    There are going to be some awesome songs on THE GLORIOUS BURDEN.

    Some we've heard, some we haven't.

    But the highlight of this Iced Earth CD may very well be the trilogy "Gettysburg (1863)"

    Do you guys have high expectations for this monster? Three songs, clocking in at about 10 minutes EACH, "The Devil to Pay", "Hold at all Costs", and "High Water Mark." With the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra giving some extra muscle. Lengthwise, it DESTROYS the Something Wicked and Scarred Trilogys. And may just be more epic than the masterpiece, "Dante's Inferno." I can only imagine...

    I hope the Ripper can pull it off, but I don´t think he can follow Matt´s footsteps...
    nevertheless it will most definately be cool

    From what I hear it will be very heavy, and will most likely blow all of the other trilogies away. I just wish that Matt was doing it, but I guess I'll hope for the best with Owens.

    The RECKONING single isn't even wetting your whistle a little bit?



    I know it's only four songs, but it'll hold me until the CD. Though I REALLY, REALLY wish it had come out this year...

    The full album was suppost to come out on October 23, but they pushed it back. I don't know why they did that, but that made me angry.

    Achilles by Manowar is like 30 minutes and its a halfhour long piece of shit.
    It may be longer than Wicked and Scarred but dunno if it will be better. Once bands start using orchestras and what not they tend to rely on that too much and not the guitar playing. So we shall see.

    Besides. Its not about how long your trilogy is. Its how big your dick is. :)

    Can't imagine another Dante's Inferno at least...Jon isn't pissed off enough to write lyrics like that,and I think so for the music too...

    Hopefully it'll just be good on its own. It'll be pretty different than the The Suffering or Something Wicked trilogies at least.

    I hate how IE make all their epics separate songs. Geez...grow some nuts and make a continuous track, for pete's sake. If you don't have the compositional skills to keep our attention for the duration, don't write the friggin' epic!

    i think it would be cool if they did like symphony X and made their epics have chapters, rather than totally seperate songs.

    Dante's Inferno was an epic and it was all one song.

    anonymousdick2001, ok dude let's here your epic along with your compositional skills. And I don't want to here it's my opinion bla,bla,bla. Grow some nuts and back up your whiny post.

    I like how he breaks the trilogies up. He couldn't do it with Dante's Inferno because the chapters were too short but there are some parts of the trilogies I like better than others and I reserve my right to skip ahead.

    BTW, whistle is wet and I can't wait for the new stuff!

    Personally, I think it will be hard to top the Something Wicked Trilogy...

    You guys are arguing for no reason. After all, an epic is one long song. A Trilogy has 3 parts. If the trilogy is made up of 3 epic songs, so be it.

    The Something Wicked Trilogy is an Iced Earth masterpiece. "The Coming Curse" is one of the great heavy metal songs of all time.
