    Incorruptible

    Pressed On 2x 180-Gram Vinyl


    Housed In A Gatefold Sleeve & Contains An LP-Booklet And Double-Sided Inlay


    Etching On Side D (No Music)


    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.


    Written primarily by Schaffer over the course of several months - a process he calls "typical"- Incorruptible finds Iced Earth pivoting off everything they've learned-going all the way back to 1990's Iced Earth-to come away with an album that feels and sounds superlatively heavy metal. And definitely like Iced Earth.


    From the Viking-inspired power of opener 'Great Heathen Army' to the epic pirate-inspired 'Black Flag' to the aggression of 'Seven Headed Whore', based on the Whore of Babylon, Incorruptible bestows upon its listeners a ceaseless supply of killer riffs, a cavalcade of righteous vocals, a storm of drums, and continuous volleys of jaw-dropping solos.


    Certainly, after 27 years of releasing albums and 666 minutes-or thereabouts-of music, the multi-national band, with Schaffer at the helm, show no signs of slowing down, getting old, or venturing off the deep end.


    With a new lineup reconfigured, a newly completed Iced Earth headquarters to call home, a new record in ready for hails and headbangs, all powered by Schaffer's indestructible drive and infinite engine, it's clear Iced Earth are making 2017 their banner year. Songs like 'Clear the Way', 'Black Flag', 'Raven Wing', 'Ghost Dance (Awaken the Ancestors)', and 'Great Heathen Army' are destined for the halls of heavy metal greatness. In fact, Incorruptible is special. A contemporary classic. A legendary record barely out of the gate. It just feels like a record of import.

    Burnt Offerings

    Burnt Offerings is the third studio album by American heavy metal band Iced Earth. It was the group's first album since 1991's Night of the Stormrider, after which the band took a three year layoff. During this time they recruited drummer Rodney Beasley and singer Matthew Barlow, replacing Rick Secchiari and John Greely, respectively. Burnt Offerings has been described as the Iced Earth's heaviest and darkest record.

    Horror Show

    Horror Show is the sixth studio album from the American heavy metal band Iced Earth, originally released June 26, 2001. It is a theme album based on classic monsters and horror-movie icons, including Dracula, Frankenstein, and the ghost from Phantom of the Opera. It was the first Iced Earth album to feature drummer Richard Christy, and the only album to feature Steve DiGiorgio on bass, though he did not tour with the band.


    Horror Show is usually considered Iced Earth's only straightforward power metal release, as little of the thrash metal influence from the band's earlier works is present. This album also featured more prominent usage of Matt Barlow's multi-layered vocals as a center point for the songs.

    Days Of Purgatory

    Days of Purgatory is perhaps the best starting point for anyone first discovering Iced Earth, as it presents much of the band's early material with superior sound quality and musicianship, most notably from vocalist Matthew Barlow. All aspects of the band's songwriting are presented herein: energetic staccato riffing, dual-guitar harmonies, melodic acoustic passages, complex arrangements, and double kick drums. These are combined most effectively on Colors, Nightmares, When the Night Falls, and the outstanding Desert Rain, with its atmospheric guitar intro. And while Angel's Holocaust features uncharacteristic goth-style background choruses, The Funeral is surprisingly memorable as an instrumental. The band is at its inventive best in the nine-minute epic Travel in Stygian.

    Something Wicked This Way Comes

    After the success of The Dark Saga, many were curious to see what steps Iced Earth would take to further elevate their position within the metal scene. There were many expectations about the new album, and of course, Iced Earth did not disappoint. They turned out yet another acclaimed album containing something old, something new, and most definitely something wicked. With thirteen tracks, Something Wicked This Way Comes is a roller-coaster ride which showcases Iced Earth's talent in many different forms. Ranging from the crushingly dark and heavy Disciples of the Lie to the heartfelt and introspective Watching Over Me, Something Wicked is bound to please both longtime fans and new listeners. The highlight of the album is another album-ending trilogy, entitled Something Wicked. Taking some musical cues from the Stormrider era and merging them with the newest Iced Earth sound, Something Wicked weaves a mysterious tale of prophecy, conspiracy, and the history of mankind. This powerful composition is a prelude to a future Iced Earth album, but even on its own, it stands as a masterful piece of work. To any metal fans who feel a void in their collection, it will be filled the day that Something Wicked comes to you.

