Iced Earth - "Watching Over Me (live)"

It was a sad day when Matt Barlow left Iced Earth a few years back. Being a fan of the band, I had come to love his voice and the way it fit the music so perfectly. He was replaced by Ripper Owens (formerly Winter's Bane and Judas Priest). With Owens, Iced Earth released a re-recording of the "Something Wicked Trilogy" as well as the full length "Framing Armageddon - Something Wicked Part I." Now, Owens is gone and Barlow is back. All is right with the world. Anyway, the band has begun performing live again, and there is some fan shot footage of "Watching Over Me" from May 11, 2008 at the Rock Hard Festival at the Gelsenkirchen Amphitheatre in Gelsenkirchen, Germany. It is about as good as cell-phone footage can get, and they sound great.
