ICED EARTH new album 'Incorruptible' out in June, cover artwork revealed


US metal masters ICED EARTH have revealed the cover artwork for “Incorruptible”, their brand-new studio album that’s going to be released on June 16th! The stunning artwork (as well as additional illustrations to every song of the new album) was done by David Newman-Stump from Skeleton Crew Tattoo (pencil illustrations) and Roy Young (colours). 

“Incorruptible” is ICED EARTH’s twelfth studio album. Jon Schaffer describes the new output as being on par with the band’s most favourite albums “The Dark Saga”, “Something Wicked This Way Comes” or “Dystopia”. And we can only agree here. The first two new songs will be released on April 28th and April 29th! So keep your eyes and ears open! Just three more weeks to go!
