2013 was a very solid year for technical music. However, that was yesteryear, and here at TDM.com we are already looking for new ways to scramble our brains, mentally and physically, in 2014. Here are some of the records I am most looking forward to mathing my face off with in the first quarter:
Origin – Omnipresent [Date TBA, Nuclear Blast Records]
Although 2012’s Entity didn’t garner the pangalactic praise of 2009’s Antithesis, the re-fortified quartet shows no sign of hanging up their brooms or powershredders. At the time of posting, Origin had just finished recording the new album. No doubt the over-the-top technicality will cause us to stare into the abyss and reflect on the human condition, and its insignificance, as it has in years past.
