To celebrate a decade of success, Sumerian Records kicked off the Sumerian 10 Year Tour this past February. BORN OF OSIRIS performed at the second to the last show at the Reverb in Reading, PA.

Born of Osiris headlined the show and stepped onstage around 10 p.m. They wasted no time tearing into a 90-minute set with songs that spanned their entire catalogue. Their set came complete with heavy smoke and lasers. I never saw the band live, but their performance at the Reverb was incredible. They had tough acts to follow, but Born of Osiris was on top of their game as they played through a 16 song set, including “The Other Half of Me,” “The Sleeping and the Dead,” and “Illuminate” from their latest release, Soul Sphere. They tossed in a few from their 2007 effort, The New Reign, including “Open Arms to Damnation” and “Empires Erased.”
