Last After the phenomenal "Echoes of Decimation" released ineveryone was eager to get a new slab of ultra awesome metal in the form which in only Origin can deliver. And to top if off, this album would feature the same line-up from the now classic "Informis Infinitas Inhumanitas.
May 30th, replies Release Date: The Tech Death genre has really gained some legitimate ground over the last few years, spotlighting certain very technical bands such as Necrophagist, Decapitated and Psycroptic.
While Tech Death began with some very familiar Death Metal bands such as Suffocation, its rare that those bands are considered Tech Death these days. As a matter of fact, the current Tech Death scene has turned into to nothing more than a genre that many Antithesis origin review go to just to show how crazy and ridiculous their music can get.
The genre has become cluttered, only leaving room for a few bands to be truly original. Origin is one of the bands I expected to be somewhat original and different, especially because of all the good things I had heard about the band.
Now, before I truly get into this review, I want everyone to realize that I am a true sucker for ridiculous technicality in Metal. However, I do not like it when the depth of the music suffers because of the focus on technicality. Bands such as Dream Theater have proven that music can be extremely technical and still have plenty of depth.
After being pretty excited about buying Antithesis, I popped it in my car and was absolutely bombarded by the first track "The Aftermath". After hearing this track, I was more than ready for the rest of the album.
However, after listening to the second song I realized that not much had changed from the first track. While all of this is very impressive to hear, it ends up coming off extremely boring after hearing the same thing over and over and over again. Building the listener up is something many modern Metal bands do.
However, because of the bands focus on technicality, the sound begins to become quite familiar and overused. Also, because the whole band seems to be trying to out do each other when it comes to their ridiculous technical abilities, it all runs together and makes the music sound cluttered and Another problem I found here is that the vocalist sometimes is drowned out by the instruments.
Now, to me, this is something they should have really worked out in the studio. A vocalist should never be drowned out by the instruments. This is another sign that this band is trying way too hard to be technical and goes back to my claim about the music coming out as nothing more than noise at times.
Now, I know I have bashed the album quite a bit, but there are some things I do like about the album. While I have complained about the technicality and overuse of it, it all still remains quite impressive in the end and there are songs on this album that really get me pumped.
The rest of the album, however, seems to just sound like filler to me, and this is mainly because it all starts sounding the same after about the 2nd or 3rd track. I really wanted to love this album, but I just could not get into it.
It is just average. There is just nothing here that really sets these guys apart from many of the average Tech Death bands that are cluttering the already congested genre. While I did find the album somewhat interesting and some of the songs quite good, there was never a moment where I though "Man, this crap is amazing!Origin - Antithesis - ashio-midori.com Music.
From The Community. Amazon Try Prime CDs & Vinyl. Go Search Now, as for this release I have a two part review. After hearing Origin's latest release, Entity, I was impressed. Entity is their best work yet. So I decided to give Antithesis a try.
After all, the sample clips sounded pretty good/5(26). This post is part of a series on rhetoric and rhetorical devices. For other posts in the series, please click this link. Device: Antithesis Origin: From the Greek ἀντί (anti) meaning "against" and θέσις (thesis) meaning "position".
In plain English: Contrasting two different (often opposite) ideas in the same sentence or in two consecutive sentences. Let it be known that "Antithesis" isn't really, well, an "antithesis" per say, because it doesn't mark a drastic change of sound or direction for Origin.
What it certainly does do, though, is deliver on the promise of all of their previous releases. Origin's album, Antithesis, was a huge success among the underground extreme metal fans, inspiring many others to pick up this style of brutal technical death metal.

|ORIGIN Antithesis reviews||By pushing themselves beyond the limits, each release has seen the band become more punishing and technically proficient in their delivery. With the utter devastation and inhuman speed heard on their offering, "Echoes Of Decimation", ORIGIN proved that they could not only play faster and heavier than almost anyone on the block, but they could do so within the confines of some very well-written tunes.|
