Iced Earth have released the second single from their new, forthcoming album, 'Incorruptible', which will be released on June 16th 2017 via Century Media.

So here's 'Raven Wings', for your enjoyment.

Yesterday, the very first single from 'Incorruptible', 'Seven Headed Whore', was unleashed and it's three minutes of uncompromising, fast, powerful and real Metal, and it's here for you, right now...

'Incorruptible' will be available in multiple formats and for the best possible sound quality of the two vinyl versions (2LP and Artbook), the album has received a special vinyl mastering treatment. You will hear the difference.

The stunning artwork was created by David Newman-Stump from Skeleton Crew Tattoo (pencil illustrations) and Roy Young (colours) who also produced additional illustrations for every song of the new album.

Jon Schaffer has said about 'Incorruptible', Iced Earth's twelfth studio album:

"The new output is on a par with the band's most favourite albums, 'The Dark Saga', 'Something Wicked This Way Comes' or 'Dystopia'."

'Raven Wing' will be released tomorrow, April 29th 2017.

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
