Iced Earth Issues Festival Recap

Iced Earth bassist Freddie Vidales has checked in with the following recap of the band's summer festival appearances:

"Hey all - I know it’s been over a month since our last show, but I’ve been quite busy and trying to find time to put this together. Here’s a summary of how I spent my summer with Iced Earth. As best as I can remember that is. I’ll be posting some pictures on Facebook soon that go along with these accounts.

"Sweden Rock: I arrived in Copenhagen, Denmark the day before our show. Usually when we get to Europe, we all arrive at different times of the day and in various states of tiredness from the travel. It’s not uncommon to not see one another the entire first day of our trip. I did meet up with Matt that night down in the lobby and we had something to eat and a beer before heading back up to our rooms. On the day of the show we met down in the lobby for our two-hour ride to the festival. We arrived around noon and headed to our dressing room/modular steel container to drop off our stuff. I roamed around some and got to watch a little bit of Agent Steel and Mr. Big before it was soon time for us to go on.

"We blazed through the set, then hung around for a couple more hours running into friends from other bands that we always see doing the festival circuit. I watched Down, some of Rob Zombie and Helloween before it was time to head back. I did notice that the sun didn’t feel like going down without a fight being that we were pretty far north on the globe. We got back to the hotel and were on a flight the next morning for Germany.

Iced Earth Offering Re-Recorded "Dante's Inferno"

Iced Earth has re-recorded the entire 17-minute epic "Dante's Inferno" and is currently offering the track as a free download online.

“If there’s one song fans have asked us to play live more than any other it’s ‘Dante’s Inferno,’” Iced Earth main man Jon Schaffer said. “The simple reason why we haven’t is because the original click track was erased, therefore requiring a keyboard player to do the parts live. That’s OK for a special event like when we recorded Alive in Athens, but to hire a keyboard player for a full tour, for one song, just isn’t financially feasible.”

This summer, during the recording of "Dystopia," Iced Earth’s soon-to-be-released 10th studio album, the band entered the studio for the express purpose of remedying that situation and re-recording the closing track on the band’s 1995 album "Burnt Offerings."

Schaffer and new vocalist Stu Block talk about the recording of “Dante’s Inferno” in the video clip available after the jump. The new version of “Dante’s Inferno” can be downloaded at this location.

“Dante’s Inferno” (which is based on Inferno, the first part of Dante’s poem The Divine Comedy) hasn’t been played live since 1999’s groundbreaking Alive in Athens album. “We wanted to say ‘Thank You’ to all of our loyal fans who have waited so long to hear us play ‘Dante’ again,” said Schaffer. “So, we decided to give this to them, free. It’s because of our fans we’ve been able to make music all these years. This is a way to show how much we appreciate them.” More...
