Entity, the new album from US technical death metallers Origin, will be released on June 7th in North America and June 10th in Europe through Nuclear Blast Records.

The album was recorded at Chapman Recording Studios in Lenexa, KS with longtime engineer and friend Robert Rebeck.

Drummer John Longstrength commented on the visual aspect of their forthcoming release: "As you can see, we're getting closer and closer to having a new album available for you. This has been a project that has been a long time in the making with all the unexpected twists and turns that come with creating an album and we are almost there. So, this is the new album cover! Designed by the band and executed flawlessly by artist extraordinaire, Colin Marks. As you can see, this time there's no aliens, no scary faces, no silly comic book imagery, no bullshit. It's back to basics for the people that don't fall for, or appreciate bullshit trends that currently compromise the validity of this art. Let this album cover with its grey, dead, coldness reflect our disdain for the misconception that Origin is represented by a giant, planet eating, scary face that's aimlessly roaming the cosmos like an idiot. Like the cover, the music on this album is stone, it's cold, it's serious, it's desolate, it's very angry, it's the band unified, and working overtime to create what we feel will be the finest 45 min Origin has created yet. This album is its own bitter Entity."

Commented artist Colin Marks: "It's been a real pleasure collaborating with the Origin guys on the artwork for Entity. From the beginning John had a very specific vision of how this record should look and I tried to interpret that as accurately as possible. The whole look of the album, the way I see it, is a suffocating vision of absolute solitude and isolation, with huge barren otherworldly landscapes. It's a simple concept but it works well and hopefully reflects the bleak tones and heaviness of the new songs."

Longstrength's a champ, and I'm stoked out of my mind! This year's death metal potential is off the charts.
