Born Of Osiris are quite the unique band, mixing deathcore and metalcore with trance-like keyboards and adding the occasional black metal influenced riffs and blast beats. On their fifth full-length album (and first in four years), Born Of Osiris maintain their deathcore integrity while adding more melody in between the harsh grooves on 'The Simulation' - a short but effective 26 minute long album. Standout tracks include "Analogs In A Cell", "Disconnectome" and "One Without The Other". The guitar tone and drum tracks are monstrous in the mix without overpowering the keyboards and vocals. Although the bass can be heard throughout, it seems to be mixed a little lower than the other instruments. That being said, this is a pretty good addition to their discography. If it weren’t for them releasing a second album this year, I would be really disappointed that it took them four years to release such a short album since 2015's 'Soul Sphere'.
