— NEW ANNIVERSARY ALBUM! —
Origin will return with a new anniversary album “Abiogenesis – A Coming Into Existence” on May 3rd worldwide via Agonia Records.
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.
Such could be said about “Abiogenesis – A Coming Into Existence”. It’s the opening chapter in Origin’s musical journey and a prequel to the Origin we know today.
The album was recorded and recreated from the original 1991-1996 era that preceded Origin’s official formation. It features never-before released tracks that laid foundations to the band’s existence.
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, at Hyde Street Studios in San Fransisco (Ca). Robert Rebeck mixed & mastered the album.
“A Coming Into Existence” EP (Origin’s first official recording from 1998, never available for worldwide release before) has been added to the album as a special bonus re-release for all Origin fans & album collectors. The EP was remastered by Robert Rebeck.
Paul Ryan commented: “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. A lot of missed opportunities as we just couldn’t put it together into making a album, so these tracks are some of the earliest creations”.
