Horror Show is the sixth studio album from the American heavy metal band Iced Earthreleased June 26, It is a concept album based on classic monsters and horror-movie icons, including DraculaFrankensteinand The Phantom.
It was the first Iced Earth album to feature drummer Richard Christyand the only album to feature Steve DiGiorgio on bass, though he did not tour with the band. Horror Show is usually considered Iced Earth's only straightforward power metal release, as little of the Wolf - Iced Earth - Horror Show metal influence from the band's earlier works is present.
This album also featured more prominent usage of Matt Barlow's multi-layered vocals as a center point for the songs. There was a special limited-edition two-disc set. There is also a single-disc version with "Transylvania", but without the interview. The song "Dracula" includes the line "the blood is the life", a quote from Deuteronomy However, it is likely lifted from the version of Bram Stoker's Dracula which also features the line.
As in "Dracula", many of the lyrics are lifted straight from the 2016 Flow - Leh - Flow Mixtape they were inspired by. Unlike other releases, it features much writing from Matt Barlow.
By the end of the song "Damien" there is a section where Jon's reversed voice repeats the message that is also in the middle, silent section of the song. So, if the song is played backwards, the true message can be heard. This kind of reversed voice was also done by Iron Maiden in the beginning of their song "Still Life" of their fourth studio album Piece of Mind. The Initial Pressing was presented in a standard two-disc The Call - Various - Chillout Summer 2000 case with no reference to the tracks on the bonus disc nor the disc itself except for a sticker on the front.
Because "Transylvania" is moved out of the track list, "Dragon's Child" has its Wolf - Iced Earth - Horror Show ending, increasing its length. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
