I Am God
Released: n/a, GoldenCore Records/ZYX Music
Reviewer: Celtic Bob
Dark and Melodic, the way a Metal album should be.
Exorcism are a new band and I AM GOD is their debut album and introduction to the world. At first I was expecting to hear some doomy stoner Metal with early Sabbath influence. What I got wasn’t too far off.
There is a bit of a Sabbath influence but Dio era. This latter era Sabbath influence is mainly in the vocals. It as though Zvekan is channelling Ronnie at times. Nobody will ever be able to imitate RJD but his influence here is very prominent. It is not as though he is copying him, it is just that there are similarities between the two.
Musically their style is hard to describe. There is a bit of the Doom Metal there but not in the forefront as much as I had anticipated based on a pre-release clip that I heard. Heavy, melodic bass and guitar throughout that make it more a traditional Metal album but with Classic Hard Rock feel (think Rainbow, Purple...)
To summarize I AM GOD into a few paragraphs is difficult. You can name out the diverse influences on different parts or songs but as a whole it is it’s own album. Exorcism have issued a killer debut album that will satisfy all Metal fans. Guaranteed.
