Should we just shut down this site or what? I dont see people on here anymore Sad Then again it has been a while since my last logon. I've been trying to keep up on the site but with work, girlfriend and moving on to other bands because Iced Earth hasn't done shit since 2008....well, lemme just say Im not exactly happy with what Jon calls "progress".

But I am awaiting a new album!

Anyway more to the point.

Should we just cut our losses and just put this site away? Or are there still lovers and lurkers out there?

We need input!  Shocked

Well, it was a long time since my last log in^^
But same here... New bands, school, exams, competitions... It's hard to find time for everything, plus the fact that IE haven't done anything, so we don't have much material to discuss...
But I wouldn't like this forum to close down. I always liked forum itself as much as guys here :]

yeah well I tried posting here for some times even if none of you guys answered to it, so after a while I quit.

I mean: the new album is coming and stuff, but actually: Barlow quits a second time and stu block is here: that would have been something to discuss, but the thread is pretty lame and the people here don't actually seem to give a shit.

I wouldn't like to close down this forum either, but no one really seems to care about it anymore...so...I don't see any sense in it.

most of the true members actually added eachother already on FB so we'll stay in touch , no matter what!

I wouldn't like to close the forum, but, to be honest, it's quite dead... Hopefully there's more action when the new album comes out!

Very Happy

Just what I wanted to hear.

Cool

I never want to shut this site down, I have hopes for Iced Earth and their fanbase as well. I've given up the dream about making this the official forum, because, well, to be honest, we metalheads just aren't good at foruming Confused

We've had our times of somewhat daily posting. But never has this site gone up more than about 15 active posting members. Take a look at our memberlist XD There are definitely more people signed up that have 0 posts than the active ones.

Maybe Stu Block is just the beginning, maybe its just another temporary. but I hope Minions becomes alive once more....

Rock on, Minions!

I actually think that he will seriously kick some ass...just like schaffer. I think, with the new album, we have something to discuss again...the posts about the last one where just es boring as the album itself (oh sh***, I hope Schaffer didn't heard THAT ^^)
we will rock Set...you can bet your ass we will Wink

I hope it will be a good album. I really was disappointed with the Something Wicked series as it finally got spelled out. That's why I haven't continued on my SW story....I guess it was a dumb idea to re-write copyrighted material. And I've pretty much given up the idea of ever getting to know Schaffer in any way whatsoever. Interview? Failed. Numerous e-mails to webmaster about failed interview? No replies. Numerous e-mails to Iced Earth's web manager about Minions of the Watch? No replies.

Talk about a shitty fan community.

To be honest, we metalheads really get offended easily and tend to outburst in anger a lot. Well, the majority of us anyway... [or maybe it's just me....  Rolling Eyes ] I'm not saying I did any of that, but really I'm just tired of being ignored.

I'm really concerned about the future of the metal community as well as life in general. Me living in the United States, for example, as I see the economy collapsing in a matter of months, perhaps a few years at most.

But enough ranting from me.

The bad thing is that, although metalheads claim to be as tolerant as it gets, they're not. Not at all! We're the worst of all, just talk to a metalhead about pop or hip hop (or even metalcore) and they'll flame these genres for at least 10 minutes, just because it's not "real music", it's mainstream, you know? ;D
I consider myself a metalhead, but I listen to everything. "I don't listen to metal, I listen to music", that's what I say...

Back to topic, I think the new album will kick ass, thank God (or whoever you want Razz) it's not a concept album! I liked Framing Armageddon a lot, and Crucible Of Man was good, BUT I'm just tired of the same lyrical AND musical themes. So I'm really looking forward for the new record Very Happy
