I completely agree with the previous reviewer....this is the best DM album to be released in as long as I can remember; as far as tech-death is concerned I hold the opinion that it is unsurpassed, even by such bench-mark albums as Cryptopsy's None so Vile and even Suffocation's Pierced from Within!!
The reason for this is simple and quite sad really(that you cant often say it about more bands in this genre) Origin have taken this over-saturated style of extreme music and twisted it into something quite definitive, distinctive and memorable. The songs on display here are well crafted and mind bogglingly technical, yet they never descend into mere fret-board wankery. High points are difficult to pick due to the stratospheric standard throughout. Highly recommended
