This update, just in from Jim Matheos - "I'm happy to say that all the music for FW11 is now written (finally!). Still some lyrics to do, but we're close. Looking forward to sharing this with you in 2013. "

Jeff Wagner (author of Mean Deviation: Four Decades of Progressive Heavy Metal) included Fire Make Thunder in his list of the 10 best  progressive albums of 2012.

"...there is no other sound quite like OSI. Between Kevin Moore's expert keys/samples/effects wizardry and Jim Matheos's expanding mastery of stealthy guitar layering, you've got two prog metal veterans forming a braintrust that's much more than a side project by now (this is the band's fourth album). Moore delivers some interesting lyrics with his signature understated vocals, and final track "Invisible Men" is possibly the definitive OSI track, gathering everything that's great about this band into one 10 minute package."

"Very saddened to hear the great Ronnie Montrose passed away Saturday. Ronnie was one of my favorite guitarists and a big influence. For me, his Open Fire record is one of the best instrumental records of all time. I'll be listening to it a lot today." ~Jim Matheos
