From: Colin Date: October 27, 2001 at 20:52
this is probably the second best cd from iced earth (best is Something Wicked This Way Comes). not quite as good as "Something Wicked..." but damn close. i recomend this cd to anyone who is a fan of iced earth and american powermetal.

From: Damien Date: September 10, 2002 at 11:21
Not my personal favorite, but still worth adding to your collection. This time Iced Earth focuses on the monster stories we have come to know and love, and continues to beat them into the ground! Has some good stuff though. Like Dragon's Child and Damien So go on..get it..I know you want to.

From: Phineas Freak Date: October 15, 2002 at 10:58
I saw them on this tour and they crushed! Buy this album! In fact, buy ALL their albums! ICED EARTH RULES GOD DAMMIT!

From: The Fizzy One Date: October 27, 2002 at 17:58
Not as catchy or memorable as Something Wicked or Dark Saga, but still has some damn good tunes on it, in the form of "Jack," "Ghost of Freedom," "Jekyll and Hyde," and "Wolf." The female vocals in "Phantom Opera Ghost" are truly beautiful. A little dry on the production side overall, but still better than anything Nevermore would put out.

From: Fog-hat Date: December 13, 2002 at 14:29
Not as good as The Dark Saga or Something Wicked but still a great effort. I love the idea of a concept album based on the great monster villians of the movies. Iced Earth has balls just attempting such a thing. Not your average band or album. Rock on Iced Earth!!!!!

From: flamingmoth Date: May 7, 2003 at 2:19
was my first iced earth album, and after a few listens I really started to appreciate the crystalline precision of the harmonies and rhythms.. tracks like Phantom and the fast part in Dracula somehow transcend riffing...brilliant.

From: SiNMaN Date: May 27, 2003 at 21:52
Good album but its not the iced earth we were so fond of. In this album they sound nothing like they did in the other albums. Okay i love the idea they brought back old legends and myths in a form of beutifull music with double kick drums but its off. Real Iced Earth fans will be dissapointed this album doesnt come close to Dark Saga and Something wicked this way comes and even their debut album Iced Earth. Dont get me wrong this album is most likely better than any album on a shelf still a 9/10

From: Fallen Angel Date: September 18, 2003 at 3:11
What are you talking about? This album is just as good, if not better than Something Wicked, and it's a natural progression from all the other albums. I love the Blind Guardian styled vocals too. Absolutely brilliant. Not a single track that I don't like.

From: black girl Date: October 15, 2003 at 18:23
Fucking good album, especially songs Damien & Ghost of freedom. :-)

From: SIXXSWINE Date: October 31, 2003 at 19:37
What a concept? A record with the theme of Horror films & the characters in them! How metal is that? Very. This is great addition to any collection of power metal. This is essential listening, take note & pick this one up. You will not regret it. This would also be a very accessable disc to new fans to Iced Earth. I rate this one an 8.0. You might be lucky enough to score the Limited Edition version with the bomus disc. Look for it.

From: Date: November 2, 2003 at 2:13
these guys have become POSERS in europop power metal style. they should go back to the heavy days of the first album

From: STATIC-X ZONE Date: November 25, 2003 at 20:02
hey ricky if there poser metal why are you complimenting them ICED EARTH are a really good band so dont fucking make fun of them

From: Fat Freddy Date: January 14, 2004 at 22:30
Just picked up IE's new album THE GLORIOUS BURDEN yesterday and it smokes! Owens is amazing on vocals, way better than he ever was in Priest! Could this be Iced Earth's crowning achievement? A few more spins will tell the tale... excellent album!!!

From: Metal T Date: February 25, 2004 at 13:49
Cool band--but very overrated i think .

Never been really big into power/thrash/etc..., but I picked up the new Iced Earth "The Glorious Burden" and LOVED it! Looking into getting some of their previous releases featuring Matt Barlow now!

From: jason cadivida Date: April 8, 2004 at 13:57
no doubt at all these guys are good in composing music. they got the best production on this album. very tight and heavy!

From: Muchman Date: July 22, 2004 at 15:18
Wow! Great album. Schaffer's shredding guitar and Barlow's frenzy vocal delivery on "Dracula" alone makes this a Must buy. Fans of power metal and thrash should love this disc.

From: MaidenWV Date: August 1, 2004 at 19:39
Hey Metal T, You Damn right cool band. You have to see them Live to really love'em. I saw them at Pittsburg this year. They played with intensity for 2 hours for a crowd of approx. 300 people. Now that's cool.

From: MaidenWV Date: August 1, 2004 at 19:43
Damn! Christy can kick! Dummers, check-out the track "WOLF". Too bad he thinks he's funny.

From: Zejel Comp Date: August 5, 2004 at 16:49
Una joya, lo compre sin siquiera escuchar una sola pieza y ahora esta entre mi coleccion de discos preferidos se los recomiendo

From: Ben Date: September 17, 2004 at 16:59
What The Fuck? Where Is Gone The Old Good Shit Like DRACULA, PROPHECY And All The Good -OLDS- Albums, Man........ Jon Schaffer Kick Ass!!!!!!!!Fuck Poser!!!!!! Iced Earth Will GOT YOU!!!

From: Steve Date: October 25, 2004 at 7:21
This album rocks damn hard!! 'Wolf', Jack' and 'Jeckyll and Hyde' are my favourite tracks. Get this if u like Iron Maiden and Dungeon!! METAL \m/!!

From: Fog-hat Date: March 4, 2005 at 15:45
Well, I have to take back what i said about this album. After repeated listens I am now convinced this may be their best album. Strong guitars, melody, killer song writing and Barlow sings the songs with an unbelievable frenzy. A Metal album that anyone could be proud of. This sucker is as good as anything that they have done, BETTER!

From: Painkiller Date: June 10, 2005 at 6:04
Awesome. This is my 2nd favorite Iced Earth album. Of course I'm obsessed with horror, so this album's like a dream come true. Combine one of the best Metal bands in the world with Horror. Simply brilliant. 9/10

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: August 8, 2013 at 21:33
Horror Show is the last album in the golden era of Iced Earth. Even then, it doesn't move me the way Dark Saga and Something Wicked did. All the ingredients are there, but for some reason, the songs seem to lack something. All but one (the fallen-soldier ballad "Ghost Of Freedom) are inspired by classic horror movies, not exactly uncharted territory in metal. "Wolf," "Jack," "Dragon's Child" and "Dracula" are all great, but there are two long epics that seema little overblown, "Damien" sporting some weird gang-opera vocals. Also, the riffs are starting to sound rehashed. A good disc, but a step down from the last two studio albums, and a sign of the mediocrity to come.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: August 8, 2013 at 21:37
Horror Show was actually my first Icd Earth disc, although I had heard of the band for a few years, and even heard "Melancholy (Holy Martyr)" on a two-A.M. metal show on a radio station out of Richmond Virginia, circa '99. A female friend of mine with more disposable income turned me onto this disc, along with a slew of other bands I might not have discovered on my own. We've lost touch, but I think of her often, especially when I play any of the CD's she burned for me.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 16, 2014 at 19:52
This is a solid release but somehow it pales a bit if you compare it with other ones of the band...for me the best shots are tracks 1,3,4(nice)6(probably my fave of the album),8 & 9...there's an edition that brings a b/t which is an Iron Maiden song "Transylvania"...84/100
