Progressive Metal Band ONI Reveals New Track “Barn Burner” + Album Pre-Orders Now Available!

Techincal progressive metal band ONI recently announced the release of their debut scorcher Ironshore, set to hit stores on Black Friday, November 25, 2016 via Blacklight Media/Metal Blade Records. After turning heads with their first single “Eternal Recurrence“, the band is following up with their equally-superhuman single, “Barn Burner”, which you can hear now via www.metalblade.com/oni. “Barn Burner” is also presented in lyric video form, directed by Wovenwar/Ex-As I Lay Dying guitarist Nick Hipa.

Today also marks the launch of Ironshore pre-orders via www.metalblade.com/oni.

Playthrough videos for “Barn Burner”, showcasing the unique talents of heavy metal Xylosynth player Johnny D and guitarists Martin Andres and Brandon White, will be revealed soon.

Bassist Chase Bryant discusses the inspiration behind “Barn Burner”: “Our frontman, Jake Oni, and I originally discussed including a “get in the pit and die” track on the album, and “Barn Burner” is that track. Musically, we went for something fast, heavy, and based around dream-like, mysterious tones. The track is inspired by a dream I had about parallel universes – I could see them all lined up like ripples in the water. A girl walked between the ripples and changed her surroundings at will. After having that vivid dream and working on conceptualizing it with Jake, the lyrics for “Barn Burner” just poured themselves onto the page.”

ONI‘s upcoming release, Ironshore, takes listeners on an absorbing ride that provides ample opportunity for head-banging, singing along and deep introspection. Formed in 2014, the initial vision for ONI was, “to be the band I never got to see”, explains Jake Oni.

was produced by Josh Wilbur, primarily recognized for his work with top metal artists Lamb Of God and Gojira. Through this connection, ONI was able to reach out to Lamb Of God vocalist Randy Blythe, who contributed his inimitable style to “The Only Cure” – one of Ironshore‘s heaviest moments.


Ironshore tracklisting:

  1. Barn Burner
  2. Eternal Recurrence
  3. The Only Cure (featuring Randy Blythe of Lamb of God)
  4. The Science
  5. Spawn and Feed
  6. Chasing Ecstasy
  7. Kanvas
  8. Thrive
  9. Coast to Coast

With their influences rooted in progressive metal, ONI‘s sound can be compared to the genre’s heavy hitters – The Human Abstract, Protest The Hero and Between The Buried And Me – yet they remain truly unique. With Jake Oni handling vocal duties, Martin Andres and Brandon White on guitar, Chase Bryant on bass and Joe Greulich on drums, they are also perhaps the first metal band to feature a Xylosynth player, Johnny D, which adds an intriguing dynamic to the nine tracks found on Ironshore.


ONI is currently on the road with Max & Iggor Cavalera’s Return To Roots tour through October 21. Following that tour, ONI will join the I Worship Chaos Tour line-up, beginning November 23 and featuring headliners Children of Bodom and fellow special guests Abbath and Exmortus (the latter of which they will perform five off dates with prior).
