ICED EARTH Finishes Recording New Album “Plagues Of Babylon”Thursday, 8th August 2013
North American metallers ICED EARTH have finished recording their new album, Plagues Of Babylon, for a January 2014 through 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!”
ICED EARTH recently parted ways with sticksman Brent Smedley for “personal family reasons” and has since been replaced by Raphael Saini (CHAOSWAVE).
ICED EARTH have been relentless 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.
Dystopia was released in October 2011 via Century Media Records. The CD marked the band’s recording debut with singer Stu Block (INTO ETERNITY), who joined ICED EARTH in March 2011 following the departure of Matt Barlow.
