The Finnish melodic-metal quartet As I May released the single Hero on the 4th.
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 Hero – As 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.
Both from the USA – Jon Wax is an indie rock creator and BINK$ WIN$TON is a hip-hop performer and they came together to release an indie-hop track.
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 alt-rock quartet, initially introduced when less than year into formation, originally from Belarus who formed Kiwi Time when they moved the the USA celebrate four years as a band tomorrow.
KiWi Time – fourth anniversary
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.
