Amsterdam based For I Am King combine furious metal riffs with distinctive melodies, pounding drums and female vocals. Their message is simple: ‘just metal’, based on friendship, work ethic and passion. Since forming in September 2013, For I Am King have quickly built up a strong following and are well on their way to reach their goals!
To give the world a first glimpse of their music and potential, the debut single ‘The Beast Within’ was released in October 2013. The song gathered prestigious feedback from the press and the public for its technical and musical mastery. Before playing a single show, For I Am King recorded the debut EP “Revengeance” which was released in May 2014.
In January 2014, For I Am King played their first show and quickly started making a name for themselves in the Dutch metal scene. The band achieved a highlight in May, when a professional jury selected For I Am King (among 120 other acts) out of more than 1500 participating bands for a spot on the biggest traveling music festival of the Netherlands ‘de Popronde’.

For I Am King toured the UK in early 2015 were a part of the Shake The Earth-tour. Finally in July, For I Am King played the Headbangers Stage of the almighty Wacken Open Air in Germany.
