Born of Osiris

Touring alongside heavyweights who dole out metal by the tonnage -- such as Hatebreed, Unearth, Cannibal Corpse and Hate Eternal -- has to be intimidating for the opening band Chicago's death metal warriors, Born of Osiris. The band revealed three highly effective measures that allow them to hold their own amongst their tourmates, all of which prevent them from freaking the hell out about the company which they find themselves amongst.

Joe Buras told Noisecreep, "It's simply Red Bull, two Summer Slaughter tours and our youth." Anyone who has downed the tasty, jittery energy beverage or has seen Born of Osiris on either of the Summer Slaughter runs can attest to both matters aiding the band's raw, unflinching brutasticness. And you can't argue with youth, either!

Born of Osiris released 'A Higher Place' earlier this year and will spend the fall laying waste to venues with the aforementioned metal monsters. If you plan on attending this tour, stock up on some Icy Hot, since your neck will ache from banging your noggin as hard as you can.
