Sporting identical black shirts and red ties on the cover of their EP Red & Black Attack, the Icarus Line look frighteningly like a Knack cover band. Thankfully, that's not the case. Based out of Los Angeles, the Icarus Line scream their guts out about some of the grimmer aspects of paranoia (as opposed to the brighter sides of it). With these four songs, there's hope for an original, gimmick-free hardcore act (take heed, Nation of Ulysses and Ink & Dagger).
