The genre has become cluttered, only leaving room for a few bands to be truly original. The section at 2: When Origin chose to lower the pace or play more rhythmically varied parts they shine and memorable moments even occur in the chaos of ultra fast technical riffing, growling vocals, and blasting drums tracks like "The Aftermath", "Wrath of Vishnu" and the title track stand out as some of the highlights.
It just never ends! You fully know what to expect going in to listen to an Origin album, but you're never left disappointed. I hope the band will develop that part of their sound further on subsequent releases.
May 18th, 52 replies Release Date: After being pretty excited about buying Antithesis, I popped it in my car and was absolutely bombarded by the first track "The Aftermath".
This is another sign that this band is trying way too hard to be technical and goes back to my claim about the music coming out as nothing more than noise at times. While I did find the album somewhat interesting and some of the songs quite good, there was never a moment where I though "Man, this crap is amazing!
Sure, they're showing off here, but who gives a shit? The lyrical speed fits the music perfectly but makes it very unclear as to what he is singing or growling about. They manage to mix it up so well and keep everything interesting throughout the whole experience of having your head kicked in.
Just that sentence alone should let you know that this album is not for the weak. Origin have took their trademark sound, and given it a few hundred more horsepower and the end result will make every nerve in your body come back to life.
He's backed by Jeremy Turner, another outstanding guitar player, who should be well known by his work with Unmerciful. Now, to me, this is something they should have really worked out in the studio.
My slight issue with the growling vocals aside "Antithesis" is overall a very impressive album. The whole thing is a bit cold and clinical but the playing style suits the sci-fi themed lyrics and image of the band. After being pretty excited about buying Antithesis, I popped it in my car and was absolutely bombarded by the first track "The Aftermath".
They have their sound set in stone, and what a sound it is!
Easily one of the finest songs on the album, it kicks its way into life with a killer intro, followed by James' insane vocals. The true progression in ORIGIN's sound can be heard in the way the pair manage to interject bits of melody within the maelstrom.
There is no doubt that Origin are one of the fastest playing and most innovative acts when it comes to brutal technical death metal.
So while I still think the band could focus a bit more on variation instead of monotone brutality, the album deserves a 3. After the epicness, we are greeted by yet another fantastic riff, and a spectacular guitar solo.
After the epicness, we are greeted by yet another fantastic riff, and a spectacular guitar solo. 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.
But then at 1: It was an album that I, for one, was unsure they could top. The sound production which is otherwise professional and generally well sounding unfortunately lacks a bit of dynamic and the tracks have a tendency to sound a bit too much the same as a consequence of that.
It's not for the posers.

Yeah that's right, take that section at 1: Variation is not the strength of the album though. And if you are, then there is something wrong with you.
It's just the mix which kind of sucks."Antithesis" is the 4th full-length studio album by US death metal act Origin. The album was released through Relapse Records in April It´s the successor to "Echoes of Decimation" from and features a couple of lineup changes since the predecessor.
Origin's album, Antithesis, was a huge success among the underground extreme metal fans, inspiring many others to pick up this style of brutal technical death metal.
I went into this album expecting it to be another wank-fest, and that thought ended around the middle of the first song. Origin’s last album, Echoes of Decimation was a mess of sweeping arpeggios but also had a knack for creating some brutal death metal.
Antithesis is not the hugest step up from their previous album but rather improves and tightens up all the loose bolts that put Echoes of. Aug 18, · BANDS THAT SHOULD'VE BEEN BIGGER: Winds Of Plague, ABACABB, Motion City Soundtrack, Cynic - Duration: The Punk Rock MBA 31, views.
