This is a great band. The Glorious Burden was the first of their albums I bought and it is probally my favorite. Iced Earth is very Iron Madien influenced band. On top of this it has like an opera singer which is pretty rad.

All the lyrics are about the civil war or some other war. The way they sing is pretty nuts, for example in one of their songs, Atila, they have these two voices of opposite sides and they are singing back and forth. I really like the voices in this CD.
Overall Impression — 10
As I said this is probably my favorite of their CDs. My favorite songs of this CD are "The Reckoning," which is the first song I heard of theirs, "Attila," and the Gettysburg songs. They don't really have a "bad song" on this album all of them are pretty crazy.
