Rarely do we come across bands with women fronting them, and with For I Am King we see Alma Alizadeh stepping in and delivering something extraordinary. For I am King, a Netherlands based Metalcore outfit, have come out with their sophomore album, I. The album is signed up with Redfield records and was released last December the 7th.  Their debut album Daemons won them much applause and launched them well and gave them the opportunity to play at Wacken Open Air.

Have you ever tried screaming? Well let me tell you, it is not easy, I’ve tried plenty of times and it takes a lot to bring out whats in one’s mind to one’s voice, and Alma kills it! What comes out as its result is brutal Metalcore with plenty of ambience added keeping this record heavy and straight. Metalcore as a genre restricts itself within the realms of odd time sequences, breakdowns, melodic riffs and a clean interlude.

For I Am King‘s eagerly anticipated second album “I” will be out December 7, 2018 on Redfield Records. After the first precursor ‘Prey’, released in May, the new single ‘Forever Blind’, out October 5, is one of the band’s most metal tracks to date and represents the new material perfectly.

The music video for ‘Forever Blind’ can be watched below.
