Pittsburgh heavy metal band Icarus Witch and their upcoming, 6th record “Goodbye Cruel World,” which will be released by Cleopatra Records on October 26th. The record will be their first in 6 years and first to feature new vocalist Andrew D’Cagna (Brimstone Coven, Ironflame). The record also features drums by Jon Rice (Scorpion Child, Skeletonwitch, Behemoth) as well as a gorgeous duet with Katharine Blake (Mediæval Bæbes, Miranda Sex Garden) and the band’s first ever instrumental! Pre-production by Neil Kernon (Queensrÿche, Judas Priest) and mastered by Erik Martensson (Eclipse, H.E.A.T.)!
If you’re a fan of AOR bands like Ghost and The Night Flight Orchestra, trad metal like Maiden and Priest and heavy melodic rock like Eclipse, then you’ll dig this.
Having played with Black Sabbath & Queensrÿche, toured as Iron Maiden vocalist, Paul DiAnno’s backing band and featured guest stars such as Rainbow’s Joe Lynn Turner and Dokken’s George Lynch on previous albums — no US group combines traditional heavy metal and dark AOR like Pittsburgh, PA’s Icarus Witch!
