ICED EARTH Live Footage From Birmingham Concert Now StreamingMonday, 13th January 2014
Fan-filmed footage of ICED EARTH’s live concert at 02 Academy in Birmingham, England on January 12 has surfaced and may be viewed below. Jon Dette (SLAYER, TESTAMENT, ANTHRAX) is sitting behind the drum kit for ICED EARTH’s current European headlining tour, taking over for Raphael Saini, who filled in during the summer 2013 festivals, the recording of ICED EARTH’s new album, and the club leg of the VOLBEAT tour.
Dette made his live debut with ICED EARTH on November 6, 2013 at O2 World in Berlin, Germany after ICED EARTH parted ways with drummer Brent Smedley for personal family reasons last year.
ICED EARTH will release their new studio album Plagues Of Babylon on January 21 via Century Media Records. The CD was recorded at Principal Studios (KREATOR, IN EXTREMO, GRAVE DIGGER) in Senden, Germany and was mixed at NHow Studios in Berlin, Germany. Guest vocals on the track “Highwayman” were laid down by VOLBEAT frontman Michael Poulsen and SYMPHONY X/ADRENALINE MOB singer Russell Allen. Guest vocals on “Plagues Of Babylon”, “Among The Living Dead”, “Democide”, “Resistance” and “If I Could See You” are by BLIND GUARDIAN vocalist Hansi Kürsch. The cover and additional artwork was created by Eliran Kantor (TESTAMENT, ATHEIST, HATEBREED).
ICED EARTH will promote the forthcoming album on their North American headlining “Worldwide Plagues Tour”, which kicks off April 4 with SABATON and REVAMP to support.
