    I posted in Politics thread, but a quick cross-thread comment on Jon Schaffer and Iced Earth.
    http://gtxforums.net/showthread.php?p=162669
    Jon is in jail awaiting trial and seems Iced Earth is no more.

    Pity as they were a band that was still going well, I really liked Dystopia and Stu (ok that was 10 years ago!)
    Only standout songs from last couple albums were "If I Could See You Now" and "Clear The Way".

    In doing a search I found I posted about seeing them play on Jon's birthday March 15. Well he just had a birthday behind bars.
    And to quote Jon's lyrics from Glorious Burden - High Water Mark

    It's Over Now, We Are Retreating
    I Never Thought That We'd Be Beaten
    All This Blood Is On My Hands
    The Thousands Dead Due To My Plan
    I am responsible, all of this is my fault
    I Thought Us Invincible
    Is This God's Will After All?
    I Look Across This Blood Soaked Land
    All This Blood Is On My Hands
    God Forgive Me, Please Forgive Me
    It's All My Fault, The Blood Is On My Hands

    Never got into Iced Earth, but man, there do seem to be a lot of older metal guys going hard-right these days.

    Yeah you’ve gotta be careful where you tread in the genre these days, although it seems the worst of it is confined to the sphere around Norwegian black metal.

    There's a fair bit in the nu-metal world too, and Dave Mustaine turned into an absolute lunatic as well.

    My wife was pretty heavily into the glam metal scene in Hollywood back in the late 80s/early 90s. From what I gather, a lot of those folks have gone Trumper/alt-right as well.
