ICED EARTH - Night Of The Stormrider Gatefold LP (Blue/Back/White Splatter Vinyl)
Regular price €19.99
Iced Earth's "Night Of The Stormrider" is a power metal essential, like, on the top 10 most essential power metal albums. The orchestral start of "Angels Holocaust" is something you'd not expect in metal and so well done and so epic/beautiful, Iced Earth may as well be classical composers as well. I think a lot of what contributes the epic sound and feel to "Night Of The Stormrider" is the E-flat tuning, making E minor (arguably the default key in metal) sound like E-flat minor, and so on. Flat and/or sharp keys have quite a different tone and feel than natural keys and that is just what Iced Earth needs for their unforgettable sound.
