THE ICE - Touching The Void

Location: Köln, Deutschland
Release: Street Survival / Countdown Recs, 2009

Taking it's name and main influence from fellow countrymen in True Blue, german THE ICE were together from 2007 to 2012 with 2 records out: the MMVII Demo and Touching The Void MLP. In 2011, they headed back to the recording room (for a possible new 7") resulting in 2 new songs: one entitled have hearts (feat. Eddy Sutton) made into HHF's Sampler and the other casting shadows into a Promo Tape sold on their last tour.

In Touching The Void they added slow spacey parts in intros and in between songs with synthesizers which I found pretty damn cool, it helps set them apart from other similar sounding bands, but dont be mistaken the heavy riffs are there. The production here is also outstanding, musically and visually!

In the past, they shared members with Settle The Score and Cheap Thrills, now Christian sing in Look My Way and Mr. Vega plays the synth in this jazzy band.
