ICED EARTH Mainman Interviewed In Vienna (Video)

Stormbringer webzine conducted an interview with ICED EARTH guitarist/mainman Jon Schaffer on December 13 in Vienna, Austria during the band's European tour with EVERGREY, STEEL ENGRAVED and DEAD SHAPE FIGURE. You can now watch the chat below.

ICED EARTH's August 19 concert at the ancient Kourion Amphitheater, outside Limassol in Cyprus, was professionally filmed and recorded for an upcoming CD/DVD release. 1,500 fans witnessed the show, which ran for three hours and featured on-stage scenery and artwork that was uniquely created for this special event. Veteran producer Jim Morris of Morrisound Studios (ICED EARTH, SEPULTURA, MORBID ANGEL, DEATH, SAVATAGE) flew in from Tampa, Florida to supervise the entire audio section with the help of the ToneDeaf Recording Studio.

The "Live In Ancient Kourion" DVD will be released in early April. The cover artwork for the set was created by Nathan Perry and Felipe Machado Franco.

ICED EARTH's latest album, "Dystopia", sold around 6,100 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 67 on The Billboard 200 chart.

The band's previous CD, "The Crucible of Man (Something Wicked Part II)", opened with 6,700 units in September 2008 to debut at No. 79.

ICED EARTH's 10th studio offering, "Dystopia", was released in Europe on October 17, 2011 and in the U.S. on October 18 via Century Media Records. Two bonus tracks were also recorded for inclusion on special editions of the album.
