Format: CD
Après Dark Saga, Schaffer revient au concept album avec Something Wicked Part 1 et le résultat est à la hauteur des espérances : un album varié et efficace. Tout d'abord, des intros / outros réussis plongeant parfaitement dans l'ambiance de cette histoire futuriste imaginée par Schaffer. Des orchestrations originales qui dénotent avec les précédents albums. Et puis des tueries métal où Tim "Screamer" Owens enfonce vocalement tout ce qui a pu se faire dans le genre ("Ten Thousand Strong" & "Framing Armaggedon"). Des morceaux plus lents avec des mélodies et des refrains soignés ("A Charge To Keep" / When Stars Collide"). Les étonnants "The Clouding" avec ses influences bluesy et "Reflections", une ballade planante de 2 mn. On pourrait citer pratiquement tous les morceaux de l'album qui ont chacun leurs qualités propres.
Le travail de composition de Schaffer est une réussite et Tim Owens a su repousser ses limites dans les morceaux moins rapides donnant beaucoup d'émotion aux chansons à l'image de Gettysburg sur l'album précédent. Néanmoins, par rapport aux anciens albums du groupe, les solos sont moins présents et le rythme est plus mid-tempo dans l'ensemble, ce qui fait penser avec le recul qu'il manque le petit quelque chose permettant d'égaler les meilleurs albums du groupe.

Par Blaster of Muppets TOP 1000 COMMENTATEURSMEMBRE DU CLUB DES TESTEURS le 24 octobre 2007
Format: CD
Allez, je n'écris pas tant de commentaires que cela mais cette fois je vais en profiter pour contredire ceux (et ils sont nombreux d'après ce que j'observe) qui fustigent Tim Owens. Alors oui, il ne s'agit pas du meilleur album du groupe, c'est clair. Il manque d'un peu de "niaque", il est long et les morceaux peinent à sortir du lot. Certains titres sont tout de même imparables: "Framing Armageddon" et "Ten Thousand Strong" sont très efficaces. L'album offre des mélodies et des arrangements intéressants, et il gagne des points au fur et à mesure des écoutes.
Maintenant, on peut le comparer aux classiques du groupe tels que "The Dark Saga" ou "Something Wicked This Way Comes" et être légitimement déçu. Pourquoi pas. On peut aussi regretter l'ancien chanteur Matthew Barlow, je trouve également qu'il était exceptionnel et collait parfaitement au style du groupe.
En revanche, ce qui m'énerve et me semble parfaitement injuste, c'est de critiquer Tim Owens. Il est toujours facile de dire que, quand un album est raté, c'est la faute du nouveau chanteur et ainsi, de gentiment s'aveugler et nier que CEUX QUI COMPOSENT sont en manque d'inspiration.
Tout cela me rappelle les critiques faites à Blaze Bailey parce qu'ils n'aimaient pas "The X Factor" ou "Virtual XI" de Maiden... ils avaient en partie raison: Dieu que ces albums sont mauvais! Mais c'est Steve Harris qui était aux fraises sur "The X Factor", c'est tout de même lui qui a composé et produit cet album, non?
Même chose pour Judas Priest avec l'arrivée de Tim Owens (justement).

bonjour les amis, encore le Doc' et son avis tranchant comme une lame de bistouri... Quand j'ai entendu les premiers morceaux je me suis demandé si c'était pas une erreur, je croyais écouter le nouveau Demons & Wizards... Excellente référence, on s'éloigne en effet de l'ambiance habituellement brute de décoffrage de Iced Earth pour tomber sur une espèce d'album magistral, symphonique, magnifiquement interprété par... tous les musiciens en fait, ça tient terriblement la route. J'ai eu un autre doute, je croyais entendre RJ DIO, eh ben non, c'est Ripper OWEN (souvenez vous de son passage pompeux chez JUDAS PRIEST) mais très très en forme. Pour conclure, un album varié, homogène dans les phrases musicales, symphonique dirais-je même, bref un album comme je les adore. Allez, j'y mets 5 car j'ai eu énormément de plaisir dès la première écoute. Avec 11/10 pour Ripper Owen. Allez-y, foncez!!!!!!!

