Biography

Iced Earth's tenth album Dystopia, released in 2011, marked the beginning of a new chapter in the band's career with the entrance of former Into Eternity vocalist Stu Block. Their new album Plagues Of Babylon is volatile proof the accolades Iced Earth received for Dystopia weren't a case of beginner's luck. Then again, guitarist/founder Jon Schaffer has trusted his blood, sweat ... Read more in Amazon's Iced Earth Store

Beyond this song, the rest of the album is very good.
A. Katko
The intro to the song in my opinion is VERY epic, and when things get heavy, it gets creepy in some ways, with the guitar melodies.
Freeman
With the album, Burnt Offerings, originally released in 1995, Iced Earth became my favorite American metal band....hands down!!

I think it's no coincidence that this album came out on the tenth anniversary of that legendary Slayer album. It's has that same dark, hellish feel. But, as great as that album might be, this is a far superior masterpiece. Let me start off by saying that this album is a bit different from other Iced Earth albums. It's a bit darker and more experimental. You may have heard that this album is a bit death metal-ish, and if that turned you off because you thought it would sound like Cannibal Corpse or something, let me tell you right now that it does not. There are some blast beats, and more hard-edged vocals, but this is undeniably Iced Earth. Most of the songs are pretty long, at least five minutes, and are very well structured, and every song has a pretty good amount of melody in it. There is some really awesome songwriting in here, too. The Romeo and Juliet type story "Last December" is really cool, and "Brainwashed" has some great commentary on religion. But, the real brilliance of the album lies in the final track, "Dante's Inferno". There is truely nothing more incredible than this song. The Crazy Trains, the Masters of Puppets, the Angels of Death, all brilliant songs, but they pale in comparison to this. Imagine if you took all the best material from Metallica, Slayer, and Iron Maiden, and combined it into one song. This is what it would sound like. "Dante's Inferno" is a 16 and a half minute ride through the nine plains of Hell, with layers upon layers of brilliant musicianship, and staggeringly incredible vocalization. If you hadn't figured out by now that Matt Barlow would go on to be their classic vocalist, this confirms it.Read more ›

Burnt Offerings opens to a new chapter in the band's career. It is vocalist Matt Barlow's first album of many. Jon Schaffer's songwriting expands to undertake more experimental directions. The band's already dark music sinks into deeper tones of malaise and gloom. Lots of anger and scorn; lots harsh vocals, some pseudo-death metal riffing, and plenty of keyboards for texture. Although this was one of my first Iced Earth albums, I haven't reviewed it for a long time because it takes a while to truly appreciate. It's different, but stunning in its own right. (see also the_wickerman's great review for this disc.)
The lead track, "Burnt Offerings," succinctly captures all of the album's qualities in a 7-minute song. It reveals that Barlow is the perfect vocalist for the band, equipped with astonishing range and expression. John Greely, the former vocalist, was pretty good...he could wail and snarl. Barlow, however, can do these things better, and throws skill, power, and passion into the delivery. During the chorus he skillfully toggles between gruff, fierce intonations and a deep bellow. In the quiet interlude, he sings like a dreary specter. The surrounding music meshes raucous thrash riffs, pounding beats, melodic guitar harmonies, delicate but brief pianos, and ominous lyrics. Quite simply, it's a brilliant song.
The dolorous "Last December" is not-quite-a-power-ballad, starting soft then thrusting into heavy riffing, all very dark in tone. "Brainwashed" is savage, murderous riffing with a lyrical message that condemns the hypocrisy that sometimes characterizes organized religion. "Burning Oasis," aside from having a mega cool song name, is seriously heavy music that comes fast & thick.

Burnt Offerings(1995). Iced Earth's third studio album and the first with legendary metal vocalist Matt Barlow.
In the early 90s, true heavy metal music was falling to the wayside in favor of the alternative grunge rock scene. Though heavy metal became an underground phenomenon once again with newer genres such as doom, death, black, progressive, and power metal, one band picked up the banner and continued on in the scorching thrash stylings of Metallica and melodic songwriting style of Iron Maiden. This band was known to be Iced Earth. Expert rhythm guitar god Jon Schaffer founded the band in the 80s and had a vision much like Steve Harris did for Iron Maiden: to carve a place in heavy metal history with his newfound band. They started off in the early 90s with two great albums: Iced Earth(1990) and Night Of The Stormrider(1992). Each album showed the band following their heroes Metallica and Iron Maiden fairly closely in style, and both featured different vocalists. The first was Gene Adams, who simply couldn't do the rest of the band justice with his cheezy, immature wailings. The next vocalist, Jon Greely, served much better, but due to his inability to cooperate with the rest of the band, he was dismissed after NOTSR. IE managed to achieve success, but thanks to their record label Century Media, they began a huge money dispute which sent the band into a bitter angry era which would greatly influence the sound of the next album they would release in a few years...
Out of nowhere, Schaffer finds vocalist Matt Barlow, and in 1995 they unleashed Burnt Offerings, the band's darkest and heaviest release to date. In many ways, one could say that BO was considered to be the first real IE album.
