Biography

Are there turning points in life worth remembering? Absolutely. They are the moments in our life that not only define it, they make life worth living. This is the philosophy behind the upcoming full length CD Release from the Pittsburgh based band OSARIS.

Their music has been described as compelling, powerful, and with emotion. Each song showcases the bands musical abilities with meaningful lyrics, powerful arrangements, and explosive choruses.

Osaris is not your typical modern rock band. They are a group of musicians who understand and believe that their music and messages are shared universal experiences with their fans.

History

Throughout 2004 & 2005, the boys of Osaris were graced with the opportunity to experience a level of success the band could only once dream about. In 2004, with only a handful of songs, the band began their journey with hopes of building a fan base and being recognized in the city of Pittsburgh. That journey ended with Osaris playing to 20,000 music fans at one of the largest music festivals in the country, "Locabazooka".

Along the way, the band managed to build a legion of fans, move almost 3000 units of their self titled EP, open for national acts such as Nickelback, 3 Doors Down, Puddle of Mudd, Breaking Benjamin, Kevin Dubrow, Saliva, Shinedown, Damage Plan, and the legendary group Tesla.

Osaris gained recognition at home and abroad. Word even spread to music industry professionals who eventually took interest in the band. The whole experience seemed surreal, to say the least.

But along with the good, comes the bad. In the end of 2004, while still in full stride, the band lost their original drummer. The boys felt their feet swept out from underneath them. Trying to keep a positive outlook, the decision was made to move forward.

During the down time, Brian began to write new material while the band started auditions. Finally in mid 2005, Mike McGivern, long time friend of bassist Steve Zummo filled the drummer vacancy. Mike made a brief but memorable appearance with Osaris earlier in 2004. He sat in to play a set during the bands opening slot for Breaking Benjamin.

"It was on!!!! Time to get back out there and show everyone what we got." The band played a handful of shows around the city. In July of 05, Osaris was asked to perform on the morning show at 102.5 WDVE Pittsburgh. Performing "Suffocate", the band played at the top of their game. Impressed with their performance, DJ Randy Bauman called Suffocate a "rock opus."

"What a rush... Its hard to comprehend almost a half of a million listeners hearing your music for the first time." Then all of a sudden "Smack" the old back hand bitch slap hits the band once again. The reality was the band didn't have a CD. "All these new songs and no way for are fans or anyone who likes what they just heard to get them". So in August, the band decided to enter Soundscape Studios to begin recording their first full length CD.

Now on the brink of the band's first independent release, Osaris is eager to rekindle what once was. "It's all about the fans. Letting them know we're back. Without them, you might as well stay home".

Written By: Osaris: Lyrics by Demagall

(VERSE 1)
AS I WALK ALONG THESE STREETS
I FEEL THE RAIN THATS POURING DOWN
DISTANT SOULS BENEATH MY FEET
I FEEL THEIR PAIN
I HIT THE GROUND

TO JUSTIFY WHAT I CAN SEE
IN THIS PLACE I ONCE CALLED HOME
AS THE SHOTS SCREAM ABOVE MY HEAD
I OPEN THE DOOR, THERE'S NO ONE HOME

(CHORUS)
THROUGH THESE EYES I SEE THE PAST
FALLEN FROM YOU AGAIN
AND THIS TIME I'LL MAKE IT LAST
FALLEN FROM YOU AGAIN

(VERSE 2)
THERE'S A WOMAN WHO WAITS ON THE STAIRS
FEARING THIS TIME HE WONT COME HOME
HIDING THE PAIN THAT SCARS SO DEEP
OUT ON THE STREETS TO MAKE HIS OWN

TO JUSTIFY WHAT I CAN SEE
IN THIS PLACE THEY CALL THEIR HOME
AS THERE SCREAMS FILL INSIDE MY HEAD
I FEEL THEIR PAIN, I'M ALL ALONE.

(CHORUS)

Suffocate

Written By: OSARIS Lyrics by: Demagall

(VERSE 1)
I SUFFOCATED THE DAY YOU LEFT
I STRUGGLE TO BREAK FREE
BRUISED AND JADED
THE FEELINGS KEPT
HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN TO ME

IS THERE MUCH MORE I CAN TAKE
HAVE I FALLEN TO FAR FROM GRACE
PIECE BY PIECE YOU TEAR MY SOUL APART
I NEED YOU TO KNOW THIS

(CHOURS)
LOST IN THIS MOMENT
CANT FACE THE TRUTH
KNOW ONE CAN SAVE ME, NOT EVEN YOU
WE CHOOSE TO LVE OUR LIVES THIS WAY
SO WE BEGIN TO SUFFOCATE

(VERSE 2)
THE DREAMS OF OUR FUTURE
SWEPT AWAY
FROM OUR DECISIONS WE'VE MADE TODAY
OUR INNOSENCE FADED BUT NEVER LOST
IF WE'RE TRUE TO EACH OTHER AND TO OURSELVES

IS THERE MUCH MORE I CAN TAKE
HAVE I FALLEN TO FAR FROM GRACE
PIECE BY PIECE YOU TEAR MY WORLD APART
I NEED YOU TO KNOW THIS

(CHORUS)

(OUTRO)
HOW DO WE LIVE
HOW DO WE STAY
WHY DO WE CHOOSE TO LIVE THIS WAY
LOST IN THIS MOMENT
CANT FACE THE TRUTH
NO ONE CAN SAVE ME
NO ONE CAN SAVE ME NO EVEN YOU

"Home" Dedicated to the Men and Women in our Armed Forces

Written By: Osaris, Lyrics by Demagall

Verse 1
Torn and Broken is what I've become
Left with memories that I cant over come
A silohuette of a place once passed, that I'll keep holding on, never gone.

Verse 2

Its been awhile since I've seen you my friend
Times are changing where do I begin
All the things I new I should have said, that I'll keep holding on, your never gone.

Chorus

The sun will rise
A new day will dawn and I'll be waiting for you here.

Just believe in me
Cause I'll be coming Home

Bridge

So dont you ever change my friend
Live your life, dont have regrets
Follow your heart, never give in
I'll be by your side agian and again
So dont you ever change my friend
Live your life, dont have regrets
Cause I'll be on my way

Solo

Outro Chorus
