ICARUS WITCH
CAPTURE THE MAGIC
MAGICK

The nine-track offering by the torch carrying metal troupe Icarus Witch bares no surprises, as the quartet’s unabashed heavy metal assault hits right between the eyes much like their ROSES ON WHITE LACE EP. Harkening back to the glory days of majestic metal a la Dio and Queensryche, CAPTURE THE MAGIC embrace the old school approach with little alteration, creating an enticing array of metal that, despite taking much of its influence from the ‘80s, doesn’t sound all that dated or forced. They even employ six-string metal heroes George Lynch (Dokken) and Frank X. Aresti (Fates Warning) for a shot of star power, but ultimately it’s this Pittsburgh group’s classic metal leanings on tracks like “The Ghost of Xavior Holmes” and “Darklands” that shine brightest.
