aw crap.

I was going to see them live in 2 weeks in Bangalore and now apparently they are not coming due to Visa issues.


This year they are finally the headliners at the 2nd Bangalore Open Air in July.


I really wanted to see them live but not sure I can make it this time
Some other good stuff like Sodom and Dark Tranquillity on the bill this time too (and stuff like Ihsahn, Leprous and Animals as Leaders which I have no intention of paying good money for)

And the release date has been pushed to January.

Looks good, hopefully it will be a bit better than Dystopia (which wasn't bad but just didn't excite me too much)

The artwork looks awesome but I don't have very high hopes for it. It'll probably be along the lines of Dystopia; decent but nothing special.

New song.

HELLEDIT: Ugh, this song drags on and is pretty boring. Hopefully the rest of the album isn't like this.

While I agree with this statement, it still sounds better than the glorious burden. Hats off to Stu Block. Thought it was Barlow for a minuet.

Stu's doing an amazing job replicating Barlow, but on first listen the song in general isn't too impressive. I'll have to listen to it a few more times though

That track reminded me of mid-tempo Persuader when they aren't ripping off Blind Guardian.


Eh, Iced Earth are way past their prime anyhow.
I’m not the man I used to be, I... I can’t go back to Arkham.

I... I should return to Arkham.

Iced Earth being my favorite band, I hope this album has at least 5 good songs on it. Dystopia was a major disappointment in my eyes. After you hear the best, you expect the best from then on, anything less is a disappointment.

Iced Earth are not in my genre of choice but I still isten to them, that goes to say that they have something special.

I'm listening to Plagues of Babylon right now on Spotify, nine songs in. You know, if I pretend this is a different band, and don't compare it to the really awesome IE albums, I'm actually quite enjoying this.

I still can't figure out why you'd write stuff on your guitar when you could have a Hello Kitty strat like all the other metal kids do.

One of my favourite bands, I love Plagues but it did trake me a while to get into it. Love Dystopia too. Stu in my oppinion is they're best singer, Never thought I would say that over Matt, but Stu's range is awesome.
Really cool guys, met them a few times now. I hope on the next tour they do the VIP again, that was an awesome expirence.

missed this release somehow...it started pretty well I thought but the part where the guitars come in full force could have been sped up a bit...the verse gets a bit boring though. hopefully the other tracks are better.
