Melodic Technical & Epic Power Metal Rivera/Bomma, This international recording group had their first release on the highly respected Greek progressive metal label Secret Port Records. Filled with the majestic melodies and pulsating rhythms made famous by seventies arena heroes such as Rainbow, Deep Purple, Blue Oyster Cult and others. Formed in late 2000, the nucleus of Rivera / Bomma has always been the two band namesakes, vocalist John Bomma (Ex- singer of U.S. Metal Blade Records Heavy Metal band HADES) & guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Rod Rivera.

John Bomma's voice has a Ronnie James Dio power & range melodic sound & Rod Rivera is a guitar virtuoso with a magical feel & touch alike Ritchie Blackmore/Michael Schenker. RIVERA BOMMA is Melodic hard rock/metal with Latin Flamenco guitar grooves and melodies, You could say they sound a bit like Deep Purple, Dio, Rainbow, Helloween meets Strunz/Farah & Santana. Goosebumps anyone?!

These duo brought down the house when they played at last year's ACM (American Christian Music) awards. In July 2005 they finally decided that Belgium’s Mausoleum Records would be their home for the next seven years.

Lyrics

I am God

Written By: Rivera Bomma

I AM GOD

IN THE SIX DAY GOD CREATED EVERYTHING THAT BREATHS HERE ON EARTH.
ON THE SEVENTH DAY GOD TOOK HIS REST TO BEHOLD WHAT HE HAS LOVED.

GOD MADE MAN FROM DIRT HE PLANNED A WOMAN FROM HIS BONE.
IN THE GARDEN THEY LIVED PEACEFUL HARMONY TILL SATAN TOOK THEM DOWN.

GOD SAID TO ABRAM I'LL MAKE YOU A NATION AND BLESS YOU ALL YOUR LIFE.
BECAUSE OF YOUR FAITH I SWEAR AND DECLARE YOUR DECENDANTS SHALL BE AS
THE STARS.

HE CALLED ON MOSES AND THE VOICE OF AARON TO BRING PHARAOH TO HIS
KNEES.
THE RED SEA HE PARTED AND THIS IS HOW IT STARTED, THAT GOD GAVE HIS TEN
COMMANDS.

I AM GOD. HALLELUYAH!!!
KING OF KINGS, LORD OF LORDS, SHINNING STAR, THE REDEEMER.

I AM GOD.........

FORTY DAYS JESUS WAS TEMPTED BUT THE DEVIL LOST HIS FIGHT.
AT THE AGE OF THIRTY HE STARTED HIS MINISTRY TO PROCLAIM THE GOOD NEWS.

HE HEALED THE SICK AND FED THE POOR, AND SET THE CAPTIVE FREE.
THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS FLOCKED TO HEAR HIM BUT THE PRIEST BROUGHT
HIM DOWN.

I AM GOD. HALLELUYAH!!!!
THE ALPHA, THE OMEGA, THE BEGINNING AND THE END.

I AM GOD.....

THE PRIEST BROUGHT HIM BEFORE "PILOT" TO PUT HIM TO DEATH, FOR
PROCLAIMING TO BE THE MESSIAH, EQUAL TO GOD.
HE STOOD THERE IN SILENCE AS "PILOT" QUESTIONED HIM THE ONLY THING HE
ANSWERED WAS TO SAY "I AM"

THEY WHIPPED AND BEAT HIM, BLOOD DRIPPED FROM HIS HEAD.
THEY MOCKED, SPIT AND PUNCHED HIM AS HE WALKED THE NARROW ROAD.
THEY NAILED, NAILED, NAILED HIS FEET AND HIS HANDS TO THE CROSS OF
GOLGOTHA HIS MOTHER WEPT AS HIS BLED.

FORGIVE THEM FATHER, OH THEY NO NOT WHAT THEY DO.
INTO THY HANDS I COMMAND MY SPIRIT, SALVATION FOR ME AND YOU.

I AM GOD. HALLELUYAH!!!!
THE RABBI, THE WORD, THE MESSIAH, THE CHRIST.

I AM GOD.
