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.

The song can be heard here:

“I’m proud to debut ‘Dystopia’ on,” said Iced Earth founder Jon Schaffer. “I hope Revolverreaders like it as much as we do.”

If the rave reviews piling up worldwide are any indication, they will:

Rock Hard Magazine “Album of the Month.”

Metal Hammer Germany “…the album is a classic…”

Powerplay (UK): “…"Dystopia" is a great album from a re-energised band…”

Dystopiais scheduled for release in Europe on October 17th, and in the U.S. on October 18th both via Century Media. Two bonus tracks have been recorded for inclusion on special editions of the album.

The release of Dystopia will be followed by the most extensive world tour Iced Earth has ever undertaken. See the Tour page for details.
