Band: ICED EARTH
Composition: Something Wicked (Trilogy), including the following
songs: Prophecy, Birth of the Wicked, the Coming Curse...
Music & Lyrics in all songs by Jon Schaffer
Century Media Records 1998/ Century Media Records 1999
Album: Something Wicked This Way Comes/Alive in Athens ...(by the way, for
transcribing the songs I’ve been using the same from Alive in
Athens... all the songs are the same, but it’s easier to transcribe live
versions... so, here must be some differencies, between the live songs and the
originals, but remember: these are the live versions!! Enjoy!)
All guitars tuned 1/2 step down (of course)
