ORIGIN (USA/Ks): s/t Cd 2000 Relapse

Don’t be mislead by the cover alone, ORIGIN is not just your average run-o-the-mill band with a knack for Aliens or other ridicoulous stuff. ORIGIN is one of the most rough, abrasive Death Metal acts of the last years. Constantly changing tempos, with a terrific display of drum handling prowess, with guitars that seem carved out of stone, heavy, granitic, continuously stopped to imprint more energy to every single pull of that fucking cord. Vocals cross in the maelstrom to recreate 2/3 simultanous effects. And regarding the lyrics, they’re definitely more interesting than one can thing at a first glance, they deal with death, rage and destruction on a grander scale, the title track “Origin” for example talks about the unavooidablity of life and death in the universe, about the inescapable end that awaits everything that is born and has a life of itself. Fury, inner conlicts exploded into the universe itself coat the style of ORIGIN’s unsurpassingly rhytmical anti-melodic Death Metal, there is not an ounce of nice hip-op metal here, it is death 100% although pretty original as well. If you heard EUPHORIC EVISCERATION, earlier SHREDDED CORPSE or the latest GORGUTS you know what I mean for “abrasive”: the vocals are the sort that hurt your throat, and the riffs themselves are constantly curling like a serpent without head. Really fucking HEAVY.
