ICED EARTH “Burnt Offerings” /Ltd. Special Edition Digisleeve 2CD/
zoom Zoom image

Special Edition remastered re-release of the third full-length album by legendary American Power/Thrash Metal band.
After a three year absence, Iced Earth comes back with a vengeance. Once again, the third album brings a third singer and third drummer. In order to match the unique music, all Iced Earth vocalists have had the ability to growl, scream, and sing. Matthew Barlow also throws incredible power and emotion into the mix. This is Iced Earth's heaviest album, but it still retains powerful symphonic sounds and heart-twisting acoustic passages. It also has all sorts of song structures, time changes, and cool stuff packed everywhere.
The album was written during angry times - and it shows. "Burnt Offerings" has been described as the Iced Earth's heaviest and darkest record. Rhythm guitarist and main songwriter Jon Schaffer has said that the heaviness of the songs were a result of his frustration with the music industry. The album starts with a spoken line from the 1992 movie "Dracula". Schaffer's frustration is particularly evident in the title track, which talks about the problems the band had to endure during its downtime, and throughout their careers. Known for their uncompromising defense of Epic Classic Metal, the band gets right back to work with the surprising mix of soft piano tinklings, chorused vocals, double kick drums, and crushing guitars. Remarkably, it all seems to work, and while his ultra-dramatic vocal style occasionally verges on the absurd, resourceful new vocalist Matthew Barlow ultimately carries the day on such standout tracks as "Creator Failure" and "Brainwashed".
Iced Earth had some long songs on the previous albums, but on this one they show their ability to create a full-fledged epic. "Dante's Inferno" clocking in at 16 minutes and 26 seconds. It's based on the Inferno -segment of Dante Alighieri's epic poem, the "Divine Comedy".
While Metal fans will always look to Metallica and Slayer as the kings of Thrash Metal and their early releases as the epitome of the genre, "Burnt Offerings" will always remain an underrated, yet rightful candidate for one of the best Thrash albums of all time! Excellent rapid-fire instrumentation with flares of melody, majestic and dark vocals, and masterful storytelling make this album an unrecognized classic!! Classic Metal - this is what Iced Earth is all about, take it or leave it!!!
