Song of the Week – Plagues of Babylon

You know, I never really liked Iced Earth until Stu Block joined the band.  I am sure that is going to make some people squirm a bit, but it’s true.  I thoroughly enjoyed Dystopia and if I remember correctly, it made my Top 15 the year it was released.  Their new album, Plagues of Babylon, is set for release 6 Jan 2014 in Europe and 7 Jan in the U.S.  This self-titled song has been out for a few weeks and gives us a decent sample of what is to come.  It does sound a bit like Iron Maiden half way through the song which is not surprising.  Dark City off of Dystopia had a similar vibe.  Based on this one song, looks like Iced Earth may very well be on heavy rotation in my music library in 2014.  Iced Earth is on tour now in Europe until December and will resume another (headlining) European tour until late Feb 2014.  Enjoy!
