Guest review by

Tribute albums can be either great, or a complete waste of time. Thankfully, Iced Earth has provided us with one of the great ones. This eleven-track album gives Iced Earth fans the chance to hear some of the bands that helped shape Jon Schaffer's musical background. This particular album was first available as part of the five C.D. retrospective box set "Dark Genesis".