    Dystopia (Awaiting Repress)

    Iced Earths 10th studio offering, Dystopia, while not a concept album, founder Jon Schaffer admits there are unifying themes to several of the songs, and even an appearance by band mascot Set Abominae. In much the same way Horror Show (the bands tribute to classic characters from literature and movies) was born, band leader John Schaffer said his interest in dystopian themes in music and movies led him to try his hand at that genre as well, even paying homage on the new album to the movies Dark City, V For Vendetta and Soylent Green. The end result is Iced Earth meets the nightmarish offspring of Brave New World and Blade Runner.

    Infernus

    Regarding the new track, HATE ETERNAL founder Erik Rutan comments: This song, 'The Stygian Deep' has a very compelling and intriguing energy to it, dynamic and expanded yet aggressively rooted in the tradition of HATE ETERNAL. A very black mysterious journey that develops through many passages as you listen. A musical landscape of much depth and darkness.


    The American death metal legend has previously unveiled the spectacular artwork for 'Infernus', which was created by renowned artist Eliran Kantor (ATHEIST, TESTAMENT, ICED EARTH, SODOM).


    Main man Erik Rutan comments on 'Infernus': The recording process has been fantastic. I have never felt so focused and determined on a HATE ETERNAL record, and I know that this will be an album our listeners and supporters will truly appreciate. It represents an important milestone for me personally since 15 years ago both HATE ETERNAL began recording its first album and Mana Recording Studios was born. We have so much more news to share with you over the coming months. We are super proud of what we have accomplished creatively, and excited at the prospect of releasing what we feel is our most powerful HATE ETERNAL material to date.

    Ices

    Ices is a celebration of flight, levity, and the conviction that you can leave earth. You take wing in an airplane, you go to real places when you dream, you have out-of-body experiences, you get high, you lose yourself in someone else.


    When we started work on these songs, I was beginning a gradual move to California, constantly traveling back and forth from New York. I was experimenting. I was falling in love. Our studio in the Hudson Valley was full of electronics and computers and the sounds of future ships sailing through the vastness of space, and I sometimes forgot where I was. The first songs we wrote were called flying 1, then flying 2, and so on, which eventually evolved into songs on the album. Flight became a metaphor for the ignition of the imagination. The process created a lightness in me, a freedom and positive energy that I'd never before felt or explored.


    This recording session became a two year music and spiritual retreat with my psychic twin brother, Eliot. A private journey during which we abandoned old habits and familiar sounds. We got really geeky and experimented in our studio. We obsessed over sympathetic magic, Ancient Aliens, and the NBA. We allowed everything we loved to find its way in: Persian percussion, hip-hop beats, lo-fi, hi-fi, Pakistani pop, Link Wray, Jason Pierce, gospel, dub. We developed new systems; we worked with synthesis, software, and samples; we became producers. The Hudson Valley was home base, but I wanted to keep flying. I wrote songs in California, recorded vocals in Atlanta, and worked with Clams Casino in Brooklyn. For the first time, Lia Ices felt like an inclusive project with its own identity, not just a name.


    Ices as a whole is devoted to these certainties. While we have evolved, we are still animals. We respond to planets, patterns, and cycles. We require the sounds of our origins. We live in the future but stay bound to the primitive and primordial. We will always want tribe, we will always want rhythm, we will always need music to guide us into our deepest sense of what it means to be human. So we hear sounds from all over the planet in this album. We devour so much music, and with this album we allowed ourselves to claim bits from all of it.

    When Swedish drummer Martin Lopez (ex-OPETH, AMON AMARTH) joined forces with metal bassist extraordinaire Steve DiGiorgio (SADUS,
    TESTAMENT, DEATH, ICED EARTH), vocalist Joel Ekelöf and guitarist Kim Platbarzdis in a brand new project called SOEN, it was obvious that this
    collaboration would not be just another name-dropping, substance-deprived "super project".


    Martin Lopez has described the band's music as melodic, heavy, intricate and different. Even then, Lopez may be selling his band short. SOEN is, in a
    word, unique.


    More than just a sum of is rather esteemed parts, SOEN weave an intricate network of melodies and lull the listener submerged in a bliss of melancholy.

    No Matter What

    To deny reality is to create conict, he always tells us. No one knows how it happened, or when - but here in the last
    known metropolis on Earth, where all public memory has been erased, Evan Ønly is on a mission to recover the promise
    of our future. He works among other maverick scientists, artists, and revolutionaries in shadow, intent on piecing
    together our shattered history. It was mass denial that led us to the state we're in, Ønly is on a mission to prevent us
    from making the same mistake.


