Iced Earth

Alcatraz Line up: 2012, 2017

One of our favorite American metal bands is Iced Earth, with a long successful career. And following a period of inactivity as a result of band leader and main song writer Jon Schaffer requiring cervical fusion surgery, and then time to recover from his back problems. None of that is standing in the way of the future anymore. The band is currently working hard on a sequel to the 2014 album “Plagues Of Babylon". It will be the third album with singer Stu Block and twelfth studio album that will be called “Incorruptible”, due for release in May 2017. Just in time for us at this summer’s Alcatraz Festival. When asked about the band's musical style, Jon Schaffer once said: "We're a metal band. That's what we are. We have every dynamic from Pink Floyd to Slayer and everything in between.” And we are very honored to add these classic heavy metal veterans to this year’s high quality line-up!
