The formidable driving force behind I AM I is singer ZP Theart. A founding member of the renowned UK metal act Dragonforce, he made four studio albums and a live record with the band and toured the world for a decade, eventually performing to audiences of up to 85,000 people. His time with the group also saw him nominated for a Grammy in 2009.
The time I have spent with E.P has resulted in me agreeing with them to a degree, but possibly not entirely. The groove metal formula the band use as a base is something that is much rarer these days than it should be, and PANTERA style riffs mixed with the song structures and aggression of someone like a MACHINE HEAD works quite well…
It’s been a while since controversial East Coast death metal quintet Cannibal Corpse last visited Dublin. Almost eight years by my reckoning.
