S.S. I Am The
One To Go That Way, One To Stay Always
Street: 04.13
S.S. I Am The = Chevelle + Tool + Sepultura-esque percussion
If you were to classify S.S. I Am The as a metal band, the first thing you’d have to realize is how much more melodic they are compared their wail-and-thrash brethren. They have a dark sound, but the melodies are almost ethereal: dreamy, and virtually intoxicating, even when the song turns heavy. There’s a hint of Latin in the percussion, and scales that at time seem almost Indian. Even though it’s only a demo, the sound is great and instrumentation is perfectly balanced with the vocals. A great taste of what can be expected from a full album later, and likely to leave you wanting more.
