Thousand Strong' is my personal tribute to
one of the greatest Heavy Metal bands of recent years, the
awesome ICED EARTH and it's members, past & present. The site
will also contain a few details on Jon Schaffers other project
the excellent DEMONS & WIZARDS
which I consider to be an extension of the IE Realm.
The site is in no way intended as anything other than an
unofficial personal tribute to this awesome band and it's members, so if you're after the real
deal then head on over to the official site www.icedearth.com
for all of the upto date news on the band and the full IE
sure you also sign up to Minions Of The Wicked which is the
Official Iced Earth Fan Club, becoming a member gives you access to the
most upto date information on the band and it's members through their
blogs and the forum.Use the link on the left to transport yourself into the Minions Of The Wicked.
I'm Steve aka
Nomad your webmaster and creator of this little corner of
the ICED EARTH online realm. I hail from the midlands in the UK although I'd one day love to move to central Wales.
I've been a big fan of IE since I picked up a copy of ' Horror Show' on
release a few years ago. I was then lucky enough to see them play live
at the Scala, London in January 2002 (to this day it is still one of
the best gigs I've been to) from then on I was hooked and found myself
obsessively hunting out their full back catalogue!
I had been toying with the idea of creating a UK based fan site dedicated to ICED EARTH for quite some time, but until 2007 I'd never really been able to produce something I'd be pleased to share online.
dabbled with a couple of fan sites in the past and used to run both
Blazefans.com (the official Blaze fansite) & Folkmetal.com (Skyclad tribute site) until outside pressures led me into
early retirement from my online duties. However, after a few years away
and a some huge changes in my personal life, that yearning to create my
own little corner of online Metal Fandom finally persuaded me to
dust down my trusty old laptop and get my web head back on.
here we are with my small online tribute to one of my personal
favourite metal bands. I hope you enjoy browsing the site
as much as I'm enjoying creating and updating it.
free to get in touch with any comments or thoughts
you may have on the site.
