Iced Earth Recruits Into Eternity Vocalist Stu Block

American power metal band Iced Earth has announced that Stu Block, the lead vocalist of Into Eternity, has been recruited as the band's new lead singer, replacing Matt Barlow, who will be leaving the band after Iced Earth finishes touring Europe this Summer.

According to leader Jon Schaffer, Robert Kampf, CEO of Century Media, early on suggested Block, whose band Into Eternity was previously on the CM label. That reminded Schaffer of one night in September, 2008, when Into Eternity opened for Iced Earth.

"Iced Earth was backstage waiting to go on,” said Schaffer. “We heard one of Stu’s incredible wails. I remember turning to Matt and saying, ‘Damn, that dude has serious range.'"

So while Iced Earth’s management team sifted through the growing number of prospective vocalists, Schaffer got in touch with Block.

After several phone conversations with the then-prospective Iced Earth vocalist, Schaffer asked his manager to e-mail Block several key Iced Earth songs, with the vocals stripped. Block went into his studio and recorded himself singing, then sent the files back to the team.

The result landed Block an intense two days at Schaffer’s studio where the two musicians hit it off.

"I felt a lot of chemistry between us, we knocked out a couple of great original pieces of music in no time” said Schaffer. “He’s very good at coming up with catchy melodies, and will help with lyrical duties as well. There’s no doubt Stu has an amazing vocal range and a lot of energy, but he also has the touring experience, which is a big plus for our plans of performing in all corners of the world."

In addition, Schaffer said Block has what Iced Earth needs in a front man: "stage presence that includes high energy, passion, and focused rage."

"Stu is charismatic and understands the depth and varying emotions in Iced Earth’s music,” said Schaffer. "So he will embody not only the emotion of our songs, but he will be able to perform them in a dynamic way. I believe fans are in for some incredible records and live shows in the coming years."

New Iced Earth vocalist Stu Block concurs: "Iced Earth fans are wonderful, wonderful people,” he said. “The music is so passionate. So they’re passionate, and very loyal to the band. I am, too. I’m a huge fan of Iced Earth myself. So I share that same passion, and I will show it on stage. I think the fans are really going to dig it."

Block continues: "It’s a huge honor to be doing this, to be part of this team,” he said. “It’s a dream come true, for sure."

Schaffer is totally stoked. "This is a new beginning,” he said. “It’s game-on time. Iced Earth is going to record and tour like it never has before. The band is really amped-up and ready to hit the ground running in November."

This will definitely be a good fit. Decision kinda caught me offgaurd. Was expecting a unheard of replacement. Into Eternity is such a great band; kinda sucks they'll now need to find a replacement

Stu Block is on of the best vocalists in metal. He really does have a wide range of vocal skills, both death growls and beautiful clean vocals. I think this is going to be a great lineup.
I don't own any Iced Earth music (sorry) but if they release an album with Stu fronting vocals, that album will go into my collection.

R Tenney. If you're saying it sucks that Into Eternity will need to find a replacement I don't think they will. I'm sure Stu can put his efforts towards both groups at seperate times.
Because I've heard that Into Eternity is working on a new album, and I'm pretty sure Stu will do vocals on it. But I guess we'll wait and see.

Hell yea R Ten. I've got their last 2 albums. Phenomenal band. I haven't seen them live yet but I sure hope I don't sometime in the future, that is if Stu still stays with the band. I think they made a great move choosing him.

And Hellrat, I sure as hell hope it's different this time. Maybe that's why IE has always had vocalist changes, cause they can't handle being stuck to one band. I definitely wouldn't wanna be with only one band. You gotta explore your creativity.
But anyway, I hope Stu stays with Into Eternity because it wouldn't be the same without him. I'm with R Ten in saying you should check out Into Eternity HR. Crazy band.

made a playlist of Into Eternity on boobtube and have been listening while i'm working here....very good quality, a little too many 'sing-song' arrangements for my taste, but that singer is very good indeed....definitely hear the Arch influence, good ear Big R! and his very top end sounds a lot like tim owens'

i also like his death and blackish styles, very good....maybe he will be given the chance to incorporate some of those facets in his coming work with Iced Earth

i still believe his tone is slightly thin, and he doesn't seem to have much of a bottom end, but that's just me being a hard a$$ :)

all in all, pretty impressive and should be an excellent fit in Iced Earth

will continue to give 'Eternity the chance to grow on me, and thanks for the heads up dudes! \m/

I saw Into Eternity open for Sonata Arctica in 2005 or so. I own and would recommend Buried in Oblivion & Dead or Dreaming, two great releases.

