Description

Asclepius is the new album from the ever-evolving and adventurous collective Iceburn, who return with their first new material in twenty years
Much like the mythical ouroboros that appear in their music, Iceburn have come full circle, as guitarist/vocalist Gentry Densley (also of Eagle Twin & Ascend) comments, "Iceburn had always been about progressing and pushing the boundaries, pushing the music ahead of ourselves so we had to work to catch up. This new record comes from a place of rediscovery of who we are deep down, a place that with all it?s challenges and comforts, ultimately feels like home."

The rawness of Asclepius harks back to the days of their early records (such as Hephaestus), and fuses elements of metal, jazz, psychedelia, and rock with a seamless flow, monolithic riffs, swirling harmonies, and a groove that are the cornerstones of their sound.

Asclepius comprises two long-form tracks, "Healing The Ouroboros" and 'Dahlia Rides the Firebird', the latter is based on an old traditional Greek tune. With some members majoring in classics/philosophy, music/composition and studying ethnomusicology - classic mythology has always been a key reference point for the themes of their music. That the new record is named after the god of healing and medicine and arriving at this moment in time is coincidence, as the band comments, "It felt like we needed healing even before this pandemic hit."
