OSI – Fire Make Thunder is scheduled for release March 27th on Metal Blade Records
Office of Strategic Influence (OSI) is Jim Matheos (Fates Warning) and Kevin Moore (ex Dream Theater, Chroma Key). They are joined here by returning session drummer Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree). Matheos (guitar, bass) and Moore (keyboards, vocals) played/programmed everything but the drums and once again Moore penned all the lyrics.
Fire Make Thunder was recorded separately by each musician in their home studios then all the parts were combined and mixed in Jamaica, Iowa.
If you’re a fan of intelligent prog metal with a dose of politics and paranoia you’re going to love this.
