Following the excellent album Something Wicked This Way Comes, Iced Earth released The Melancholy EP including the studio versions of excellent ballads such as 'Melancholy ', 'Watching Over Me' and 'I Died For You' but also three covers and a previously unreleased live track from their must Alive In Athens.

Rating: 9 I really don't understand why I can't stop listening to Melancholy! this might be the 20th time I'm listening to it. I guess I can live with Iced Earth as long as they have powerful ballads like "Melancholy"I've always had problem with comprehending their music, no matter how hard I tried, until I stumbled upon this EP and I'm sure I've made the right choice by giving it 9/10
