Where's My Osmosis? is the first extended play and debut outing by the American alternative metal band Osmosis. Initially a self-released effort in 1994 that saw a very limited print, it has now been properly re-released on July 22, 2014, under Season of Mist, alongside the band's second EP; this version features different artwork and production tweaking, two previously-unreleased tracks, and a rendition of "Let Me Down Gently" with Marco's vocals.

Like with their second "unofficial" offering, Ron Wilkes was the original frontman, but due to "musical and artistic differences", he was fired from the band. Original rhythm guitarist Marco Simmer switched to vocal duties afterward.

CompositionEdit

In terms of sound, Where's My Osmosis? (as well as You Can't Beat Me) showcased a more "stripped-down" style of the band compared to subsequent releases. While primarily an alternative metal album, elements of funk and post-hardcore are also prevalent; this is most notable on the song "Open the Body". Track 5, "Let Me Down Gently" (the longest song on the EP), dabbles with disco at certain points.
