Ex-ICED EARTH singer Matt Barlow rejoined his former bandmates on stage last night (Monday, March 19) at Soundstage in Baltimore, Maryland to perform the song "Watching Over Me". Fan-filmed video footage of his appearance can be seen below.
ICED EARTH played its final show with Barlow at the 2011 edition of the Wacken Open Air festival in Wacken, Germany.
Barlow announced his departure from ICED EARTH in March 2011. In a heartfelt statement, he cited his commitment to his family and the need for ICED EARTH to tour more as the reasons for his retirement; however, he committed to performing with ICED EARTH on all 2011 European festival dates, including Wacken Open Air.
Current ICED EARTH singer Stu Block (formerly of INTO ETERNITY) made his live debut with the band in November 2011.
ICED EARTH is continuing to tour in support of its latest album, "Incorruptible", which came out last June via Century Media. The cover artwork for the disc (as well as additional illustrations to every song) was created by David Newman-Stump from Skeleton Crew Tattoo (pencil illustrations) and Roy Young (colors).
The North American leg of ICED EARTH's "Incorruptible" tour features support from SANCTUARY and KILL RITUAL.
