Iced Earth Walk Among You

American metal act Iced Earth is back with the release of two new EPs in Hellrider and I Walk Among You, on ROAR! Rock Of Angels.

The EPs will include rare recordings from the transition phase between singer Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens and predecessor/successor Matt Barlow in 2007 and 2008, a particularly exciting and eventful period for fans of Iced Earth’s band history.
The Hellrider EP consists of the songs ‘Prophecy’, ‘Birth Of The Wicked’ and ‘The Coming Curse’, originally from the album Something Wicked This Way Comes (1998), voted one of the best power metal records of all time by Metal Hammer. In late summer 2007, all three tracks were rerecorded, featuring Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens – It was produced by Jon Schaffer and Jim Morris, engineered and mixed by Jim Morris, with cover art by Monte Moore and Roy Young, layouts by Roy Young.

 I Walk Among You includes the studio tracks ‘Setian Massacre’, ‘A Charge To Keep’ and ‘The Clouding’ from the 2007 album Framing Armageddon (Something Wicked Part I), that were remixed and remastered in 2008 and feature the recently-returned Matt Barlow. In addition, there are the live tracks ‘Dark Saga’, ‘Pure Evil’ and ‘Iced Earth’, cut at the 2008 Graspop Metal Meeting and also featuring Barlow – Produced by Jon Schaffer and Jim Morris, engineered and mixed by Jim Morris, with cover art by Sun Khamunaki, and layouts by Roy Young.

Both EPs will be released on 28th April, on various vinyl formats and will also be released as a two-in-one digipack CD and 2LP picture disc combo.

Iced Earth commented “Before now, these releases hadn’t been issued on anything other than CD. Now they’ve been remastered, with new artwork, new mastering, new formats on vinyl, picture disc, and they’ll be available for digital download for the first time.”

Digital single ‘Prophecy – 2007 Rerecorded’ is now available across all digital and streaming platforms, and you can also check out the video for it here at RAMzine.
