Profile
Osiris is a symphonic rock band from the Kingdom of Bahrain, formed in the late-70s and continuing on and off for over three decades. They have been variably called the Middle-East's answer to Pink Floyd or Camel, although their music also relates to the French prog sound of bands like Pulsar or Atoll, which explains why their European releases have generally come from France.
