Born Of Osiris – Soulsphere

Illinois’ finest deathcore band, Born Of Osiris, has treated us once more with a mathematical masterpiece! Their fourth studio album “Soulsphere” is drowned in airtight guitar riffs with a mix of heart-breaking and beastlike vocals. As a listener you will get sucked into an unworldly universe with no chance of escape before the end of these 12 highly technical tracks. Of course because of the tight mix everything could sound too generic, especially the drums which are triggered to the maximum. The excessive use of sound samples could be positive or negative, depending on the listener but I think if Born Of Osiris can pull off the tight performance on this album in a live setting, no one would dare to whine about the samples. Highlights on this album are the very catchy “Throw Me In The Jungle”, “Illuminate” and “The Louder The Sound, The More We All Believe”. The outsider on the album could be closing track “The Composer”. This song begins with the typical Born Of Osiris wall of sound but ends with an interesting techno/classical composition. A real ‘ear catcher’!
