Iconoclast is rock built to blast and last

IconoclastIt’s a Monday night, and the once rainy sky is clear, so I head out to see 4-piece Ottawa rock band, Iconoclast.

They are playing at Toronto’s Cherry Colas, for those who have never been, it’s a modern twist on a prohibition style bar and cabaret lounge.

And for those who don’t know what Iconoclast means, it refers to someone who participates in iconoclasm, the deliberate destruction of anything within their own religious realm. That’s basically what Iconoclast does in the rock music realm.

2013 has been a busy year for the guys from Iconoclast, having just released their new 5-song EP Are We Dying, opening for Theory of a Dead Man while touring across Canada.IconoclastSinger Marc BourgonAs soon as they started with their opening track “Nothing but Hell,” instantly the crowd was hit with in-your-face, dropkick to chest hard rock euphoria.

The backup vocals accompanying lead vocalist Marc Bourgon make for a quite powerful voice that’s tailor-made for the hard rock and sometimes metallic auditory assault that is Iconoclast.

If you want a refreshing change of pace, as opposed to the post-modern so-called drivel that is passed off as “hits” on mainstream radio; check out Iconoclast’s new album or next live show.
