Something Wicked This Way Comes is the fifth studio album by American heavy metal band Iced Earth, originally released in July 1998 by Century Media.
Something Wicked This Way Comes introduced guitarist and main songwriter Jon Schaffer's fictional Something Wicked Saga, which would be later expanded upon by the band. The last three songs (Prophecy, Birth Of The Wicked and The Coming Curse) make up the "Something Wicked" trilogy, which introduces the central figure of the saga, Set Abominae (who also appears on the album's front cover).
Burning Times, Stand Alone, and My Own Savior are fine slabs of the classic metal/thrash metal combination the band has become known for. Watching Over Me (which is about Schaffer’s childhood friend who died in a motorcycle accident), and Consequences show the band breaking new melodic ground, with Disciples Of The Lie and Blessed Are You two of the albums truly memorable songs.
