OSI the progressive metal band was formed in the aftermath of the 9/11 arracks, the bands first album was released in 2003, and now after recently signing to Metalblade records and interest from a larger audience the album is been re-issued
The band & album is named after the Office of Strategic Influence, an organization set up after the September 11 attacks to spread misinformation and plant false news items in the media, among other functions. The Office was shut after The New York Times published a story on it; many of its operations were transferred to the Information Operations Task Force.
Office of Strategic Influence is the first album by American progressive rock band OSI, originally released on February 18, 2003. The album was recorded in June 2002 and mixed in August 2002 at the Carriage House Studios in Stamford, Connecticut.
Fates Warning guitarist Jim Matheos originally recruited Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy to work on a progressive metal album. When keyboardist and vocalist Kevin Moore (founder of Chroma Key and former Dream Theater member) joined the project, the musical direction of the album changed to become more focused on sound-scapes and composition than musicianship. Sean Malone (of Cynic and Gordian Knot) and Steven Wilson (of Porcupine Tree) also performed on the album.

The Office was shut after The New York Times published a story on it; many of its operations were transferred to the Information Operations Task Force. The album’s lyrics were written by Moore in reaction to the September 11 attacks.

Dutch Death Metal Masters HAIL OF BULLETS have launched the first song of their upcoming new album ‘On Divine Winds’ exclusively on MySpace. Surf to the bands site http://www.myspace.com/hailoffuckenbullets to check out the album opener Operation Z!
Drummer Ed Warby comments on Operation Z: “On December 7th of 1941 Japan launched Operation Z, a bold surprise attack on the United States which came as such a shock that Roosevelt referred to it as “a date which will live in infamy”. It is no coincidence then that we chose to cover this event in the crushing opening track of our upcoming album “On Divine Winds”. Experience the carnage as hundreds of planes descend from the sky to bring death and destruction, and revel in the aural massacre we unleash upon your ears and necks! Banzai!”
Comments singer Martin van Drunen on the concept of ‘On Divine Winds’: “This time Hail of Bullets takes on the Pacific War. The expansion of the Empire of Japan throughout Asia, introducing a full scale war using all forces combined. The massive strike back of the Americans, whose marines bravely fought many tough and bloody battles on now forgotten insulate islands spread throughout the whole Pacific. This led to desperate Japanese defense tactics such as Kamikaze, human bullets and suicidal Banzai charges. Until finally, incendiary bombings brought the empire to its knees.”
The album title ‘On Divine Winds’ refers to the translation for the Japanese word Kamikaze, as kami stands for “God” and kaze means “wind”.

1. The Eve Of Battle
2. Operation Z
3. The Mukden Incident
