On Friday Iced Earth Streaming New Song Online was a top story. Here is the recap: Iced Earth are giving fans a taste of their upcoming album by streaming the title track "Dystopia" online.
Iced Earth 10th studio album, Dystopia, is set for release October 18th. Fans can now stream the title track here.
Although Dystopia is not a concept album, founder Jon Schaffer admits there are unifying themes to several of the songs - and even an appearance by band mascot "Set Abominae." "I've always been fascinated by the darker side of life," Schaffer said. "Movies like Metropolis, Brazil, and The Matrix resonate with me. The same for albums like 2112, The Wall, and of course Operation:Mindcrime. Their images of a soulless, repressive society stuck with me over the years. It must be the sci-fi fan in me." - more on this story
