This is the first CD that I ever owned by this band, but shorly after I hear it I went out and got 3 more, I think that says somthing about how good this CD really is. This is a unique album, the theme is all about Horror Movie (Duh) and amny of you, like me, who have never heard any Iced Earth before this will proabbaly think that the idea sounds pretty stupid. Well you would be wrong. This album is full of brilliant lyrics and a vast amount of originality.
The best song on the CD is "The Phantom of The Opera". This surpised me because out of all the songs on the list the Phantom of the Opera is the worst villian of horror. BUt this song is just so amzing with two vocalists, Matt Bartlow and some female going back and forth, and Right in the middle it gets so intense you can't help but get up and bang your head along with it.
Another really great song is "The Ghost of Freedom". For thsoe of you who own the CD Somthing Wicked This Way Comes, and the Dark Saga, this song is kind've along the lines of The 4th track on wicked and the last track on the Dark Saga, so if you like those songs this Cd will be great for you.
Tis is Iced Earth's Second best album to my Knowledge and a must if you really like Iced Earth or just good Metal.

I decided to get this album mostly because Steve DiGiorgio (one of the best bassists ever, not just metal, but period) and Richard Christy are on it.

Not being extremely well versed in all things power metal, it was one of those buy on faith deals. Anyhow, this is a very good album...brutal intensity, some beautiful melodic interludes and quite the set of pipes on the singer.

As usual, I must doff my hat to DiGiorgio, this man is the king of bass. Just listen to the chorus of Wolf and prepare to be shaken. Some absolutely ridonkulous bass playing in Dracula as well (this song has a heart rending interlude with beautiful female vocals as well). My only complaints are: not enough soloing and the bass is often too low in the mix.

But if you like this sort of metal, then by golly buy this album.

Being an avid listener of this style of music, I was slightly dissappointed with this CD. There are some really good tracks, but too much of non-memorable material. Also, I get a bit tired of the Paul Stanley (of Kiss) style vocals, but that's just me.
If you collect Ice Earth, get this now! If you are just getting into this style, maybe start with something from Rhapsody, Blind Guardian or Stratovarius instead.

This is advertised as being the 2-CD set, but it is NOT.
When it arrived, it turned out to have only a SINGLE CD.
When I wrote to Amazon.com to ask them to exchange it for the CORRECT 2-CD set that they are advertising, I was told that my only option was to send it back for a refund. But I don't want a refund, damn it, I want the product that is being advertised!!!
Having been a VERY loyal Amazon.com customer for several years, and having encouraged others to buy from Amazon.com, I HIGHLY resent having my time wasted by this false advertising (not to mention the run around that I am getting in trying to correct the problem).
I'm going to be alot less likely to order from Amazon.com in the future.

Horror Show(2001). Iced Earth's sixth studio album, and last one to feature Matt Barlow on vocals.
Ever since the dawn of the 90s, IE has been delivering numerous scorching thrash metal albums, changing styles gradually with the addition of certain bandmembers. Up until Burnt Offerings(1995), the band had been closely following the thrash/power metal stylings of their heroes (old) Metallica and Iron Maiden. Once Matt Barlow joined in on Burnt Offerings, the band finally began to develop their own style, employing both the influences of their past with a slight death metal flavor. Amazingly though, the band stays completely within the realm of thrash metal, but they adopt a fresh modern style as well, so their albums never quite sound dated. They continued to further develop their new melodic songwriting with Dark Saga(1996). However, IE finally perfect their style in 1998's Something Wicked This Way Comes. Containing all different types of thrash rockers throughout the disc, the band might have reached their peak. They even followed it with the amazing 3-disc Alive In Athens(1999).
So where does IE go from there?
Simple. Rhythm guitarist and band founder Jon Schaffer had always wanted to create a concept album with songs based on various famous monster myths, so that's exactly what he did. Now before you write this theme off as incredibly cheesy, keep in mind that they pulled off the comic book theme of Spawn in impeccable fashion on the Dark Saga album, and without any sort of campiness factor. Thankfully, it also applies here. The same lineup that adorned SWTWC is back again, and Larry Tarnowski pulls off some outstanding guitarwork here, though his presence isn't quite as prominent as it was on the previous album.

Horrow Show (2001.) Iced Earth's sixth album.
Iced Earth is an interesting band in that their career has consisted of so many unique eras. Unfortunately, with the arrival of vocalist Matt Barlow, the band entered into somewhat of an identity crisis. The albums that the band had released before the arrival of Barlow, self-titled and Night Of The Stormrider, featured an awesome neo-classic power metal sound that was difficult to top. Barlow, on the other hand, begin to take the band in more of a death metal-styled direction. This really showed on Burnt Offerings and The Dark Saga. Band leader/rhythm guitarist Jon Schaffer must have realized that the band needed to rediscover their roots, because their fifth album, 1998's Something Wicked This Way Comes, featured them returning to their roots. And this was an excellent idea. Wicked proved to be the band's strongest release in many years. And in 2001, the band followed it up with their sixth album, Horrow Show. Read on for my review.
For this album, Iced Earth serves up another concept album of sorts, but it's a little different than the kind of concept albums that you'd expect most bands to serve up. On this album, every song is about a classic monster (if the titles didn't give it away.) With these compositions, the band manages to, once again, explore a plethora of musical stylings. Like Something Wicked before it, the band combines elements of its pre-Barlow days with the death metal elements that Barlow brought into the band. The end result is a damn fine album, that is similar to the previous one, but manages to more than hold its own individuality. And also, like on the previous album, this one doesn't have a single track.
