Sensory Records will be releasing Waves Of Loss And Power, the first album in over two decades from New York City-based Progressive Rock/Metal quartet Ice Age, via CD and digital format on March 10, 2023.
Originally formed on Long Island, Ice Age began as an instrumental outfit under the moniker Monolith in 1991. By the time Prog label Magna Carta/Sony signed the band, Ice Age had fully developed their unique sound, which led to 1999‘s The Great Divide. This was followed by 2001‘s Liberation, and extensive touring, after which the band took a break.
In the late 2010s, members continued to stay in close contact and made new music with no agenda beyond pleasing themselves. Now, progressive music label Sensory Records is responsible for the band‘s return to releasing music. The material that comprises Waves Of Loss And Power finds members wearing their varied influences on their sleeves and lyrically, it takes on “existential conflict” and “social commentary.”
Engineering for Waves Of Loss And Power was principally handled in-house by Jimmy Pappas, with mixing and mastering by Rich Mouser (Spock‘s Beard, Transatlantic, Dream Theater). The cover art concept and booklet design were brought to life by Bjorn GooBes of Killustrations, with a fresh new band logo by Thomas Ewerhard.
Josh Pincus (lead vocals, keyboards) states:
With age and experience come additional wisdom and maturity (hopefully)…we‘ve always been about writing memorable songs and presenting challenging ideas within the progressive rock genre; with Waves Of Loss And Power, we‘ve really achieved that goal. We‘re extremely proud of it.
