American tech-death titans ORIGIN will return with their eighth studio album titled “Chaosmos” on June 3rd on Agonia Records (Europe) and Nuclear Blast Records (rest of the world). Listen to the album’s first single “Ecophagy” below.

The long-standing outfit celebrate not only their eighth full-length installment, but also ring in their 25th year on “Chaosmos.” The same fury, brutality, and musical savvy that brought ORIGIN critical acclaim and a devout fanbase on “Unparalleled Universe” (2017), “Antithesis” (2008), and “Origin” (2000) returns with reinvigorated intensity, passion, and skill. In 2022, the group – Paul Ryan (guitars/backing vocals), Mike Flores (bass/backing vocals), John Longstreth (drums), and Jason Keyser (lead vocals) – are undeterred by unprecedented roadblocks and global uncertainty as they push forward. Indeed, ORIGIN’s new-era shock and awe mission is complete on “Chaosmos.”

“The music of Origin is a fusion of order and disorder. Our music is viewed as a meaningless assemblage of infinite perspectives,” posits guitarist/vocalist Paul Ryan with cosmic import.


ORIGIN re-tapped Kansas City-based studio guru Rob Rebeck (Unmerciful, Vänlade) to engineer, produce and mix “Chaosmos”. The production team holed up in GFM Recording Studios in Blue Springs, Missouri and Chapter 2 Recording in Lenexa, Kansas, over 14 days. Rebeck worked the mix over four days, while Colin Marsten at Menegroth in Queens, New York, mastered “Chaosmos” in two. The goal was, as always, to preserve yet expand upon ORIGIN’s savage signature, and that’s precisely what Rebeck and Marsten achieved. If “Unparalleled Universe” was the crawling insanity that is Nyarlathotep, then “Chaosmos” is the crushing tentacles of Cthulhu.

“The studio sessions are always super-high stress – unprepared madness,” Ryan says. “There is some improv magic that happens because of it, too. I feel like something great comes out of the aggression in death metal, and if you’re happy laying down tracks, maybe you shouldn’t be recording death metal. Origin bends but doesn’t break when in the studio.”

When ORIGIN broke out of the heartland in the aughts, death metal had no idea what was coming. A new era of brutality was born. Now, many years later, the outfit are ready for another round of redefinition on “Chaosmos”. They’ve blazed trails few could barely conceive, they’ve achieved more than they ever thought possible (the track “Finite” has two million YouTube views), and ORIGIN continue to innovate and enervate all. Be warned… the inevitable end is near with “Chaosmos”.

“Push play and hold on for the next ride,” says Ryan. “We hope you enjoy it as we do! Ad Astra Per Aspera. Vincit Qui Patitur.”
