Born Of Osiris
Born of Osiris is an American progressive metalcore band formed in 2003 in Palatine, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. The band currently consists of lead vocalist Ronnie Canizaro, lead guitarist Lee McKinney, rhythm guitarist/bassist Nick Rossi, drummer Cameron Losch, and keyboardist/vocalist Joe Buras. Born of Osiris has played at various festivals including the Summer Slaughter Tour] (2008, 2009, 2015 and 2018) and the Music as a Weapon Tour 4. The group underwent several name changes, including Diminished (2003–2004), Your Heart Engraved (2004–2006), and Rosecrance (2006–2007), before finally settling on Born of Osiris in 2007, basing the name on the Egyptian deity Osiris and the tale of his son Horus.
Born of Osiris are back with the follow up to the acclaimed « The Simulation », a frankly face-melting seventh album called « Angel or Alien ». All of the ingredients that made previous efforts so intensely enjoyable are present and correct : inhuman vocals, technically dazzling fretwork, intricate musicianship courtesy of the rhythm section, and epic tunes. But there’s an organic evolution taking place -- a progressive progression that has seen the Palatine group take things up a level.
