History class... Iced Earth style
Posted by: Wrathchild666 from: on
Iced Earth just loves making concept albums. The Glorious Burden is full of songs that depict different military events in history from Atila the Hun through The American Civil War and even up to 9-11. This is also their first album with new vocalist Tim Owens, previously of Judasds Priest. Thoug many fans agree that Owens is as good as previous vocalist Matt Barlow, I must say that he is very good. He has a higher singing voice (just think this guy was in Judas Priest ).
The music on this album is very good. Jon Schaffer did an excellent job (as ussual) arranging the music. But then we get to the lyrics and there are a few cringeworthty moments here. The album gets a bit too patriotic at times and if it weren't for the heavy guitars and double bass drums, one might think this was the latest Toby Keith offering. "When the Eagle Cries," the 9-11 song, has some good music to it, but the lyrics are just far too bad.
The center point of this album is the half hour Gettysburg trilogy that appears at the end. These 3 songs go into great detail about the Battle of Gettysburg during the American Civil War. This piece of music is possibly one of Iced Earth's fienst moment.
