An obscure progressive rock band established in Bad Kreuznach in the mid-1970s, existing for several years (only releasing singles) before an album in 1980. By this time, Ice had moved to more basic hard rock-styled realms in the vein of guitar-oriented Jane or Harlis. Ice's debut wasn't really any opus as suggested by the title, but is typical of this German genre. The band leader Alexander Russ later formed the heavy metal band Foxx and is now with the instrumental guitar duo Avalon.
