Osiris (BH)

Who would had believed back in the early 70's when Prog was young and almost an exclusively UK and Europe phenomenon, that some day Iwould be writing a bio for a band from the Middle East.

Well the time has come for OSIRIS from Bahrain, a Symphonic/Neo Prog group formed back in 1979. the original lineup information is verylimited, so we will have to base our bio in the first 1981 official lineup formed by Mohamed Al-Sadeqi (guitar, vocals), Mohamed AbdulRazak-Aryan (keyboards, vocals), Nabil Alsadeqi (drums), Sabah Alsadeqi (lead vocals) Abdul Razzak Arian (organ and other keybo ...read more

Who would had believed back in the early 70's when Prog was young and almost an exclusively UK and Europe phenomenon, that some day Iwould be writing a bio for a band from the Middle East.

Well the time has come for OSIRIS from Bahrain, a Symphonic/Neo Prog group formed back in 1979. the original lineup information is verylimited, so we will have to base our bio in the first 1981 official lineup formed by Mohamed Al-Sadeqi (guitar, vocals), Mohamed AbdulRazak-Aryan (keyboards, vocals), Nabil Alsadeqi (drums), Sabah Alsadeqi (lead vocals) Abdul Razzak Arian (organ and other keyboards),Nader Sharif (piano and other keyboards) and Ali Knonji in the bas.

The fact is that this band with strong CAMEL and GENESIS ties has been considered Neo Prog due to the fact that their approach is a bitsimpler than the influential bands, but due to the fact OSIRIS was founded in 1979 when Neo wasn't yet born but at the same time despitethe abundance of keyboardists, usually Mohamed Al Sadeqi takes the lead with the guitar, so to be honest I couldn't swear to what genrethey really belong, but this doesn't matter too much because they are a very solid band.

During their first era the band released three albums, "Osiris", 1982 , "Myth & Legend" in 1984 and "Reflections" in 1990.

In 1991 OSIRIS releases their first and only live album "Beyond Control Live" and surprisingly in 2007 they release a conceptual albumcalled "Visions from the Past" which is more oriented towards a blend of Bahraini music and Rock.

Interesting band who's albums have been re-released by Musea for the luck of those of us who love to find rare music. « hide
