 <年度海外特集 Annual Overseas Features> Part 4: Born of Osiris – New York City

Born of Osiris have given an incredible set during Zombie 5 Tour in New York City. Vocalist Ronnie Canizaro has not stopped smiling while shouting out the depressed lyrics brutally. BOO had scheduled to play at Heart Town Festival in Hong King and Taiwan last year but unfortunately pulled out at the last minute.

來到海外特集第四部分有上年山海屯音樂節臨時退出的Born of Osiris,主唱 Ronnie 在整個演唱會中帶著笑容,悠然自得的叫喊出歌詞,他翌日更在我們網站相片下留言,説希望今日也會可以上台繼續演出!(因為兩天後才會有下個專場)希望BOO有一天會再進行亞洲巡演吧。
