History of the band "Ice on Fire"
Initially formed (in 2010) by Monica on vocals, Stefano on bass and Franco on drums. They looked for two guitarists, which they found after two long years: Marco and Fabrizio
Sharing a passion for heavy/power metal, they decide to continue with their efforts to propose a less niche kind of metal
The group draws inspiration from historical bands like HammerFall, Helloween, Edguy, Stratovarius, passing related genera such as heavy and neo-classical metal, with cover of bands such as Judas Priest and Yngwie Malmsteen.

Finally got to "put on the track" the group with a good repertoire of covers, I at the end of 2013 Ice on Fire began developing their own songs with great enthusiasm!!!
Guidelines for the texts: Optimism / Enthusiasm, a little protest against human negativity, a figurative abstraction of the soul and its dreams

Totally self-produced and recorded in Montichiari at its headquarters.

Why Ice on Fire?
Here's the philosophical aspect that led us to this oxymoron:
(For the uninitiated) The power metal is a musical genre metal claw, has evolved over the years 90 ' and is generally characterized by a marriage between powerful rhythmic, fast, stuffed with drums "rich" in double bass drum, and (apparently in contrast) by a "soft" melodic line comes mostly from classical compositions. Also the theme vowel is usually characterized by a sang "clean" and called, solfegio singing.
Here's how then comes the idea of representing this genre with two elements essential to human life (as it is for us the music)
ICE as the "powerful" of metal. ..
FIRE as the hot part and melodic.
Then Ice on fire equals Power in Melody ...
