Canadian Speed/Heavy Metallers ICE WAR, has just signed a deal with Fighter Records for the release of their 4th album “Defender, Destroyer“, which will be released on June 16th, 2020 on CD & 12″LP formats.
ICE WAR is formed solely by Jo Capitalicide (also in APHRODITE) after the dissolution of its previous band IRON DOGS in 2015 and since then he’s been releasing demos, EP’s and albums without rest, highlighting the three full-length albums “Ice War” (’17), “Manifest Destiny” (’18) and “Canadian Classics” (’19) until in early 2020 he signed with Fighter Records for the release of his 4th album “Defender, Destroyer“.
ICE WAR brings back some faster and more aggressive sounds, associated with the previous incarnation in IRON DOGS. “Defender, Destroyer” is a crude Speed/ Heavy Metal with a Punky twist. Influences range from SAVAGE GRACE, S.D.I., RAZOR, IRON ANGEL, to even the 1st HELLOWEEN EP from ’85. The cover art of this new album was made by the famous fantasy painter Didier Normand and a new updated logo of Daniel Porta.
Tracklist for “Defender, Destroyer” is as follows:
01. Power From Within
02. Defender, Destroyer
03. Soldiers of Frost
04. Rising From the Tomb
05. Mountains of Skulls
06. Crucified in Fire
