Born Of Osiris - A Higher Place

Born of Osiris is a relatively old band but some what new to the popular music scene. The band has been labelled as progressive death metal, technical death metal, and of course deathcore. Though deathcore is a some what inaccurate description of the band as their songs tend not to have parts resembling a breakdown or anything too associated with deathcore.

 The band does have a quite unique style of writing and is quite technical, also using less usual scales than other bands. Plus the interesting use of the guitar which seems some what random but spontaneous. As will be quite clear what I am referencing to if you listen to anything of theirs. The vocals are interesting as the sound more gargle like than the usual vocals I tend to be use to. There are no clean vocals in this album, but even from the gargle like vocals, the lyrics are understandable. Drums in this album are intense though with a real nice beat and keeping the tracks very heavy which I quite like.

The songs are quite distinguishable between each other due to the unique guitar work done in each song so they don't sound all the same which I tend to feel with some death metal bands. The band also includes key which is feels to be used only a small amount in songs, but gives the desired feel to the songs with the additional symphonic feel.
