Guest review by
I start with saying that Origin as a whole has influences from early Katatonia. However I can't give a precise hint where exactly I hear it in the songs, though there is a whole melancholic atmosphere which reminds of early Katatonia works. Yet it differs so much because Katatonia, back in the day, sounded much more doomier, harsher and of course very original.

Don't get the hype with this band, given this many spins but it's nothing special, vocals too soft, guitars lack punch. Sure some nice melodies here and there but that's about it!

It's a gothic/doom/melodeath band, I don't think extreme or punchy is quite what they're going for.

One of the best albums in my collection, I wish Jari spent less time on side projects, there has been no new Enshine since 2015.
