I Shalt Become is a black metal musical project of Mainman S. Holliman formed in the United States in 1995. Before the project disbanded in 1999, S. Holliman recorded two official demos: Wanderings in 1998 and In the Falling Snow in 1999. In the same year, the In the Falling Snow demo was released as a bootleg under the name Birkenau. In 2008 In the Falling Snow has been remastered and reissued as an I Shalt Become record, and the project has become active again.
The band belongs to the atmospheric-depressive subgenre of black metal. The lyrical themes deal with abstract concepts and subjects such as desolation and emptiness. With its unique sound, I Shalt Become became an admitted member of today's underground black metal scene.
