Born Of Osiris have premiered a new video for their new song “Cycles Of Tragedy.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Simulation,“ which will be released tomorrow (January 11).
Lee McKinney commented:
“This song was one of the first that Nick Rossi threw into the mix when we started to realize he was going to be with us going forward. I think it’s a perfect blend of all of the emotions we have been bringing to the table with Born Of Osiris throughout the years. It plays between really aggressive rhythmic patterns and what is, in my opinion, potentially the strongest chorus on the album, vocally. I’m also very proud of my guitar solo at the end. I believe I was able to find the right mix between melody and technicality.”
“The video was also a blast to shoot. We got to go to YouTube HQ in California and had a really fun comfortable time shooting. We had been talking about bringing the portal and the ‘being’ that is on the cover of the album into a music video, and this was the one. I think director Steven Contreras (Asking Alexandria) did a great job. Maybe you’ll see more of this kind of art on stage with us on ‘The Simulation’ U.S. tour next month. Hope you all enjoy it!”
Born Of Osiris have premiered a new song titled “Analogs In A Cell.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Simulation,“ which will be released on January 11.
Lee McKinney said the following:
“This specific song is such a fun little journey to look back on for me. I started writing it back in 2016 or 2017. It was one of the first songs I wrote for the new album after moving to Dallas [and] the song has seen a couple different forms over the past couple years. Regardless, I was sleeping in the studio we rented to track this album.
The guys would come in the morning and leave in the late afternoon, but I’d still be there the rest of the time. I used late nights as the time to track all of the instruments for it after we had drums. ‘Analogs In A Cell‘ became my fun little late night project. The best part about forgetting the guitar parts from the demo was rewriting them and making them better.
The demo guitars were very similar, but I tweaked all of the leads and made them more interesting. The entire ending was chugging. I was getting bored with it and I knew I could do better. I started replacing the chugs with notes, then bringing them up an octave, and eventually I ended up writing entirely new guitars for the end.
Then I matched the bass with the guitar. I absolutely love how that song ends now. The fact that it was all made brand new in the studio gave it a longer shelf life for me. Usually when we’re done tracking, I’m also done hearing the songs. I don’t want to listen to them. This song is different. I’m still enjoying hearing all the changes that were made and I can’t wait to see what everyone else thinks.
I think a cool element of this record is how different each song is. They are all very much Born Of Osiris, but they all have different vibes and bring different things to the table. ‘Analogs In A Cell‘ has a very live feel. I can’t wait to perform it. All the guitar parts are really shreddy but also fun to play. The guys wrote some amazing lyrics and vocals to the song. Beginning to end, this is one of my favorites on ‘The Simulation‘.”
