Album Review

A web search on the band Icon presents very little in the way of factual or biographical information. The facts that are presented include their place of origin (Arizona) and that they were together from 1982-1989. But these details you don't necessarily need to know. What you do need to know is that they rock, hard and furious, and could go punch for punch, song for song, with any of the so-called heavy metal giants of the era. Icon could decimate anything Ratt or Mötley Crüe put out during this time, and the band holds a place on par with Judas Priest and W.A.S.P.'s output. Sparing no expense from start to finish, the band digs in with sonic claws of steel forged from the gods of heavy metal thunder and lightning, and doesn't let up until the last notes of the melancholic power ballad finale "It's Up to You" fades away into the mist like a sunset on the Pacific Ocean horizon. Stephen Clifford may sound a bit like Kevin DuBrow or Blackie Lawless, but that's a mere oversight compared to what this record has to offer. For fans of an era gone by who still searching the vaults for hidden treasures, Icon includes several gems that bear repeat listening for a long time to come. It's essential listening for those who missed it the first time around.

Customer Reviews

Are we talking about the same band?

After listerning to the exerpts of these three songs on this EP, I am wondering if a mistake was made. The description mentions bands like Judas Priest and W.A.S.P., but all I hear is electronic music that has nothing to do with rock music.

Confused like same band

Growing up in Chicago during the early and mid 80's you could not go with out getting a little metal. Guitar bands like steeler, priest and metallica were there. Ever hear of "The Thirsty Whale". Yes there was a band named Icon and they were to be heavyweights, powerful was not enough to describe them. This ICON is not the same HELP !!

This isn't anything by ICON from Arizona

get it right! and get some real ICON on Itunes I downloaded from you guys their 1984 Bootleg Live... now I can't find it on my account.
