Posted on April 18th, 2017 by Chrissy Mauck

After a really peaceful and nice opening jam session that the guys referenced as #thingsthatyoudontthinkispossibletoplayonneonyellowguitars, the guys delve into the versatility (well beyond “80s hair metal”), craftmanship, features, unique colors and reasonable price point of these Charvel Pro-Mod Style 1 San Dimas and So-Cal instruments.

And of course, the segment would not be complete without a bit of shreddage, too.

Iced Earth Unveils New Album Details Incorruptible

Posted on April 13th, 2017 by Morgan Brunner


Iced Earth has revealed new details about upcoming album Incorruptible, due out June 16, including a heads up that its first two singles “Seven Headed Whore” and “Raven Wing” will drop at the end of April.

The 10-track album will be available in a variety of formats, including special limited edition vinyl in several colors and a 36-page artbook version with album sketches and comments about each song from guitarist and main songwriter Jon Schaffer.

During a recent interview with Metal Wani, Schaffer shared the writing direction behind Incorruptible.

“There is no concept on this record; it’s just ten individual tracks not related to each other,” he said “We have one called ‘Clear The Way’, which is about the Irish Brigade at the Battle Of Fredericksburg — very tragic, actually — but that’s a big epic (song), like ten minutes; and then we have one called ‘Black Flag’, which is a pirate song. It’s quite a… I think I pulled it off pretty well with the lyrics, to be able to tell such a big story in a very short amount of time. I think it’s gonna be a highlight of the record.”

The band also unveiled the album’s cover artwork, which was created by David Newman-Stump of Skeleton Crew Tattoo and Roy Young.

Stay tuned for more details on Incorruptible as the date draws closer. In the meantime, enjoy fan-filmed footage of Iced Earth’s performance at a show in the Netherlands featuring unreleased track “Great Heathen Army,” with guitarist Jake Dreyer on his Charvel Guthrie Govan Signature Model.
