Technical death metal masters ORIGIN have inked a European record deal with Agonia Records. The band’s new album – the follow-up to 2011’s Entity – is entitled Omnipresent and will be made available this summer. Cover artwork, tracklist, and other vital details will be revealed shortly.
I don’t know about you, but this news kills. ORIGIN are so nasty. Entity and that last Aeon record jump started my restored faith in death metal which continued with recent Hate Eternal and Gorguts. So cheers to more Origin!
Formed in Kansas (North America) in 1997, ORIGIN is one of the top, most intense and most brutal technical death metal forces to be reckoned with. Since its inception, the group has charted twice on the Billboard Top Heatseekers (with Antithesis at #21 and Entity at #20) and emerged on countless highly-energetic shows across the world. In 2007, ORIGIN reached Europe for the first time in career (on tour with Misery Index and Necrophagist) and five years later, in 2012, reclaimed The Old Continent together with Suffocation. This coming May, ORIGIN will be heading out on a headlining run in South East Asia and Australia.
The band made a statement regarding their new deal for Europe: “ORIGIN is proud to be a part of the Agonia Records family! We feel that this is the strongest move on our quest for total omnipresence, and are excited to share our latest cut of sheer technical brutality throughout Europe and beyond. We are everywhere and nowhere. We are Origin. Hail Space.”
