Something Wicked This Way Comes (Century Media)
By: Jeb Branin
I don't have a clue what got into this band, but I like it! ICED EARTH's previous work has ranged from fair to truly lousy, but on this new release they have captured a new magic. Their foundation remains the same it has always been; hard as nails power metal, but onto that base they have constructed a fresher sound. Stronger melodies, memorable hooks, sharper guitars and more accomplished vocals are now part of the arsenal. Obviously the band have thrown everything they have into this recording and it has paid off in spades. This is miles beyond anything, and everything, they have done before.
