OSI Posts New Video Clip

OSI has completed work on a video for the song entitled "For Nothing," which comes from OSI's fourth album "Fire Make Thunder." The video was directed by Jimmy Ahlander and is being premiered online through Ultimate-Guitar.com. Check out the video here.

In its first week of release, "Fire Make Thunder" has charted on the Billboard New Artist Chart at #18. OSI also charted on the Top Hard Music Albums Chart at #46. International chart numbers include #43 on the Hard Music chart in Canada and #139 on the charts in Benelux.

Formed in 2002 by Jim Matheos (Fates Warning, Arch/Matheos) and Kevin Moore (Chroma Key, former Dream Theater keyboardist), OSI is a long distance partnership, both musicians typically writing and recording alone and sending song ideas back and forth for further elaboration. Written and recorded throughout most of 2011, this latest release once again reflects the eclectic influences of both Matheos and Moore.

The album's track listing is as follows:

1) Cold Call
2) Guards
