ORIGIN: U.S. Headlining Tour Announced!

February 23rd, 2012

Genre defining technical death metal giants, ORIGIN, will tour the United States this April/May on an epic headlining run that will bring together some of today’s best brutal bands. Groups like spastic-vegetarian-gore-grinders CATTLE DECAPITATION, psychedelically influenced tech-deathsters DECREPIT BIRTH, groove laden death-gore mongers ABORTED, and underground buzz band sensations RINGS OF SATURN and BATTLECROSS. Commented gentlemen drummer/wordsmith John Longstreth of ORIGIN:

 

“Hey ladies n’ germs, it’s Longstreth of ORIGIN here with a little dirt on what we currently have on the table. We’re calling it OCCUPATION DOMINATION 2012. Simply put, it’s the most brutal death metal tour package of the spring and it’s starting up in the end of April and running all the way through till the end of May. This tour is for fans of the extreme, blast beat driven, face melting, skull crushing, type of DEATH METAL that parents and young children are still afraid of. In addition to ORIGIN, we have CATTLE DECAPITATION, ABORTED, DECREPIT BIRTH, and new comers RINGS OF SATURN and BATTLECROSS coming through your town to lay waste to your local music venues. It would be appropriate to consider these shows more endurance tests than metal concerts. Come out and treat yourself to death metal boot camp this spring to ensure yourself that you will be in top shape for the next ‘progressive’ core band or washed up ‘old school death metal’ fest tour that will be sure to roll through the states soon after. Cheers and see you there!”

Entity was released on June 7, 2011, and was recorded at Chapman Recording Studios in Lenexa, Kansas with longtime engineer and friend Robert Rebeck. Artwork was handled this time around by Colin Marks (NEVERMORE, KATAKLYSM, EXODUS).

 

One of the most intense and technical forces of the contemporary death metal world, ORIGIN has returned to stake its claim as the leader of metal’s new wave of extremity with its fifth studio effort, Entity. As expected, the death the band continues to churn out frantic, hell-paced grids of metal torment, but now further complements the arrangements with a newfound propensity for churning grooves and the hook-laden approach that first reared its ugly, but accessible head on the band’s 2007 offering, Antithesis. As stated multiple times in the past, ORIGIN proves once again that they stand head and shoulders above their peers.

ORIGIN: Track by Track Commentary Part 3

May 2nd, 2011

Technical death masters, ORIGIN, have released third of three track by track commentaries concerning their highly anticipated new album Entity. Part 3 is as follows:

“9. Banishing Illusion
John Longstreth: NAPALM DEATH, REPULSION, ROTTEN SOUND, MISERY INDEX, grind!!! So fun!

 

Paul Ryan: Our grind song. S.O.D. meets NAPALM DEATH meets CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER. Just fucking fun to play!

 

10. Consequence of Solution
John Longstreth: Epic #2. Lots of parts, kind of like ‘Phantom of the Opera’ by IRON MAIDEN. See if you can pick out my Pete Sandoval tribute.  A lot of new ideas surfacing on this one.  It’s almost like a montage of what you might hear on the next album.

Paul Ryan: The beginning of the song up to the thunder storm was the first thing written for the album and the rest was the last for us to finish. The most changes in a song we have ever done. Really excited about how this came out and what our fans will think. Rob Rebeck did a amazing Job!!!
Mike Flores: I think this may have been the first song Paul started to show me back in May of ‘09. It was just a short piece then.
11. Evolution Of Extinction

John Longstreth: For me, this song is all about flow.  Very back beat oriented. This guy has deep pockets. It should make the ladies dance, the men headbang, and the kids tear each other to hreds.  Some more groove in the end just in case you forgot. SOMEONE likes BOLT THROWER.

Paul Ryan: Its got all the riffs for all the right moods. You can headbang. You can throwdown in the pit to it and  for the ladys you can shake your backside to it!

Mike Flores: One of my favorites. Definitely dig the topic.
12. You Fail

John Longstreth: The quickest written song on the album.  I started making dinner while Paul was playing with the arpeggio bendy bit in my living room.  I think he had the entire thing complete by the time I had tacos made. Oh yea, black metal.

Paul Ryan: This song was written in about a day with a couple riffs that were just on the back burner. One of my favorite riffs is the arpeggio w the bend!!! Just thrown together and it worked! RABID TERADACTYL VOCALS!!!”

Look for Entity in both physical and digital formats on June 7 (N. America) and June 10 (Europe). Artwork (attached) was handled this time around by Colin Marks.

Entity Track Listing:
1. Expulsion Of Fury
2. Purgatory
3. Conceiving Death

ORIGIN: Track by Track Commentary Part 2

April 21st, 2011

Technical death masters, ORIGIN, have released the second of three track by track commentaries concerning their highly anticipated new album Entity. Part 2 is as follows:

“5. Saligia
John Longstrength: This is one of the two epics of the album if you don’t count the first three songs as a single unit (which is fine if you do).  We started working on this song in New York about two years ago in the winter.  Despite its density and size, this song came together with relative ease (for me).

 

Paul Ryan: My favorite track on the album and one of the most personal when I wrote it. I didn’t know if we could pull it off but we did. Took about five takes at getting the solo with the right feel. For fans of WRATH OF VISHNU!!!

 

6. The Descent

Paul Ryan: An interlude to give the listener a break. Peaceful yet dark.

John Longstrength: MY BEST DRUM PERFORMANCE EVER!!!

