West Australian based Female Fronted Melodic Metal band Icarus Lives had a huge 2018, opening for heavy metal royalty “PAIN” and hitting the road in Japan with The Agonist and Cellar Darling.
2019 saw the band dominate Australian audiences, returning to Sydney, a strong introduction to Melbourne, with crowds yearning for more.
Influenced by modern metal superstars such as Evanescence, Lacuna Coil & Bullet For My Valentine, Icarus Lives perfectly combine clean, catchy vocals with crushingly heavy riffs, blistering guitar solos and pounding drums.
The band consists of Sara Murray on vocals, the twin lead guitar attack of Cameron Michael & Cohen Dennis and the thundering rhythm section of bass player Chris Ayling & drummer Naomi Treacy. Renowned for their no BS approach to their live show, you can always expect to see some pure craftsmanship in their on stage presence, once described as “Masters of Metal” upon their live release of their debut album Vantablack”.
Icarus Lives’ debut full length album “Vantablack” and single “Collision of Counterparts” are available at all good online retailers and outlets. The band aim to push overseas markets in the future, including Asia, Europe & the USA whilst continuing to strengthen their Australian and overseas following.
Icarus Lives charged into 2021 with the release of their rendition of “Holding Out for a Hero”, originally performed by Bonnie Tyler, and have received many praises, both internationally and on their home turf.
With an upcoming album due for release in the near future, Icarus Lives are showing no signs of slowing down.
