ORIGIN One of the most intense and technical bands of the contemporary death metal world, ORIGIN, have returned to stake their claim as the leaders of metal’s new wave of extremity with their fifth studio record entitled Entity. As expected, ORIGIN continue to churn out frantic hell paced grids of metal torment, but now further compliment the arrangements with a new found propensity for churning grooves and the hook laden approach that first reared its ugly, but accessible head on the bands 2007 offering, Antithesis.
Joining the frantic torment for a long overdue return to Europe will be PSYCROPTIC, whose latest opus ‘The Inherited Repression’ is set to be released worldwide in Feb 2012. Staying clear of trends, PSYCROPTIC incorporate many different elements of musical genres – extreme and otherwise – to capture a sound that is uniquely their own: a precise blend of brutality, intensity and groove.
Rounding out the trio is the deadly grinding bang of LENGT TCH’E. Styled by themselves as razorgrind, the four maniacs that make up LENG TCH’E are determined to shred all before them. With two more acts to be announced, this tour looks set to crush its way around Europe and prove to be one of the most devastating runs of the year.
