3Icarus WitchIcarus Witch is a heavy metal band from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States, formed in 2003 by bassist Jason Myers.

Not exactly well known, but they are a Heavy Metal band formed in 2002 that plays like a Traditional Metal band. They started an underground movement called "The New Wave of Traditional Metal", which to me, is like the NWOBHM Part 2. They have opened for big named bands such as Queensryche and former Iron Maiden singer Paul Di'Anno. - ryanrimmel
