Century Media will release the first four studio albums of ICED EARTH in July.

 

“Iced Earth” and “Night Of The Stormrider” will be released on June 10th, “Burnt Offerings” and “The Dark Saga” will be released on June 17th. All four albums will come in gatefold sleeves featuring the original LP artwork. Layouts have been kept close to the layouts of the original vinyl versions as well. Each LP includes a 60×60 artwork poster and 180 g vinyl. The LP sound has been kept in its original form, with a special vinyl mastering of Patrick Engel, known from his careful mastering works for bands as Jag Panzer, Exodus, Trouble, Tokyo Blade or Candlemass, delivering you the best vinyl listening experience of these US power metal classics.

 

While “The Dark Saga” has already seen one vinyl re-issue in 2010 (which is a rare edition by now), the first three ICED EARTH albums have never seen an LP re-issue since their initial release. As prices have reached ridiculous heights lately, it’s time to offer you these outstanding and influential albums for a regular price. The albums “Days Of Purgatory”, “Something Wicked This Way Comes” and “Horror Show” will follow in the first quarter of 2016.