    His material draws inspiration from the classic "future vintage" synth pop he discovered through his archival
    explorations. His work is evocative of British pioneers Pet Shop Boys, La Roux, and David Bowie's "Let's Dance". The
    debut Evan Ønly EP, No Matter What, is a highly-evolved synth rock record. Produced by Ice Choir's Kurt Feldman at
    the pristine Winter Station, these rst six songs are personal anthems turned psychological pop. Ønly creates music in
    the belief that pop can still change the way we see ourselves and the world - the one we've inherited and the ones we'll
    build next.

    Lazarus (Original Cast Recording) (On Sale)

    Lazarus, the musical presented by the New York Theater Workshop in December 2015 and January 2016, was written by David Bowie and Enda Walsh. The show opened to phenomenal critical acclaim. The New York Times raved Ice-cold bolts of ecstasy shoot like novas through the glamorous muddle and murk of Lazarus, the great-sounding, great-looking and mind-numbing new musical, while Rolling Stone hailed it as a Surrealistic Tour de Force... milk-swimming, lingerie-sniffing, gin-chugging theater at its finest. Lazarus is based on the classic sci-fi novel The Man Who Fell to Earth by Walter Tevis. The musical includes both re-worked material from Bowie's iconic catalogue alongside brand new music.


    This collection includes the full cast and band of the original New York production with their versions of the David Bowie songs from the show as the Lazarus Cast Album. The album was produced by the show's musical director Henry Hey, who had previously worked with Bowie on The Next Day and features vocals from actors Michael C. Hall, Sophia Anne Caruso, Cristin Milioti, Michael Esper and other cast members backed by the seven-piece house band Hey assembled for the New York run. The album was recorded January 11, 2016. Upon arriving at the studio, the musicians and cast were shocked and saddened to learn that Bowie had passed away the evening before. Their emotional performances that day are captured on this recording.


    The production of Lazarus in New York also timed with the January, 2016 release of the David Bowie's final studio album . Included alongside the cast's interpretations of classics from his canon of material are the three final David Bowie studio recordings. Co-produced by Bowie and Tony Visconti and recorded with Donny McCaslin and his quartet, the same band that played on Bowie's album, these last three songs No Plan, Killing A Little Time, When I Met You bring completely new dimensions to their cast counterparts. The original version of Lazarus is also included on the Lazarus Cast Album.


    Lazarus is based on the classic sci-fi novel The Man Who Fell to Earth by Walter Tevis. The 1976 film starred Bowie himself as a hollow-eyed humanoid alien (this was during Bowie's Thin White Duke phase) who comes to the earth in search of water for his drought-ridden home planet. While Lazarus marked Bowie's first time scoring a stage show, he was no stranger to the world of theatre. His 1979 performance in the Tony-winning The Elephant Man drew rapturous responses from the critics, while of course his myriad musical personas have all had a strong theatrical streak.

    Mind Control (Out Of Stock)

    Import


    Mind Control (their third full-length album) is set for release in April 2013, following their two debut London sell-out concerts at The Garage. Within it's blood soaked grooves you will hear shocking tales of bizarre desert ceremonies, religious brainwashing and drug inspired mass slaughter!


    Imagine the original Alice Cooper band jamming in a cell with early Black Sabbath and the Stooges, whilst sitting on murder charges and you may get a glimpse into their fuzzed up world of exploding tube amps and cymbal smashing mayhem. However, this enticing act of musical manipulation is merely the icing upon a very sick cake. Mind Control is a concept album with a theme that makes the acts and intentions of the likes of Charles Manson and Jim Jones seem like petty crimes. What makes Mind Control scarier than most albums is that it doesnt seem as sinister on the surface as it really is deep down within the core of its black acid-drenched world of pain and torture.


    The infectious energy surges and pulverizing grooves of Mind Crawler, tell the tale of a man on a mission who has fled from Mount Abraxas after mercilessly murdering all the members of his cult. He rides his motorcycle through the gates of hell and hijacks the weak minds of yet more foolish disciples to join him in his desert hideaway. This is when the real fun and terror truly commences...


    There was no escaping the chained-to-the brain hooks and melodies of first single from the album, Poison Apple, but this was merely a trailer for the real hellish delights now to be bestowed upon the earth. Recorded at the legendary Chapel Studios over an autumnal full moon using the finest western electrical technology, engineer Jim Spencer (Bert Jansch, Robert Wyatt) has perfectly captured the bands live sound of saturated fuzz, mind-bending riffs and 60's vocal harmonies. A wider range of influences can be heard from both music and cinema, but their founding principle of presenting light and darkness still remains. Simple and ragged in all its low life glory, Mind Control is the ultimate expose of killer cult madness and mind manipulation.
