The name OSI refers to the "Office of Strategic Influences", an organization created by US government to do some kind of US propaganda after 9/11 (for your information, it was quickly stopped for obvious reasons...). But this is also the name of a superband composed by Kevin Moore of Chroma Key and Jim Matheos of Fates Warning. "Blood" is their new album, their 3rd one actually, and if the guys worked with Portnoy or Steven Wilson in the past, this is now the time to do something else with Gavin Harrison on the drums (Porcupine Tree) and even Akerfelt as a guest vocalist on the song "Stockholm". Ho yes, I'm already hearing the ones who want to know how the hell sounds this release, well let's go then and if you like Porcupine Tree you shouldn't be disappointed!

I love the vocals of OSI so much. "Be The Hero" is still one of the best tracks I constantly return to since first hearing it in 2009

I love all things Kevin Moore, currently. Well, actually, I always did, just didn't do my research my faves off of this one are definitely "The Escape Artist" and "False Start". "Radiologue" is awesome as well, and "Microburst Alert", and, yeah, every other track. I read somewhere that this is Matheos' fave OSI album and I do agree with him, although Free is close too.
