In an interview with Metal Underground’s Daniel Becker, openly Pagan bassist Jason Myers of Icarus Witch describes his spiritual influence on his music.

“I’m a practicing pagan and witch…”  “I needed to form a band that would encapsulate both the traditional styles of metal as well as being able to incorporate some of the pagan ideals into it.”

“We write lyrics about where we are- naturally and spiritually as well.”

When asked about his fellow band members, Jason said that the rest of his band is on the same page;

I think there is an undercurrent of pagan spirituality throughout the band. I mean I’m a practicing witch and there are others in the band who have similar religious and spiritual beliefs. It’s significant to us in that way…

The band, formed in 2004, is currently on tour in North America with original Iron Maiden front- man Paul Di’Anno. Icarus Witch’s clean, classic metal sounds shine through in their new album, Draw Down the Moon. The album is now available for download on iTunes, Amazon.com, and of course, at your local record store.
