CD Review: Iced Earth-Plagues of Babylon(Release January 21st, 2014)Century Media

There are albums you hear and you know in five years time that you will still be able to listen to it , this is one of those albums.
This is timeless Heavy Metal and some great music has been put out by this band for many years, I have been lucky enough to have been able to review their last album and this one.
There are some great songs on this album too many to mention but my personal favorite is "The End?" it comes in at 7:15 minutes and this is some classic Heavy Metal songwriting dare I even say that it compares to some early Iron Maiden?
The riffs here are classic riffs that one would expect from a band with their history and the follow up with the vocals and the band as a whole should be proud of this album they have clearly spent many hours getting the sound just right.
They are heading out to support this album and I am going to do what I can to support this tour!

There is a consistency with this band and their sound and for that I applaud them-there are so many bands that feel the need to re-invent themselves and a good number of times they fall flat on their face.
Here is their video for the title track "Plagues Of Babylon"

Thank you for reading this
