ORIGINs kommande "track-by-track"

Amerikanska death metal-bandet ORIGIN släpper nytt i juni och nedan ses ett Youtubeklipp med en första liten titt från inspelningarna, här av trummorna.

Bandet publicerar nu också en "låt för låt"-beskrivning av "Entity", de två första delarna, för spår 1-8, läser du nedan. Det ser ut att kunna bli väldigt spännande det här:

1. Expulsion of Fury
Paul Ryan (guitar, vocals): "Well, I don't how to put it other than we're back! It's just a taste of what's to come. Out of the gate at ludicrous speed with one of the most challenging ORIGIN riffs of all time, then it slams into our traditional pattern blasting. Followed by a new challenge of song composition and dynamics. The last riff is a heartbeat pulse that John throws a machine-gun blast that's just pummeling."

John Longstreth (drums): "A heartbeat with a BAAAAAAD murmur. This first half of this song is like going back in time and visiting the 'Informis Infinitas Inhumanitas' days for me. For 10 years people have been asking ORIGIN to play grooves, so we play some grooves right here. if there isn't enough on this song, what do we do?"

2. Purgatory

John Longstreth: "We play another groove!!!! But immediately bring back the warp-speed brutality. This is one of the handful of songs that we worked on while stranded in Holland for 12 days. Brings back strange memories of experimenting with a five-piece."

Paul Ryan: "I always wanted to do something really heavy and draw the listener in and then explode back out with a really quick riff. Short and sick-like!"

Mike Flores (bass, vocals): "Super-catchy followed immediately by crazy. Fun at first but then it starts to hurt."

3. Conceiving Death
John Longstreth: "The final song of the opening trilogy of 'Entity'. This song incorporates classic ORIGIN death grind, break downs, a really bizarre punch section and some black metal thrown in at the end JUST to make sure all the bases are covered."

Paul Ryan: "About as brutal as you can get on this one for me. Mike and I split up the lyrics/vocal patterns on this one. I wrote the solo w a little IRON MAIDEN harmony at the tail end for fun!

4. Swarm
John Longstreth: "Classic meat 'n' potatoes ORIGIN. Short and sweet. This is the first song Paul and I worked on in my living room with padded drums and a POD plugged into my stereo."

Paul Ryan: "In-your-face ORIGIN. Fast swarming guitars!"

5. Saligia
John Longstreth (drums): "This is one of the two epics of the album if you don't count the first three songs as a single unit (which is fine if you do). We started working on this song in New York about two years ago in the winter. Despite its density and size, this song came together with relative ease (for me)."

Paul Ryan (guitar, vocals): "My favorite track on the album and one of the most personal when I wrote it. I didn't know if we could pull it off but we did. Took about five takes at getting the solo with the right feel. For fans of WRATH OF VISHNU!!!"

6. The Descent
Paul Ryan: "An interlude to give the listener a break. Peaceful yet dark."


7. Fornever
John Longstreth: "Something about this song that just gets me every time. It was a complete pain in the ass to learn, but every time I got it right I felt like I had accomplished something special. I won't speak any further on this song. Its music so it requires no words to be spoken about it."

Paul Ryan: "Influenced by two of my favorite bands DEATH and SUFFOCATION. I was listening to a lot of 'Individual Thought Patterns' and 'Pierced From Within' when I wrote the music for this one. It took a little bit to get all the stops tight but once we did it was awesome!"

Mike Flores (bass, vocals): "Yep, the end of the song was like playing a video game. Addicted to playing it because I was so close to playing it right. Took some time to understand it."

8. Committed
John Longstreth: "By far the most experimental thing we have done to date. Simple and to the point for me until the 'numbers section,' but totally off the hook for guitars."

Paul Ryan: "One of the craziest high pitch screechy things I have ever written. It's the song that the guy who listens to death metal brings his girlfriend that doesn't listen to metal to a show and she will be like, 'Why do you listen to this? WTF?! FML!'"

Mike Flores: "This song just sounds scary! It sounds like a horror movie seen with your ears."
