Perth melodic metallers Icarus Lives have just unleashed their blistering new single Secret Keeper, an eruption of mesmerizing vocals, melodic leads and crushing riffs in a high-impact dynamic package.
Representing a bold and assertive new direction, Icarus Lives are taking no prisoners with Secret Keeper. Showcasing a tantalising blend of traditional metal and melodic rock elements, the band is unafraid to explore drama, angst and vulnerability amongst the flurry of ferocious riffs, monstrous solos, catchy melodies and a pummeling rhythm section.
Secret Keeper also unveils the group’s new vocalist Aria Scarlett, whose multi-octave vocals shine through the crushing heaviness like shards of explosive power; juxtaposed by Bassist Chris Aylings’ magnificent rapid-fire gutturals to create an emotive call and response dynamic. Exploring the stages of grief and the insidious isolation that comes with the territory, the group bares it all in hopes to connect with others who may feel the same hopelessness.
