Planet of Ice is the third full-length album from Seattle band Minus the Bear. It was produced and recorded by the band’s ex-keyboard player Matt Bayles and Chris Common at their studio, Red Room, in February and March 2007.

It is the first Minus the Bear album to feature new keyboardist Alex Rose, who replaced Bayles after he left to concentrate on his production career.

A video for the song “Knights” was released in August 2007, and can be viewed on the album’s website along with a full stream of the album.

A limited run of 2000 colored records was pressed and released by Suburban Home on vinyl imprint, Vinyl Collective. High demand led to a second pressing, which included a limited edition tour pressing.

    This cd is so great. Really love the ice theme and how the guitars have that crystalline shimmery sort of tone.

    as much as I love other MTB albums (including y'know, that controversial one) this is probably their most culminated/substantial

    Much darker than their other albums, I love it. Great wintery album opposed to Menos.

    I think I like Menos more now, but this is a close second.

    This cd just blows everything i ever knew about music out of the water. Takes you on a mental journey that will leave you wanting more. How these guys are not famous, I don't know, but I cannot stop listening to this cd and their past ones.
