^ My shop has Revolver. It's a decent mag, but the issues take forever to come out and I learn 10 times more on MU then I do in that mag. But it's got good interviews.

But anyway this song is really badass. It didn't really hook me but it's definitely catching my attention. Stu does some really good crunchy low clean vocals. Glad I got a chance to hear it and I'll listen to more songs as they come out. It's a good start into an interesting world of Iced Earth.

@ ZMA - thanks for the MU endorsement! The band premiered the track on Revolver exclusively, so it was too important not to spread the word to MU readers!

No prob CROM, I love MU. I probably wouldn't have known about this if it hadn't been posted on here so it's much appreciated. You're lucky you get to work on this site. I'd love a job doin' this.
But yes this site accelerated my addiction to music, like a crack addict getting handed a picnic basket full of loaded crack pipes (which is an interesting thought in itself lol).

Z,love your humour dude! Yea,used to check out Revolver back in the day. Its gone down hill,imo. To many scene teen bands. I remember when the did a pretty cool tribute on Dimebag after he died. Really the only metal mag i consistantly check out these days is Decibal. Or if i can get my hands on one,Terrorizer. The web has squashed mags,cant see em around in a few years. Hell,got into so many bands from those old Metal Maniacs,RIP's,Metal Mania magazines. Things were my bible back in the day!

Yea R10 I aspire to be a lot of things and a stand up comic is one heh heh. But I think I wanna do too much with my life that will never end up getting done. Then again I'm only in my 20's so I got a few decades to make all these demented visions in my head reality mwahaha.......
I remember that Dimebag issue. They also did a Vulgar Display Of Power issue like a year ago that was really badass. I've never actually picked up and read a Decibal issue, I've only skimmed through one. I should check it out, but honestly I don't have to cause of this fine website we visit.
I think you're right though Mr. 10. Magazines will probably become less and less over the years because of online. I mean it's happening that way with everything else.
I just downloaded American Horror Story today. That show literally just aired last night and I already have a Blu-Ray quality video of the full ep. Same with music. So I think books and mags days are numbered. But that'll just give me more reason to keep coming here =].

@ZMA - it is a privilege indeed. Been a metal fan since 1986, so I consider being able to promote the music I love to be a gift!

It's really too bad the drums sound like plastic. I appreciate them trying to give the bass more room in the mix, but damn. It sounds like they put the mics in another room when they recorded the drum tracks.

Stu Block, though, he is amazing. I have always loved his work in Into Eternity, and he sounds great here in Iced Earth. He may emulate Barlow a little bit sometimes, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

I just wish they didn't sound so stale to me these days. I haven't really been a fan of the way the last few albums have been produced, and this album appears to be done very similarly, so that doesn't help matters much.

Here's to hoping the rest of the album has something more to offer to me. I fear, however, that aside from listening to what Stu has added to the formula, the rest is going to be pretty predictable. I really hope I'm wrong.
