Iced Eath is simpily awesome! And this disc really surprise me ! it's a must have disc. I'm sure Iced Earth will be the future for the fan of Megadeth and Metallica. So Enjoy this disc

From: Colin Date: October 27, 2001 at 20:49
best iced earth cd there is!!! i like the Something Wicked trilogy a lot, this cd is a must have! 10 out of 10!

From: Date: December 7, 2001 at 16:25
This is metal in true fasion! As the shirt says,"FUCK POSERS!"

From: Damien Date: September 10, 2002 at 11:27
This is more like the classic Iced Earth then their new stuff. The first 10 tracks serve as some what of a prelude to the final 3. Not that that's a bad thing but compared to the last three tracks they almost suck. The trilogy at the end kicks major ass! Melancholy is another good one. In short BUY THIS CD!!!

From: Fog-hat Date: December 13, 2002 at 14:17
A truly great album. It's the kind that grows on you with each listen. Iced Earth combines the best of the 80's with the best of the 90's. This CD puts most of the Nu-metal and Rap-metal to shame. If you like Jag Panzer, Iron Maiden or Manowar you should like this band. Rock on Iced Earth!

From: SrFloppy5 Date: January 11, 2003 at 12:54
Molan las pares, pero es un metal extremadamente sencillo. Estructuras tipo nirvana: estrofa lenta, estribillo potente. Hay muchas canciones q son iguales (2,4,6). Aún así, es catchy, especialmente por la voz. LAs partes trash me rallan más. La última song está inacabada?

From: Mshistick Date: January 22, 2003 at 4:28
iced earth is one of the greatest bands today can easily compit with iron maiden. This cd rocks , buy it now !

From: Rycheage Date: April 1, 2003 at 1:21
Excellent power metal which could rival Metallica. "Burning Times" rocks.

From: SiNMaN Date: June 8, 2003 at 11:25
Errr "Power metal that could rival metallica" Lmfao @ that i cant help commenting on this. Neither group is a Power Metal band. Metallica started as speed/thrash and slowly went into the progressive classical direction. Iced Earth are proggresive/classical with some glimpses of Thrash. WTF does power metal have to do with this?

From: Y2Clay Date: July 12, 2003 at 22:00
I heard Melancholy on Live 365 and got the disc - Love it!!! IT ROCKS !!!!!

From: LudwigVonSilver Date: August 28, 2003 at 22:25
You are the one who apperantly knows nothing SiNMaN, Iced Earth is and forever will be one of todays true Power Metal bands. mettalica never was power metal they arent good enough for the name...Iced Earth has and always will keep up with the true metal they have been playing...you wont see them turn to the shit that metallica has become. This CD is one of a kind, it is a must have for all true metal fans, FOREVER METAL!!

From: > Date: August 28, 2003 at 22:27

PERFECT, There's Nothing Else To Say

From: Ghostofwar Date: January 24, 2005 at 10:06
This is the album that got me hooked to Iced Earth! Were in the hell is Night of the Stormrider?

From: Metal T Date: February 28, 2005 at 17:46
...Imagine "Burning Times" with Owens' on vocals.Hopefully,Iced Earth will release a live record with "Ripper" at the helm . ----

From: GABO Date: March 23, 2005 at 16:40
I like this album a lot, is a mix between trash, power and classic metal with ballads, very good.

From: Painkiller Date: June 10, 2005 at 5:59
Iced Earth's 3rd best album. This album is very broad in it's uses of metal styles. In this album they cram their ideas into one, and the result is definitely something wicked. 8/10.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: August 8, 2013 at 21:14
This is definitely This is the ultimate Iced Earth disc. Thrashier than Dark Saga, but with the same melodic sense that wasn't consistently there on earlier albums. Many IE classics are held within, including the stomping opener "Burning Times," "Melancholy," "Watching Over Me," "Stand Alone," "My Own Savior," and yes, another trilogy at the end. The track sequence tends to follow a heavy-soft alternating pattern, which might seem to break the flow a little bit, but that's a small matter. Just an all-around great CD.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 5, 2014 at 12:12
A solid release...this band is one of the best around without any shadow of a doubt...best shots in here for me are 1,4(one of the "hit single" of them),5,8,11,12 & 13...87/100
