Matt will be singing on Part 2 of the Something Wicked concept CD and we will be looking forward to getting out on tour and delivering a series of Iced Earth shows that will rival any in the history of the band. And there will be a proper DVD filmed from this period, something we’ve all been waiting for.

thats as much as there is right now

That is absolutely awesome but I can't help but wonder what's going to happen with the new material form something wicked part one, does Matt have the same range as Tim in the higher registers?

But anyway, this is brilliant news, I'll be getting that DVD when it comes.

Matt's voice actually goes higher, its just a lot different than the Ripper.

What? You say it's amazing news yet you don't even know the potential of Barlow? Go listen to Dracula now.

Bingo. Barlow hits higher notes in Dracula than the Ripper has ever done with IE.

and besides, the earlier material with Barlow and Greely is IE's best. I certaintly would never be upset if they didnt play any of the new material live.

I said it's amazing news because Matt's voice is just better than Tim's imho, that doesn't mean I've heard everything he ever did. I will seek out this song anyway.

It's possibly IE's best song.

Kudos to the Hitchhiker's Guide username btw.


Oh, yeah, and

YESSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I do hope that Barlow is still album to keep his commitments to Pyramaze, because that band is awesome and Barlow would make a great addition to it.

... IE didn't really go with his voice.

I beg to differ.

I didn't mind the Ripper, but Barlow is pretty much pure win in Iced Earth.

Awesome, Ripper blew. Not afraid to say it.


Barlow fit the best, we can all agree on that. But saying the Ripper blew as a vocalist is by far the most ignorant thing ANYBODY has ever said.

goddamn that's awesome news!

I do like Ripper tho
I’m not the man I used to be, I... I can’t go back to Arkham.

I... I should return to Arkham.

Ready to get pissed?


I think Priest should take Ripper back and make another album like Jugulator! And I'm not even joking...

Does anybody else wonder how the whole "We're going back to our ex" thing went down? You think Ripper was pissed or anything? Are there any statements from him? I know I'd be kinda pissed if I was in a band that decided to switch singers in the middle of what is basically a double-concept album...

anyway, I hope IE does some extensive touring, 'cuz I'd love to see Barlow rippin' it on stage.
