Biography

There is more than one artist with the name Ikon;

1) IKON is an Australian goth/darkwave band that has gained an international following. Chris McCarter(vocals, guitar, programming) and Dino Molinaro (bass) began to create music as high school students in Melbourne, Australia in 1988. In 1991, their band Death in the Dark, which included Michael Carrodus on vocals, changed its name to Ikon.

Ikon has released five studio albums, five EPs and seventeen singles, with additional unique versions that have been produced for Germany, America and Russia. The band’s last full-length release, Destroying the World to Save it, attained number 21 on the Native DJ World Charts for best album of 2005.

IKON has frequently toured Australia, Europe and the UK. Ikon has played on the same bill as The Sisters of Mercy, H.I.M., Soft Cell, Death in June, London After Midnight and The Mission. Ikon has performed at the Eurorock Festival (2001) in Belgium and at the M’era Luna Festival (2002) in Hildesheim, Germany before an audience of more than 15,000 people. The band has also appeared three times at the world’s largest goth festival, Wave Gotik Treffen in Leipzig, Germany, in 2003, 2005 (during that year Anthony Cornish joined the live line-up on guitar) and 2011.

    Still as catchy as they were when I found them one year ago. I should propably try something besides 'Love,Hate and Sorrow' though.

    This band is incredible, I was always more into 80's gothic and postpunk, but I'll make an exception for this band every time. Astounding songwriters and musicians.

    Word's can't adequately express just how amazing Ikon's music is. Truly one of the finest acts to emerge out of 90's era gothic rock.
