EYE AM is made up of Crowbar vocalist and guitarist Kirk Windstein, guitarist/vocalist Kenny Hickey, drummer/vocalist Johnny Kelly of Type O Negative/Silvertomb, and former Crowbar bassist Todd Strange (who also played alongside Kirk in Down). Showcasing a unique combo of low-and-slow metal with bolstering vocals, the group utilizes the unique strengths of its members, along with a heavy emphasis on spontaneity and intuition. The group traveled to New Orleans to celebrate the release of their new single, and gave a special fan a once-in-a-lifetime experience to be part of the trip in a giveaway following up to the release.Following the success of their first release, the band will release “Cryptomnesia” on November 24th along with a music video.
With a soft, acoustic intro jolting into heavy-hitting guitar riffs and face-melting vocals, “CRYPTOMNESIA” feels like a total slap in the face in the best possible way. Tuning into the group’s heavy influence of intuition and spontaneity, the song centers around the mantra, “And into your arms, I commend my life. And after your death, I take back what’s mine.” It is a perfect embodiment of what makes EYE AM truly spectacular – their ability to combine familiar tones with new, innovative ways to express their love of rock and roll and metal – and create something spectacular only within a matter of days.“Prepare for a heavy, dark, and cold slap of some serious Heaven and Hell, Sabbath-inspired wrecking ball of a song.” -Joe Klamka, host of Concrete Spew Cryptomnesia will be available on November 24th, exclusively through Corpse Paint Records.
