Limited edition double marble white/lunar moon colored LP pressing, includes digital download. Many religions, cultures, and stories attribute power to the number three. In Egyptian mythology, it symbolizes plurality, and "triads" of deities comprise a complete system. It's no surprise that the god Osiris was born to one such triad alongside siblings Horus and Isis. It's also not a coincidence that Chicago heavy metal quintet Born of Osiris found a similar significance within that number on their fifth full-length album, Soul Sphere. In fact, over the course of 12 tracks, the record examines three tiers originally uncovered in a dream that Joe Buras (vocals, synthesizers, keyboards) shared. "The whole story of the record involves three levels," explains Joe. "The first one is The Binding. You're hanging, and you're stagnant. The second is The Fight. You were hanging, but now you're pulling away from this linchpin, whether it's physical, emotional, or spiritual. The final is The Release. You break away and feel free, connected, and loved."
