Icon In Me “Head Break Solution”


ICON IN ME
“Head Break Solution”
(Goomba Music)
Icon In Me seems like a veritable “who’s who” of Scandinavian metal celebrities. Reading their CVs might impress some but what it really comes down to is the music. Being sold as an alternative for people who like Pantera, Killswitch Engage and Hatebreed this shouldn’t be for me. I’m not really a fan of either mentioned bands. But it started promising in a Machine Head gone metalcore way. And I liked it. I liked it six songs in too but by the time I’d heard the whole album I remembered why I have a hard time with music like this. It gets repetitive over time if the band isn’t good enough in incorporating things to break the monotony. Icon In Me might be sold as an alternative to Pantera or Hatebreed. Personally I think they have more in common with The Haunted’s thrash metal than anything else. In the end the music impressed me enough to play it again, and again, and again. Anders Ekdahl
