Many religions, cultures, and stories attribute power to the number three. In Egyptian mythology, it symbolizes plurality, and triads of deities comprise a complete system. Its no surprise that the god Osiris was born to one such triad alongside siblings Horus and Isis. Its also not a coincidence that Chicago heavy metal quintet Born Of Osiris found a similar significance within that number on their fifth full-length album, Soul Sphere [Sumerian Records]. In fact, over the course of 12 tracks, the record examines three tiers originally uncovered in a dream that Joe Buras [clean vocals, synthesizers, keyboards] shared.The whole story of the record involves three levels, explains Joe. The first one is The Binding. Youre hanging, and youre stagnant. The second is The Fight. You were hanging, but now youre pulling away from this linchpin, whether its physical, emotional, or spiritual. The final is The Release. You break away and feel free, connected, and loved.In order to properly explore the tiers, the groupJoe, Ronnie Canizaro [vocals], Cameron Losch [drums], David Da Rocha [bass], and Lee McKinney [guitar]strengthened their bond exponentially. Since 2007, these five individuals have played countless shows alongside everybody from Judas Priest and Rob Zombie to Bring Me The Horizon and Killswitch Engage in addition to festivals such as Warped Tour, Mayhem Festival, and Music As A Weapon. After each album since their debut landed in the Top 100, including fan favorites A Higher Place [2009] and The Discovery [2011], 2013s Tomorrow We Die live earned the band their highest Billboard Top 200 debut, reaching #27 and selling over 13,000 copies first-week. After another marathon of touring, the guys headed to Michigan to write what would become Soul Sphere. They then hit the studio with Nick Sampson recording drums and added keys and effects, Lee handling production for guitars and bass, and Allen Hassler for vocals. They managed to click like never before, by drawing on nearly a decade of Born of Osiris. Over the years, you get better at creating, writing, and recording in the studio, says Ronnie. You improve each time you make an album. Once we had the direction, it started gelling.Born Of Osiris preceded the album with the fiery chant of Throw Me In The Jungle, showcasing their anthemic side. The follow-up Resilience evinced another angle. Its gnashing polyrhythmic guitars collide with orchestral electronics and a forceful and fiery refrain, tapping into the bands hallmarks while fortifying the attack. We wanted to use that title for so long, Joe goes on. Collectively, weve had so much resilience, going through different friendships and changes over the years but still maintaining our connection amongst us.Then theres Illuminate, which tempers a wall of distortion with a big chorus. The third single Goddess of the Dawn snaps from a thick groove punctuated by pinch harmonics before an entrancing clean hook. We talk about feeling lost, finding yourself, and opening up to love, says Joe. Its all three tiers in one song. As far as the title goes, the Native Americans referred to Aurora Borealis as Goddess of the Dawn before they knew what it was. Many cultures and religions would actually worship it.Soul Sphere could only by conjured by a group of musicians so personally distinct. Beyond Born Of Osiris, each member continues to enrich his own sphere. In addition to being a partnered Twitch gamer and streamer, Lee is involved in multiple music projects, spanning electronic dance music and progressive rock. His solo guitar project landed in the Top 10 of the Rock Chart alongside System of a Down and Black Sabbath. David runs his own jewelry line D A V I and remains an avid fisherman. Cameron splits his time between drum lessons and composition. Joe oversees and designs the bands stage production, aesthetic, and lighting, and Ronnie envisions the sweeping sci-fi concepts inside the lyrics
