Origin

Hailing from the heartland of America (Kansas, to be more specific), Origin has won over its fair share of fans with its unique brand of hyperactive, unrelenting, brutal yet technical death metal. Like many of their contemporaries, the lineup has been rather fluid, with members coming and going and with several connections to other death bands. Most recently, the band welcomed back former drummer John Longstreth.

Recent album: Abiogenesis - A Coming Into Existence, released on May 3, 2019.
