In the pantheon of death metal leaning progressive metal bands of today, few are more influential than Born Of Osiris. Their debut EP The New Reign featured a highly technical and keyboard-laden deathcore sound, and its follow-up A Higher Place showed the band’s still developing sound.
However, it was on 2011’s The Discovery that the young band really came into their own. A record that’s chock full of thick guitar and bass tones, impressive vocals from Ronnie Canizaro, and guitarwork that would prove influential in the coming years, Born Of Osiris produced a real barnburner here.
2019 is coming in with a bang, as new records from Shrezzers and Rosetta are coming fast and furious. You can add a few new albums to this list today, as new records from Born Of Osiris and The Last Ten Seconds Of Life, debuts from The Jon Hill Project and Afterlife, and a very good new record from melodic metal legends Soilwork are all on the list.
Metal veterans Born Of Osiris, who are set to release an upcoming record titled The Simulation in January, have announced yet another North American headlining tour in support of the record. The tour also features Chelsea Grin, Aussie heavyweights Make Them Suffer, and a special guest set to be announced later. Check out the dates below, as well as the band’s newest song, “The Accursed”.
After releasing “Silence The Echo” earlier this year, the wait for new Born Of Osiris music has been highly anticipated by their fanbase. While we already know the new record is mixed and mastered, and ready for human consumption, what we haven’t gotten yet is a new single to kick off the new album cycle.
Just kidding, that day has arrived in the form of new track, “The Accursed”, along with what is the band’s new album artwork. Entitled The Simulation, the band’s new album is due out in early January of 2019.
Unfortunately, this comes with the news that longtime bassist David DaRocha left the band, but he’ll be capably replaced by Nick Rossi, according to Born Of Osiris. It’s possible the departure is temporary, considering the band’s wording. Check out the new song below!
