Get Lost Forever in ONI’s “Eternal Recurrence”

In Japanese folklore, the ONI is a malevolent shapeshifting demon, able to take on many guises as it spreads pain and misery. In Canada, apparently it means heavy as balls progressive metal with an electronic marimba (called a Xylosynth) player. No, don’t expect to hear the dulcet tones of wooden blocks being struck with mallets, he pretty much uses it as a MIDI controller to trigger a synth module – but holy crap can he (and the other members of the band) play!


Check out their new single “Eternal Recurrence”, and look for them on tour right now through May 11th with Devil You Know!

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
