Free Music Friday: I, The Mountain – Saga

I can never tell how I’m going to feel when I dive into a metalcore record. Variation is limited and while I enjoy the genre, I’m never sure if a record is going to connect. The Derbyshire band, I, The Mountain, has delivered a hard hitting, technical, and interesting record. They site Architects, In Hearts Wake, Bury Tomorrow, and While She Sleeps among their influences. What really caught my attention was the lyrical content. There seems to be a theme and story running through the tracks that reminds of stories of the Scandinavian nations converting people to Christianity by force. It’s got an old viking tale running through it. Which makes sense since the record is called Saga. It’s definitely a record to listen to while reading the lyrics.
