Iced Earth - The Incorruptible World Tour

  • Iced Earth

    Iced Earth

    Heavy Metal

    HEAVY METAL ISN’T A FAD. IT’S A LIFESTYLE. IT’S A COMMITMENT.

    “Iced Earth is my vehicle to write songs and to move people,” says founding member and songwriter Jon Schaffer. “That’s my thing, since the very beginning. Making records is a testament. They’ll outlive us. They’ll be here many years after I’m gone. What keeps the flame burning? I’m still hungry. I still have plenty to say as a writer. When the day comes that I feel that I have nothing left to express, well, then I’m done. Then, I’ll know it’s over. I don’t want the brand I’ve dedicated my life to, to fall to mediocrity, or worse. I want to end on a high note. That being said, the guys and I still have a lot of records left in us.”

    Indeed, after nearly three dedicated decades, Schaffer, drummer Brent Smedley, vocalist Stu Block, bassist Luke Appleton, and new guitarist Jake Dreyer have assembled the fiercest Iced Earth record since 1996 milestone The Dark Saga and 1998’s chart-blazer Something Wicked This Way Comes. Titled Incorruptible, Iced Earth’s 12th record is inspired not by things political but by things personal. Since Plagues of Babylon landed in 2014 to heaps of praise and chart-topping success, Schaffer and team have weathered proverbial storms. Management shake-ups, Schaffer’s well-publicized and very serious neck surgery—he’s since fully recovered—and lineup shifts all played positively into Incorruptible. But that wasn’t always the case.

    “The Judas Goat was the tentative title,” Schaffer reveals. “Had I focused on writing earlier, it would’ve been a much more negative and darker record. We were pretty pissed off. It was good that we calmed down. I focused on healing, and then building the HQ. It turned out positive. That’s why I called it Incorruptible. At the end of the day, no matter what I’ve gone through, my vision for Iced Earth has been incorruptible. There isn’t enough money on the planet to change why I do this. No matter the hardships, the ups and downs—things most bands wouldn’t survive through—I just don’t quit. I’m not going to give up. My integrity and my vision for the band are not for sale. We’re incorruptible.”

  • Sanctuary

    Sanctuary

    Heavy Metal

    Following the unfortunate loss of one of metal's most revered vocalists, Warrel Dane (Sanctuary, Nevermore), prior to Sanctuary's upcoming dates supporting Iced Earth across North America, the band has announced the tour will go forth as planned. The shows will act as a farewell tour in tribute to the life and memory of Dane with guest vocals for Sanctuary to be performed by Joseph Michael (Witherfall).  

    Santuary guitarist Lenny Rutledge comments: 
    Sanctuary has decided to continue on with the Iced Earth tour to pay tribute to our brother Warrel Dane. We have enlisted the help of our friend Joseph Michael from Witherfall. The set will consist of many old and some newer songs performed with the utmost respect and quality to honor our friend. Please join us in this farewell as we celebrate Warrel's musical legacy with Sanctuary. We look forward to sharing this tribute with all of you.

  • Kill Ritual

    Kill Ritual

    Metal

    Formed in 2010 by former members of Imagika, Dark Angel and Eldritch, Kill Ritual launched themselves into the metal world with their debut CD “The Serpentine Ritual” in 2012 on Scarlet Records and the band were immediately rewarded with great reviews and positive reaction from around the world. Following the initial success the band completed a US tour in the fall of 2013 and followed it up with the release of “The Eyes Of Medusa” in 2014 on Golden Core/ZYX and again received great press and accolades from fans and press worldwide. 2015 saw Kill Ritual recruiting vocalist David Reed Watson (Rage of Angels, Electric Messiah) to record their new CD "Karma Machine" after the departure of original vocalist Josh Gibson and ushered in a new direction and focus to the bands already expansive sound. The band followed the release with a full US tour in 2016 and European tour with NWOBHM legends Raven in June 2017. 2018 again sees the band releasing their new CD “All Men Shall Fall” thru Dissonance Productions with yet another new slew of touring hence bringing their definition of metal to the masses…
