I Am I - Event Horizon

Surprised not to see any reference to this one on the forum. I didn't expect to like it due to the Dragonforce connection and the fact that I hate Power Metal and its twee, chanty choruses. However, having listened to a few songs, it sounds really good; a bit hard rock, a bit metal, with some really decent tunes.

 

Bizarrely, the album only appears to be available on USB from the band site, but it looks like quite a nice thing to have.

 

The band site:

And a few tunes:

 

 

 

Anyone else rate this?

I know music is all about opinions, but I find it bizarre that something that sounds really average (to me) like Icarus Witch gets plenty of replies, yet a new, interesting band (again, to me) gets none. Unless my comments on other albums have led people to the conclusion that "if he likes it, it's probably shit". Which would be fair enough. :D

 

I'll try once more ... here are some reviews that may generate a bit of interest in this one:

Alright, alright - you've convinced me to check this out. If I end up really liking it, I shall blame you entirely :)

I finally got around to checking this out and yes it sounds pretty good. I'll see if I can track it down...cheers...

 

Does having the album on a USB appeal or not?

Not really...I'm pretty much a CD only guy...I missed your first comment about the USB...hopefully it will come out on CD as well...

Yeah, I would be too, usually, but this looks pretty cool:

Yeah sorry mate I'd already listened to this band and knew they weren't for me. Decently played bordering on power metal, but this wouldn't get repeat spins for me.

Hm, backed. They sound typical, boring euro power metal to me.

Fair enough fellas. Didn't sound like PM to me, but I'll have another few listens to make sure.

I'd like to have it, but a bit pricey for my cheap arse...

Not so sure about this one now, sounds like it has a few fillers, so I'll probably download the best tracks.

Speaking of which, this one rocks like a convention of bastards:
