Behold the Wicked Child (5:38)

Cover of The Crucible Of Man: Something Wicked, Part 2

From The Crucible Of Man: Something Wicked, Part 2

While the 1998 album provided a general overview of the story, Jon Schaffer has been conceptualizing for well over a decade. The saga is being fully brought to life with the release of the back-to-back conceptual albums “Framing Armageddon” and “The Crucible Of Man.” While both albums provide answers to mysteries the previous releases would create, the timeliness of the story in today s world is guaranteed to keep people thinking and guessing. Schaffer s ability to convey the central themes and events of the story without always revealing exactly why characters decisions are made and how events come to pass, will keep fans of the saga coming back as future mediums for the “Something Wicked” storyline are revealed.

The Crucible Of Man is the culmination of the storyline. The absolute pinnacle of the American Metal Powerhouse s career, and happily the full-length return of singer Matt Barlow.

    quite a decent track, a bit too slow though for the opener but I suppose Iced Earth dont usually put a really fast track as track 1 often

    Horrid songwriting... sounds like it was written in ten minutes. Don't get me started on the mix either.

    Not a bad track. Not my fave by any means, but still good. I love opening, the leadup to it from In Sacred Flames is pefect.

    this song is good in parts and bad in others...I dont think its strong enough to be the opening track, cant even really explain why , dont hate it or anything but i want something which flows better and is a little heavier for an opening track. I suppose Dark Saga wasnt fast and heavy and that was a good track :P

    Don't know if I just need getting used to it ... imo, the new album is somewhat boring. :/
