Since Dystopia was released in October of 2011, ICED EARTH has been on the attack in a big way, playing more shows in the past year than in the previous ten years...combined!
ICED EARTH main man Jon Schaffer: “I feel this is a testament to a new beginning, a new energy and a rock solid determination that will see us taking the music of ICED EARTH to every corner of the globe; spreading the awareness of our brand of metal in a way that hasn’t been done before. I’ve never been more proud of this band, our crew, and the people behind the scenes that are responsible for much of our success.”
I just wanted give you a quick update:
We are locked and loaded and ready to roll out for the final leg of the Dystopia World Tour.
The "Live In Ancient Kourion"-DVD will be released in early April, so I thought I would share the artwork with you.
