"If there's one song fans have asked us to play live more than any other it's 'Dante's Inferno',"
ICED EARTH mainman Jon Schaffer said. "The simple reason why we haven't is because the original click track was erased, therefore requiring a keyboard player to do the parts live. That's OK for a special event like when we recorded 'Alive In Athens', but to hire a keyboard player for a full tour, for one song, just isn't financially feasible."
This summer, during the recording of "Dystopia", ICED EARTH's soon-to-be-released 10th studio album, the band entered the studio for the express purpose of remedying that situation — and emerged with a powerful rendition that's (if possible) even more monumental than the original, which was the closing track on the band's 1995 album "Burnt Offerings".
"We wanted to say, 'Thank You' to all of our loyal fans who have waited so long to hear us play 'Dante' again,"
said Schaffer. "So, we decided to give this to them, free. It's because of our fans we've been able to make music all these years. This is a way to show how much we appreciate them."
Schaffer promises "Dante's Inferno" will be back in the band's setlists for all upcoming shows on the 2011-2012 World Dystopia Tour.
