Tribute To The Gods (2002.) An album of Iced Earth doing covers of classic hard rock/heavy metal songs.
For nearly fifteen years, Iced Earth had managed to win audiences all the world over with their own breed of neo-classic metal. When heavy metal was dying in the nineties, Iced Earth was one of the few metal bands that managed to survive. Needless to say, the band has a number of influences. And what better way to pay homage to their influences than with a tribute? On 2002's Tribute To The Gods, Iced Earth covers a number of songs by various classic hard rock and heavy metal artists. How does it measure up? Read on for my review.
It's hard to cover the classics that Iced Earth covers on this album, but they do a very good job. One of the bands that was a big time influence to Iced Earth was, of course, the British metal legends Iron Maiden. Two Maiden cuts are covered on this release, The Number Of The Beast and Hallowed Be Thy Name. Although the cover of Beast is mediocre (it sounds like Barlow is trying to mimic Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson a bit too much), the gloomy yet heavy stylings of Hallowed Be Thy Name are given new life by Iced Earth. No, this doesn't top the original, but it comes very close. The band also covered Iron Maiden's Transylvania, but that recording is only available on the bonus disc included with initial pressings of the Horrow Show album. Next up we have ACDC. On this album, the band covers It's A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock And Roll) and Highway To Hell. Once again, the band manages to cover these songs pretty well, but these versions have nothing on ACDC's originals. As much as I like Iced Earth, they're just too different a band from ACDC to truly be able to recapture the essence of their music.

If you like classic rock, or just love Iced Earth you will love this album. This album is a cover on some of the greatest bands ever to live on this earth. YOu get covers of Alice Cooper, Blue Oyster Cult, Iron Maiden, Kiss, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, And AC/Dc.
The best song on this album is the cover of the great song, Hallowed Be Thy Name by Iron Maiden. Already that song is brilliantly written and done perfect by Iced Earth addedd a little bit more of a dramatic edge to it that made me appreciate it in a diffrent way. Nothing beats that dramatic deep voice of Matt Bartlow. So believe me if you like the original you will like this.
Another one of my favorites on the album is Dead Babies by Alice Cooper. This one was actually way better then the original which surprised me because I am a huge fan of Alice Cooper, but I always felt that Dead Babies was missing somthing and Iced Earth Just seemed to know what to do to remedy that.
The third best son on there is the remak of Blue Oyster Cult's Burning For You. THis song is also much better then the original because allthough the original is a great song, Bartlow just sounds way cooler then the singer to Blue Oyser Cult.
So if what you saw makesthis Cd sound good to you buy it. This is not for people that like corny bands like MOdest Mouse or Green Day, If you like that stuff get out of here. This is for fans of Iced Earht, A lot of classic rock, and Blind Guardian and the likes. So go get it if you have good taste.

Very good cover album from the old classic rock/metal scene. I am very new to Iced Earth. So far this being my first purchase of their material, I wanted to hear some familiar tunes and see just how Iced Earth could handle it. Excellent job!! They are a convincing metal band that's been around for about a dozen years, frankly I heard about them within the last year. So that how underrated they are, they have kinda made a name for themselves since Metallica started to sing opera music. I'm impressed with the sound, very raw energy that does sound like Iron Maiden with a dash of OLD Metallica. Great stuff. The tunes "Black Sabbath" and "God of Thunder" were my least favorites, simply cause I don't like them to begin with. But Iced Earth does a pimp job the rest of the way. Cool band.

Out of the 3,000+ bands that I like it's hard for me to pick an all time favorite, but I guess Iced Earth are probably it. I love all their albums, and when I heard about a cover song cd coming out I had no doubts it would be amazing. This is without question the ONLY cover album worth owning! Whether or not you've heard Iced Earth this is a must if you love classic heavy metal! It's hard for me to pick a favorite but I guess my top 5 are... "Black Sabbath", "Dead Babies", "Number of the Beast", "Long Way to the Top(If You Wanna Rock & Roll)", and "Creatures of the Night", with the runner-ups being "Highway to Hell", "Burnin For You", and "Hallowed Be Thy Name", and "Screaming for Vengance"(yea,, its THAT HARD, this cd is THAT GOOD!) Oh my GOD these covers are so amazing! Matt Borlow does a great job singing these classics... WHY DID HE HAVE TO LEAVE THE BAND?
Incredible cd, a must for both Iced Earth fans AND classic heavy metal lovers.
