As I May – Hero – Single Review

The Finnish melodic-metal quartet As I May released the single Hero on the 4th.

As I May

As I May

I am aware that I have mentioned it previously though I don’t feel it is repetition for the sake of repetition to comment that musicians from Scandinavia are often able to deliver music which combines what on the surface are polar-opposites that can’t possibly work, yet turn it in to a concept of intrigue and complexity that fascinates – very often melodic-metal.

In HeroAs I May provide the listener with a dark underbelly of fire that opens its wings and glides gracefully through room like a sparrow-hawk searching for prey.

The collaboration found them surfacing with the track Hero which reflects on life as part of the 99% in a world dominated by the 1% in an intriguing conceptualisation that if the people stopped allowing themselves to be playthings set one against each other for the pleasure of the avaricious – there may well be an opportunity to force change.

The third of the ten tracks, Hero unifies the rock and indie influences, which they are able to translate into a just over three and a half minute track that fizzles with energy.

As you know, most bands when initially reviewed are very new and the attrition rate is, as to be expected high, with many no longer being together a year after the review, so it is a pleasure to be able to celebrate with an out-fit that has stood the test of time. From the five track EP – It’s Kiwi Time – the closer – Hero.

It’s Kiwi Time – EP – Kiwi Time is available on iTunes.*
