Born of Osiris’s Lee McKinney Drops New Solo Track, “Stormrage”
Born of Osiris guitarist Lee McKinney is back with a new solo single, “Stormrage,” the first to be released from his forthcoming solo album In the Light of Knowledge.
I continue to be impressed by McKinney’s solo work. “Stormrage” comes off kinda like a musical pangram of what you might expect solo instrumental metal to sound like in 2021/2022. There’s a little bit of Animals as Leaders (slap guitar), a dose of Scale the Summit (melodic major key leads), a super sexy saxophone part followed by a jazz freakout saxophone part (Rivers of Nihil) and of course some of Lee’s own patented special sauce to stitch it together and make it his own. It’s a dope tune overall, and makes me want to hear what else the album has in store.
McKinney’s last solo release, Infinite Mind, came out in March of 2019, while BoO’s latest, Angel or Alien, arrived in July of this year.
In The Light Of Knowledge comes out on January 14, 2022 via Sumerian; pre-order here.
