Let's kick some Ice!

Category: Music

Anyone remember "Iced Earth"? Mediocre US "power metal" band known for repetitive chugging chords, horror themed music and one of the worst 9/11 songs this side of country? Well, their band leader is a covidiot and domestic terrorist and has been arrested for the latter. » Continue Reading
