5.0 out of 5 stars An album every metal fan should hear 1 Mar 2008
Format:Audio CD
Without doubt one of the best metal albums I've listened to from recent times. It's got parts that rock and melodic sections that seriously make me wonder how this band doesn't get a hell of a lot more interest than it seems to (judging by this being the first review of this excellent album).
If you're considering buying this album then I can be pretty sure you won't regret it, especially fans of progressive metal such as Opeth, Amorphis etc.
Yeah, so buy this cd, it's awesome.

4.0 out of 5 stars The year's most rewarding repeated listen 15 April 2006
By A. Stutheit - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Burst are an experimental/avant garde/post hardcore band who have received quite a few glowing reviews. After listening to "Origo" for the first time, the listener might wonder why Burst are so widely acclaimed, but this album is a creeper--it slowly creeps under your skin with each listen. When you have completely absorbed these songs, you should realize that they are quite unique, complex, interesting, sophisticated, powerful, innovative, and almost amazing.

The majority of this album is quite heavy, but "Origo" really starts to shine when it gets melodic. The first handful of songs, the churning "Where The Wave Broke," the surging "Sever," and "Immateria," do their best to get the listener's blood pumping, with chunky riffs and throat-straining/shredding yells. The fourth track, "Slave Emotion," continues in this vein, and is backed by thumping snare drums, and stomping, Mastodon-esque (almost buzzsaw) power chords.

Song numbers five and six, "Flight's End" and "Homebound," are the first partially melodic tunes on here. "Homebound" begins melodically, with a dreamy, mesmerizing string arrangement. Next, "It Comes Into View," which features a gorgeous, dwindling string arrangement, strummed acoustic guitars, and a sluggish drum beat, is doubtlessly the prettiest song on here.

Lastly, the remaining two tracks are "Stormwielder" and "Mercy Liberation." These two songs return this album to its heavier, doomy, lumbering, riff-based roots.

So, Burst definitely deserve all of the merited, positive reviews. But I cannot stress this enough: "Origo" will most likely take time to grow on you. It isn't instantly gratifying or accessible, but every time you listen to this album, you'll discover something new, and thus enjoy "Origo" a little more.

5.0 out of 5 stars It Comes into View... In fact this came into View. 19 Dec 2005
By Sunshine the Werewolf - Published on
Format:Audio CD
BURST - Origo
Picture taking the powerful assault of: Through Silver and Blood-era, Neurosis. Blending it with Refused's Shape of Punk to Come, song writing ability. Adding touches of Snapcase like Hardcore drumming and almost Mastodon-Esc guitar parts and you have what would ideally be one of the freshest, most original Metal / Hardcore creations in a long time.... Luckily Burst is able to pull off this amalgamation of styles and have even added beautiful, ambient atmospheric passages. For example the acoustic part in: "It Comes Into View" is almost reminiscent of the works of their current touring mates, Opeth. Even the last track "Mercy Liberation" has parts that would not sound out of place on a Queens of the Stone Age CD.
Their added vocal diversity actually compliments this album and may even showcase its aggression better than Prey on Life.
ORIGO would have climbed into my Top 5 of 2005 list had it been released in North America this year. The European Release date was Oct/Nov 2005. So technically this will begin as the best official album of 06 in my eyes!!!
Favorite Songs: Sever, Slave Emotion, and Stormwielder.

5.0 out of 5 stars BURST made me wait, but it was worth it.. 11 Feb 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I was furious when upon realizing that the release was delayed for North America. But it was certainly worth the wait. Burst has done it again, creatinga beautiful texture that breaks bones. I'm surprised that they retained the "sound" of their previous releases. This sounds like a Burst record without being repetative of their previous releases.

I think people who enjoy Mastodon, Pelican, etc. will VERY MUCH like this release.

