CD review OSYRON ‘Foundations’ – EP

Hailing from Calgary/Edmonton, Alberta, Osyron added a next record to their musical offer. After having premiered in 2103 with ‘Harbinger’, the guys released with ‘Kingsbane’ their sophomore album in 2017.

Three years later, a new EP will see the light of days. ‘Foundation’ is the title of a release that features 5 songs. For the ones of you that haven’t heard of the band earlier, Osyron’s musical homebase can be described as Symphonic Metal with a very solid portion of progressiveness.

‘Foundation’ starts mighty. The heavy pounding and dark ‘The Cross’ is a good lead-off song that finds with ‘Ignite’ a continuation. The title track, being the last song on this EP, is with eight minutes a highlight that shows the entire bandwidth of Osyron. From gentle and calm to brutal and heavy, all is packaged into this musical excursus.

‘Foundations’ features good music, done with good craftsmanship and equipped with a well-produced sound. Hooks are doing what they are supposed to do, melodies are catcy and there is still enough heaviness to not end up in triviality. By all the good stuff that comes with the album there are the own trademarks though that could be sharpened a bit more. But besides that, all good and the foundation is literally set.
