Echoes of Decimation and the Old Gray Lady

The NY Times has an article about the Scion AVfest; it's a pretty meat and potatoes read, though the author does a good job of summing up doom metal for his readers ("they generally descend from Black Sabbath").  Most excitingly for this death metal fan, mighty Origin are pictured at the top of the page, though they're completely absent from the main text - so if you want an explanation as to why they're the most important American death metal band around, look elsewhere.
