Iced Earth re-record Dante's Inferno for free download

Wed, 14 September 2011

Legendary metallers Iced Earth have re-recorded their entire 17-minute epic 'Dante's Inferno' with plans to give it away for free on their official website, reports MetalTalk

Iced Earth kingpin John Schaffer said of the move:

"If there's one song fans have asked us to play live more than any other it's 'Dante's Inferno. The simple reason why we haven't is because the original click track was erased, therefore requiring a keyboard player to do the parts live. That's OK for a special event like when we recorded 'Alive In Athens', but to hire a keyboard player for a full tour, for one song, just isn't financially feasible."

Last month Iced Earth's record label, Century Media Records withdrew their entire catalogue from online streaming service Spotify & the somewhat outspoken frontman had much to say about the decision.
