Origin to begin recording new album

Monday, January 6, 2014 12:10 PM PT / 2,091 views

Official press release: Genre defining technical death metal giants, Origin, recently returned home after a successful tour with Gorguts (successful minus vocalist Jason Keyser dislocating his finger while on stage) and will enter the studio. Drummer John Longstreth checked in to give us the following update: "So in a couple of days, we're off to the land of OZ to start working on the 6th Origin album entitled Omnipresent. Again, we are very lucky to have Nuclear Blast USA on our side to support and release the album. We figured it would only make sense to return to Chapman Recording in Lenexa, KS and torture poor Robert Rebeck with our decompositions, until he's able to (at risk of his own sanity) chip away at this mess of music and render it into a cohesive auditory masterpiece! As usual, expect all the classic Origin devices and surprises that drives this band with every new album. Be ready for heaviness; this album is going to crush. "Speaking of old and new, we are also very excited to mark the studio premier of Jason Keyser as Origin's vocalist. Please send him your love, prayers, general good energy, meditation, money, etc. for we are surely sure to 'show him a good time' in the studio. Origin records albums in a somewhat masochistic, chaotic, and senseless fashion. It's our best trick, and we need the best guy for our best trick, so that's why we have Jason. He's had two years of hard road work with the band and we know he's the guy. For those that weren't aware, Origin recorded Entity as a trio without a proper vocalist, so we are very excited to have Jason in to do what a proper vocalist is supposed to do, and in the end leave less work for Paul and Mike! "So, in closing, cheers to 2013. In 2014 Omnipresent, by Origin will be everywhere. See you on tour!"

The drums are programmed on most their stuff, so its not like John is a pivotal member anyways.

This band bothers me. Painfully formulaic and produced, super gimmicky. Well there's my two-cents LG...


anonymous 1/6/2014 2:54:25 PM

I was going to say, rip on them for the repetitive arpeggios but stay away from the drumming! One of the best live bands I have seen. Great guitarists(including bassist) and drummer

John Longstreth is one of the best drummers in metal (Angelcorpse amongst the many bands he's been in or recorded with...) His kit is triggered, for sure, but it's still really difficult to pull that shit off, and do it night after night on tour. They sound good live too. Also, yeah sure, musics fairly repetitive... but so is most metal, and death metal especially. Not saying this is my favorite band in the world, but jesus christ if they aren't great to listen to every once in awhile.
