BORN OF OSIRIS
"Soul Sphere" (Sumerian Records; 2015)
Reviewed by Jeff Rogers
Born Of Osiris are deathcore. I've heard of them but
never really listened to them but, well, now I'm hooked, left-hooked. I know
that deathcore can get a bit monotonous because, let's face it, your face is
what they want to smash and the beats can get blasted too much to the point of
dullness but if you have some great sounds to add in then you might just find
your niche. Born Of Osiris come with the heavy and never let you catch your
breath. Deathcore doesn't allow for breaks ... well, bones maybe.
The vocals can be clean and mean. You get the deathcore growls but you get clean vocals (on a few tracks) that add a melodic layer, you can also hear the metalcore breakdowns, so, in combination, you get two styles of music between metalcore and death metal. Plus guitar is freakin' fast and I dig the sounds that come out. This disc is forty-six minutes of brutality with occasional glimpses of hope (just kidding, you're going to get brain bruises but you won't know until you try and listen to some other kind of music). "Soul Sphere" is Born Of Osiris's fourth disc. The guitar sound effects will keep you listening long after your core has been deathed by metal.
This band of beasts consists of: Ronnie Canizaro – vocals; Lee McKinney – guitars; David Da Rocha – bass; Cameron Losch – drums; Joe Buras – keyboards, synthesizers, vocals.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
