With the release of Dystopia, the world will experience a new Iced Earth -- a lean, mean kick-ass-and-take-names Iced Earth. So we felt it was time for a new Iced Earth web site.
We've wanted to make it more user-friendly, anyway. But -- most importantly -- we've wanted to add new features (such as a music player and band member bios). So we did.
Dystopia – Iced Earth’s 10th studio album – won’t be released until October 18th, but Revolver readers will get a taste of the sonic onslaught to come with an exclusive airing of "Dystopia", the album’s title track, on Thursday, October 6th.
Check out the behind-the-scenes footage of the making of Dystopia. This is the first of five webisodes that will be uploaded to Century Media's Official YouTube channel. So stay tuned!
Fury UK and White Wizzard will join Iced Earth on the European leg of the legendary metal band’s 2011-2012 World Dystopia Tour.
Fury UK, a three-piece British metal band that combines the rawness of NWOBM with an aggressive power-metal vibe, has released three full-length albums, with Way of Life being their most recent. Fury UK will open the show. The band’s official website is here.
American heavy-metal band White Wizzard – with riffs, attitude, and swagger to burn – will tear it up after Fury UK leaves the stage. White Wizzard has released two EPs and an album titled Over the Top. A new album (Flying Tigers) is due later this month. The band’s official website is here.
Some bands release mere snippets of songs to preview their upcoming tours. Some release a single song. In typical balls-to-the-wall Iced Earth fashion, the legendary metal band has re-recorded the entire 17-minute fan-favorite epic “Dante’s Inferno” – and will give it away free here, on the band's official web site.
