Just because it's Top Albums season doesn't mean you get any reprieve from new metal. Bands are releasing material this late in the year, with no regard for lists or critics at all.

Ice War gives no regard on the Battle Zone 7-inch. These two songs embrace rock, not self-awareness. Sole member Jo Capitalicide, has the prerequisites for the same kind of retro-auteur thinking that Midnight and High Spirits both espouse: he can write a riff, and he does a damn fine Gene Simmons impression, especially on the first song, "Battle Zone."
