ICED EARTH (USA/FL)


The band began life in Indiana during 1984 titled PURGATORY with a teenage garage band line-up of vocalist Gene Adam, guitarists Jon Schaffer and Bill Owen, bassist Dave Abell and drummer Greg Seymour. Another ex-PURGATORY man bassist Richard Bateman also made a fleeting appearance and he was later to find prominence in AGENT STEEL and NASTY SAVAGE. As the transition from PURGATORY to ICED EARTH began the band were still very much a horror shock outfit wearing cassocks onstage and dousing their audience in liver and blood as part of the theatrics. Thankfully these tactics were soon resigned to the past as ICED EARTH concentrated more on the music. ICED EARTH's first official effort was the tape that secured their career and landed them a deal with Germany's Century Media Records. The 'Enter The Realm' demo. First commercial product, a Tom Morris produced self-titled album, arrived in November 1990.
