Omnipresent excellence 16 July 2014
By A. Stutheit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Think of Origin as like a group of mad scientists. They have frequently been described as such before, and the comparisons really are significant enough to mention. See, this Kansas-bred group of extreme metallists also are extremely smart, experienced, and influential collective that specialize in surgically-precise delivery in order to produce an end product that will only appeal to maybe five or ten percent of the population. But that control group, no matter how small it may be, is absolutely guaranteed to fall deeply in love with it.

This end product of which I am referring to is the masterful 2014 album, “Omnipresent,” Origin’s, sixth album proper, and doubtlessly one of their finest hours. It takes a cue from “Antithesis” by being much more epic and realized than any of the works that Origin released subsequently to that watershed-worthy 2008 effort, and one that features actually audible bass work and excellent guitar solos. (For example, check out “Unattainable Zero,” which is adorned by both a viscerally grumbling bass line and epic, exotically melodic solo section.) And the end result is also one that produces a significantly greater amount of tempo variation, and individual song identity (i.e. standout tracks).

Origin’s musicianship remains top-notch all-throughout this thirty-seven-minute-long playing time -- that much is an absolute no-brainer. And so is the fact that it is riddled with positively blistering riffage and jackhammer-insistent drum beats. But that the band delves into compact-yet-simultaneously-fleshed-out, and not only mature but also downright epic songwriting is what really sets the bar high, and makes them distinguish themselves as a cut above most of the rest of the extreme metal/technical death-grind playing field. And the rhythms, no matter dense as they might be, always fly by quicker than you can say “speed metal.” I would say they fly by so fast that you don’t even know what hit you, but doing so would be a touch misleading, as these songs do certainly leave a lasting impression.

Tracks like the opening “All Things Dead” are wildly frenetic blasts of energy loaded with careening guitars (i.e. chunky riffing, blistering leads, etc.), brain-rattling gravity blasts, and freaky, Cryptopsy/Dying Fetus-styled high/low vocal patterns; whereas cuts like the ensuing “Thrall: Fulcrum: Apex” evoke classic grindcore, what being one minute-long blast fests that are stuffed to the gills with head-spinning, face-ripping tempos, insane grindcore blasts, machine gun riffs, and the like. Later on, the band take a page out of the Nineties melodeath playbook by tossing in a couple of minute-long instrumental interludes in the form of “Permanence” and “Continuum,” both of which are tracks that feature serpentine, crystalline-sounding melodic leads and harmonies. But this is before the album pounds back in full brutality, with the pummeling “Manifest Desolate” succeeding the former case, and the thunderous “Continuum” following-up the latter.

And the band continue to incessantly pummel the life out of your eardrums with songs like “The Absurdity Of What I Am,” which kick starts with a long-overdue drum solo from skinsman John Lengstreth (that is guaranteed to get you pumped up, by the way) before catapulting into pulverizing death-grind territory with screaming, shriek-happy vocals, and buzzsaw riffing. And the fact that an actual, honest-to-god catchy chorus comes into play, here, also helps make “Absurdity” the big highlight that it is. And the album’s centerpiece, “Source Of Icon O,” again works up a frothing amount of energy and carnage-inducing instrumental interplay as it gallivants back and forth between sharp, barbed guitar hooks and stop-start grindcore blasts that evoke the sound of two machine guns firing at once.

And later on, Origin continue adding a few new tools to their repertoire, as on the catchy, straightforwardly thrashy “Redistribution Of Filth” and the largely instrumental epic “Obsolescence.” The latter of these two tunes opens with a shockingly melodic and subdued, symphonic-sounding intro, thus making it a huge standout. Of course, the fact that this piece of pure, exotic ambiance is augmented by some nicely jazzy melodic solo work also helps aide this fact. As epic as “Obsolescence” is, though, it is nearly overshadowed by the two tracks that come next.

“Malthusian Collapse” is a concertedly epic piece, one that clocks in at 4:10 in length, and segues through several different places, including restrained chugging but also completely blown-out, grindcore-worthy chaos. And this number also features a lengthy instrumental section that is strictly mid-tempo (not fast or slow, just mid-tempo), and adorned by chunky, serrated riffing. And the second-half of this epic late-album arrival comes in the form of “The Indiscriminate,” which also finds Origin thinking outside of the box, expanding their sonic scope, and dabbling with all sorts of tempo variation (including mid-tempo sections that set the stage well for breakneck excursions and blasts of catchy, stop-start picking and drumming.)

Flawlessly played and impeccably delivered (yet done so in a way as to retain a certain level of live energy), “Omnipresent” is insanely intricate, inventive, enthralling, and utterly devastating body of work, and one that is an early contender for 2014’s extreme metal/deathgrind album of the year honors.

Immaculate Technicality, Unparalleled Speed, & Some Goodies 6 Aug 2014
By Scott Rosenbluth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's ORIGIN. Wholly inhuman musicianship played with unparalleled speed, immaculate technicality and crafted into actual song structures. Jason Keyser (ex-Skinless vocalist) gives the band a dynamic that was lacking on the previous album Entity and his vocals are lower, deeper and slower than ex-vocalist James Lee, but they adhere nicely to the super speed riffs. Longstrength and Ryan are masters at their crafts, drums and guitar respectively and neither does anything but bolster their legendary status'. There are a couple more straightforward grinding punk songs that are heaven for a kid who came to death metal from speed punk, and it shows that regardless of observable talent, a rocking song is a rocking song. Great addition to Origin's cannon of work, a tick better than Echoes of Decimation. Again, it's Origin, the fastest, deathiest tech band of the last decade, why wait?

Good release by a great band 25 July 2014
By Metalhead74 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've read a couple reviews that criticized this release by Origin. It ain't the BEST Origin release (so far, "Anti-thesis" seems to be winning that contest). I will take issue with any bad reviews for this album. This is what Origin does: they create heavy, ultra fast and technical brutal death metal. The few "bad" reviews I've read say all the songs sound too monotonous -the same. Well, with dense music like this, sometimes that happens. I did notice they added a few things in they haven't really done in the past, like synths and stand alone melodic guitar solos. Don't listen to the naysayers: do your own homework, listen to the album on YouTube (or somewhere) and then if YOU like it, buy it. I did and I don't regret it. A strong album from a great band.
