This morning in the Metal Digest office, we’re blasting the volume up on ‘Burnt Offerings’, the 1995 masterpiece from Iced Earth. For many Iced Earth fans, ‘Burnt Offerings’ remains one of the pinnacles of their career, it was the first album to feature Matt Barlow at the vocal stand as Iced Earth pushed their sound forward into something which much darker and heavier than anything the band had delivered previously as ‘Burnt Offerings’ sat somewhere between heavy and thrash metal. Tracks such as ‘Creator Failure’, ‘ Brainwashed’ and the title track set the precedent for the remainder of Iced Earth’s career whilst the ‘Dante’s Inferno’ epic remains a strong favourite amongst fans of the band who saw the 16 and a half minute beast as a benchmark for the remainder of Iced Earth’s epics. So this morning, crank it up loud and get your neighbourhood out of bed with this massive Iced Earth offering.
