An opening chapter in Origin's musical journey and a prequel to the Origin we know today. Such could be said about "Abiogenesis - A Coming Into Existence", the band's new anniversary album.
Abiogenesis is the process by which the origin of life has arisen from non-living matter. The details of this process are still a path unknown, the transition from non-living to a living entity was not a single event, but a gradual process of increasing complexity. This process is what Origin's new album is all about.
"Abiogenesis - A Coming Into Existence" was recorded and recreated from the original 1991-1996 era that preceded Origin's official formation. The album features never-before released tracks that laid foundations to one of America's top death metal purveyors.
The tracks on "Abiogensis" were recreated to the best of his ability, by founding Origin member & mastermind Paul Ryan, who recorded all instruments himself, between 2013 and 2018.
The twelve-track album includes eighth new (previously unreleased) tracks from the pre-Origin period, spanning from the "Necrotomy" (1990-1991) to "Thee Abomination" (1992-1993) era of the band (the "Abiogenesis" part of the album). They're followed by a remastered version of Origin's first ever EP from 1998 (and first ever death metal recording to use the "gravity blast" drumming technique) as a special bonus re-release for all Origin fans & album collectors ("A Coming Into Existence" part). This EP was never available for worldwide release before.
