OSI formed almost ten years ago, and got four amazing prog/ambient albums out. It's sad that they don't have a topic on here yet considering they're a prog supergroup! So let's discuss some OSI everyone.
Since I did such a lame job describing the band, here's Matheos and Moore describing it instead. The interviewer (Brian Slagel of Metal Blade) asked them some pretty cool questions. I loved it when they moved on to the question of how they first met and Matheos shot a "you're gonna have to do some answering too dude"-look at Moore. It's hilarious.
"...you're obviously having some sort of fun doing this together, right?
-Fun is... a strong word!"
"There comes a time when you look into the mirror and you realize that what you see is all that you will ever be. And then you accept it. Or you kill yourself. Or you stop looking in mirrors."
Quite strange that there wasn't a thread for them considering there are quite a few MSers who dig them.
I didn't like the new one all that much, but I love free and blood, their s/t is quite cool as well.
Its quite sad that they are so unknown, but they got a lot more attention after blood I guess.
Definitely an awesome band, I would love to see them live, if they ever take the project live. I doubt that would happen though :/
I don't think I've heard any other band doing anything as good, maybe Chroma Key is sorta similar, but OSI beats Chroma Key for me any day.
If you never wake up from a dream does it become reality?
You do realize that it's instrumentals of the first tracks of the album glued together?

No foes in my house on Mars

I will die in my house on Mars
