It seems crazy to cover definitive metal songs such as "Highway to Hell," "God of Thunder," and "Screaming for Vengeance" unless you are trying to redefine heavy metal, which surely isn't Iced Earth's intention. For their many young fans, however, Tribute to the Gods is a crash beginner course in headbanging history. In the early 1980s, these same Judas Priest, Kiss, and AC/DC songs first spun Iced Earth's Jon Schaffer into a vortex of metal mania. Now, his version of Iron Maiden's classic "Hallowed Be Thy Name" will surprise those who think Papa Roach only borrows riffs as a last resort. Strong on dueling midtempo guitars, the band tackles Blue Öyster Cult's "Burnin' for You" with finesse. There's a lack of energy, however, on some of the simpler songs. Inadvertently, Tribute proves Iced Earth belong with imitative second-wave bands like Accept and Helloween. --Ian Christe

This works, and it's a lot of fun. "Tribute to the Gods" is way more focused than Overkill's "Coverkill", whereas that particular album seemed to jump from... Read morePublished on Dec 31 2002 by Preying4War
This (along with with Overkill's Coverkill) has got to be the BEST set of cover's I've ever heard any band do. Read morePublished on Dec 27 2002 by Kindle Customer
Although Tribute to the Gods is an excellent cover album, that is still all it is. As well executed as this album is, I am anxiously awaiting Iced Earth's next original release. Read morePublished on Dec 19 2002 by C. Wallace
That's right, this is the best CD I've heard in a VERY long time. Plus, I got it from the "used" section of a music store, so that makes it doubly awesome! Read morePublished on Dec 3 2002 by J. R. Norton
