"This is a seriously heavy album with a seriously brutal album cover," says Jon Schaffer of Plagues OF Babylon. "I'm sure it will go down as a classic in the epic Iced Earth catalog. We feel that the package with Sabaton and ReVamp is very strong and we are very excited to tour the U.S. and Canada again and kick some major ass!"
