SO they are playing Bang Your Head but come on Iced Earth play the METAL FESTIVAL THAT MATTERS!
Holger said they won't come.
I think he said he doesn't want to take the risk of confirming a band that had to cancel last year's gig and now had to postpone their whole European tour.
so is it Holgers fault/ nonwillingness then?
but in the end I understand him
No, Iced Earths fault - seems they behaved like fucking rockstars, so Holger didn't want them this year. And he's absolutely right.
A journalist from Aardschok told me (at an Amon Amarth gig last weekend) that he knew that IE cancelled the Europe tour because it's not about his back, he wants more money with the new singer...
What did you expect, they are from USA. Lot of bands from USA feels to be important just because they can hold guitars in their hands
I used to listen a bit of ICED EARTH in the past. But personally, I think that the new album sucks. Even though I still think Ripper is a fantastic singer. But the material in "The Glorius Burden" is fucking boring. At least for me. I really expected so much more.....
Some songs are quite OK but if you remind yourself that this band once wrote songs like "The hunter" , "Travel to Stygian" or "Violate".....
Travel In Stygian.
My personal favourite IE albums seem to be Horror Show (well...because it was my first metal album ever) and Something Wicked...
I like the new one, but it's certainly not their best album.
Nevertheless I would have loved to see the band this year...but as I won't be at the Bang Your Head I can only hope for new dates to replace the cancelled European shows.
Iced Earth is just a trademark. It sells records. Tell my, how many people would buy the last album, if there wouldnt be written trademark "Iced Earth"?
You all know nothing. Jon Schaffer's back is well bad, if anyone saw Headbangers ballroom on MTV2 a couple of weeks back, he had to use a crutch to walk about backstage. The Glorious Burden isn't an amazing album... it has its moments tho.... and they aren't ever going to do another 'something wicked....' quality album.... And finally, Iced Earth are playing Graspop... I urge everyone to go to that... as the lineup is brilliant this year, whereas the wacken lineup is'nt that hot tbh.
I taped that Headbangers Ball with Iced Earth.In the middle of the new IE video,a commercial came on.At the end of the commercial they showed the rest of the video.I found out that everybody that has Direct TV,it happened to them,too.
oh my fucking GOD!
I cannot believe it......
anyway...the video of The Reckoning is relatively boring...especially the quiet part with the lamps and the faces of the two protagonists ...or is the video a different one in the US?
The Ball will have Traci Gunns & Nikki Sixx from their new band,The Brides Of Destruction this Sat. night.
