Hey, this aint no “follow up” number, this is a the other arm getting a shot; this is the Slave Vows era of the Icarus Line getting its I’s dotted. A sort of finality at play here, “Avowed Slavery” is the companion release to 2013’s well received SLAVE VOWS album, this completes the circle of fury.With the video release of “City Job” at the end of 2013, and the Slave Vows album still making people talk, it was time to put these songs to wax, prepare the world for The Icarus Line's next move. Five tracks spread over the two sides, this mini album serves as a Slave Vows booster jab, the feral verocity of the last album is in spades here, maybe even more so, the fire in the band’s belly is roaring, and its only when the last track closes down do you realise quite fully, the impact.

9/10 Mike Staff review, 11 July 2014
This new Icarus Line EP is being touted as a companion piece to last year's 'Slave Vows' LP, which wasn't so much a return to form as a career peak for the band, distilling their hypnotic, tribalistic, violent noise punk sound into its most potent shapes yet. 'Avowed Slavery' continues that momentum with five brand new tracks full of that vitriolic swagger that they've been refining all these years.   They're doing it all right again here, setting a violent tone with 'Leeches and Seeds' before 'Junkadelic' is an immediate highlight; a throbbing, repetitive krauty determination striped through the bubbling stew of Swans-ish misanthropy, anarchic 'Fun House' brass and primitive no-wave guitar abuse. 'Raise Yer Crown' which follows it is a stalking Birthday Party-ish stomp with a neon scrawl of wah fuzz simmering all over it. 'Salem Slims' is like The Heads gone '70s rock, swaggering riffs and insanely overdriven guitars, before they're back into the Swans-esque lurching and mystical hypno-drift for heady closer 'The Father/The Priest'.   It's a strong set of songs. If you liked 'Slave Vows' then I would recommend it. If you've not heard that album yet, though, I'd go there first.
