"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."

Another review of the album has just been uploaded! The Grim Tower gave it a 9/10 and here is a piece of it:

"Osyron - Harbinger (2013 Spotlight Review) - I'll be honest. I wasn't so sure what to think about Osyron when I first heard them. Despite the fact that they're being touted on Rockbox (which now for some reason, appears to be offering torrents of promos complete with info and press pics) which is as good a promotion factor as any these days; I found them on the site a few weeks back because their genre description sounded interesting. These guys play a very convincing version of progressive power/thrash metal, rife with guitar and keyboard theatrics. Musically, they're a downright powerhouse.

"Visions 6:34" didn't sell me at first, but "Dormant Insurrection 5:29" did, with it's strong chorus and notable attention to detail. I don't really know who these guys are, but I can tell you that they're going to matter in the metal scene sooner, rather than later. This is a self-released effort? You're kidding me. Labels will be chomping at the bit for a band with this much potential.

"Lifting Of The Veil 5:40" kind of reminds me a bit of early Falconer. The vocal approach is subtle, while the musical approach is much more ferocious. These guys also really love the concept of complex midsection instrumentals. I believe that every song on the album features one of these, sans the instrumental which could be taken as one large instrumental midsection.

"Silent Judgement 7:30" is one impressive instrumental. It would have to be, to fill up the nearly eight minutes of time that it spans on the disc. If anything, it shows that these unknowns can play. And not just play, but play exceptionally well. That's why I've spotlighted them. The sheer fact the band doesn't mind you downloading their music for your own free enjoyment is mind-boggling in itself.

In the end, I can honestly say that it was a good ride and I'd recommend that you guys check it out. Again, that's why there's a big picture of the album cover which will link you to the band's website on the sidebar."
