Jon Schaffer of Iced Earth checked in with The Age Of Metal


Last week I had the opportunity to see live Iced Earth live again as they are now in the road with Volbeat and Hellyeah, the curious of this tour is that they are not headlining as many would think they will be. Iced Earth is not a band that regularly acts as support for other …
