Bio:

For 20 years, Origin has engaged a full-blown sensory assault of tight, taut, and technical death metal amplified by flashes of grindcore and groove. However, 2017’s Unparalleled Universe [Nuclear Blast] sees the quartet—Paul Ryan [guitar, vocals], John Longstreth [drums], Mike Flores [bass, vocals], and Jason Keyser [vocals]—strengthens that blueprint with a handful of surprises…“It feels like an Origin album, but it’s unparalleled to what you might expect if you haven’t heard us for 10 or 15 years,” says Ryan. “To me, it’s a true reflection of ourselves. I compare it to an action movie. Our earlier material is filled with action from beginning to end. Now, the idea is to add a little more depth and dynamics. You could say there are some twists in the plot musically.”The band began compiling ideas for what would become Unparalleled Universe while touring in support of their 2014 sixth offering, Omnipresent. Along the way, the record snatched their highest position on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart, bowing in the Top 10. Meanwhile, it garnered acclaim from No Clean Singing and Metalsucks, building on a string of accolades that includes Ryan landing on Decibel’s “Top 20 Death Metal Guitarists of All-Time” list during 2008’s Antithesis, as well as that album’s finite amassing 1.6 million YouTube views, and successful tours with everyone from Hate Eternal and Cryptopsy to Decapitated and Candiria over the years. They’ve also shined on the Summer Slaughter Tour in 2009 & 2014. On the road with Belphegor last year, the members debuted a skeleton of the first single “Accident and Error” in front of packed crowds.“We would ask the audience to give us title ideas, but we could never discern what they were actually saying” laughs Ryan. “Riffs typically start on tour, and I keep them in my back pocket. That’s the way it is.”During January 2017, Ryan headed to Chapman Studios in Kansas City, KS to record alongside longtime collaborator and engineer Rob Rebeck [Tech N9ne]. In under a month, they emerged with the ten songs comprising Unparalleled Universe and an expanded sonic palette. “Invariance Under Transformation” tempers a trudging, doom-y groove with a dark hiss and brutal stomp and the dynamic “Cascading Failures and Diminishing Returns” bludgeons and burns, while “Accident And Error” barrels ahead on a double bass air raid with smart bomb precise sweeping arpeggios.“There are different parts,” he goes on. “The slower moments feature a couple of classic circle pit speed metal riffs like on ‘Accident and Error.’ Then, ‘Invariance Under Transformation’ is the slowest tempo we’ve ever done. It’s new territory. As musicians, we all appreciate various things, and we’re trying to bring out unpredictable moods. We wanted to stir the pot a little.”The opener “Infinitesimal To The Infinite” gallops forward on a steamrolling rush of riffage as Keyser’s screams take hold. “It retains the original Origin feel,” adds Ryan. “We try to come out of the gate like that.”Rounding out Unparalleled Universe, the group heads south of the border via a murderous and malevolent cover of Brujeria’s “Revolución.”“One of Brujeria’s albums always gets played on just about every tour we’re on,” he goes on. “The song meant something at the time right now—especially with everything going on politically. We put a lot of effort in to get the pronunciation right. It came out well for a bunch of gringos!”Ultimately, Unparalleled Universe begins another era for Origin. “In the end, we’re still writing death metal songs, but we’re adding new dimensions,” he leaves off. “We’re still Origin.”

Album:

Unparalleled Universe (Nuclear Blast) marks the seventh studio album from death metal giants Origin. The record is an instrumental power house of blasting metallic and technical chaos. Unparalleled Universe takes the band’s material to new heights, building off their blistering speed to introduce new chemistry in sound and style. In Unparalleled Universe, Origin introduce a work that continues to honor their superb skills in creating unique and devastating music.The record has a lot going for it in all its instrumental components. The drumming reaches insane speeds, while the guitar finds itself shifting all over the place in tempo and style. Unparalleled Universe does a solid job of keeping the energy at a constant grind and heft, while not having any of the songs blend into one another. However, listeners will immediately pick up on the immense use of blast beats, making it for the one glaring element on the album. Thankfully there is plenty of chemistry in the drumming that aids in creating an enjoyable flow in each track.There’s no hesitation in the opener “Infinitesimal To The Infinite” as the blast beats fire off. As vocals rage forward, the guitar goes from moments of vibrant inflections, to sinister notation that drive with hysteria. “Cascading Failures, Diminishing Returns” tones down its pace ever so slightly in the beginning, building up to a shredding whirlwind of hell. It is at the halfway point in the track where the drumming goes full bonkers in anger, the guitar taking on an evil psychedelic twist in its ramping anxiety. The material then dives into a gentle and eerie atmosphere where the instrumentals slowly begin to disappear. This leads into “Mithridatic”, a song that chops up its pace into a patchwork of sounds. The pummeling drive of death metal guitar and clashing cymbals turns into a sonic pattern that sounds like a mix of grinding gears.“Invariance Under Transformation” is the first time that the band takes on a slower approach to one of their songs. Blast beats still ever-present, the guitar progression steadies itself with a consistent chugging, tossing in brief moments of brightness in tone. The drums at times will loosen themselves up into a roll, with the guitar taking on a spooky high pitch rhythm towards the end. The standout track of the record is easily “Unequivocal”, containing the most diversity in its sound. It presents itself with an aura of looming brutality, orchestrated through terrific guitar work that shifts tempos to match each new direction the song takes. One moment the track is balls to the wall hectic and crushing, to then taking a step back and building up tension with clashing drums and an epic guitar solo.Unparalleled Universe is an absolute treat for the world of death metal. While certain elements may become a little too present within the work, it never takes away from the overall chemistry that is displayed. Origin have really outdone themselves in creating an album that shows off just how death metal is able to push its boundaries in technicality. Through stellar instrumentation that combines various uses of sound to play with structure, Origin have crafted a terrific work that captures brutality and excitement.
