Osiris Rising

About the artist:
Osiris Rising was an independent alternative metal from South Florida U.S. who did not reach an international audience until after the death of their lead guitar player, Joseph Robert Arthur (1982 to 2006).

Hard rock, grunge, metal and gothic rock styling’s make their genre difficult to classify. The band was created in 2002 by Fort Lauderdale underground music scene musicians guitarist Joe Arthur (aka Leviathan), drummer Brian Vorisek (aka VoR), and Peruvian born vocalist Michael Ibarra. Bass player Paul Arthur (aka Papa Middy) joined the band in 2003.

Osiris Rising turned down an opportunity with Drive Thru Records in 2004 to pursue an indie CD release. Their notorious live shows and unique sound earned them a prominent spot in the Florida rock club circuit.

Their debut album Diluting The Gene Pool has received international airplay on college radio, internet radio, POD casts, and most notably on Radio Belgrade in Serbia and Radio Free Iraq.

Twenty three year old guitar player and main song writer Joseph Robert Arthur, died in a car accident just weeks after the band had begun pursuing a record deal with Atlantic Records early in 2006.
