||OSI (Office Of Strategic Influence), the project featuring Fates Warning guitarist Jim Matheos, ex-Dream Theater keyboardist Kevin Moore and Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy, have posted the following message on their official web site:
"Jim, Kevin and Mike were at Carriage House Studios in Connecticut on November 18-20 tracking drums for the forthcoming OSI album. Jim and Kevin are now tracking guitars and vocals, and mixing will take place in January. More information will be posted on this site (track listing, release dates, etc.) as it becomes available."
Initially Mike Portnoy looks like he wasn't going to be involved - he said "Initially I wasn't going to partake in the album and had passed on the offer, but I guess the moral of the story is, 'Never say never,'".
