2016 was a breakout year for ONI, who proved their lasting prowess with the release of their debut album 'Ironshore', toured with heavy metal greats such as Max & Iggor Cavalera and Children of Bodom, and tore up the stage at Ozzfest Meets Knotfest with Randy Blythe of Lamb Of God with whom they collaborated on the recently premiered video of “The Only Cure”.

With their influences rooted in progressive metal, ONI's sound can be compared to the genre's heavy hitters - The Human Abstract, Protest The Hero and Between The Buried And Me - yet they remain truly unique. With Jake Oni handling vocal duties, Martin Andres and Brandon White on guitar, Chase Bryant on bass and Joe Greulich on drums, they are also perhaps the first metal band to feature a xylosynth player, Johnny D, which adds an intriguing dynamic to the nine tracks found on 'Ironshore'. Produced by Josh Wilbur (Lamb Of God, Gojira), the album takes listeners on an absorbing ride that provides ample opportunity for head-banging, singing along and deep introspection.