Nouvel opus tant attendu et je reste sur ma fin. Quelques bons morceux, quelques vrais rares enchainements à la Iced mais le reste c'est plutôt du mou, du lent, du déja vu et on voit de suite que Matt n'est plus la pour mettre sa griffre aux compo de John. Fini les albums ou sur 10 titres il y avait 10 skuds. Décidement Tim Owens dans Iced c'est comme Tim dans Judas Priest, une grosse déception et la conformisation aux standards du hard commercial mou de chez mou courant les rues. Je met quand même 3 étoiles car Iced c'est Iced.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Iced Earth's Opus, A decade in the making 11 septembre 2007
Par J. C. Amos - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
After 6 years of being an Iced Earth fan and anticipating this album that whole time, I am glad to say that this album was well worth the wait. Jon Schaffer has truly outdone himself here. The music, the orchestration, the lyrics, the awesome metal riffs; everything is here.

Glorious Burden is a good album, but it felt more like an album to test the waters than a typical solid IE release. With the band changing record labels as well as its singer, it just seemed like a hit or miss album with some awesome tracks but a few I didn't care for so much. However, any doubts this had created about this epic follow up are put entirely to rest. This is IE's best album to date. Ripper is at the top of his game with a sound that feels like it was crafted just for him, and this may sound like heresy to some, but I find it difficult to imagine Barlow's low, haunting tone on some of these tracks. And with all the great music that flows so wonderfully together, we also have a very well thought and complex sci-fi story that Schaffer has poured his blood and emotion into (The scope and story are more ambitious than a lot of sci-fi that I've read from novelists.) Just brilliant.

There are 19 tracks total on this concept album behemoth, too many to comment on each one, but there are definitely some notable standout tracks:

The album begins with "Overture", which sets the tone wonderfully. It has a very eastern feel with lots of string instruments and bongo style drums. It paves the way nicely for the opener track, "Something Wicked Pt 1". This track is mind blowing. I was expecting to hear the redone version of Prophecy that I heard on the single, but this is its own song. It begins with a stunning riff that seems to be a combination of old Metallica and Beethoven. "The Setian Massacre" I had already heard on the band's myspace page and it's a nice hard rocking track, reminiscent of The Reckoning. "A Charge to Keep" is Framing Armageddon's first ballad, and IE has exceeded their standards with great ballads on this one.

"Ten Thousand Strong" is arguably the best track on the album. Even though I already heard it with the Overture single, the buildup intro track Reflections puts it in a whole new context. Just amazing. This is one of those songs that makes you want to raise your fist and cheer.

"The Clouding" is definitely the most unique of this CD, and I don't believe we've heard anything like it before. It's long -at about 9 minutes- and the first 5 of those are in a slow ballad style with some ambient guitar not unlike Pink Floyd. It turns into a hard rocker with a riff that would fit right at home in an early Sabbath album. Pretty cool song. Framing doesn't stop rocking there either. It continues with "Order of the Rose", "Infiltrate and Assimilate" (reminds me of Violate or Disciples), the epic "Domino Decree" and the title track "Framing Armageddon".

Those may be the tracks of note, but there is nothing unworthy of Iced Earth in the entire album. Every song, including the few short bridge tracks, flow well into each other to tell this story. The lyrics are thoughtful and well sung by the ever versatile Tim "Ripper" Owens. And of course, we have the riffing, the trademark style that is all Schaffer and that keeps me loving this band with every release.

Jon Schaffer, if you are to read this, I tip my hat to you. This is your best work yet and you are an inspiration to anyone who aspires to do something great.

