Often the band in question says it better than anyone: “Shoulder to shoulder you stand in the crowd. Facing the stage, its dark, blue and white beams of light are dashing up, down and side to side, fog is filling the stage, everyone starts chanting the band’s name. Then you feel the subs rumble through the floor, the blinding lights illuminate the whole venue and goose bumps shoot down your neck and arm as that Hard Rock wall of sound you crave enters your ears.” Hell, if that little intro doesn’t get you at least a little curious then you must have ice in your heart. So, who is this band? That would be Adelaide’s Ice on Mercury, on tour in support of their self-titled second EP. Music Man Megastore, Bendigo – October 4.
