US progressive metallers OSI have announced the details of their upcoming new album. Entitled Fire Make Thunder, it is slated for release on March 23rd in Europe and March 27th in North America via Metal Blade Records. You can check out an album sampler in the video below.
Written and recorded throughout most of 2011, Fire Make Thunder once again reflects the eclectic influences of both Matheos and Moore. Returning as the band's session drummer is Gavin Harrison of Porcupine Tree, this time co-writing one of the tracks with the band. All other instruments and programming were performed by both Matheos and Moore, while vocals and lyrics were handled exclusively by Moore.

All of the recording for Fire Make Thunder, with the exception of drums, was done by Moore and Matheos at each musician's respective home studio with drums being recorded at Harrison's home in London. Final overdubs as well as some additional writing/arranging were completed in July 2011 in Jamaica, Iowa, where the band mixed alongside engineer Matt Sepanic at Sound Farm Studio and Recording Environment. Mastering was handled by renowned engineer Roger Siebel. The record was produced by both Moore and Matheos.

My feelingss exactly, but in my case a real boner
If they top Blood I will die. I don't think I haven't enjoy any of their releases.
It would be awesome if they toured for the new album atleast and then come to India
