Band and Crew have gathered and we have begun rehearsals for the Volbeat-Tour that kicks off this Friday in Milan. We are really excited to begin this new touring cycle even though it feels like the previous one only ended yesterday.
It will certainly be killer to see you guys out there and hang with my brother Michael and the guys in Volbeat and their team.
I'm happy to announce that we are once again being joined on tour by our friends in Warbringer for our Headline European Tour starting in 2014.
We are also welcoming Elm Street from Australia as well. I was impressed with their energy and their music. I think it will be a great package and a great tour.
See you out there!
We are proud to present you with the new cover art for “Plagues of Babylon”.
This is a seriously heavy album with a seriously brutal album cover. I’m sure it will go down as a classic in the epic ICED EARTH catalog.
1. Plagues of Babylon
3. The Culling
4. Among The Living Dead
6. The End?
7. If I Could See You
11. Spirit of the Times
Hello brothers and sisters,
I’m proud to announce that we have completed all the tracking for the new album, “Plagues of Babylon”.
There’s quite a selection of epic heaviness on your way, for release early next year.
Congratulations to the Wacken Open Air organisers for a record-breaking sell-out for next year's W:O:A -- we are excited to be there and kick some serious ass!
On a completely different note, Jon became involved in the Silver Circle Movie and Pasha and the good people at SILVER CIRCLE have put together a very cool video for SPIRIT OF THE TIMES from Jon's project
we are all happy to present another great news for all ICED EARTH supporters:

We are happy to report that tracking for the new ICED EARTH studio album has begun!
We will keep you posted of the developments here. Spread the word!
ICED EARTH have announced that BRENT SMEDLEY will be stepping down from drum
duty in ICED EARTH for personal family reasons. The new drummer will be RAPHAEL
SAINI and will be performing with the group starting this summer.
“I have family members that are elderly and frail and need my help here in Jacksonville”,
Brent Smedley says. “It’s been one of the hardest decisions of my life but I simply cannot
commit to the kind of schedule the band deserves and requires so I decided to ask
permission to step down from my post.”
“Brent has been a valued member of the group for a long time. We thank him for his
contributions, friendship and energy and wish him all the best for the future. We want to
welcome Raphael with open arms and are expecting for our fans to give him the welcome
he deserves” - ICED EARTH.
