Portrait of CURSE ICON
Fans and media have praised Curse Icon for their distinct melding of elegant melodies, captivating vocals, and pounding rhythm. They are a dark-edged power group whose essence is defined by hauntingly dynamic vocals and rich sonic textures. With a unique style that bridges alternative, metal, and industrial genres, they shine in an otherwise bleak wave of today’s prepackaged music. Their songs are melodic and structured, embracing lyrics as a focal point. From the ambitious sensibility of “Broken”, to the melancholy surmise of “Down”, they have found a niche that sets them ahead of the curve. It’s their powerful live show, however, that burns a lasting impression upon the audience’s mind.

One cannot doubt the passion and power that embodies a Curse Icon performance. They take you from heaven to hell in under an hour. It is high-energy, engaging, and blissfully entertaining. Curse Icon has breathed new life into the Independent music scene by combining a do-it-yourself mentality, a musical sensibility, and and a compelling live show. Drawing on a myriad of influences, including bands like Sevendust, Disturbed, Stabbing Westward, Nine Inch Nails, Linkin Park, Evanesence, Lacuna Coil, and Led Zepplin, Curse Icon delivers a kick in the teeth that leaves you wanting more.

Put Pat Benatar into a metal blender, pour in some nails, then sprinkle it with daisy petals and you have lead singer Kiana. She is mesmerizing; bad-ass and sexy at the same time. Her dynamic vocals complement the band’s music by adding a refined attitude that is innovative, yet reminiscent of past rock goddesses. Her sensual concoction of power and melody intoxicates listeners as Guitarists Jason and Matt (aka "Legend") bring an aggressive assault to Curse Icon’s epic sound. Curse Icon’s ryhthm core features Bass Player James delivering a solid kick in the chest and Drummer Marco combining acoustic percussion with a mix of synth, loops and samples in an alluring pulse of rhythm. Together they weave their hard-hitting laments into a tight, marketable and cohesive sound.

Curse Icon’s release “paradismal” was nominated for best new album along with Nonpoint and other national artists in the 2005 Hard Rock Music Awards. They were one of the few regional acts selected to perform at 103.1 FM The Buzz Bake Sale with Korn, Sevendust, Nonpoint, The Used, New Found Glory, Story of the Year, and others in West Palm Beach, Florida. Curse Icon’s songs have been featured in independent movies, trailers, and other various broadcasts including Pro Wrestling Ohio’s TV broadcasts. Curse Icon won xXxRadio’s Best New Artist on an Independent Label in a peer voting contest. Curse Icon has been named the Best Local Rock Band and lead singer Kiana was named the Best Female Vocalist in South Florida’s New Times Reader’s Choice awards. They are regularly featured on numerous radio stations, including 94.9 Zeta (WZTA) and 103.1 The Buzz (WPBZ), Native Noise on 110.7(WMMS) in Cleveland and many other college, local, and variety shows across the country.
