ICARUS VISION - Burning In Flames
ICARUS VISION - Sunblood
... formed in 2001 specifically to fill a support role for Rock Legends ‘Rainbow’ - and they enjoyed it all so much that they continued on for the next two decades!
They are rightly recognised as one of the ‘original’ Original EA Acts and their incendiary performances in their first decade of existence is widely credited for having opened the doors of local EA venues, who at the time were entirely focused on cover bands. The plethora of brilliant original music that has since flourished in the EA region stands as a testimony to that fact.
ICARUS VISION have had only a few line-up changes in their long illustrious career and the current three-piece set up of WEBBY (drums) , SCOTTY .J. (guitar) & SHANNON CROME (bass & vocals) is the longest-running and most memorable of them all !!
Their style of music is an uncompromising blend of Alt Grunge & Classic Rock influences , with the smoothness & technique of SCOTTY J’s guitar playing acting as the perfect counter weight to the lunatic aggression of Shannon’s performance style and the full-on heavyweight punching power of Webby’s drumming.

They have famously eschewed putting their tracks out via the usual routes , instead their classic tracks such as ‘No Reason’ , ‘Deep’ and ‘NeverSmile’ have been passed along via word of mouth , videos on social media , and being covered by other EA bands. Rumour has it that they are planning to finally record their debut album THIS YEAR , but long-time fans remain unconvinced.
“ Yeah... we’ve heard that before. “ said one fan we spoke to. “ but I won’t believe it until I have it in my hands and can shove it down my pants. “ He continued gamely.
ICARUS VISION will be playing on the Saturday Stage of THE NORWICH AIRFEST at B2 , on the 4th June !
