I Am Streaming Full New Album

"Life Through Torment," the violent debut album from Dallas-based death metal/hardcore outfit, I Am, is nearing its independent release in just over a week and today a full pre-release stream comes online.

Following a two-year void since the early 2015 release of the "Memento Mori" debut EP, I Am will inundate the masses with maiden full-length album "Life Through Torment" on February 10th.

A brutalizing, by-the-throat album which consumes twenty-eight minutes through ten unrelenting tracks, "Life Through Torment" was recorded, produced, and mixed by Ryan Harvey at Red Oak Collective, mastered by Jacob Pouttu, and bears artwork by Grayson Altom and design by Benjamin Hoagland.

I Am comments that the album is: "No games, no bullshit, just straight in your face heavy metal. We wanted this to show who we are and what's next. A direct reflection on each of our personal lives and what we see. This is Life Through Torment. We hope you enjoy." More...

I Am Posts "Life Through Torment" Video

Dallas-based vicious death/hardcore outfit I Am just released a new video for "Life Through Torment," the title track off the band's debut album nearing independent release on February 10th.

Captured amidst a bombardment of fists and feet flailing within a writhing mosh pit of fans as I Am performed the track live, the video was filmed by Travis Kuykendall and Chad Lee and edited by Kuykendall.

Issues the band: "Our first music video was shot at a taqueria so it only seemed fitting to do the next one at a pizzeria. J&J's pizza shop had a cool basement they let people throw shows in. 'Life Through Torment' was the first song we wrote off the album and it's just an ass beater. We're not trying to be the coolest band or most popular. We're just trying to make badass music and tour the world making friends." More...
