    What are your expectations of the next album? Will the production /sound be similar to other studio albums? Will it be heavier? Ultimately, it's whatever Jon decides, but what would you like to see?

    I hope it's heavy as fuck. More thrashy like NOTS, but with more complex arrangements. Since he's doing it at Morrisound again, you can bet the production will be killer as usual, I just hope they don't do that "going back to a more raw sound" coz that ususally means it sounds like crap.

    I am not too thrilled about the concept they are taking for the next album but I hope it includes some of those songs that become instant classics,like Dracula

    The patriotic theme does seem a bit hard to relate to...then again at least it'll be a great history lesson. But still,it's much easier to relate to Spawn or Dracula than the Red Baron ;)
    Hopefully Gettysburg will be good with all the orchestra stuff.

    Something Wicked This Way Comes + Night Of The Stormrider = The Glorious Burden :)

    That would be Great :headbang:

    I know for one thing it will be raw because Jon Schaffer did the production himself. I can't wait to hear it.

    I have high expectations (as always). Jon wasn't happy with Century Media and wrote a few songs that he didn't include on any albums under that contract that he says were too good to give to them. I'm anxious to see how they turn out. I've been listening to Iced Earth since their debut so I'll definately buy it.

    I know Jon wanted to do a lot of complex arrangements and stuff, I just hope he doesn't go too soft in the process. I'm hoping for Night of the Stormrider but more complex.

    I'm thinking it might be a little too overdone lyrically and musically, but hey, Jon needs to get the patriotic stuff outta his system. I'd like to see more stripped-down, old-school stuff...the eeeeeevil of Offerings would be cool, but this album's probably gonna be a lot more "triumphant" sounding. Oh well, there's the SWTWC concept.

    I hope it will be in the vein of SWTWC

    ballads, fast songs, epic, anthemic cheesy songs

    I'm just hoping it'll be unique. But a combination of SWTWC, NOTS, and Burnt Offerings wouldn't be bad. It better be good, because this is now my 2nd most anticipated album of the year (right behind Enemies of Reality :headbang: ).

    I hope it's raw, but epic. Heavy and thrashy, but emotional and technical. And it goes without saying, with the Gettysburg song and all, it will be epic.

    I think it will be their heaviest since Burnt Offerings.

    I actually really like the patriotic theme that Jon is compiling for the new album. Another thing that is pissing me off though is that all you foreign IE fans are not happy with this concept because you are not American (no offense)!!!!

    And Justice for All.. was an album quite similar to what IE is doing here. That was all about war and honor and freedom, etc. I think it'll all depend on how the subject is approached.

    And Justice For All? Nah, that was more about the corruption of America's government and particularly legal system...much more critical than this album's going to be.

    Sounds like it'll be good so far, I've got no qualms with the patriotic theme. I'm hoping for something like Something Wicked, but a little heavier and darker.

    Didn't listen to your Justice too well did you? :) One,Shortest Straw or Dyer's Eve aren't highly patriotic songs :tickled: One is more or less about LOSS of freedom. Unlike Ghost Of Freedom by IE which was pretty nice...very good freedom theme there. Dooooon't treeeeeead oooon meeeee....

    Never said it was patriotic. But it is about freedom, just not in a hooray for freedom sense.

    true,but judging by Jon's song titles Glorious Burden isn't gonna be too criticising (sp?) about war and all that,just more like a history lesson.