This album is amazing, and anyone who likes metal, nay music, weather or not they have listened to IE or not before, should buy this album. I eagerly await part 2! Cheers and rock the f*** on!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Top notch writing!! MVP - Tim Owens 2 novembre 2007
Par happyandy83 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
What's killer:

Tim `Ripper' Owens is quite simply an amazing vocalist. His phrasing is amongst the best I've ever heard, as evidenced on the harmonic laced "Reflections' and the ballad type moments of `The Clouding'. While he may not have the `Baritone' of Barlow, I believe he has the best-matched voice for Iced Earth. And with time, more Iced Earth fans will understand what I have understood since he sang on the Gettysburg Trilogy.

Jon Schaffer has also taken steps forward as the maturing song writer. Yes, the infamous `gallop riff' is still as prominent as ever, but is taken in an entirely new direction, which is refreshing to see. The main riff in `Something Wicked Part 1' is a good example of this, brimming with the spirit of latter day Dream Theater composition.
As for the album's epic masterwork, there isn't one - really. `The Clouding' is the closest you're going to get clocking in at 9 minutes. This matters little though, as each song is deserving of its own sound world - no guitar riff is rehashed, not this time...

The artwork and inner booklet is very nice indeed, containing song illustrations in the same vein as 2001's `Horror Show' and 2004's `The Glorious Burden'. Again, Schaffer takes pride in CD packaging and offers up greater reason to buy his art rather than to simply download it. While I maintain the `Something Wicked' storyline, should have been released as a double disc set, the illustrations and lyrics here only offer a `general' outline of the `Something Wicked' storyline, and are not enough to suffice a full blown concept - like a comic book. The original idea was to release a comic book accompanying the CD. However, it is believed it would be too time consuming to do so.

Throwaway tracks: Nearly every Iced Earth album has 1 or 2 duds. Fortunately, there is only 1 here, and that is the instrumental `Something Wicked pt.2' - it will bore the pants off you! The same thing was achieved much earlier with the superior `Overture'.

What's missing:

After 18 + years of writing material for Iced Earth, what keeps Schaffer going is his desire to make the big leagues - to someday move 500,000 copies in the U.S. That is his ultimate goal. What's stopping him is the absence of a permanent lead guitar player (not just guest solo spots on albums). Now the problem may be with Schaffer himself, and his specific vision on how an IE song should sound. Consider the revolving door of band members - with little collaboration to be found in recent years.

On "Framing Armageddon" there are moments where a lead begins but never really takes off. `The Setian Massacre' is a prime example. All the classic bands: Sabbath, Metallica, Maiden, all utilized this area in their music to maximum effect. With Iced Earth, a guitar lead is merely in the shadow of a gargantuan riff. `Retribution through the Ages' carries the longest (and best) solo on `Framing Armageddon'.

With those minor criticisms aside `Framing Armageddon' still receives weekly rotation in my CD player and is easily one of 2007's best metal releases. Look out for Something Wicked pt 2. which should surface around July 2008!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 IE'S GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT TO DATE...THIS IS WELL-CRAFTED, REMARKABLE METAL CREATED BY A MAN AT THE TOP OF HIS GAME 15 septembre 2007
Par Just Bill - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I've been listening to Framing Armageddon all day. I have two words for it:

HOLY CRAP!!!!!

This isn't the Iced Earth of even just a few years ago. This is a new IE, with more melody, more depth, and more variety in their songs -- and vocals from Tim Owens that perfectly match the music.

Whereas in the past I thought Tim's vocals seemed tacked on, almost like they were purposely cast to replace (former vocalist) Matt Barlow's vocals, on Armageddon Tim's voice fits the music to a T. It's obvious Armageddon was a collaboration, with Jon writing for Tim's killer vocal style rather than for Matt's.

I know I'll take heat for typing this, but I think Armageddon is IE's best work to date. I love Something Wicked and Horror Show. I think Alive in Athens is a landmark in live metal recordings. But Framing Armageddon is in a different league entirely.