Never really understood the hype over Into Eternity, they sound like borderline nu-metal at times. Though singers are a transplantable commodity so it sounds like he'll fit well to Iced Earth.

@R Tenney - I actually listened to "No Exit" at work today coincidentally, FW are purely prog-metal and f***ing fantastic. I'm not saying they're nu-metal at all, but I stand by the fact there are clearly a few nu-metal style riffs patched haphazardly in their music - it's a weird combo actually seeing how progressive they are.

never a big Into Eternity fan, but Stu's a great vocalist and I think a stylistic fit, though obviously no one will sound as perfect with them as Barlow. Maybe the same band initials thing is a sign? doubtful. But I do hope the files of Block singing over old IE tracks is released... that'd make a cool post-Something Wicked 3 EP or something of the sort.

BlindGreed- thanks bro, I agree this version of Iced Earth may not live up to their back catalog. Perhaps, Like Sabbath withi Gillian or Van Halen with Cheron, they still may make some music that is worthwhile, albeit to a much smaller fan base? Bottom line: If they make a good CD, I will buy it.

I can't believe I missed all the Into Eternity hype? Where was I, hahaha?!?! When I think "hype" I think Bullet for a Valentine, Trivium, that fugly blond chick in the dress (In the Moment?), Beyond the Dark Horizon, etc.

@ Cynic. I can kinda see where you're coming from with the nu-metal stuff, but at the same time I can't, if that makes sense. Into Eternity's guitarist has classical training which you can hear from the bands newest single Time Immemorial off their latest album.
I think they incorporate a lot of different riffs from a lot of different styles of metal and music in general. I don't know maybe I'm wrong.
But I love Into Eternity, it took a little bit for me to get into them though, because they really jump around in each of their songs, and most times you never see it coming. It's something I think you have to get used to.
Oh and R Tenney I agree with that Iron Maiden thing you said about Fates Warning. So true haha.

Yea hellrat I don't get that hype thing either. I don't think I've heard anyone in my area mention Into Eternity accept the people I got to listen to them.
Yea R Tenney I feel the same in a way. I mean if I listen I guess I'd hear it. But they have so many influences anyway it almost doesn't even matter.
But I'm still a Korn fan, and I just got into Deftones, with their new album, which I think is great. I was into Limp Bizkit back in the day (don't hate me heh heh) partly because I was a WWF wrestling fan, and I heard them a lot because of it. But Durst annoys the hell out of me.
I'll have to listen to Fates Warning more. I only listened to one song when you told me about them R Tenn but I'll listen to more. Great stuff.

Here we go: Yeah 15 reviews/90% on MA for a band which is not particularly huge is what I call hype.

Here's my original comment "they sound like borderline nu-metal at times" Borderline, at times, so don't mince my words. Secondly I never said or doubted anything about them being progressive, and equating nu-metal with bad is your imaginings not mine.

Track 1 of Buried In Oblivion, 0:45 - is that a Mudvayne riff or something? Haven't I heard Corey taylor yelling jumpdaf*** up over something like this before? Combine that with the ultra melodic chorus breaks and that's where I'm coming from. I can do this for the whole cd if you like.

Into Eternity i have been a fan of since my cousin dragged me to one of their concerts in Regina before they had any albums released. At first I was upset when Stu came into the band because i preferred the original singer, however he has quite grown on me since then, and is now one of my favorite vocalists after hearing him live a half of dozen times.

And well, Travel In Stygian was one of the songs to really get me into metal, and if I ever get a chance to hear Stu sing that song, I will be one of the happiest men alive.

hey Enraged, do you like Stygian with Barlow or Greeley on vox better?

For some reason, I always liked Greeley's singing a bit better on that particular song....but it pretty much ends there, as I do think Matt's renditions of the others are a good cut above

But I am also looking forward to getting the chance to hear Stu's vocal on it...i never heard Ripper on there

anyway, Great fvckin song!
