Dead Icarus, the new project of former Atreyu vocalist Alex Varkatzas, has shared a video for the new track “The Vultures Circle.”
“Hands down, this is the heaviest song I’ve ever been been involved with,” Varkatzas said. “It’s an ‘F you’ to the cancel culture that has infected society. ‘Savior, saint, sinner or thief. Live long enough you’ll die one of these.’ It doesn’t matter what’s living inside you; it’s just about what people wanna believe.”
Dead Icarus previously released the single “Sellout.”
A staple of Ozzfest in the mid-2000s with two gold albums and powered by Alex’s distinctive screams, Atreyu is one of the defining bands of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal, alongside groups like Avenged Sevenfold and Lamb of God.
Dead Icarus signed a worldwide deal with MNRK Heavy.
