Steel Assassin deserved more success than they received.
I liked his ex-wife's band, Sinergy for a minute years ago as well:
Ohhh yeah, in fact it was his precursor to Sons of Liberty, possibly the only metal album approved by The John Birch SocietyI think The Glorious Burden was the album where I stopped liking them. And iirc a lot of the songs and lyrics were rah rah America patriot nonsense so this isn't a surprise.
Yes and no. Other members of Iced Earth are probably in agreement with his take but not super vocal, especially since Matt Barlow (longest running frontman) is a cop in Delaware, and plenty of the other members have also been involved with Schaffer's Sons of Liberty project (which was so right wing it hurt).If his bandmates agree with what he did then fuck them too but if they honestly don't and his participation in the terrorist attack cost them from making a living then I do feel bad.
