Sound of Origin have been building a solid live reputation for themselves in the UK underground since 2016, pummeling often rabid audiences with their fuzzed-up, bluesy, doomy stoner riffs. 2020 looks like being the year that they finally get recognition beyond the "scene", with the release of an extraordinary new album which marks a giant leap forward for the quartet in terms of both sound and style.
These Yorkshire lads announced their arrival with July 2017's five-track Seeds of the Past EP, which, whilst serving as an admittedly decent introduction to the band as they were then, can only do so much to showcase the band they have mutated into.
It was with the addition of new vocalist, Joel Bulsara, in 2018, that Sound of Origin found the true nature of their sound; adding a depth and range to the voice of the band that has bled through into the instrumentals and allowed for a much more diverse output, spanning a huge breadth of the heavy pantheon. Bulsara's multi-octave range bears comparison with Layne Staley of Alice In Chains in particular.
Into The Vile, which appeared on the massive 2019 Doomed & Stoned in England compilation, gave one of the first representations of Sound of Origin's deeper and divergent tones, mixing in grunge sensibilities to a chugging stoner vibe.
With The All Seeing Eye - recorded and mixed by Chris Fielding of Conan at legendary Foel Studio in Wales, and mastered by James Plotkin (Sunn O))), ISIS, Pelican and Earth) - Sound of Origin are gearing up to unleash the band they have become on the world, and we're not sure you're ready for them.
