Somthing Wicked This way comes is a cd that I have been looking forward to purchasing for awhile now. I already owned Horror Show, the Dark Saga, and Tribute to the Gods. I love thes cd's and almost everything on them.There style is so unique and fun espeacially when they give time for people to hear the amazing vocals of Matt Bartlow. I felt that in this album he did not show his very best work. He seemed to ruch out his lyrics on a lot of the album and somtimes in verged on the sound of a lot of talentless "singers" out there that just shout or growl out an entire album.
Don't get me wrong, this album had a lot of strong points and I would defiently reccomend this album to any Iced Earth Fan because even with a few bad tracks this cd still kicks but. This album seems to have a little but of a religious theme, with a lot of songs about angels, jesus, corrupt priests and of course the anti-christ.
One of the best things on this album is the fourth song. THis song is for all the people that are big fans of the songs like Ghost of Freedom, and A question of Heave.It is about a guy who lost his freind but now he feels his angel guiding him through hard times. It is very good, and can be intense at some moments, which is somthing I love when listening to music.
So agian I Definitly reccomend this cd, just make sure that you buy Dark Saga and Horor Show First.

5.0 out of 5 stars A teriffic ride from beginning to end July 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
Iced Earth are one of the best bands in current American metal. I bought their 2001 album, Horror Show, not too long ago, and it blew me away. Some people argue that all the power ballads are too much. I deeply disagree, I think it's a pretty gutsy thing to do all those ballads (6 on this album to be exact.) The highlights of this album are the first three tracks, as well as the final three, which are known as the "Something Wicked Trilogy." The first three tracks are "Burning Times," "Melancholy (Holy Martyr)," and "Disciples of the Lie." The "Something Wicked Trilogy" consists of "Prophecy," "Birth of the Wicked," and "Coming Curse," which is another example of why Iced Earth always closes albums with style. Let's explain these 6 highlights.
"Burning Times" opens the album with a bang. Though not particularly fast, it is punishingly heavy, and it has a great riff that draws the listener in. "Melancholy (Holy Martyr)" is Iced Earth's third best ballad (the only ones that are better are "Dracula" and "I Died For You".) "Disciples of the Lie" is even heavier than "Burning Times," and it's also about twice as fast. "Prophecy," "Birth of the Wicked," and "Coming Curse" tell one large story over three songs. The story is very gripping, and "Coming Curse" is nearly ten minutes long. All the rest of the tracks are good, too. So if you are looking for a great power metal record, or want to get into Iced Earth, then this and/or Horror Show is a good start.

5.0 out of 5 stars The all-important return to normalcy album June 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
Something Wicked This Way Comes (1998.) Iced Earth's fifth 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, features them returning to them. Was this a smart move? Read on for my review.
The return to normalcy for Iced Earth proved to be the smartest move of their career up to the time. With Something Wicked This Way Comes, the band manages to return to the melodic power rock sound that they created on 1992's Night Of The Stormrider, but at the same time manages to fuse it together with the death metal-style influence of Matt Barlow. The end result is Iced Earth's strongest album in many years. New guitarist Larry Tarnowski is no slouch in the quality department either. I had my doubts that this guy would be able to live up to the incredibly high standards of his predecessor, but he manages to do it nonetheless. Through the course of the album, the band manages to serve up a variety of excellent songs. The songs range from all-out death metal thrash rockers to slower, melodic ballads, and everything in between.

5.0 out of 5 stars Iced Earth's best May 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album is a must-have for every Power-Metal fan. With "Something Wicked This Way Comes" IE successfully proved that they are one of the best (if not THE best) Power-Metal bands in America.
Here Jon Schaffer's excellent songwriting merges perfectly with Matthew Barlow's killer-voice.
The disk is packed with highlights: "Burning Times", the opener, is a straight rocker and immediately caught my attention when I first listened to it. It is followed by "Melancholy", IE's arguably most famous track to date. "Watching Over Me" is a heartfelt song about a deceased friend of Schaffer's, and features a great sing-along-chorus. The next top-track is "My Own Savior", note the powerful bass and rhythm-guitar work (this song being pure HEAVY-METAL).
IE's most recent effort ("The Glorious Burden") features 2 songs about the American War of Independence. On "SWTWC" there's an instrumental dealing with the same topic: "1776". Schaffer said he didn't dare trying to explore this historical setting on a lyrical level, so he concentrated fully on the music, with success.
"Blessed Are You" is another "Power-Ballad"-style track with superb guitar-solo.
The CD is concluded by the "Something Wicked"-trilogy (consisting of the tracks "Prophecy", another example of Schaffer's rhythm-guitar prowess, "Birth Of The Wicked", an awesome heavy song, and finally "The Coming Curse", which starts with a one minute piano-intro and then starts rockin' like hell.).
As mentioned before, if you think you're into Power-Metal, you better own this or get it. Soon.
