Finnish modern metal act AS I MAY are releasing their second album “My Own Creations” on July 26, 2019 via labels Rockshots Records (Italy) and July 24th Spiritual Beast (Japan). The sophomore full length is a fast-paced blend of modern metal with metalcore highlights. It’s heavy, melodic and unique; and sonically more mature than AS I MAY‘s previous release “Speak No Evil” (2017). Working on writing music that is easy to identify with a digital atmosphere, AS I MAY make their listeners headbang and sing along to the catchy choruses.
Paying homage to many old school metal bands, In Flames fans will find a special affinity for this Finnish act.
The band’s third single ‘I See You In Me‘ follows their previously released tracks ‘Cure Is Worse Than Disease‘ and ‘Pride Goes Before A Fall’ off the upcoming album. Both songs already have over 100,000 combined Spotify streams.
The band explains the track:
“It’s a pretty hard-hitting melodic song with an orchestral touch. It’s the most Finnish sounding track on the album with a melancholic catchy chorus. It tells the story of a man that views something familiar in the mirror and what he has been hiding.”
