ICED EARTH: Mixing Process Begins For “Plagues Of Babylon”

Friday, 16th August 2013

American melodic metal crew ICED EARTH have entered into the mixing phase for their forthcoming album, Plagues of Babylon. The album is due January 2014 via Century Media Records.

Says ICED EARTH guitarist/mainman Jon Schaffer: “There’s quite a selection of epic heaviness on your way, for release early next year.

“We arrived in Sweden and are heading on to Portugal for a few festivals, and then on Monday, we start the mix!”

Songtitles set to appear on Plagues Of Babylon (among others):

* Plagues of Babylon
* Democide
* Among The Living Dead
* The Resistance
* If I Could See You
* Peacemaker
* Cthulhu
* Parasite

ICED EARTH recently parted ways with drummer Brent Smedley for “personal family reasons.” He has since been replaced by Raphael Saini (CHAOSWAVE).

ICED EARTH has been hitting it relentlessly, with the recent studio album, Dystopia, being the most toured album in the band’s illustrious history.

One of the many highlights of the “World Dystopia Tour”, a headline show at the historic Kourion Amphitheatre in Cyprus, was recently released on Blu-ray, DVD and in many other formats under the title Live In Ancient Kourion.
