2 Sorry GuysClownRaven | 09/05/2007 | See all ClownRaven's reviews (10)For all of those who've been going around with a little prayer in their stomach, ready to give this band one more chance after that HORRIBLE last record...hoping that they'll pull it off next time and do something with the vocals...I'm gonna have to disappoint you. Im totally finished with this band now. It just feels so pointless going on now, when they sound like this...this wretched carcass of a band. They're just shadow of their old self now. Because the first thing that hits your ears when you put on "Ten Thousand Strong" is a wall of noise - the noisy and grotesque voice of Tim Owens! Throughout the entire song, this high pitch of a ravens caw continues to bug you til you either drop or turn it off! The remake of the Something Wicked-trilogy is neither particulary impressing and I must say I swear to the old version. The new one lacks punch, it lacks finesse and it lacks everything Iced Earth lost when they picked up Tim Owens.This is a very sad day for me. I wish they would pull it off but they didnt. And they will probably never pull it off again until they ditch that glass-breaking abomination that is Tim Owens.
