Ictus music career started in Bremerton WA 1980 with a very heavy sound and big production.  They recorded their album, Icarus, in Seattle and had a very popular song "The Ice Age Cometh".  They played in front of sold out houses in the greater Kitsap areas and Olympia.  They then started playing concerts and night clubs in the Seattle market and branched out to the mid west which included Denver, CO.

“The Ice Age Cometh” was one of GGregg'ss original compositions which we played in Ictus (it was very well received).  We did manage to land a spot on one of KZOK’s “Best of the Northwest” albums in 1981 with a song called “Lookin’ Out for Number One”.  If I remember correctly we recorded the track at a guy’s basement studio outside Port Orchard on a huge old Ampex 2 inch 8-track tube-based deck (wonder where that is now?)
