ICON-EIGHT EP Available For Free Download

Misantrof, the "anti" label headed by CARPATHIAN FOREST bass player Daniel Vrangsinn, has added ICON-EIGHT's 2006 EP, "Thrash The Moment", to its list of releases, all of which, in keeping with the label's policy, are available for free download.

The four-track EP, along with the artwork, can be downloaded at iconeight.misantrof.net.

ICON-EIGHT was formed in Bergen, Norway in January 2006 by M. "Mactabilis" Wilson as a reaction to his boredom with the failure of underground black metal bands to recreate the ‘90's sound. After many years of involvement with various bands and projects in the Bergen area, MACTABILIS decided that the solution for him lay within the thrash genre, and "Thrash The Moment" was, unusually, written and recorded before searching for band members, so that Mactabilis' vision for the band would be clear right from the start. That vision was to play '80s-inspired thrash metal, but with attitude, power, and quality that would make it relevant to the present.

"Thrash The Moment" will become part of Misantrof's "Archive" section, which was set up to include material that was either rare or difficult to find, or that had historical significance, so that the music could be made easily, and more importantly, freely, available, while at the same time keeping it safe for posterity. Other bands included in the "Archive" are NIDINGR, ORCUSTUS, DEATHCULT, LIDSKJALV, HAGGIS, SLAVIA and AMOK, to name but a few.
