We Kill At Dawn descends on its prey ready; to execute a massive attack. Issielle “ICE” Johnson’s flawless momentum triggers the fret board like a symphonic Metal horizon.

Samantha Hollins: In one word what are the sinister emotions around your chord progression?

Samantha Hollins: This song unapologetically rocks to the core. What are the scars that spawned the story behind We Kill At Dawn

ICE: The LIFE of a snow leopard.

Samantha Hollins: You play intricate things with such ease. How does that translate into the heavy weapon you unleashed on We Kill At Dawn

ICE: It’s all in the mind. I envisioned myself as a snow leopard; living an isolated yet dangerous life. You’re at risk everyday to feed your family and to survive. One slip, you’ll end up injured or dead. So I pictured myself jumping from rock to rock on high altitudes; unexpected enemies or prey. 

Samantha Hollins: How does the whole album connect to this song?  

ICE: Solitary is a statement of power and dominance yet being invisible but your presence is felt. We Kill At Dawn is that presence being felt.
