ICON IN ME — the Russian/Swedish/Danish modern metal band featuring HOSTILE BREED guitarist Dmitry Frans, Danish drummer Morten Løwe Sørensen (SUBMISSION, THE ARCANE ORDER, SCARVE, INSTANT CARNAGE, STRANGLER, SCARVE, SOILWORK) and Swedish vocalist Tony Jelencovich (M.A.N, ex-MNEMIC, TRANSPORT LEAGUE) — has inked a North American deal with the Chicago, Illinois-based label Goomba Music. The group's sophomore album, "Head Break Solution", will be released in the early summer. ICON IN ME is still looking for a suitable label to issue the CD in the rest of the world.
The drums for "Head Break Solution" were laid down at CBS Studios in Holsted, Denmark. 13 songs were reportedly recorded during the sessions, including "Wasted Ways", "Solid Child", "Face It", "Thousand Wars", "Flood Kills" and "Nuclear Drama". The CD was mixed by Ben Schigel (CHIMAIRA, DROWNING POOL, STEMM, WALLS OF JERICHO) and was mastered by Maor Appelbaum in Los Angeles.

A video shoot for the track "Un-Slaved" will take place at the end of this month in Moscow. The track features a guest guitar solo by Anders Björler of THE HAUNTED.
ICON IN ME's debut album, "Human Museum", was released in April 2009 via Massacre Records. The CD was recorded in November 2007 at Hansen studios in Ribe, Denmark and was mixed by Jacob Hansen.
According to the band's official bio, ICON IN ME's style can best be described as "modern metal with some thrash, death and hardcore style elements."
