Witch Ripper release new single “Icarus Equation”

Seattle, Washington-based sludge/stoner metal band Witch Ripper have revealed their new single “Icarus Equation,” which comes off the band’s forthcoming new album ‘The Flight after the Fall’ (out March 3rd, pre-order).

Here’s more from the song reveal, “The title of the track ‘Icarus Equation’ hints at the ancient Greek mythological character Ikaros, who flew too close to the sun on wings held together by wax during a daring attempted escape. The wings melted and Ikaros fell to his death, and the story is generally used as a metaphorical warning against having unrealistically high ambitions.

Witch Ripper guitarist and vocalist Curtis Parker comments on the fresh track, “The new single, ‘Icarus Equation’ was the first song written for the new album. I think that we rewrote the final part six times before we landed on what’s on the record. We’re incredibly happy with how that ending turned out. ‘Icarus Equation’ represents perfectly how our two vocalists can not only juxtapose against each other but come together in unison – like we do on the bridge. In the story of the album, this song represents loss. A loss of life and a loss of wanting to carry on. Our protagonist is at his lowest during this song. That being said, we wanted to show that there is a light at the end of the tunnel by ending on a giant major key ballad-style moment.”
