San Jose's It Is I was the post-Asbestos Death band of Tom Choi, the one Asbestos Death member who didn't go on to form Sleep. It Is I released just one album, 1995's Evolve. The record is a caustic monolith of bitter doomy sludge metal that never really got much attention. Their drummer was called "The Terrorizer" or something of that nature and played with huge dowels rather than regular drum sticks. Maybe a bit gimmicky, but it does sort of speak volumes about the band's intent to pulverize and do little more. Absolutely crushing.
