Born of Osiris is an American deathcore band, formed in 2003 in Chicago. The group has undergone a number of namechanges before finally settling with Born of Osiris in 2007, basing the name off the Egyptian deity Osiris, and the tale of hisson Horus. The band’s musical style is mostly based around metal genres including deathcore and technical death metal,although TheDiscovery shows elements of progressive metal. The band frequently take use of keyboards, synthesizersand programmed electronics. A vast majority of the band’s songs are written in drop C tuning on six-strings guitars and dropG on seven-strings.

InDecember 2009, they asked Jason Richardson of AllShall Perish to join Born of Osiris. This began a two-year period of member stability which resulted in the writing and releaseof TheDiscovery.

On December 21, 2011, Born of Osiris fired guitarist JasonRichardson without prior notice. The officialpressreleasecamethreeweeks later. Richardson immediately joinedSalt Lake City deathcore act Chelsea Grin following hisdeparturefromtheband. Inresponse to the official statement released by theband, he wrote a scathing status update onhispersonalFacebookpage,stating that the other band members frequently abusedalcohol and drugs. This post causedamixedreaction: Jasonreceivedbacklash from some fans but many sympathized withhis situation. Jason also stated inthispostthat he was involved inthewriting process for the next Chelsea Grin album.

A video was posted showing guitarist Lee Mckinney working on anew riff, which is believed to be part of asongwhichwillfeature onthe next Born of Osiris release. He also had an eight string guitarbuilt for him by the UKbasedcompanyInvictusGuitars,suggesting another direction that the next release will take.
