Iced Earth — Incorruptible

Estimated reading time: 2 minute(s)

★★☆☆ This is a welcome step-up from IE’s previous album “Plagues Of Babylon.” No huge surprises here, although it is nice to see the band eschewing their concept-album fetish, opting instead of a traditional collection of thematically disparate tunes. By and large, what you’ve got here is smooth sailing aboard the S.S. Power Metal… when the winds are right. That’s sadly not always the case, but the obvious sloppy chop is easily enough forgiven.
