That's probably why I liked them when I was in high school; they were one of the first "real" metal bands I got into. But eventually you've heard enough to see how little value, essence, or innovation most of Iced Earth's material possesses.
This may be a first. I agree with that.
Now, I still like some Iced Earth, but I like them A LOT less than I did 2 or 3 years ago. Huge case of a band growing-off me there. We have so little in common but I actually agree with what you said. Go figure.
