FIRE MAKE THUNDER
We're definitely in a different musical age. Certainly, the digital age has produced a new way to record music, but I doubt a nationally signed act has ever done a full, completely fleshed out project quite the way OSI did. For those that don't know, OSI is a project featuring Jim Matheos of Fates Warning fame, and Kevin Moore who's best known for his time in Dream Theater. What's so different about this? Well, the guys have created a completely intricate, deep and fully fleshed out sound without ever spending a moment in the studio. That's right - FIRE MAKE THUNDER is 100% the product of the electronic age. I think if I was in this band, I would have called this EMAIL, since they undoubtedly spent hours emailing back and forth, skyping, and FTPing tracks back and forth.
