Keeping the Fire of Iced Earth Strong - Words with Jon Schaffer

Iced Earth, over the course of the band's roughly twenty-five year sojourn, has become the working epithet for guitarist and songwriter Jon Schaffer. As the band begins to solidify their lineup and re-ignites their fanbase with last year's "Dystopia," Iced Earth seems rejuvenated and ready to continue their march as the vanguard of speed metal's underground. Jon sat down to talk about his band then and now, his side projects, and what it took to get here.

Editor's note: It's worth noting that the views expressed here are Jon Schaffer's own, and are not endorsed by BloodyGoodHorror.com

M.DREW: Your tour is you guys, who are the speed metal veterans, then Hellyeah, who’s an echo of Pantera, and Volbeat, sort of the heavy metal Elvis. What kind of fans are showing up to this show?
