I would like to announce that Iced Earth Survivor is being prepared at the moment :) It will have pre survivor part of course which determines the amount of songs that qualify from each album into the finals. It will have artwork survivor part as well, because IMO Iced Earth album covers deserves it. It will start probably somewhere in the beginning of August, maybe faster so You have a lot of time for relistening Iced Earth discography. ;)

Hell yeah, I'd be in. Would you include Tremulant and bonus stuff though or just the LP's? Cause I'm not very familiar with that EP and for example the Frances the Mute title track

I'd probably include the EP & all the B-Sides in a separate "non-album tracks" division.

So that'd be:
-Cut That City [EP]
-Concertina [EP]
-Eunuch Provocateur [EP]
-A Plague Upon Your Hissing [DLITC]
-Ambuletz [DLITC]
-The Bible And The Breathalyzer [FTM]
-Frances The Mute [FTM]
-Abrasions Across The Timpani [SD]
-Caviglia [SD]
-Haruspex [SD]
-Back Up Against The Wall [TBIG]
-Birthday [TBIG]
-Candy And A Currant Bun [TBIG]
-Pulled To Bits [TBIG]
-Memories [TBIG]
-Things Behind The Sun [TBIG]
-Mr. Muggs [TBIG]

Oh wow, as someone who considers The Mars Volta (one of) their favourite artist(s), I should really look more into their bonus tracks, have not heard of most of those! This survivor would be a great opportunity to do that, though I quickly youtubed some of the stuff and it seems for example Caviglia is just a 2 minute passage with nothing really to it

It would be rather pointless; Cassandra Gemini wins and the order of the rest of the songs doesn't matter that much :neveruesthis:

lol pitchfork

to be fair, i would not give bedlam much higher of a score than that, except i refuse to listen to it and thus refuse to score it

But that's 8 songs though

Lol the highest rating they gave for a TMV album was Octahedron, their worst album, with a convincing 6/10!

Bedlam is the Bladecatcher of Blood Mountain. Groovy, but with very weird high-pitched vocal effects

i love it

imo TMV (with the exception of Frances The Mute) got worse with each album they made.

De-Loused In The Comatorium - 9/10
Frances The Mute - 10/10
Amputechture - 8/10
The Bedlam In Goliath - 6/10
Octahedron - 5/10
Noctourniquet - i can't get through the first track/10

Oh, don't get me started about how ridiculously the track has been cut on the CD version. It's not even in line with the song movements! That's like the sloppiest CD editing ever.

What's weirder is the reason why they had to split it up at all. Apparently they had to split it because they'd only be paid an EP's wages if they released a 5-track album. Like, I don't care what label you are, 76 minutes is not an EP. :lol

Hmm, I'm not sure if I can do this. Noctourniquet is super inconsistent for me as I love 3 or 4 tracks on it but don't really care for the others. Octahedron is the same but I only love about 2 and the others aren't as bad but the highs not as high either. Amputechture, Deloused and Frances are all god-tier for me (Frances being the 10/10) and Bedlam just a tad below it

Bedlam is my favourite TMV album and I'm curious about all the bonus tracks of that album that I've never heard before. It's like they had a second cd of b-sides. I was aware of all the other bonus tracks though.

They are not one of my favourite bands but I have listened to all their albums.
I never got Frances The Mute, I simply didn't understand the wasting of time in that album. I didn't have an explanation about 7 minutes out of 12 of Miranda or about almost 10 minutes at the end of Cassandra Gemini. It passed 8 or 10 years since I listened to that album and I've never did it in full probably. Plus, I downloaded a very bad recording of the album when I was 15 or something because of ignorance about what kbps would mean. I could try again to listen to it, but I have doubts about the reevaluation of certain moments of the album. Amputechture suffers from the same problem (always skipped the first and last track) but contains my two favourite TMV songs which are Tetragrammaton and Day Of The Baphomets.

Well, now that this thread is active again, I'm just gonna say that I listened to Bedlam again yesterday, & now I kinda agree with Parama. It's awful.

Also I've been having second thoughts about doing the survivor, since I only really enjoy the first 3 TMV albums, & even then I have heavily edited versions of all of them. :/
