Origin is an American technical death metal band from Topeka, Kansas, founded in 1998.[1] They have been recognized by music critics[2][3] and metal fans[4] alike for combining a harsh sound with a high level of technical skill.

Origin's music is characterized by almost exclusive use of several specific, difficult playing techniques: blast beats on the drum kit,[5] multiple death growled vocals,[5][6] and arpeggios and sweep picking on both the guitars and the bass guitar.[4] Their songs often have uneven, shifting time signatures.[5] In spite of their lack of an official website,[7] in 2008 they scored a minor American hit with the release of their fourth studio album, Antithesis.[8][9]
