whats the bonus track on FA??


I was going to ask the same thing...


It's nothing special, just The Birth of The Wicked from the Overture EP, listed as track 20. Also if you look next to the upc code, this version (the jewel case version) was made in Mexico. Never seen anything other than Mexican stuff made in Mexico. Most albums I see are either US or Japan or Germany or some place. Oh well.



An obvious bootleg. First of all, they said that song would be on Pt2, and secondly, the bonus track is in a different font, and the wrong colour, without shadow.

If it's an official release it's a drab one, but i wouldn't be surprised considering it's from Mexico.

Anyway, I love this set, even if they are the remasters, they would still look fantastic in my collection as the box set. Saves buying all those EPs and special editions for the extraneous bonus tracks.

The version of Framing Armageddon which I bought from the Manchester concert is the digipack and made in Hannover, Germany. Also it doesnt have the Licensed to Scarhorow label that the one in your pic has. Another difference is that SPV is on the spine on mine but not yours.  Very good pic by the way. Thanks for letting us all see how different it is to the digipack version.

I guess it is a fake, very good fake but fake none the less. Another example of fakery is the booklet. There is no mention of the bonus track at all, not even writer or music credits, nothing whatsoever.  Most albums with bonus tracks at least give credits to the song, not necessarily lyrics but credits at least. Also the cd looks professionally or factory manufactured. It does not have a printed from printer label stuck on it, it actually looks authentic. Of course I don't have the actual digi to compare to.

The digipacks disc doesnt have any writing round the edge, it simply has a logo of steamhammer and underneath that is white writing saying:

P 2007 Steamhammer, a division of SPV GmbH
C 2007 Iced Earth. Made in Germany

SPV 98182 CD

The P and C are in little circles, this writing and logo are on the left hand side of the CD dead in the centre of the left half if you cut it in 2.
Sorry about not being able to put a picture up, I dont have a charged up camera at the moment.

Back to Slave To The Dark (sorry for getting off topic). I just won it on ebay for $135!! New and Sealed!! I think that was a hell of a deal (that price includes shipping which was only $6 anywho) considering most places will be over $200 and most folks on ebay have it at at least $150 before shipping.  Anyway, it will probably be sometime next week before they even send it out as this is the 4th of July weekend.

Welp, got the box set today, it is one hell of an awesome package!! I don't care that IE doesn't endorse it, it just fucking rules! And yes to those who don't have it or haven't heard, Iced Earth, Night Of The Stormrider and Burnt Offerings are all the remastered versions, so no spoken word part in Before The Vision. Still one hell of an awesome set. That is my only gripe, if they are going to release what they consider to be everything they released by IE, than the original unremastered versions should have been included. It would have only been three more discs, but what can you do. I already have the originals, and Dark Genesis and now this set. Don't know if IE gets money from these sales (well they wouldn't from me as I bought it on Ebay, but the guy I won it from had to have bought it himself, giving IE their money if they do get any from this box set. I would have bought it from an actual place like Amazon but they wanted like 285 bucks or something for it, so I saved a shitload of money), but still I am loving it especially the lp style discs. The multi discs have Side A and Side B, ha, that is awesome!

PS: Does any one who doesn't have these or seen good close ups of the discs wants me to scan them? I will if you want so you can see their awesomeness!

Here is the Night Of The Stormrider disc....

Do you have the 2 disc Burnt Offerings? Cause that is what comes with the box set. All 14 discs (not the dvd, though it's been available on it's own for a while, there is even a topic about the dvd in this forum somewhere) are available as their own for folks who don't want to buy the box set and want just certain albums. They all (except for the dvd) are mini lp type cd's. So that may be the one you got.

I have the "Tribute To The Gods" album. It's the same one that appears in the box. It's really cool, the extra artwork and the mini lp cd's...  Cool  i actually thought about buying that box because of this.
