Drummer Brent Smedley who left Iced Earth7 years ago is back!!!

He is replacing Bobby Jarzombek.

The band also found a new guitar player who is kind of famous.

It’s the British Tim Mills, who is the owner and founder of the company “Bare Knuckle Pickups“, which all guitar players among my readers will know for sure.

They provide state of the art handwound pickups which is why Iced Earth Mastermind Jon Schaffer came to meet him after all.

Mills is recently also taking part in the songwriting, so I guess we can look forward to a new Iced Earth Masterpiece!

Brent Semdley, der vor 7 Jahren die Schlagzeugerposition bei Iced Earth aufgegeben hatte, kehrt zurück!!!

Er ersetzt somit Bobby Jarzombek.

Die Band hat auch einen neuen Gitarristen, der recht bekannt sein dürfte – zumindest unter anderen Gitarristen.

Es handelt sich nämlich um den Briten Tim Mills, Gründer und Inhaber der Firma “Bare Knuckle Pickups“.

Da Iced Earth die handgemachten Pickups aus dem Vereinigten Königreich mit Begeisterung verwenden, kam es überhaupt erst zu einem Treffen zwischen Mastermind Ron Schaffer und Mills, das nun in einer hoffentlich erfolgreichen Zusammenarbeit gipfelt.

Mills trägt zur Zeit auch höchst effektiv zum Songwriting bei … man darf sich somit wohl auf ein neues Iced Earth Meisterwerk gefasst machen!

Jon Schaffer von Iced Earth hat bestätigt, dass die DVD erscheinen wird.

Er warnte die Fans jedoch auf der Bandwebsite, da die Aufnahmen, die für die DVD verwendet wurden, seiner Ansicht nach nicht von ausreichender Qualität sind. Sie wurden von 3 Kameras aufgenommen und für eine Show des Musiksenders VIVA verwendet,  die John moderierte.

Century Media veröffentlicht die DVD gegen Schaffers ausdrückliche Bitte.

Er will niemanden daran hindern, die DVD zu kaufen! Er möchte nur sichergehen, dass jeder weiß, was er für sein Geld bekommt – eine sehr sympathische Geste! 🙂

Auf ihrer nächsten Welttour werden Iced Earth übrigens eine live DVD mit einem 16köpfigen Kamerateam aufnehmen!

Jon Schaffer of Iced Earth affirmed recent rumors of that DVD being released.

On his website he warned his fans that the material used for the DVD is not of the high standards they may expect!

Century Media Records will release the DVD without authorisation of the band. Jon Schaffer turned it down, explaining that the footage was not good enough. It was done with only 3 cameras for a show on German TV channel VIVA, which Jon hosted.

Jon does not explicitely ask us not to buy the DVD, he just wants to make sure everybody is aware of what he is getting – we should really give him credit for that!

On their next world tour the band will produce a DVD with a 16 camera crew!
