To say that Dystopia, Iced Earth’s 10th studio album, has opened doors would be an understatement. Not only has the album been a runaway favorite of critics and fans (both old and new) alike, it has taken the band to new countries on the most far-reaching tour in its 25-year history. Next up: China.
The music video for “Anthem” – shot in Cologne, Germany, during the European leg of Iced Earth’s 2011-2012 World Dystopia tour – is now available!
“We had a blast making that video,” said Iced Earth main man Jon Schaffer. “I think the fans can see it on our faces. ‘Anthem’ captures the energy of our live shows, as well as the fun we’re having together as a band.”
Produced and directed by Kosch Fabian Film, “Anthem” is the second music video released from Iced Earth’s highly acclaimed 10th studio album Dystopia.
Even if you're not a gear head, you'll still enjoy this peek behind the scenes.
I just wanted to take a quick moment to wish you all a very happy holiday season.
