d say the overall vibe here is a bit of mix between METALLICA circa AND JUSTICE FOR ALL and TESTAMENT circa LOW with some IRON MAIDEN thrown in for good measure.
