It's called "The Blessed and The Damned" and it's set to be releases August 10th. Here is some more information:

Century Media is proud to bring ICED EARTH fans the first-ever ‘Greatest Hits’ collection from one of the scene’s leading metal acts. This double CD compilation contains 23 tracks featuring over two hours of remastered material spanning the band’s Century Media career. Russian fantasy artist Leo Hao (Blind Guardian, Iced Earth) has created an original piece of art allowing either angels or demons to gloriously grace the cover. The Blessed And The Damned contains a 20-page deluxe booklet that includes lyrics and extensive biographical liner notes by former Century Media publicist Loana dP Valencia. Detailed herein is an introduction to where Jon Shaffer and ICED EARTH are today by taking a look back at where they have been: Jon’s early days beginning with Black Sabbath and Kiss records at age four, his decision to dedicate his life to music, his first guitar, his move to Tampa, Florida at age 16, the first incarnation of ICED EARTH and how they overcame obstacles, failures and successes. Each album is discussed in detail including what at the time was happening to the band and includes commentary from mastermind Jon Schaffer.

“A musician’s autobiography is his music – everything else is only a footnote… Throughout the course of nine albums and one EP, Jon Schaffer has offered us – his fans – interpretations of the truths in his own life. In this compilation, each song leads you through his understanding of his [Jon Schaffer’s] struggles, disappointments, joys and his triumphs.” – Loana dP Valencia taken from The Blessed And The Damned booklet.

Must....Buy....CD!!!

Wow, after listening to this album a couple times, I just have to say that this is one of the best greatest hits cd's I have ever heard. The whole thing justs flows together alot better than most other greatest hits ever do. This would be a great cd for someone who's new to Iced Earth to start out at.
