REVIEW; THE CORE OF BRUTALITY - 8/10

"Their music has so many elements that make this album such a gem to listen to. There are some very long intervals of instrumentals that I really enjoyed because of the great guitar work. The guitars alone should make you alone want this record. The listener goes from this soft folk feeling string sections to intense guitar solos and the buildup is incredible!

I was often shocked when the vocals came in as they catch you off guard but they really help the story be told. All of the elements are needed to fully enjoy this experience. It would be hard to do a song by song review of this because there is so much material and I cant go and say this riff and that riff; there are just so many of those moments that made me keep going back for more.

They come off as a combination of Hammerfall, Ensiferum, and pieces of metallica I feel like I hear in the vocals. Now lets think about the bands I just named what do they have in common. Well they are all huge for one reason or another guitar , drums , delivery! I even think the guitars could be compared to Dragonforce without the same repetitive tones that Dragonforce delivers but along the same lines of shredness (yes I know I made that up but it sounds cool).

The quality of the music is great just the production as a whole proves that noone can go wrong with this album. I am actually quite anxious to see what direction they go in next because I feel like they got me hooked on this style and I actually stopped listening to death metal and core for about 2 days and couldn’t get enough of Osyron!"

REVIEW; MAINSTREAM MUSIC. NOT

"Osyron are a painfully underrated Metal band from Canada , I've always said ... Canada has the craziest metal bands and these guys are no exception , although the music they play is not crazy by itself , it's the wide range of ideas that makes this album so unique , I mean it's an album that has Heavy , Power , Thrash , Prog , even Symphonic Metal and more , these guys usually sound bone-breaking , SO HEAVY , but they can be melodic as well. many bands do that but it's usually about charming melodic parts scattered around the dominating Metal sound , here it's different ... because the Metal keeps changing into something else too.

So how do they combine all these styles and make it into a consistent , coherent album ? I have no idea , but it makes sense because "Harbinger" has a beautifully orchestrated story that keeps progressing and revealing its secrets as the songs go on and I think the music reflects the concept perfectly. and it's only the first album in a planned , very promising , trilogy.

Osyron's music is guitar-oriented , I mean they are doing something new here but it wouldn't work if not for the mind-blowing guitar work , it's one of those " DAMN ! DEM RIFFS" albums. of course the drums sound mighty too and not monotonous at all.

Well , Osyron have released this stunning debut album that probably has something for every metal fan out there , gods ... it will be hard to top this , but judging by the quality of "Harbinger" here , they will never disappoint , ever."
