ICED EARTH Film Video For 'Declaration Day'

ICED EARTH have shot a third video from their highly acclaimed "Glorious Burden" album. The clip, for the track "Declaration Day", is being directed by the Machine design/motion graphics studio (web site) and is expected to begin airing during the coming weeks.

ICED EARTH are currently on hiatus while mainman/guitarist Jon Schaffer tends to his ongoing back problems and awaits the arrival of his first child. In addition, Shaffer is said to be working on the sophomore album from DEMONS & WIZARDS, his project with BLIND GUARDIAN singer Hansi Kürsch. Meanwhile, singer Tim "Ripper" Owens (ex-JUDAS PRIEST) is completing work on a set of solo demos which he plans on using to procure a record deal.

ICED EARTH, who are said to be very much together, are tentatively scheduled to perform at several European festivals next summer.

In related news, congratulations are in order for Owens and his wife Jeannie, who are expecting their second child (a baby daughter) on April 9, 2005. The couple have a 17-month-old son, Timothy Steven Owens Jr. In addition, Tim has a 15-year-old daughter, Lauren, from a previous marriage.
