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?

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:

    • For some reason the first song's melody reminds me so much of Last Christmas by Wham.
    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar  
    • New song 'Fearless'.    
    • Feel The Steel - Steel Panther
    • In My Darkest Hour - Megadeth
    • Yeah sounding not too bad at all.
    • Yeah, I'll wanna hear the songs in full before I pass judgement, but this could be good. 
    • That's a good point I hadn't thought of. Of course the hospitals are going to treat whoever comes in because it's the right thing to do.  Hospitals don't turn away people that make stupid choices.  I guess what I was saying above was really that it's just hypocritical for somebody who is unvaccinated, gets COVID and then heads to the hospital for treatment.  You didn't trust science and medicine enough to take the vaccine but now you want medicine and science to save you?   Insurance is probably a whole different issue and yes, that's out of control in addition to the whole medical billing system.  Those are issues for another thread
    • Cool tunes, particularly the first 'One.' Nice. I'll check this out. 
    • I'll add it to tomorrow's playlist and allow the hilarity to infiltrate me.
