"Strong Song"

Suffocate Review:

Nice intro. I like the bass in the mellower parts of the song (I could hear it). The hook is interesting. I like the way the second part of the verses starts with the guitar lick. The song was performed well. This song doesn't steal from anybody much but is comparable to Dream Theater some what.

Feeling a bit camera shy


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.


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".
