Metal After Midnight: Iced Earth “Declaration Day”
American Metal band Iced Earth have always had an infatuation with our country’s history, particularly in our wars and fight for independence.
Guitarist Jon Schaffer has been very outspoken over the years about our government and cites Ron Paul as a politician he admires. He is a supporter of the Constitution and our founding fathers. In 2009 he put together a politically driven project called “Sons Of Liberty”.
Some might argue politics has no place in music, but in cased like “Iced Earth” it has been the inspiration for some intense and emotional Heavy Metal.
