Guitarist/vocalist Paul Ryan commented:

“Chaosmos‘… 25 years in the making. I’m personally super excited to present this album to our fanbase and I hope that they are excited to experience it as well! I personally tried to combine elements of every era stylistically of each album in this release and with the continuation of the same lineup for the last few albums I hope our fan base connects to the music that we have created!

Over the years, so many bands have used and imitated our musical approach but the most important elements of Origin‘s music are songwriting, composition, and structure dynamics, not just technicality and flare – and that can never be replicated. Thank you for taking the time to listen to our newest album to date …. Chaosmos.”

Origin drummer John Longstreth commented:

“Here we are again! Announcing yet another tour! I am happy to report to you that Origin will be hitting the road with Abysmal Dawn, Tombs, and Killitorous! After a two year break, I think it’s easy to understand that everyone may be a little apprehensive, nervous, or maybe just flat out rusty from a 2-year break of not doing what we love, and LUCKILY we get to share this new beginning with some familiar touring friends in Abysmal Dawn!

No one is going to feel all that embarrassed about if I can’t remember how to set up a drum kit, or if Charles Elliott has taken on clean singing, or someone forgets where their dirty, sweaty, stinky, salty stage laundry goes in the van! (it goes in the trailer, dear reader, NOT the van. in a blue Ikea bag, if ya must know).

Along with us comes Ottawa’s Killitorous, and Tombs From Brooklyn, NY to shake things up with everything black, death, tech, doom, and straight out METAL! So come out and get up close and see what all 4 of these bands have been ruminating in for the past 2 years! See you on tour!”

Malefic Throne (Morbid Angel, Origin, Etc.) Premiere New Song “Deciding The Hierarchy”

Malefic Throne, the new project featuring Gene Palubicki (Perdition Temple), Steve Tucker (Morbid Angel), and John Longstreth (Origin, Hate Eternal), have premiered a new song titled “Deciding The Hierarchy.” This track is from the band’s upcoming self-titled EP, which will be released through Hells Headbangers. Palubicki said the following about the project:

“Malefic Throne was conceived over conversations and shared ideas among the three of us since around summer of 2020, deep in the early pandemic upheaval, while everyone was — and has been — in limbo for live shows/tours/etc. We hit on the idea of just going for it, writing some furious death metal material with the three of us, and seeing what would happen. Given who the bandmembers are, it is surely clear the nature of what this is all about. We originally considered just doing an independently released demo, but we approached Hells Headbangers to see if they were interested in handling the debut EP release. They agreed, and onward it goes.”

Omnium Gatherum Premiere “Fortitude” Music Video

Omnium Gatherum have premiered a new video for their new song “Fortitude.” This track is from the band’s new album “Origin,“ which will be released on November 5. The group commented:

“‘Fortitude‘ was filmed at Munapirtti, an island in the Southeast Finland, near Kotka. This cabin is the sacred sanctuary, our secret lair in the woods, where we have rehearsed many many bandcamps before entering the studios to record new albums since ‘New World Shadows‘. Isolated from the world.”

Omnium Gatherum Premiere “Reckoning” Music Video

Omnium Gatherum have premiered a new video for their new song “Reckoning.” This track is from the band’s new album “Origin,“ which will be released on November 5.

Guitarist Markus Vanhala commented:

“‘Reckoning‘ is a certain powersong or an uplifting song which we needed to rise from the depths of a past year, and it was the last song we wrote for the new album. Adult oriented death metal at its finest glory, that dark and shiny place where Def Leppard and death metal meets. Death Leppard, maybe? The music video saved a warm memory from a very hot summer day in my hometown of Kotka, where we played at the rocks of the beautiful island of Rankki. Lying on the rocks zipping cold beer and driving with the boats at the sea. Kotka isn’t that far from Miami, except geographically.”

Vocalist Jukka Pelkonen added:

“This song is clearly and absolutely about a situation where someone is really trying to mess things up and goes about doing it in secrecy. ‘A Story’ about an individual who is so messed up that he/she turns against the people who really matter. This is a certain way to ruin, yet the one doing so denies all responsibility ‘avoiding only the truth’…”
