Who opened the gates of Hell and let this album out???
ICED EARTH, that's who. Take it from me, this is not for the weak at heart. But for the those who can take it(Die-hard fans, please rise) here is my review.
1.Burnt Offerings-We start with an Exorcist-like musical intro, the song borrowing an excerpt from the movie "Bram Stoker's Dracula": "I WAS BETRAYED, LOOK WHAT YOUR GOD HAS DONE TO ME!" And then, BOOM! Dark, heavy riffs, played in symphonic rhythmn, until midway through the song where an evil tone is presented, with bass and harpsichord, then back to fast paced action. Vintage Iced Earth.
2.Last December-This song is rather short compared to the other songs.(not including "The Pierced Spirit")I like the intro to this song; it's cold and remorseless, yet somewhat mellow. The song deals with the suicide of a young man and his girlfriend, and the misunderstanding of their parents not wanting them together. Pretty much mid-tempo throughout the song. Did'nt like it before, but it grew on me.
3.Diary-My favorite song on this album next to Dante's Inferno. Probably the catchiest song, too. I always thought this was about Dracula, and his search for a perfect companion. Ranges from fast to mid-tempo to slow to fast again, just like much of the other songs on here.
4.Brainwashed-Lyrics on this song are pretty contraversial. They deal with blasphemy, and so forth. Barlow sounds pretty angry on here. My least favorite song on the album.
5.Burning Oasis-Love the intro on here, and the Halford-like wails are what you'll remember on it. The song deals with Adam and Eve and the burning of Eden. Love the drumming at the end of this song.
6.Creator Failure-Schaffer sounds particularly good on here, his riffs are extra brutal.

This has to be Iced Earth's Darkest album, the music itself has an eerie heavy feel, as well as the lyrics. Jon Schaffer's lyrics on this album are dark and gloomy, with him dealing with hard times from the record company, along with a few dark fantasy songs in it as well, which some are about Vampires in the night, lovers killing themselves because they cannot be together in life, and a trip through Hell. With long complex songs, and different layers of music from galloping shredding rythm guitars, to eerie keyboards for a fresh sounding atmosphere, to acoustic guitar passage that adds a unique sound then the previous Iced Earth records. Matt Barlow also was a great choice for a vocalist, from deep death metal like growls to high pitch screams; he is possibly Iced Earth's best vocalist as one who is not a fan of the "Glorious Burden" might say. This would be a perfect place to start for people who are just getting into Iced Earth and an essential to people who are already Iced Earth fans.

Burnt Offerings (1995.) Iced Earth's third album.
Iced Earth had been around as early as the late eighties, but didn't release their first full-length album (self-titled) until 1991, and even then, the band continued to have problems. Following the recording of their first album, the band was forced to part ways with singer Gene Adams - his vocal stylings weren't what band leader/rhythm guitarist Jon Schaffer had in mind for the band. He was replaced by the much better Jon Greely for 1992's Night Of The Stormrider, but proved to be tough to get along with, so he too was expelled from the band. The band was about to disband, but fortunately, that didn't happen. Schaffer found new vocalist Matt Barlow, and the band recorded a third album - Burnt Offerings. How does the band's third album measure up? Read on and find out.
One of the most interesting things about Iced Earth's first three albums is that each one has a different vocalist - this makes the three albums similar, yet different - and this only adds to their overall quality as a whole, in my opinion. With Matt Barlow at the helm, the band shifts itself in a considerably more death metal-styled sound. The vast majority of this album sounds like a cross between Metallica (eighties and nineties alike) combined with death metal. This makes for a rather interesting listening experience. The title track opens the album. Here melodic and heavy stylings alike are fused together for roughly seven minutes of pure excellence. Night Of The Stormrider proved that the band could combine the styles very well, and this track only backs up that claim. For the vast majority of the album, we get a series of death metal rockers that, while mostly alike, manage to maintain a sense of individuality.

4.5 stars. The only two songs here that don't live up to the inspired level of the rest of the album are the songs "Diary" and "Burning Oasis." "Diary" is intricate and masterfully played but it just never takes off, leaving an impression more of musicianship than of striking an emotional chord. While "Burning Oasis" is good but eventually forgettable. Now for the tons of praise that this album deserves. "Burnt Offerings" is a fantastic blast of power which every opening song should have. "Last December" is probably the most underrated track here while "Brainwashed" continues the fury initiated by the opening song. "Creator Failure" is an exceptional track and near its end Matthew Barlow finally hits those high registers with some awesome results. "The Pierced Spirit" is a solid ballad with piano and background winds and is certainly the calm before the storm. "Dante's Inferno" is undeniably the masterpiece here with incredible lyrical imagery and superb songwriting. This is easily one of my favorite Iced Earth studio creations. It is both inspired and sinister, which makes for a memorable combination. Take it easy.
