I Am Infamy is a Metal band from Seattle, Washington. Formed in 2010, they currently have four members: Michael Vanson (vocals), Mario Curay (guitar), Taylor Saulness (bass), and Davis Bonebrake (drums). Since their formation, they have released the EP I Just Want To Hurt You. This is a rather long EP, lasting a total of 28 minutes and 29 seconds and contains nine songs. The EP is available on the band’s bandcamp page. Also be sure to check them out on Facebook.

I really like the transition from their opening song to the first full-length track, Night Terrors. The opening riff in this song is great. The guitar work in this song doesn’t seem that complicated but it’s still enjoyable. Vanson does a great job delivering high-quality vocals of different types. The chorus is pretty catchy. 2:59-3:34 contains a really nice piano instrumental that is unexpected.

The Arsonists is a decent track. I found the intro riff refreshing. The clean vocals that are solid. I’m impressed how Vanson can do various types of vocals (highs, lows, and cleans). I like how the bass seems to be audible around 2:30. 3:10-3:19 has a very nice piano piece with some sick drumming by Bonebrake in the background.

Drowning In An Hourglass starts out surprisingly slow. The clean guitars are a unique addition. It’s nice to see them experimenting in their songwriting. The song picks up to the band’s normal pace at 1:35.

Shedding Skin starts out with some brutal vocals. I found the rhythm that the band came up with between 0:40 and 0:47 great. It’s rather simple but heavy. I also like how Vanson switches between cleans and screams. It adds more variety. 1:42-1:56 has some nice lead guitar playing. I’m looking forward to hearing more in the future.

Under The Knife is another solid track. 0:32-0:47 has some sick guitar work. It starts out slow but ends with some nice complicated playing. I was not expecting the piano to be present from 2:55-3:45.

Does It Hurt? starts with a spoken piece. 0:32-0:37 has a short lead guitar section. 1:12-1:24 contains another sick clean guitar piece. I like how they change up the sound of the EP. I found it refreshing how they incorporated a spoken part and then went into a verse (2:14-2:53).

The last song, Somewhere, begins with a nice piano piece. I was not expecting this song to contain a long spoken part. It was a nice closure to the EP.

Overall, this EP is worth checking out. The band does a good job at experimenting with different ways of writing a song. There are a variety of vocal techniques, some lead guitar playing, and nice piano pieces in this EP. I would give this EP a 7.3 out of 10. I look forward to their future releases.
