U.S. power metal band Iced Earth premiered its new music video for the song "Anthem," exclusively on Revolver Magazine's website at this location. The video was filmed in Cologne, Germany during the European leg of Iced Earth’s world tour.

Guitarist Jon Schaffer commented on the video: “We had a blast making that video. I think the fans can see it on our faces. ‘Anthem’ captures the energy of our live shows, as well as the fun we’re having together as a band.”

The video was produced and directed by Kosch Fabian Film. "Anthem" is the second music video released from Iced Earth’s latest studio album "Dystopia" (see Metal Underground's review at this location. The video for the title track can be seen here.

That was a pretty cool video. I still can't get passed the first track off this album. I really like Dystopia and then the rest of the album starts to fall short for me. Kinda sad about that.

ya, its funny how varied all our tastes can be...I really like the new record, except for that second to last tune...WAY too cheesy :)

But tunes like Boiling Point, Dark City, Equilibrium...them tunes are fvckin bad ass! Glad to see Stu writing a lot of the lyrics, he doesn't get quite as cheeseball as Schaffer sometimes does.

I'm just glad when Barlow left they didn't try to get the Ripper back...I fvcking hate that dudes vocals. I bought the Glorious Burden, listened to it once, skimmed through it again to make sure, said "Yep, this is fvcking dogsh!t" Hit eject, slid that piece of crap down the grip tape of my brothers skate, and winged it out the frikken window of my truck! it was very satisfying :)

Never listened to another thing with that yodeler howling on it...but I'm sure some other folks like him

Still prefer my video of this song on youtube lol
I agree with u ZMA - I was not a massive fan of this album either, despite seeing them live last month, the title track was the only one I will listen to again

Yea HR I'm a Ripper fan lol. Not any Iced Earth stuff, but his Beyond Fear sh!t is insane. So are the Charred Walls Of The Damned albums.

cbella, yea it's funny. I tried to used that album to get into this band considering how much I like Stu Block, and it sort of worked because it made me go back and listen to the pre-Barlow era debut album and it was awesome.

Love this tune,plus Dystopia,and Dark City,a bad azz tune. Albums solid as fvck as far as im concerned. Looking forward to the Worcester show in March. Hate End of Innocence also HR,worst track on an otherwise solid record by IE! Give the album a few more listens Z and Cbella. It will sink its hooks into you. Incredible vox by Stu,some Halford moments,imo! Fvckin' pipes!

I also think Dystopia is quite a disappointment. It seems Stu's vocals don't have nearly the power of Matt's. He's got that crazy range but Matt just sounded so much more menacing when singing soft. Hopefully Stu and Jon gel the more they play together, and we get another Iced F*cking Earth classic within a few years. Oh, and Glorious Burden was waaay better than Dystopia.

^ya, I'm thinkin you must like Green Face and Red Baron eh?

Stu is a simply brilliant singer. Don't confuse 'power' with 'menace'...Block has power to waste and would tear ol Barlow's lungs out in a battle of the mic. But I do think highly of Barlow as well, great vocalist

You gonna hit the show in Connect the Cut, Big R?

Nah,HR,seeing it in Worcester MA,March 9. Im dd'ing for a couple of drunks who i wouldnt trust to drive me there. But anyways... Ive seen some of thier Euro show setlists,they seem to be playing only three of thier new songs,the rest is a mix of Barlow and a couple of Ripper tunes. Their playing my favorite tune,"The Hunter". Gonna be a great show,with Symphony X and LA thrashers Warbringer! See your hittin up the LaLa show. Enjoy dude!

They opened with Dystopia!
They did:
Dystopia
V
Anthem
Days of rage and
Dark city

off the new album and the rest was a mix of their most popular backlog - when the night falls, watching over me etc. We got 2 encores = 3 songs (dante's inferno, iced earth & my own saviour). I really like Block's vocals, he was amazing live!

I'd still see this band live if I got the chance just because of Stu Block. He's helped me so much with my vocals even though he has no idea lol.
