OSI: Exclusive Interview Posted on GuitarWorld.com “Fire Make Thunder” Available March 27th via Metal Blade Records
Fire Make Thunder marks the fourth undertaking for the collaborative duo known as OSI. 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.
Fire Make Thunder is slated for a March 27th release via Metal Blade Records. An exclusive video interview featuring Chairman and CEO of Metal Blade Brian Slagel interviewing the often elusive duo of Kevin Moore and Jim Matheos has been released exclusively on GuitarWorld.com the online home of Guitar World Magazine. They talk about the recording process of the new album, the origins of OSI and much more. Check it out HERE.
Unearth launch video for “Watch It Burn” on MetalInjection.net! Unearth’s new video for Watch It Burn from Darkness in the Light is now streaming EXCLUSIVELY on metalinjection.net! The video, which was directed by Scott Hansen (A Day To Remember, I Wrestled A Bear Once, Maylene & The Sons of Disaster), is a dark and disturbing video to match the equally bleak lyrics of the song.

Vocalist Trevor Phipps elaborates on the video: “This video captures both the energy we put into every performance as well as imagery of the dark lyrical content of “Watch it Burn”. We want to thank Scott Hansen and his crew for their hard work delivering such a sick video for our fans to see. Check it out!”
