The Press Release:
Genre defining technical death metal giants, ORIGIN, have announced tour dates for their North American headlining tour following their appearance on Summer Slaughter!

“We are excited to announce our first headlining tour in North America since 2012, in full support of our new album Omnipresent,” commented vocalist Jason Keyser. “We will be taking our signature brand of technical death metal savagery to some new cities, as well as some areas neglected by the Summer Slaughter tour, in order to ensure that everyone has a chance to experience the insanity that is a live ORIGIN performance! Joining us on this journey into bedlam will be our brothers in tech-death wizardry, Montreal’s BEYOND CREATION, and the hard thrashin’ metal maniacs in Melbourne’s KING PARROT, as well as ABOLISHMENT OF FLESH and YOUR CHANCE TO DIE on select dates. A line up like this will be a nonstop aural and visual assault from beginning to end, and our goal is to have you remembering it as the show of the summer! See you in the pit! Hail Space!”

“Super excited to present some new material on our ‘All Things Dead’ tour as well as some old favorites,” adds guitarist Paul Ryan. “Plus mix it up with some bands that ‘bring it’ live as well! It will be great to see our friends of old and meet some new faces as well! We will be omnipresent for the rest of 2014 so let’s make a party of it before all things are dead!”

More on Omnipresent: Omnipresent was recorded and mixed with longtime producer/engineer Robert Rebeck at Chapman Recording in Lenexa, KS. The album was mastered at Menegroth – The Thousand Caves with Colin Marston, and features artwork once again by Colin Marks (NEVERMORE, KATAKLYSM, EXODUS). The album marks the recording debut of Jason Keyser (ex-SKINLESS), who has being touring with the ORIGIN as their vocalist since the release of Entity. “ORIGIN records albums in a somewhat masochistic, chaotic, and senseless fashion,” comments drummer John Longstreth. “It’s our best trick, and we need the best guy for our best trick, so that’s why we have Jason. He’s had two years of hard road work with the band and we know he’s the guy. For those that weren’t aware, ORIGIN recorded Entity as a trio without a proper vocalist, so we are very excited to have Jason in to do what a proper vocalist is supposed to do.”

“Omnipresent” Track Listing:
1. All Things Dead
3. Permanence
4. Manifest Desolate
5. Absurdity of What I Am
6. Source of Icon O
7. Continuum
8. Unattainable Zero
9. Redistribution of Filth
10. Obsolescence
11. Malthusian Collapse

ORIGIN will tour North America this Summer from July 17 – August 10 on the Summer Slaughter Tour with MORBID ANGEL, DYING FETUS and THE FACELESS among others. For a complete list of dates visit this location.

One of the most intense and technical forces of the contemporary death metal world, ORIGIN are one of the leaders of metal’s recent wave of extremity. Formed in Kansas (North America) in 1997, ORIGIN is one of the top, most intense and most brutal technical death metal forces to be reckoned with. Since its inception, the group has charted twice on the Billboard Top Heatseekers (with “Antithesis” at #21 and “Entity” at #20) and emerged on countless highly-energetic shows across the world.

ORIGIN is: Jason Keyser (vocals), Paul Ryan (guitars/vocals), Mike Flores (bass/vocals), John Longstreth (drums)

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I’ve seen Origin a few times over the years and have been left needing air based on the intensity they bring to the stage, I don’t consider myself the biggest study of their body of work. The Extreme stuff is still a little bit much on me so I guess I am getting old after all. I’d be interested in checking this tour out but sadly its not hitting anywhere near our metropolis and that’s a shame since I know our area would eat this one up. I don’t have any background in the support acts and should look into them as time permits. What do you readers in the regions they will be hitting think about this one? You can let me know down in the comments and if you are one of our regions fans and furious about their bypassing us you can say something as well. I do send these narratives to their publicity team after all.
