|A good covers album by one of the best Metal bands around. Nothing to write home about, but Jon & Matt to a better than average job. The only thing is I wish they would have put their own "spin" on each song such as "what would 'Burnin' for you' have sounded like if Iced Earth had wrote it? etc....

|Iced Earth hit you with track after classic track on this one. An all cover record, which at first seems like just another novelty record. Wait! This one will bust you in the chops time after time. They did no wrong on this one. You don't have to be a fan of their music to be able to get into this record. I'd recommend it to any metal fan that was raised on classic 70's hard rock & metal. Some might say that they are carbon copies of the originals. There's some truth to that. Still... 6

|Their cover of Highway to Hell was crap. Technically it was an accurate cover, but it was missing the "oomph", the heart, the soul of the original by a long shot. Sounded empty and weak, even though like I said, they're playing the right notes.

|Great cover songs, I wish they would have strayed away from Kiss and AC/DC. Then again Schaffer was influenced by them, so it's his decision. Would have been nice if there were more Maiden and Priest covers.

|This was originally part of the Dark Genesis box set, but ended up being released by itself. A covers album obviously, and as such, I can't give it more than a 75 rating. There are some definite highlights though, starting right off with "Creatures Of The Night," and you just knew Barlow was going to tear that one up, with his Paul-Stanley-with-balls voice. Jon Schaffer takes the mic on a heavy-thumping version of "God Of Thunder." The two Blue Oyster Cult songs rip, but for some reason, Schaffer's grinding, trebly guitar tone, of the band's somewhat stiff, non-grooving delivery doesn't suit either of the AC/DC tunes all that well, especially "Highway To Hell." THey don't really add anything to "number Of The Beast," but do a good job on "Hallowed Be Thy Name." The worst song is "Black Sabbath," which just falls flat.
