Staff review by
Demonic Tutor

I want to be clear, what I'm reviewing here is the 2001's re-mixed and re-mastered version of the original Iced Earth, part of the Dark Genesis box-set , but since nobody has written something about the original till today, I can at least talk about the songs, seeing that I have no clue about the original sound. In fact, I already noticed a big difference between the original Night Of The Stormrider and the version included in the box-set. Have a look at that other review for more information. But still, this record has something very attractive: that's the first Iced Earth's full-length album, following their highly-praised demo.

Comment on this excellent album is really difficult ...
Everything in this album is a masterpiece and a very good ...
I think * Jon Schaffer * is the best world beat rhythm guitar .... I think anyone who has not listened to the album ... It has done wrong in his life ... not listening to the album "the best guitar riff heard nothing ... not even the passing of * Gene Adam * In my opinion the best vocals ICED EARTH ...
