Ironshore, which hit stores in November 2016, can be ordered now via www.metalblade.com/oni and/or streamed via Spotify. Ironshore was produced by Josh Wilbur, primarily recognized for his work with top metal artists Lamb Of God and Gojira. Upon release of the album, ONI undoubtedly introduced the metal world to the wonders of Xylosynth, which you can witness first hand via this superhuman playthrough for the track “Barn Burner” here.
