ICED EARTH “Incorruptible” – New Studio Album Releases On June 16th!

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on May 3, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

Album cover artwork by David Newman-Stump and Roy Young.

Whoa! Look at that album artwork above! That’s 100% Metal. Bravo to the two artists named at the top of this post; a Metal job well done! Once again, Set Abominae is featured on this new ICED EARTH album cover and after so many years, this mascot has quietly become rather iconic within the world of Metal, in my Metal opinion.

Yes, I will be buying this new ICED EARTH album. It releases on June 16th. Most probably I’ll buy the CD and hopefully scrape up the cash for a vinyl purchase too. Seriously, this is an album (based on its artwork alone) that must be owned on vinyl! I’ve never seen ICED EARTH in concert and they are on my very long bucket list of bands to see. Metal Be Thy Name. – Stone

Great Heathen Army

Black Flag

Raven Wing

The Veil

Posted in guitars, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music with tags , , , on September 23, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Iced Earth

As reported on the ICED EARTH Facebook:

Iced Earth Fans,
 Iced Earth is in the process of setting up a new headquarters for all things concerning the band, including a new studio for future recordings. Jon Schaffer has decided to sell some guitars from his massive collection to help finance the new project.

Schaffer states, “I’m selling a few guitars that have been on various recordings as well as some that were bought for my personal collection. We need to raise a large amount of money to complete the vision of our new headquarters, and begin this new chapter in the bands march to independence, to thrive in the ever-changing music business. There are some pretty killer guitars in the collection, so I urge die-hard fans, and guitar collectors alike, to go to Carter Vintage Guitars and see what’s there.”
Those interested can follow the link below.

ICED EARTH – Jon Schaffer’s Update On His Improving Health

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on August 24, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Iced Earth - large classic logo - #5

As written/told by the legendary Jon Schaffer and posted on the ICED EARTH Facebook:

“Hello brothers and sisters,

I’m writing to let you know that I’m healing very well. I played guitar a few weeks ago for the first time, and it immediately felt like the surgery worked. Needless to say, I was very relieved. Through many months of the Worldwide Plagues Tour I was suffering from a loss of coordination in my hands, numbness, and intense levels of pain. It was a battle every night onstage and it reached a critical point where the cervical fusion had to happen, sooner rather than later. I am happy to report that so far things are going very well in my recovery, and I expect it to stay on this path. We are in the planning stages of our next US tour, and that will very likely take place this winter. So, before you know it we’ll be back on the warpath, and before long, songwriting will commence, and another chapter of Iced Earth history will be in the making. There will be lots of updates in the coming months. We are forging the attack as I am recovering from surgery. The boys and I are ready to get back out there ASAP to lay down the metal!

Thanks so much for your concern and support!”

Some Metal and Rock ‘N Roll Thoughts – Sunday, July 13th, 2014

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , on July 13, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

RAMONES - Promo album pic!

Above: Front cover for debut album RAMONES, released in 1976 via Sire Records. L to R: Johnny Ramone, Tommy Ramone, Joey Ramone and Dee Dee Ramone.

______________________________

It’s an overcast and humid Sunday morning, here in Southwestern Ohio. There are thunderstorms forecasted for later today, due to the cold front coming in from the Northwest. Reports are that some of these storms may be severe. Whoa. Temperatures are to drop to the lower 70’s for this (early) coming week too. That’s early October in July!

On a somber note, everyone at Metal Odyssey expresses condolences to the family, friends and fans of the legendary Tommy Ramone. At only 65 years of age,  Tommy Ramone passed away on July 11th. He was the original drummer for the Ramones and also contributed as a producer and songwriter for the band. Tommy Ramone was the drummer on the first three Ramones studio albums. If there’s a Rock And Roll Heaven, I’m certain the Ramones are now touring up there and making some noise. God bless them all.

Queen - debut album promo pic - #9907

On this day in Rock History, the debut and self-titled album from Queen was released back in 1973. What more can be said? The rest truly is iconic Rock History. By the way, I was only seven years old then. Whoa!

Jon Schaffer, (legendary guitarist & founder of ICED EARTH), has recently undergone neck surgery. Below is Jon Schaffer’s latest update and good news on his situation, as posted on the ICED EARTH Facebook page:

Hello friends,

I’m writing to let you know that I made it through the surgery and am steadily on the road to recovery. The surgeon informed us that everything went smooth during the operation and that I should be back in action within a few months.

Thank you all very much for your support, you truly are the best fans any band could ask for.

Take care and best to you all,

Jon Schaffer

ICED EARTH – Forced To Cancel This Summer’s Festivals And Headline Shows

Posted in Heavy Metal, metal music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on June 7, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Iced Earth - large classic logo - #5

As reported by the legendary Jon Schaffer, on the ICED EARTH Facebook page:

It is with sincere apologies that I write to inform you all that ICED EARTH is forced to cancel this summer’s festivals and headline shows.

As many of you know, I underwent surgery on my neck in the year 2000, due to an onstage injury that occurred in 1996. Since that time, I have battled with this problem, and it has begun to accelerate in the past several months, causing additional issues that can no longer be ignored.

In February, while on tour in Europe, I underwent highly specialized treatment in Germany from a doctor who has helped, among many others, Tony Iommi and Eddie Van Halen. This treatment helped sustain my ability to perform so that we could complete our Worldwide Plagues Tour.

However, I am now forced to take further, more invasive action sooner than I intended in order to maintain my overall health.

Surgery was originally planned to take place in September during our break, but I have now been advised to have the procedure completed sooner rather than later.

As much as it pains me and everyone else in our camp to have to cancel these dates, this is something that cannot be put aside any longer.

Once the surgery and recovery are completed, we will be back to work – healthy, strong, and ready to bring the metal to you, our fans.

Best wishes to you all,

Jon Schaffer
