Biography

The Birmingham-based quintet I Am Terrified is a study in contrasts, always zigging when you thought you saw a zag coming. After six years of constant performing and forceful sonic development, the blazing metal core band serves up this self-titled 6-track EP from Mono vs Stereo as compelling documentation of their unique, spirit-driven journey.

Alabama continues its remarkable trend of turning out hard-driving players with serious southern grit. Founding IAT members Jeremy Folse (guitarist), Patrick Schefano (vocalist), and Joel Bailey (drums) knew each other from local schools and churches. Main songwriter Schefano, in fact, comes from a small, musically austere Southern Baptist Church that featured one woman on a tiny upright and a small choir. But all three members mined their church hymnals for spiritual perspective and sonic structure, the fruit of those excavations showing up years later in the innovative, experimental music of I Am Terrified. “Hymnals are a huge inspiration to our band,” shares guitarist Folse, “which you’ll hear in our lyrics, as that was what most of us grew up on.” Actually, I Am Terrified has traveled a great sonic distance from those early southern Baptist roots, but you will enjoy the stirring fire-and-brimstone component in their pounding hardcore sound. The band, performing for several years as Fixed Til Tuesday, was influenced early on by the tastes of emo-loving girlfriends who followed Finch and other screamers.

    I booked this band 3 times and they had an incredible stage presence. They must have broken up before the 3rd time they were supposed to come because I never heard anything after they said they were coming and then they didn't show up.

    Sorry to let you guys know, but I Am Terrified recently broke up for unexplained reasons, they were supposed to be releasing an album, which it said on their myspace back in december, but they broke up, yeah i know sad day, they just broke up without the slightest notice to us fans :( i have only a few things i wish they would have done different before breaking up: They should have done a farewell tour before breaking up, and second they should have informed us fans that they were breaking up. The only regret i have is that i never got the chance to see them live, that's why i wish they would have considered doing a farewell tour before officially breaking up. They are truly a one-of-a-kind christian metal band and i'll miss them being in the music industry for sure because they are awesome. Let me know what you guys think about this, you can email me at :willnealy@gmail.com
