Apparently, he's going to re-record and re-release the first six Iced Earth albums with the current line-up as he doesn't own the master rights to them and therefore he has no income from their sales.

And I hope it is. "Enter The Realm" has been released at least 3 times in its current form: "Dark Genesis" in 2001, "Slave To The Dark" and "Enter The Realm Of The Gods", both in 2008. I'd say that's plenty.
