|The on-again off-again Icarus Witch are on again, with two members from the Songs For The Lost lineup (the only other disc I own from the band). I remember reading that Quinn Lukas had put the band on hold while he completed his degree in mortuary studies. Anyway, I keep thinking Christopher Shaner was in at least one other band whose name we would recognize, but can't think who offhand (want to say it was not a traditional metal band like IW). On Rise, the sound is a bit more modern, a little more commercial, although the band's roots are still clearly in the '80's. It's almost like they're making a muted attempt to get on the radio ("New Revolution" is a big anthem), but it obviously didn't happen. Nothing wrong with the songs or the performances, and Shaner is actually an upgrade over Matthew Bizilia, but ... I dunno, they sound like what they are: a fairly nondescript, Rust Belt power-metal band. They're just kinda "there."
