Singled Out: Oni's Barn Burner


Oni are gearing up to release their new album "Ironshore" and to celebrate we asked vocalist Jake Oni to tell us about the new single "Barn Burner". Here is the story:

We originally discussed a "get in the pit and die" track on the album and "Barn Burner" is exactly that track. Musically, we went for something fast, heavy, and based around dream-like, mysterious tones. The track is inspired by a dream about parallel universes, lined up like ripples in the water. A girl walked between the ripples and changed her surroundings at will. Working on this concept, the words just poured themselves onto the page. It is pretty technical and has plenty of riffs that will make your head spin.

We recently did a premiere of "Barn Burner" online, and we presented it as a lyric video directed by Wovenwar / ex-As I Lay Dying guitarist Nick Hipa. We're really glad that he was able to work on this one with us.

As the first track on our new album Ironshore, you will encounter a lot of guttural sounds, and extreme metal that we love to play. "Barn Burner" is one of nine tracks that are packed full of contrasts and contradictions, grace and violence. We don't want to produce endless sound-alike tracks, instead each track has a distinct character of its own; we refuse to limit ourselves to a single mood or tone and this will be clear when you listen to the album in its entirety.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
