IO Exclusive Album Stream: Dew-Scented’s “Icarus”

Steve Jobs may have introduced the iMac, iPod, iPhone, and iPad, but Leif Jensen and the rest of Dew-Scented pioneered iMetal: starting with their 1996 debut, Immortelle, each and every album has been given a title starting with the letter “i”. That consistency and familiarity is a hallmark of Dew-Scented’s distinctively European death/thrash attack, and continues on their ninth album, Icarus, due out next Tuesday, July 31st. Blasting drums and ripping guitars bump up against a classically thrash take on societal dissatisfaction, pushing harder and further than you’d expect from a thrash band.

Check out Dew-Scented’s new full-length below; we’ll have it streaming here all week. Use as needed.
