CD REVIEW I Am I

Band: I Am I
Album title: Event Horizon
Label: Candlelight Records
Distributor: PHD - Bertus
Release date: 17/09/2012
Release: CD

I Am I is a Heavy Metal band featuring ZP Theart, Phil Martini, Jacob Ziemba and Neil Salmon. ZP Theart is known best for being the lead singer for power metal band Dragonforce prior to leaving the band on March 8, 2010.

After leaving Dragonforce in 2010, ZP set out to form his new future band, I AM I. With Jacob Ziemba on guitar, Paul Clark Jr on drums and Neil Salmon on bass guitar. On April 16, 2012, the band released one of their songs from their upcoming debut album, Event Horizon, called "This Is My Life" on their official website. On May 4, 2012, I AM I released their first official music video for their track "Silent Genocide" off their upcoming album.

Which didn't get here until September due to shipping issues. So what to expect of the album? Well it sounds like Dragonforce (what isn't a big surprise) but without the "over the top" speed guitars and a lot more old school heavy metal (so more emotional). So I was disappointed with this one since I expected a lot more. It isn't that bad, but it certainly doesn't stand out.

61/100
