Iced Earth announces new singer

In the wake of vocalist Matt Barlow ‘s retirement, dozens of demos and resumes flooded Iced Earth ‘s management team. But one name kept popping up – Into Eternity vocalist Stu Block (pictured below), who has been named the new lead singer for Iced Earth .

According to Schaffer , Robert Kampf , Ceo of Century Media , early on suggested Block , whose band Into Eternity was previously on the Cm label. That reminded Schaffer of one night in September 2008 when Into Eternity opened for Iced Earth .

“ Iced Earth was backstage waiting to go on,” said Schaffer.
