Another technical death metal masterpiece, but flawed by production
In my opinion, Origin is one of the greatest technical death metal bands ever to emerge. Known for their technical brutality and extreme consistency, Origin knows how to deliver the goods. On their latest offering, Unparalleled Universe, Origin once again demonstrate their need for speed, with the occasional mid-paced track that is just as pummeling. Unfortunately, the production is terrible. The sound is muddy, the volume is really low and it just doesn't compare to 2014's Omnipresent, or even their 2008 masterpiece, Antithesis. If it weren't for the production, this would be an album of the year contender for me. Still a great album though!
