ORIGIN are among the leaders of metal's recent wave of extremity. Formed in Kansas (North America) in 1997, the group is considered to be one of the top, most intense and most brutal technical death metal forces to be reckoned with. Their latest offering "Omnipresent" is no exception. "A culmination of 15 years of technical death metal brutality that transcends definition" - states the band. And continues: "From light speed to absolute zero, it is a journey to the farthest reaches of the universe, to the darkest nether of the mind".
Touring in support of "Omnipresnt" is a technical metal feast, which has been proven during the band's most recent co-headlining shows across North America, with extreme metal heroes Krisiun. The upcoming Euro tour will be ORIGIN's second over the course of two years. In 2014 the band took over the continent with Aborted, Miasmal and Exhumed. Up till now, ORIGIN's impressive touring resume includes both Americas, Asia, Australia and Europe.
