ORIGIN’s Ominipresent Comes Out July 2014

The pride of Topeka, Kansas, ORIGIN, have their new one, Ominipresent, coming out this July via Agonia Records in Europe and Nuclear Blast Records in the U.S.  The song, “Manifest Desolate,” has been posted online:


The album marks the recording debut of Jason Keyser (ex-SKINLESS), who has being touring with the ORIGIN as their vocalist since the release of Entity. “ORIGIN records albums in a somewhat masochistic, chaotic, and senseless fashion,” comments drummer John Longstreth. “It’s our best trick, and we need the best guy for our best trick, so that’s why we have Jason. He’s had two years of hard road work with the band and we know he’s the guy. For those that weren’t aware, ORIGIN recorded Entity as a trio without a proper vocalist, so we are very excited to have Jason in to do what a proper vocalist is supposed to do.”
