Technical progressive metal band ONI have released a new single, “Barn Burner”, from their upcoming album Ironshore, due out 11/25 via Metal Blade Records. “Barn Burner” is presented in lyric video form, directed by Wovenwar/Ex-As I Lay Dying guitarist Nick Hipa.
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.”
