The Press Release:
Genre defining technical death metal giants ORIGIN are proud to announce Occupation Domination 2020 tour. The 30-date trek kicks-off on March 12th at The Riot Room in Kansas and will make stops in Toronto, New York and Austin before concluding on April 11th at Cabooze in Minneapolis. Joining the band on their headlining tour are BENEATH THE MASSACRE, DEFEATED SANITY, WAKE (Mar 27 to Apr 11) and special guests!

Jason Keyser comments, “It has been 8 long years since ORIGIN brought the first incarnation of ‘Occupation Domination’ to North America, and we have been patiently waiting for right time to resurface with the angriest, grimiest, most brutal tour of the year. Thankfully the stars are right and 2020 brings ORIGIN’s first headlining run in three years, and along with us in the return of Quebecois death metal legends BENEATH THE MASSACRE, purveyors of German brutality DEFEATED SANITY, and the utter sludge filth that is Calgary’s WAKE. No advertising blimps, no overblown onstage Viking ship production, no pillow-fights, no fucking gimmicks. Just a collection of the single most intense live acts you will ever see. These are truly the kings of the underground. Do not miss ‘Occupation Domination” this March/April! Hail Space!”

ORIGIN will be touring in support of Unparalleled Universe which was recorded and mixed by longtime producer/engineer Robert Rebeck at Chapman Recording in Lenexa, KS. Mastering was handled by Colin Marston at Menegroth – The Thousand Caves. Watch the music video for “Infinitesimal To The Infinite” here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=O5mRx_IBKPA

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though its too early for me to know if I will be in attendance at this one, it sure sounds like an exciting run. Origin is truly a crushing experience on the stage and I highly recommend them if you like your bands super duper heavy. I will say that I don’t think the shaming of how other bands do things required any shaming but that’s just me. Obviously the Viking ship is Amon Amarth and as you remember this killer group just recently headlined a sold-out Hammerstein Ballroom. I’d leave stuff like that out but again that’s just me. So as I close this announcement up and wrangle up my next article I wonder what you fine readers think about the news. Chime in down below in the comments section and I will be back soon with more stuff because that is how this works. See you then.
