5 stars A one off single by the progressive metal band, Others by No One. I have just recently heard about this band, and I gotta say I am very much loving their very eccentric music. They go extremely hard with their music, and they remind me a lot with bands like Haken, The Mars Volta, and even a little bit of Opeth and Genesis. I can definitely tell they'll be pretty big someday, but for now they are a bit unknown and underground. With that, I feel like I can say that this single maybe their best song to date.

Oni-Chan is such a cool song. I feel like it never wastes it's time and gets right into that glorious and punchy progressive metal sound, and that beginning bass riff is so damn good. That middle, more fun filled part of the song is also really good, but in a different way. Where the beginning felt heavy and intense, this feels light hearted and goofy, but in a good way, and even if it's stylized differently compared to the rest of the song, it just fits for some reason. And let's just talk about that ending. It's extremely beautiful and just has some amazing singing. Max Mobarry is such a good vocalist, I would totally love to hear a solo album of her's one day due to this part alone.

This entire single is so, so good. I never felt like my time was wasted or inconvenienced. Is it perfect? Well no, I can say sometimes parts are a little forgettable and the lyrics can be a bit hard to follow, and the plot of the song is kinda mixed in my opinion, but in terms of musicianship and quality, this is amazing. If this is what Prog Metal will be in the soon future with Others by No One and Haken side by side, than good lord I am gonna enjoy this decade of amazing progressive metal.
