Origin To Release Anniversary Album “Abiogenesis – A Coming Into Existence”

Origin will be releasing an anniversary album titled “Abiogenesis – A Coming Into Existence“ on May 3. The effort is a compilation of recreated versions of songs that were originally created by guitarist Paul Ryan in 1991-1996.

A press release offered more info:

“‘Abiogenesis – A Coming Into Existence‘ was recorded and recreated from the original 1991-1996 era that preceded Origin‘s official formation. The album features never-before released tracks, that laid foundations to one of America’s top death metal purveyors.

The tracks on ‘Abiogensis‘ were recreated to the best of his ability, by founding Origin member & mastermind Paul Ryan, who recorded all instruments himself, between 2013 and 2018.

The twelve-track album includes eighth new (previously unreleased) tracks from the pre-Origin period, spanning from the “Necrotomy” (1990-1991) to “Thee Abomination” (1992-1993) era of the band (the ‘Abiogenesis‘ part of the album). They’re followed by a remastered version of Origin‘s first ever EP from 1998 (and first ever death metal recording to use the “gravity blast” drumming technique) as a special bonus re-release for all Origin fans & album collectors (‘A Coming Into Existence‘ part). This EP was never available for worldwide release before.”

Ryan himself added:

“Over the years people have asked me how Origin just came to be as a band so ferocious virtually out of nowhere. This is a small summary of the Origins of Origin. Basically, I spent a lot of my youth at shows at the outhouse practicing garage grinding, basement blasting & shed shredding anywhere I could, composing as what my father would call ‘Infernal Racket’ as I was very passionate about death metal.

That’s all I ever wanted to do. A lot of missed opportunities as we just couldn’t put it together into making a album (some music was meant to be underground), so these tracks are some of my earliest creations from the Necrotomy (1990-1991) & Thee Abomination (1992-1993) period.

This is by no means the current direction of the band Origin, but simply music that is the Origins of Origin. I did to the best of my ability to recreate the instrumentation of all the former members & the guys who I played this music with blended into each track (& yes there was a lot of editing!!!!). I’m officially retired from recording drums ever again!”.

Origin Premiere “Infinitesimal To The Infinite” Video

Origin have premiered a new video for “Infinitesimal To The Infinite.” This song is from their latest album “Unparalleled Universe.”

Jason Keyser commented:

“In Origin‘s first official music video in nearly a decade, we are happy to present ‘Infinitesimal To The Infinite‘, directed by Jeffrey Sisson. A conceptual nightmare in the form of a reverse/revenge extra-terrestrial abduction, ‘Infinitesimal To The Infinite‘ is an example of no matter how vast the expanse of space or how advanced some of its occupants may be, there is pain enough for all. In an indiscriminate universe we are unequivocally equal in our suffering.”