The recording is crisp and multi-layered. There's just the right amount of everything. Track 12, "The Clouding," is a phenomenal song. But so are many of the other tracks -- especially "The Domino Decree," a song that skirts the edges of classic prog rock by using keyboards that remind me of Kansas. "Domino" is a stirring, bold, transcendent song on an album brimming over with masterful songs.

Tim shines. No doubt about it. His soaring voice has finally found a home that showcases it. But I think it's Jon Schaffer who deserves high marks for crafting music that lives and breathes, that stands alone as truly great music, rather than music that's clearly created by Jon Schaffer. Jon has a trademark style of riffing and songwriting. Even his guitar tone is classic. But I'm not hearing Jon Schaffer on Framing Armageddon. Even his guitar tone sounds different. No, I'm hearing a mature songwriter who has just created an album that spotlights the talents of everyone involved, not just himself. This is Jon Schaffer's masterpiece. He is clearly at the top of his game.

Framing Armageddon grabbed me from the first listen and has continued to hold my attention virtually all day long.

Remarkable. Absolutely remarkable.

THIS is an Iced Earth that I'd love to see tour.

Bring it to the U.S., Jon!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 First Iced Earth album 27 avril 2009
Par Born in '73 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Fantastic Album of Metal. Forgive me, I don't get into lables so much (ie) Progressive, Thrash ect. Good Metal stands on it's own.

I'd never heard of Iced Earth before, I'm a 36yr old fan of heavy Metal of all kinds. I'll admit I have since found that I caught Iced Earth in transition so to speak with a different singer. but I think this album rocks!
Being a long time fan of Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Scorpions, Megadeth and the like, I was looking for something new, but I don't care for the nu-metal sound at all. This album fit that mold nicely.

The strongest tracks to me are: 'Setian Massacre' 'A Charge to Keep' 'Ten Thousand Strong' 'Order Of The Rose' and 'The Clouding'

I really enjoyed putting the headphones on and listening to this album, it is very crunchy and the vocals are soaring. Tim Owens sounds MUCH better here than on his Judas Priest albums IMO. The story line, I can take or leave, as it requires you to "get into this fantasy world" Of Setians vs Humans, which at this stage in my life is a little "corny" But overall I like the music and lyrics enough to recommend it to my friends. I even checked out Glorious Burden (same vocalist) and purchased that as well.

I've learned my lesson over the years about following a band and purchasing every release (ie) Metallica, Kiss and Judas Priest. Most bands reach a creative peak and put out two or three great albums, and then spend the rest of their career trying to recapture the magic, or go in an entirely new direction to build a new fan base. The exceptions being Iron Maiden's (Matter of Life and Death) and Judas Priest's (Nosradamus)

Iced Earth, as I've discorved them, seem to be in top form, and I for one highly recommend this release as well as Glorious Burden.

My advice for those of you who were disappointed with this: Don't have a favorite band, you will always be disappointed, just have a favorite genre and cherry pick the best of the best, and before you know it you will have a collection of music so awesome, that no matter which one you pick out to play you will have a smile on your face.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 23 octobre 2007
Par Tyler Durden - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
wow... I never heard of this band before. I am a Queensryche and Savatage fan and got this recommended to me by amazon and noticed that tim ripper owens was on it so I decided to check it out and boy was I surprised. with apologies to Tool / A Perfect Circle / Sevendust this album is in my opinion is THE BEST hard rock / metal album I've heard since I can't even remember... maybe as far back as Metallica's black album. I'm so excited because I had pretty much resigned myself to listening to Wolfmother if I wanted to hear something new and hard and good again. This band kicks buttocks so hard that it leaves a footprint and I can almost taste it's bootlaces in the back of my throat. I went out and bought the greatest hits album and alive in athens and the glorious burden and can't wait to give those a try as soon as I listen to this album again!!! If you're a fan of Savatage, Metallica, Queensryche, Dio, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, King Diamond, etc. and feel like somethinig is missing in your life because you haven't heard any new music this century that speaks to you, then I HIGHLY RECOMMEND GETTING THIS.
