Then they kicked it back off with "Ubiquitous", which turned everything back up to 11 this time.
Origin unparalleled universe
It just never ends! The section at slows the pace down a notch to pave the way for an excellent groove section, then it's back to business as usual - pure death metal orgasm, not diluted in any way, shape or form. Surely it's a good listen, but it's not what I ordered period. But thankfully, Origin seemed to have heard my prayers and launched "Void", a short interlude lasting around 40 seconds. I mean, James Lee has to be one of the best vocalists around. They do what they do, and they do it far better than most, and with a true touch of class. Next up we have the first single from the album, in the form of "Finite. Up next is "Consuming Misery", and what this track shows again besides the obvious incredible and imaginative riffs is that Origin really took the time to write this thing, because all of the sections have been arranged to perfection, and every song has a theme behind it; it's not just random riffs thrown together with blast beats underneath. This here is just jam packed with goodness. I would have expected some more punch from the kicks and snare, so most of the time they seem to be overshadowed by the guitars. I mean come on, that's just fucking flawless now, isn't it? You fully know what to expect going in to listen to an Origin album, but you're never left disappointed.
It's fucking majestic, and when the section at kicks in, we're all treated to the exceptional skill and incredible creativity of none other than Paul Ryan - one of the finest guitarists - and most creative, and most proficient - death metal has ever had the pleasure of witnessing.
A point soon proven, because the very moment "The Aftermath" comes roaming out of your speakers and into your ears and brain, the intensity just builds up automatically - there is nothing you can do about.
And to top if off, this album would feature the same line-up from the now classic "Informis Infinitas Inhumanitas. Sure, it sounds good and it is very entertaining, but it lacks the only thing it promises to deliver; in my opinion that's why people is liking this so much, most people hate Brutal Death, so here comes this album wearing the BDM banner, people try it and hear something bearable It's surely fast and hostile, but it's not Brutal Death Metal.
That said though, it's kind of too much at times. John Longstreth, and the intense and relentless riffing of Paul Ryan. The Beyond Within I mean, James Lee has to be one of the best vocalists around. You fully know what to expect going in to listen to an Origin album, but you're never left disappointed. It's just relentless, in every sense of the word. Though the first riff is unmistakably Origin in nature, it's also quite different, quite more unique from what they were doing before. By this time, you should feel like you've just taken a beating, and quite a serious one at that. Certainly not in the technique.
That said though, it's kind of too much at times. As a whole, this album is not butt ugly, the hooks will surely catch you, the moshing will surely take place, and the headbanging will be unstoppable.
But still, it's not over, Origin are not finished with you just yet. If extraterrestial life forms ever found their way to earth and somehow obtained a copy of this album, I'm quite positive the only thing they'd say would be a whole hearted "Jesus titty-fucking Christ!! I mean, James Lee has to be one of the best vocalists around. I don't even want to see the tab for it, I've never heard such chaos and fury unleashed in such a way that it's as sharp as a razor blade, and as precise as a hand made Swiss watch. Not in a million years, but here it is, and it just works so well. This album is absolutely essential. It's fucking majestic, and when the section at kicks in, we're all treated to the exceptional skill and incredible creativity of none other than Paul Ryan - one of the finest guitarists - and most creative, and most proficient - death metal has ever had the pleasure of witnessing.
Clocking it at 9 minutes and 32 seconds, it's the longest song Origin have ever done, and the most epic, perhaps, so I won't ruin it for anyone who has not heard it yet by writing about it here. This is not for the weak. But how could they not be, the guitars are just that damned good.
What Origin does is not Brutal, it's just plain Death with the fastest execution I've ever heard since the yearbut that's it, I didn't want to hear speedy music that's the main reason why The Berzerker exists, am I right?
And while the song just continues to pummel you, and pummel you some more, once again, BAM!
That fucking guitar riff - what the hell is that!?