 

7. Fornever
John Longtrength: Something about this song that just gets me every time.  It was a complete pain in the ass to learn, but every time I got it right I felt like I had accomplished something special.  I wont speak any further on this song. Its music so it requires no words to be spoken about it.

Paul Ryan: Influenced by two of my favorite bands DEATH and SUFFOCATION. I was listening to a lot of Individual Thought Patterns and Pierced From Within when I wrote the music for this one. It took a little bit to get all the stops tight but once we did it was awesome!
Mike Flores: Yep, the end of the song was like playing a video game. Addicted to playing it because I was so close to playing it right. Took some time to understand it.
8. Committed
John Longstrength: By far the most experimental thing we have done to date.  Simple and to the point for me until the “numbers section”,  but totally off the hook for guitars.

Paul Ryan: One of the craziest high pitch screechy things I have ever written. Its the song that the guy who listens to death metal brings his girlfriend that doesn’t listen to metal to a show and she will be like, “why do you listen to this? WTF?! FML!”
Mike Flores: This song just sounds scary! It sounds like a horror movie seen with your ears.”

Look for Entity in both physical and digital formats on June 7 (N. America) and June 10 (Europe). Artwork (attached) was handled this time around by Colin Marks.

Entity Track Listing:
1. Expulsion Of Fury
2. Purgatory
3. Conceiving Death

ORIGIN: Track by Track Commentary Part 1

April 15th, 2011

Technical death masters, ORIGIN, have released the first of three track by track commentaries concerning their highly anticipated new album Entity. Part 1 is as follows:

“1. Expulsion of Fury

Paul Ryan: Well I don’t how to put it other than WE’RE BACK! It’s just a taste of what’s to come. Out of the gate at LUDICROUS SPEED with one of the most challenging ORIGIN riffs of all time, then it slams into our traditional pattern blasting. Followed by a new challenge of song composition & dynamics. The last riff is a heartbeat pulse that John throws a machine gun blast that’s just pummeling.

John Longstrength: A heartbeat with a BAAAAAAD murmur. This first half of this song is like going back in time and visiting the Informis Infinitas Inhumanitas days for me.  For 10 years people have been asking ORIGIN to play grooves, so we play some grooves right here. if there isn’t enough on this song, what do we do?
2. Purgatory

John Longstrength: WE PLAY ANOTHER GROOVE!!!!  But immediately bring back the warp speed brutality.  This is one of the handful of songs that we worked on while stranded in Holland for 12 days.  Brings back strange memories of experimenting with a 5 piece.

Paul Ryan: I always wanted to do something really heavy and draw the listener in and then explode back out with a really quick riff. Short and sick like!

Mike Flores: Super catchy followed immediately by crazy. Fun at first but then it starts to hurt.


3. Conceiving Death
John Longstrength: The final song of the opening trilogy of Entity.  This song incorporates classic ORIGIN death grind, break downs, a really bizarre punch section and some black metal thrown in at the end JUST to make sure all the bases are covered.

 

Paul Ryan: About as brutal as you can get on this one for me. Mike & I split up the lyrics/vocal patterns on this one. I wrote the solo w a little IRON MAIDEN harmony at the tail end for fun!

 

4. Swarm
John Longstrength: Classic meat n’ potatoes ORIGIN. Short and sweet. This is the first song Paul and I worked on in my living room with padded drums and a POD plugged into my stereo.

 

Paul Ryan: In your face ORIGIN. Fast swarming guitars!”

Look for Entity in both physical and digital formats on June 7 (N. America) and June 10 (Europe). Artwork (attached) was handled this time around by Colin Marks.

Entity Track Listing:
1. Expulsion Of Fury

ORIGIN SIGNS WORLDWIDE DEAL WITH NUCLEAR BLAST

November 18th, 2010

Extreme Management Group and American technical death metal innovators ORIGIN are pleased to announce the band’s worldwide recording contract with Nuclear Blast Records. ORIGIN, who are responsible for such genre-defining classics as Informis Infinitas Inhumanitas (2002) and Antithesis (2008), will enter Chapman Recording Studios in Lenexa, Kansas tomorrow with long-time engineer Robert Rebeck to record their Nuclear Blast debut.  Rebeck’s work can be heard on ORIGIN’s Antithesis and Echoes Of Decimation (2005) albums in addition to the A Coming Into Existence demo (1998).

“It is a great honor to be working with Nuclear Blast,” comments founding member & guitarist Paul Ryan.  “We are excited to be working with a label with such an amazing presence in the metal scene. They have some of the best extreme bands in the history of extreme music and we are very honored to be apart of this.  We are eager to join the ranks of the Nuclear Blast roster!”

Drummer John Longstreth adds: “We are very excited to begin working on our next album under the guide of Nuclear Blast Records!  Being signed to one of the largest and most successful heavy metal labels makes it only natural that you will definitely be seeing a lot more of this band.  Plans are already being laid by Extreme Management Group for the U.S., Europe, Asia, South America, Mexico and pretty much everywhere with a stage and (future) ORIGIN fans.  To us, it’s only fitting that after 10 years, it came time to make a few positive changes so that we could continue to create this insane form of music for you.  We are very excited to bring album #5 to our fans and we feel confident that our fans will not be let down.”
Ryan Caddell, who directed and filmed the video clip for “Portal” and the bonus video on Echoes Of Decimation, will be joining the guys in the studio once again to document the creative process leading up to the creation of ORIGIN’s fifth album plus capture all the behind-the-scenes mayhem.

View the video for the song “Finite” off the album Antithesis here.  The video was directed by David Brodsky (Kataklysm, Arsis, Black Dahlia Murder, SYL) of MyGoodEye.
