OSI: Premiere New Video Exclusively on Ultimate-Guitar.com
Stands miles apart from anything else out there – metal, prog, electronic or otherwise -Decibel Magazine

OSI have completed work on a video for the song entitled "For Nothing". The song comes from OSI's critically acclaimed fourth album Fire Make Thunder. The video was directed by Jimmy Ahlander, more info on Ahlander and his projects is available at http://jimmyahlander.com and http://www.pixeltownarts.com. Today, Ultimate-Guitar.com is hosting an exclusive premiere of the video. Check out the video HERE.

In its first week of release, Fire Make Thunder has charted on the Billboard New Artist Chart at #18. OSI also charted on the Top Hard Music Albums Chart at #46. International chart numbers include: #43 on the Hard Music chart in Canada and #139 on the charts in Benelux.

Formed in 2002 by Jim Matheos (Fates Warning, Arch/Matheos) and Kevin Moore (Chroma Key, former Dream Theater keyboardist), OSI is a long distance partnership, both musicians typically writing and recording alone and sending song ideas back and forth for further elaboration. Written and recorded throughout most of 2011, this latest release once again reflects the eclectic influences of both Matheos and Moore.

Prog Archives is streaming the track "Big Chief II" HERE.

Decibel Magazine's "Deciblog" is streaming the song "Cold Call" HERE.

An exclusive video interview featuring Chairman and CEO of Metal Blade Brian Slagel talking to the often elusive duo of Kevin Moore and Jim Matheos is available for viewing courtesy of GuitarWorld.com HERE. In the interview OSI and Slagel discuss the recording process of the new album, the origins of OSI and much more.

Returning as the band's session drummer is Gavin Harrison of Porcupine Tree, this time co-writing one of the tracks with the band. All other instruments and programming were performed by both Matheos and Moore, while vocals and lyrics were handled exclusively by Moore.

All of the recording for Fire Make Thunder, with the exception of drums, was done by Moore and Matheos at each musician's respective home studio with drums being recorded at Harrison's home in London. Final overdubs as well as some additional writing/arranging was completed in July 2011 in Jamaica, Iowa, where the band mixed alongside engineer Matt Sepanic at Sound Farm Studio and Recording Environment. Mastering was handled by renowned engineer Roger Siebel. The record was produced by both Moore and Matheos.
