"Metropolis Mindfuck" is released on the 18th of August 2014 on the birthday of its creator Alan Wicks. Happy Birthday Alan.
Static Icon's third album "metropolis mindfuck" is a sonic odyssey spanning twenty years. It is the story of the new millenium's end of innocence. It captures all the brutality, beauty and truth of lives pressed up against a backdrop of industrial dark club beats and vast sweeping strings.
The most personal album by far, each track is a snapshot of life spent in constant migration through the cities of a Europe in rapid decline.
This is the soundscape of a city, of human evolution, of a man made hell.
