Re: Osama Bin Laden Dead

OK, I've watched the video and read through the website. That was sickening. I don't condone these horrifying acts either. Anyone that revels in these actions can rot at the bottom of the sea as well. And you can superimpose the same logic you used earlier on this scenario. These murderers had inter...

Re: Osama Bin Laden Dead

It's not about remorse or about the fact that he's dead. Nobody, including TAJ argued that Bin Laden shouldn't have been killed. The fact that I'm opposing is the way it went down. Because what does it say about our society once we start accepting that people can be executed without trial? And more...

Re: New Rhapsody Song For Free Download

I think Rhapsody would appeal to me if it were more guitar heavy.

Jon is a control freak. Any failure to deliver what is "expected" of an Iced Earth vocalist will surely be because Jon chose/approved of said melodies and vocal lines.
