|Formed in the summer of '99 Becoming The Archetype is an experienced band with a uniquely mature sound and uncompromising passion for their beliefs. Their name says it all. According to Genesis 1:26, "God said, 'Let us make man in our image'". Since Jesus was the only person to ever live a sinless life, He is the ultimate archetype (or original design) of humanity. As a result, the life of a Christ follower is all about being conformed to the image of God or in other words; becoming the archetype. Hailing from Atlanta Georgia‚ Solid State Records' newest blood bring their relentless‚ no-frills metal to the masses on August 30th‚ 2005. Their debut album‚ ''Terminate Damnation'' is sure to make you an instant believer. Hasn't it been too long since you've had guitar solos‚ blast beats and grind vocals in your metal? Blending elements of progressive metal‚ thrash‚ hardcore‚ and death metal‚ Becoming The Archetype is a breath of fresh air in a scene often ruled by watered down‚ mediocre bands cut from the same ''metal-core'' mold. No matter where they go they continue to prove that they have everything it takes to be the future of the metal/hardcore industry. Don't be late on this boat. This is the metal band to keep your eyes on.
