Becoming The Archetype

Christian rockers bringing a progressive sound and compassionate message to full-on death metal, Atlanta-based Becoming the Archetype were founded in 1999 under the name the Remnant. After recording a self-released album as the Remnant, the group retooled its sound and re-emerged as Becoming the Archetype, a name that references Jesus Christ as the only man who lived without sin, standing as the ideal model for mankind. In late 2004, the band signed with Solid State Records, a metal-oriented subsidiary of Tooth and Nail, and the group -- Jason Wisdom on bass and vocals, Sean Cunningham and Jon Star on guitars, Seth Hecox on guitar and keyboards, and Brent Duckett on drums -- went into the studio to record their first album as Becoming the Archetype, Terminate Damnation, which was released in the summer of 2005. The band toured extensively in support of the release, though Becoming the Archetype would go through some changes before they would enter the studio again. Star left the band to pursue a career as a recording engineer in 2006, and Alex Kenis, whose band Aletheian had toured with Becoming the Archetype, was recruited to join the group; in addition to playing guitar, Kenis also sings with BTA, with his melodic vocal style contrasting with Wisdom's gruff bark. A few months later, Cunningham resigned from the group, and Becoming the Archetype opted to work as a four-piece rather than replace him. BTA's second album, The Physics of Fire, was released by Solid State in May 2007. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

I think its funny how I discover this band on accident and now I absolutely love them. Its hard to find a band that hasn't given in to society with popularity and remained true to message and style as well.

Haha no one has commented back
yea Jason Wisdom is my Bible teacher now haha.
Why doesn't Pandora have Celestial Completion!! ! ? ? ? ?
Life is tough without Wisdoms vocals. Not bad just not as good
Not just death metal, Christianity is involved in black metal and grindcore

I'm over 40 and I Pray I enjoy this band just as much when I'm over 60

ok, i knew there was Christian Metalcore, but i didnt know there was such thing as Christian death metal.... :D
One of the best bands!
@hoshiko.ada m
Not sure I'd call Red metal, but Impending Doom is another great one. Once you get past their '09 and '10 releases
the synths in Dichotomy>>>
I love becoming the archetype, but not their newest album
Does anypony else notice that al least two songs from Dichotomy are in direct referrence to C.S. Lewis's Perelandra? Deep Heaven, and Ransom. I about fell over with glee and *squee*ing when I realised this.
Wow, this band has some awesome music! Instant fave!
no fall too far, so awesome, brutal metaL
Daemonstrefa l l , what about Oh' sleeper, and Demon Hunter and Red?

They are the King's of Heaven's Metal--sayin g a lot, but it's true. I love how they incorporate the sounds of traditional American & European death metal. HOW GREAT THOU ART IN METAL?!?!? BRING IT! SATAN'S GETTING HIS BUTT WHOOPED! Should be played in every church.
Love this band but I miss the old lineup
Takes some talent to worship and ago hard like these guys can one of my for sure favorites!
Great group. One of the best
Just in my own opinion, there are very few really good Christian bands out there. BTA is so amazing. I'm glad they're still going. Just awesomeness. ^^
Ransom is an amazing song :o
two new albums
My FAVORITE of the newer Christian metal bands. The only one I genuinely want to see live.
I Am is a great album. It's more straitforwar d metal than previous releases. Much less progressive, which will piss off many old fans. A new vocalist and bassist doesn;t bother me. Sometimes I prefer just a good solid and talented metal album to the experimental progressive thing. I like most of their work, but I like I Am too. (But for different reasons)
no they didnt break up they came out with a new album in 2011
