Review


Additional info
The filming for this DVD was only done with a three-camera shooting and even Jon Schaffer says that it's not up to the Iced Earth standard. The mainman says that it was always their record label Century Media's idea to do the DVD.

When Century Media announced that they were putting out Iced Earth's "Alive in Athens" DVD, I was both excited and intrigued. Why wait 7 years to release the best live Metal concert ever recorded? Anyway, Jon Schaffer stated that this was purely the label decision; the band had nothing to do with it.

However, his talk about this DVD not being "up to the standards of the band" is a joke. The truth is that since Iced Earth is now signed with SPV Records, Century Media can do whatever they want with Iced Earth past discography; and they did. A compilation has been released recently, and now this DVD. Well, in 1999, the band had its best lineup with Matt Barlow , Brent Smedley , Larry Tarnowski and James McDonough alongside John Schaffer .

Probably linked to the release date when Ripper was the full-time vocalist, MS takes line-up data to albums automatically. Should be fixed, yes

Oh, I see, I was confused there for a moment.
