After nearly three dedicated decades, Schaffer, drummer Brent Smedley, vocalist Stu Block, bassist Luke Appleton, and new guitarist Jake Dreyer have assembled the fiercest Iced Earth record since 1996 milestone The Dark Saga and 1998Æs chart-blazer Something Wicked This Way Comes. Titled æIncorruptibleÆ, Iced EarthÆs 12th record is inspired not by things political but by things personal. Since Plagues of Babylon landed in 2014 to heaps of praise and chart-topping success, Schaffer and team have weathered proverbial storms. Management shake-ups, SchafferÆs well-publicized and very serious neck surgeryùheÆs since fully recoveredùand lineup shifts all played positively into Incorruptible. But that wasnÆt always the case. With a new lineup reconfigured, a newly completed Iced Earth headquarters to call home, a new record in ready for hails and headbangs, all powered by SchafferÆs indestructible drive and infinite engine, itÆs clear Iced Earth are making 2017 their banner year. Songs like æClear the WayÆ, æBlack FlagÆ, æRaven WingÆ, æGhost Dance (Awaken the Ancestors)Æ, and æGreat Heathen ArmyÆ are destined for the halls of heavy metal greatness. In fact, Incorruptible is special. A contemporary classic. A legendary record barely out of the gate. It just feels like a record of import.