Burst is astonishingly good.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Wave Breaks 16 Jun 2006
By doomsdayer520 - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Swedish metal band Burst have been getting some strong reviews from important sources, as a formerly extreme band who are moving into greater complexity and maturity with this album. They're developing strong chops and mature ideas, and that makes this album very listenable and compelling in itself, but there is a certain shortage of personality and uniqueness. As musicians and songwriters, Burst certainly have serious skills. The guitarists and bassist are not afraid to change moods, and explore moodier passages and exotic instrumental breaks. Drummer Patrik Multin is especially impressive in his array of intricate beats, with a full range from aggressive metal jackboot rhythms to slow and sneaky grooves. Meanwhile, singer Linus Jagerskog may seem like a typical nu-metal groaner/screamer at first, but upon repeated listens he reveals some emotion and pathos to match the band's dark lyrics and inventive musical workouts. Those who are familiar with the Deftones may be reminded of a more mature version of singer Chino Moreno, though that's for comparison purposes only.

The progressive metal approach of Burst is best heard in tracks like "The Immateria," "Flight's End," and "Stormwielder." These compelling songs display some very intricate songwriting, especially with the shifting moods and complex dynamics of which most extreme bands are completely incapable. This makes Burst plenty impressive already, but they still have some work ahead of them, in order to become truly memorable over the long term. They've taken their progressive tendencies too far in a few places, especially in the long atmospheric instrumental "It Comes Into View," which was probably meant to establish a mood in the middle of the album and break the heavy tension. But unfortunately that track drifts into a cloudy haze, as do some codas in other songs. And overall, while Burst are progressing very impressively, most of what they're doing is exactly what you'd expect from a "progressive" metal band. They're bursting with emerging skills and maturity, but they haven't yet injected their own personality into those impressive chops. [~doomsdayer520~]

5.0 out of 5 stars BU RST RIGHT NOW 12 Jun 2007
By Lord Chimp - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I kick myself for not hearing this band sooner. Another awesome Swedish band too, is it something about their stupidly high taxes that makes people wanna make some kcik-azz tunes? I forget what motivated me to buy this, but thank goodness I did. Because PURE AWESOME is how I would describe Burst's _Origo_. For lack of descriptive ability, it is often helpful to appeal to comparison. Here it is a struggle, but not too long ago I realized that one may get an evocative idea of them by taking Isis or Cult of Luna as an abstract starting point -- the glacial flow and development, the chapter or movement like approach to its soft-heavy-soft-heavy-etc dynamic structure, the method of riff and texture, the dry powerful voice of the singer. From here one derives Burst by take a similar approach to textured guitars, bass, and effects, staying closer to standard song form (y'know like verses and choruses and stuff), writer shorter cuts that change more often. The music is super heavy like Isis, but not really because of the guitar distortion. Well yes partly because of that, but more because of the overall texture and production. You'll hear this right away when "Where the Wave Broke" begins with its simple, unaccompanied riff - wonderfully distorted but not really heavy itself until the other instruments enter with a mighty blow. Burst's music spirals through standard harmonies but without the gravity of traditional method, kind of like what Fripp did scrupulously with King Crimson in the 80s. the other bands tends to follow a more conventional approach to harmony. The vocals are very tastefully split with some fairly prominent clean, processed vocals alongside the extreme vox. this is not obvious at first simply because the main vocalist's presence is so strong. He sounds like a more organic, emotionalized Jens Kidman (Meshuggah), and that's wicked. Burst's best attribute is their emotional intensity and creativity. The instrumental "It Comes Into View", like the electro-acoustic folk rock of a nuclear fallout aftermath, shows masterful creation of atmosphere, and such subtler strengths are more apparent here. However you will discover the same attributes in the songs themselves, whether through an impassioned verse or a killer instrumental interlude, at all levels of dynamics. "the immateria", "sever", and "homebound" are dramatic mini-epics in their own way without even being very long. "Slave Emotion" and "Stormwielder" merge a basically hardcore aesthetic with a prog-like finesse, unpredictability, and textural wall-of-sound density. The excellent closer "Mercy Liberation" is just stupidly good, its beautifully melodic layers heavily built up until in a stunning moment it restores the melody of the opening theme with a massively dense, heavy arrangement. You can't even breathe through it. the lyrics are cool as well. Despite a few similarities to the other bands I mentioned above, Burst's great merits set them apart. seriously.
