|Top 10 Iced Earth Songs|
I'm a bit biased when it comes to "Dystopia", seeing how it was the song that
me into Iced Earth. But having said that, you can't deny the power of the song.
From the in your face riffage of the verses to the soaring chorus, "Dystopia"
like the Iced Earth song that has it all in the perfect amount of minutes.
riffs, powerful vocals and melodic yet heavy songwriting. What more could you
want from Iced motherfucking Earth!
I have to admit, I've kind of grown a bit tired of "Dante's Inferno" after
listened to it a million times over and over again. But I can't deny that this
a metal masterpiece of epic proportions! I can't come up with another song that
feels like such a perfect musical representation of Hell. It's so dark, it's so
it's so epic, it's Hell personified! On a side note, I also really enjoyed the
recording. I thought Stu Block did a fantastic job on it.
|3||I Died for You|
Something a bit more mellow. "I Died for You" is by no means Iced Earth's
darkest or most complex song (in fact it might be the simplest), but it doesn't
to be. Everything about this song screams emotion, and you can't but feel the
torment the protagonist in the lyrics is going through. Definitely Iced Earth's
|4||The Coming Curse|
All you need to hear is the chorus and you'll be floored. It's amazing how much
power some double bass drums, few power chords and the voice of sir. Matthew
Barlow can produce.
|5||Ten Thousand Strong|
Admittedly I'm not a huge fan of the Ripper-era Iced Earth. Not so much because
the man himself, but because I feel that the material band produced during this
period was not the Iced Earth we had had before. There's nothing wrong with
change, as long as it's for the better, and in this case it wasn't. But having
that, "Ten Thousand Strong" is one kick-ass tune man! Ripper's voice really
here and there are few songs that get me as pumped up as this one!
The Dark Saga has gone down in history as probably Iced Earth's softest album.
While true, that doesn't mean the album didn't have some total bangers as well!
Take "The Hunter", one of Iced Earth's most well-crafted songs. Everything in
song works so well: the drums, the bass, the vocals and especially the guitars.
riffs and melodies are some of Iced Earth's finest!
Horror Show was a bit of a mixed bag. It definitely had some balls to it, but it
also the point when Iced Earth started to drift away from their classic sound.
despite this, "Dracula" is an instant classic from the first time you hear it,
gets better with every listen. Its got all the typical hallmarks of an Iced
kickass riffs, soaring vocals and high energy drumming, all of which are superb.
what I really like about this song is the fact that they were able to make a
about Dracula not sound cheesy, musically or lyrically. But still the star of
is definitely Matt Barlow, showing off one of his strongest vocal performances
A bit of a curveball. Not many probably remember this superb track off the Days
Purgatory compilation. From the first time I heard the opening riff, I was
It's without a doubt a forgotten gem that every Iced Earth fan should dig up and
listen to again.
I really can't put my finger on why I love this song, I just do! May be it's the
vocals, the awesome bass playing, beautiful leads, I don't know. Whatever the
case, it's definite tune!
|10||Watching Over Me|
While it may be one Iced Earth's more "commercial" songs, it's a beautiful
a fallen friend, that tugs at your heartstrings, 'nuff said.
|one of my favourite bands man.|
|Burnt Offering, fo sure.|
|Something should be said for Burning Times, but, a very good list. I understand Dystopia is a personal thing, but I definitely agree with Dante's Inferno and I Died For You being up there.|
