Sons Of Liberty

Sons Of Liberty was a project that apparently had been brewing in the mind of Iced Earth mainmain Jon Schaffer for some time. He stated that this is all about the message, that message having to do with conservative policies, conspiracy theories, the power elite, subjects of which he would delve further into in later years. Make of the message what you will. Musically, this wasn't far off from prime Iced Earth, not bad at all but perhaps lacking a certain spark -- the songs motored along, with a certain anthemic quality to them, but arguably wasn't his best work. Schaffer himself sang quite competantly, though without the range of his regular singers like Matt Barlow or Ripper Owens. To his credit, he basically gave this music away, and whether you buy into the message or not, at least it provokes thought and debate.
