Former DEATH Guitarist Joins ICED EARTH

Former DEATH touring guitarist and current MILLENIUM axeman Ralph Santolla has officially joined ICED EARTH as the group's second guitarist. Santolla replaces Larry Tarnowski, who left the group earlier in the year in order to continue his studies. Santolla reportedly plans to keep working on new MILLENIUM material and has recently welcomed singer Todd Plant back into the fold for the band's future releases.

ICED EARTH are currently on the lookout for a new frontman following the departure of Matt Barlow earlier in the month. A new album, titled "Glorious Burden", is due before the end of the year through SPV/Steamhammer Records.
