Technical death metal band Origin have posted the first of three track-by-track features of their new album, as well as the first studio v-log chronicling the recording process. Click here to watch the video.
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?
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!
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!”
The band’s latest released was their 2008 effort titled “Antithesis,” released via Relapse Records.
