"Find Me in the Rice" is a track recorded by the Sacramento, California-based metal band Osmosis, which was off their seventh full-length studio album, Soul Society. It was released as the band's sophomore single on July 9, 2013. The title is a reference to Samurai 7.
This song happened to be one of five on the album to feature original percussionist Corey Farrell on drums.
Musical style and themesEdit
Soundwise, much of "Find Me in the Rice" was played in a style very reminiscent of Down and Novembers Doom, what with the rather foreboding tone of the music, frontman Marco Simmer's nigh-sorrowful vocals, and an emphasis on "slow and moody guitars". It has been considered to be, perhaps, the band's most darkest song, although definitely not the heaviest.
Regarding the lyrical content, former lead guitarist Shawn Lorelei has said this in an interview:
- "Not unlike a lot of lyrics I've written in the past, this song here, "Find Me in the Rice", follows one story in particular: it's about this mentally unstable boy who was abandoned by his parents. He's out somewhere in the ocean with all these destroyed ships, each of which standing for a feeling of negativity. This is the part where I say, 'The song pretty much speaks for itself. Read the rest of the lyrics and see where I'm coming from.'"
