Of those types of song this is probably one of their better efforts, musically. Not sold on Stu's vocals though. I always feel like he's stuck between a Barlow impression and his own thing which doesn't work for me. It was a nice tune though.Pretty much every IE album has at least one song like this: Boiling Point, Divide Devour, Framing Armageddon, The Reckoning, Jack, Stand Alone, Violate etc. I think that the song that comes out tomorrow will be different.
The best thing about this song is that bridge: which is admittedly awesome. Who is the lead guitarist on this record? Cause it sounds very good. The production sounds incredibly dry and bland.
I already know where this is going and don't need to hear generic IE ballad #193418358
Iced Earth is no prog metal.
