Feeling a bit camera shy


The music of Ikonoclast contains a power and emotion that flows like blood, pumping slowly and constantly through the veins, your vital organs, your heart, your soul. The songs emphasize honesty and a sound that reminds us that music has the ability to inspire us to the limits of our imagination.
Keyboardist & vocalist Shane Hayes conceived Ikonoclast in 2000. His unique vision of music drove him to write his own material. He met drummer Brandon Nalewajek in 2001 and together they began a new and epic style. The two molded a sound that evoked the raw power of Type O Negative, the psychaedelic edge of Pink Floyd, and the musicality of Rush together into one well-formed unit. Bassist Matt Hicks and guitarist Tim Busscher joined in 2004 and brought the necessary skill and creativity to complete the group.
In live performance, Ikonoclast is an energetic force that draws the audience into its celebration of music. The members seethe with emotion and violent expression, thrashing and head-bashing as they flow through songs like The Diagnosis is Grim and Two-Sided Coin.
In the studio, Ikonoclast consistently records and writes new material. The members prefer the home setting to professional environments, and have their own recording space. The band has several projects in the works including a full-length album, the self-titled Ikonoclast, due March 2005, and a 2-song demo, Hello:The EP.
With Ikonoclast, life is music. Most of the members perform in other bands and all 4 strive to sharpen their musical craft on a daily basis. After all, music is a form of expression, and with Hayes, Hicks, Busscher, and Nalewajek, effective communication is everything.
