Iced Earth Live In Ancient Kourion DVD Released

Share This:

When you write songs as epic as Iced Earth do, then it’s only fitting that your first  full concert live DVD was filmed in a 6000 year old amphitheater.

Yes, there’s a DVD release of their Alive In Athens concert from 1999, that their then label Century Media released in 2006, but  main man Jon Schaffer never endorsed this or supported it and felt cheated by the label for releasing an inferior quality of one of the most revered live recordings in metal.

This new release, is a far cry from anything that could be called inferior. Beautifully presented in a limited edition deluxe book, the entire concert is available  in DVD and Blu-Ray format and includes a bonus disc with extra features. Then there’s  2 bonus discs of the audio version (4 discs in total). If that’s not enough, the audio recording is also being released as a 3 coloured vinyl gatefold. The audio CD’s and footage will also be available to purchase separately.

Say’s Schaffer, “I feel this is a testament to a new beginning, a new energy and a rock solid determination that will see us taking the music of ICED EARTH to every corner of the globe; spreading the awareness of our brand of metal in a way that hasn’t been done before. I’ve never been more proud of this band, our crew, and the people behind the scenes that are responsible for much of our success.”

The performance was filmed in Cyprus on August 19th last year and goes for 2 and a half hours. Specially created scenery and art adorn the stage adding to the atmosphere of playing in such a sacred theater.

Iced Earth Live in Ancient Kourion is available now through SPV records.
