Icecast doesn't actually do anything with your sound files.  What 
happens with the artist data is up to whatever application is doing the 
streaming to the server.

If your filenames are in good order, then you might want to take a look 
at Tag & Rename which can go through and add the proper tags based on 
the filename.
