BORN LIE'. In recent years, I.C.O.N has shared the stage with Diamond Head, Voodoo
Six, Blaze Bayley, Sworn to Oath, Witchfynde, Furyon, Zico Chain and a host of
other rock and metal artists. The band have appeared on SKY TV, BBC Radio, Total
Rock Radio and appeared in rock press such as Metal Hammer and Powerplay magazines.
Two tracks from the album appear on the worldwide smash PC game MOTORM4X and lead

"Full blooded heavy metal" Subculture, BBC Staffordshire
"The band mash together an
effortlessly nasty blend of post-modern hard-edged Pantera style aggression and
classic Black Sabbath dark melody. There are hooks aplenty. One of the finest metal
onslaughts to come Overplay’s way for ages" Overplay.com
"I.C.O.N hammer out riffs with integrity
and honesty. Their debut album should be worth investigating" John Tucker,
