Antropofagus play complex, technical and brutal death metal, and first entered the scene in the late 90s, heavily inspired by bands such as Suffocation, Cannibal Corpse and Deeds Of Flesh. Until the unveiling of ‘Origin’, ‘No Waste Of Flesh’ (1999), ‘Architecture of Lust’ (2012) and ‘MORTE’ (2017) remained the only albums in his name, although they were formed there. almost a quarter of a century ago. Besides said Davide Billia on drums, the album features new vocalist Paolo Chiti, longtime guitarist and co-founder Francesco ‘Meatgrinder’ Montesanti and bassist Jacopo Rossi (Dark Lunacy).
Francesco Montesanti considers “Origin” to be the band’s most complete album to date. “I’m really satisfied with the entire work; from the structure of the album to the production, which was organized by Davide Billia at MK2 studios. Although the pandemic has caused physical limitations, it has also given us time to work at our own pace, and by arranging the tracks, we reached a level far beyond anything we’ve done before. I’m really glad we managed to write this album with the four of us coming from different directions, but working together in a very united way. You can hear it in every track. Each of us played an important role during the production and post-production phases and we put our heart and soul into it. The result is a very fast album that never loses its momentum. and all the illustrations were created by Stefano Mattioni “Viron 2.0″ We have started working again with computer graphics and we think this will be our best e cover to date, reflecting a band that is modern but never compromises the fundamentals of true Death Metal.”
Beginning vocalist and lyricist Paolo Chiti adds: “I was inspired by many different sources for the lyrics on this album. From Lovecraft’s ubiquitous Necronomicon, through Sumerian demonology, Egyptian mythology and classic movies like The Exorcist or Hellraiser to more modern ones like The Void. , or the series Stranger Things. Wherever I found darkness, I fed off that darkness for my lyrics and I’m very pleased with the results. I can’t wait to share the new material with the world! I am particularly proud of my vocal performance. This is the first record I’ve recorded with the band and I hope my vocal style will appeal to old school Antropofagus fans and maybe even help us get some new ones. When Origin comes out, I’ll be thrilled if people like it even half as much as I do!”
