|Breaking Illusion - I Am One (Single 2015) Review|| |
Breaking Illusion - I Am One Single (2015)
Running Time - 3:59
Last September I reviewed the debut album 'The Event', from Hertfordshire, UK based three piece band Breaking Illusion, which was originally released in 2013! If you wish to read that review then please click on this link;
They are now back with new single 'I Am One', as a precursor to a soon to be released EP, and it showcases a much harder sound from this young band. It is a simpler affair but no less enjoyable than the progressive tinged Groove, Alternative Rock & Metal of the album. 'I Am One' is full on Modern Metal, a mid pace stomper of a track with a very good riff and excellent middle eight. Vocalist/Bassist Richard Airey has also found a much harder edge to his voice and it works extremely well. Breaking Illusion have also addressed the main problem with the debut and that is the production. This has a much fuller and thicker sound given them the edge that was missing before!
Obviously it's not easy to review and score just one track but 'I Am One' is a big step in the right direction for me and I look forward to the new EP with much interest!
