ICARUS WITCH’s third full-length album Draw Down The Moon is to be released February 9th via Cleopatra Records/Koch Distribution. The nine-track album sees the band in a more mature, yet increasingly aggressive song writing mode, stripped of the extraneous bells and whistles of synths and samples and just straight-up rocking out! The band was recently described as having a “Heavy influence of Iron Maiden combined with good old fashioned hard/rock metal production and great musicianship” by Don Jamieson, host of VH1 Classic’s That Metal Show.
