An opening chapter in ORIGIN's musical journey and a prequel to the ORIGIN we know today...
"Abiogenesis - A Coming Into Existence" enthält Material aus den Jahren 1991-1996, zu hören sind auch bisher unveröffentlichte Titel. Gründer Paul Ryan hat versucht das Beste aus dem Ausgangsmaterial herauszuholen um den Originfans einen guten Einblick zu verschaffen wie alles begann.
Auf dem Album befinden sich acht zuvor unveröffentlichte Titel aus der pre-ORIGIN Phase, angefangen bei "Necrotomy" (1990-1991) bis zu "Thee Abomination" (1992-1993). Dazu noch eine remasterte Version der ersten ORIGIN EP von 1998 die zuvor nicht weltweit erhältlich war.
Paul kommentiert: "Over the years people have asked me how Origin just came to be as a band so ferocious virtually out of nowhere. This is a small summary of the Origins of Origin. Basically, I spent a lot of my youth at shows at the outhouse practicsng garage grinding, basement blasting & shed shredding anywhere I️ could, composing as what my father would call 'Infernal Racket' as I was very passionate about death metal. That's all I ever wanted to do. A lot of missed opportunities as we just couldn't put it together into making a album (some music was meant to be underground), so these tracks are some of my earliest creations from the Necrotomy (1990-1991) & Thee Abomination (1992-1993) period".
"This is by no means the current direction of the band Origin, but simply music that is the Origins of Origin. I did to the best of my ability to recreate the instrumentation of all the former members & the guys who I played this music with blended into each track (& yes there was a lot of editing!!!!). Im officially retired from recording drums ever again!".
Paul ergänzt das es damals nicht so einfach war: "Thanks to these guys who helped me create these songs/style. I️ couldnt have done this without you and Origin would have never been: Dean Jones, Drew Bray, Mark Manning, Jaime Serrano, Steve Bradley, Jerry Bradley, George Fluke, Clinton Appelhanz, Jeremy Turner, Judd Mason and Payam Pourmirza".
"Abiogenesis" wurde vom heftigsten Stoff den Metal Blade, Relativity, Earache, Combat, Roadrunner & Relapse Records damals bieten konnten beeinflusst, ebenso streuten noch Truppen aus dem lokalen Umfeld von Kansas und seinen Nachbarstaaten wie z.B. Excessive Strain, Psychosis, The Socio Pathetic's, Aehraid, Device Public Assassian, Nasferatu etc. mit rein. Paul erläutert: "These Bands got very little recognition in the national spotlight but had a huge influence on me for their extremity & talent that I witnessed live. They pushed me to continue what I heard into my own music. I'd personally like to thank those who were there from the early days, those who have joined along my death metal soundtrack & those who are just discovering this music now!".
