Profile Another of the new brigade of Spanish bands making their presence known throughout the melodic rock world are this interesting bunch from Zaragoza called Ice Blue, created in the late 2000´s by five experienced musicians coming from well-known bands such as “Pedro Botero”, “Black Haze” or “Danger”. Along this time and coinciding with the recording of their first record, the band has been working on creating their own style, improving their songs and staging to be able to give the right performance to their shows, where fireworks are relevant.

Their music can be placed into A.O.R. or Melodic Rock, powerful rhythmics and catchy melodies in keyboards mixed up with a characteristic guitar sound, typical from american rock bands, such as “Bon Jovi”, from the 80´s. This kind of music combines perfectly with the original voice of the vocalist, who has been awarded with many acknowledgements in local contests (1st prize in many of them) and that in several tracks will remind you of Jon Bon Jovi. Lyrics are full of love, but with a little bit of darkness and mystery too reflecting the enchantment of the night and their inhabitants hiding in there.

In the early 2001´s a demo from the band reaches Vicente Corral, chairman of Vinny Records (Santander) and offers the band the recording of their first record contract. We have opened show act for bands like Casanova or Europe.

Ice Blue have a certain charm about them, some would interpret as youth and energy – perhaps both of them rolled into one. Musically though, these guys are talented, the musicianship unquestionably superb, and there are some lovely moments throughout. Worth a try!!!
