Best Iced Earth Albums


The Top Ten

1 Horror Show

A fantastic album! My favourite songs are: Dracula, Wolf, Damien, The Phantom Opera Ghost. - IronSabbathPriest

Yep. Jon's frenetic palm-muting on 'Wolf' alone make this one my favourite - play that one at 50-years of age Sir James Hetfield. It probably features their best line-up and production values, too.

2 Burnt Offerings

Album with no flaws. Heavy, melodic, and epic as hell. Dante's inferno, the epic of the album, is the best iced earth song of all time.

Last December gives ne the chills. That song is very thrilling - Sabbath

I always thought burnt offerings was their number one classic my whole life. - Sabbath

Dantes inferno is the album

3 Something Wicked This Way Comes

This is my personal favourite, I love the concept and the way the songs are put together. - IronSabbathPriest

How this album isn't number one baffles me. Sooo many classic Iced Earth songs on this album

4 Night of the Stormrider

Alive in Athens made me fall in love with this band, but working through the studio discography many of my favourite tracks were from this.

Epic without letting the concept eclipse the music (as would happen later), the first three Iced Earth albums are still my favourites.

Perfect blend of thrash and power metal. Great riffs. I also like Iced Earth (album), but this one wins.

My personal favorite - Caleb9000

5 Dark Saga

This album deserves more praise/recognition than it gets. The way I see it, Iced Earth's first three albums arrived at their logical conclusion on 1995's 'Burnt Offerings' - the epitome of Iced Earth's technical prowess and epic capabilities. Following that album, it seems that the next logical series should delve into a more ambient, varied, and melodic approach - this is where the Dark Saga comes in.

This has always been my favourite. I thought I liked Something Wiced better because that's the "popular" opinion, but then I listened to this masterpiece again and remembered that The Dark Saga is even better! Every song is either great or a masterpiece.

9 Framing Armageddon (Something Wicked Part. 1)
10 The Crucible Of Man (Something Wicked Part II)

The Contenders
