Origin Parts Ways With Vocalist

Kansas metal band Origin has issued the following update:

"Origin and Extreme Management Group, Inc. are proud to announce the first set of dates for Origin's 2010 spring/summer tour campaign. Origin will be visiting Australia and New Zealand for the first time ever and will also be returning to Europe. We can not wait to return to our European friends and fans, and look forward to meeting new people in Australia and New Zealand."

"As it's been speculated elsewhere, James Lee is no longer a part or Origin. After 9 plus years with the band, it unfortunately came time for Lee and Origin to part ways."

"On these tours, please welcome to the stage Mica (Maniac) Meneke (Sol Asunder, Ontogeny, The Faceless, Legion Victorious) on vocals. We are confident that Origin will raise the bar in 2010. We have a few surprises in store, so get ready."

“Our buddy Mica from the band Ontogeny will be covering vocal duties on our upcoming tour with Nile. From there, you’ll just have to wait and see what we have in store!

We’re also very pleased to announce that Navene Koperwies has picked up drum duties in The Faceless. He’s really brought the band to a whole new level and we’re stoked to be finishing the writing on our new album with him at the current moment!”

Sol Asunder Discuss New Concept Album

San Francisco melodic death metallers, Sol Asunder, issue the following update regarding their upcoming album on their Myspace page:
"MECHANIZE is a concept album built on themes of technology fused with life. The songs all differ from each other, yet conduct an unremitting style of rhythm and melody. As the songs were written, a shape became more evident to the style and we ran with it."

"Lyrics for this album became a concept of assimilating machinery and nature. Each song is its' own examination of this convergence. The song, "Demodulated" [listen here], suggests words of warning from a stagnant voice only heard encoded within a broken radio signal. The themes are programmed throughout the album, yet left illusive and dormant for the listener to conclude. "

"The album has a list of twelve tracks at least so far. Updates are on the way so keep posted, but for now we hope you enjoy "Demodulated!""

Sol Asunder Announce Details About Upcoming Album

California based melodic death metal band, Sol Asunder, announce details about their upcoming new album entitled ‘Horribly Human’.

Chazz, guitarist, says the album is “derived of some old songs revised in the studio, and some new songs…” Chazz mentions a few guest artists will be on the album “We got Juan Ortega of ‘VILE’ doing guest backing vocals on ‘Hate Fueled Anger’ and Max Seeman of ‘ANOMALOUS’ doing a guitar solo on ‘Redeemer.’ Having Juan on the album was a big thing for us, this being our first full length released, and doing it all ourselves, it really made us feel even more like this is a real project that will be well received. Juan really liked how the album turned out, and was excited to be a part of it. Max has been a long time friend of the band. His band, ANOMALOUS, has influenced Sol Asunder since the band started. We have always wanted to work with him on something, and he was more then willing to shred on Horribly Human.” Chazz talks about the new songs on the record, “the new songs are a matured sound for us…We have been getting a lot more musical with our riffs, which leaves lots of room for Mica [vocals] to make more brutal and fierce.”

‘Horribly Human’ Track listing:
1. Beneath The Surface
2. Element
3. The Addict
4. Hate Fueled Anger
5. Malformation
6. Sorrow Sets The Sun
7. Horribly Human
8. Enter Mission
9. Tragic
10. Redeemer
11. Everlost

‘Horribly Human’ is set to be released in August 2006

Sol Asunder's myspace page contains a video of a demo version Hate Fueled Anger, which will appear on the upcomming album.
