According to RockOverdose.gr, ICED EARTH‘s August 19 concert at the ancient Kourion Amphitheater, outside Limassol in Cyprus, will be professionally filmed and recorded for an upcoming CD/DVD release. Tickets for the show are limited to 1,500. The show will be three hours in length and all on-stage scenery and artwork will be uniquely created for this special event. Veteran producer Jim Morris of Morrisound Studios (ICED EARTH, SEPULTURA, MORBID ANGEL, DEATH, SAVATAGE) will fly from Tampa, Florida to supervise the entire audio section with the help of the ToneDeaf Recording Studio.
