|Christian Progressive Death Metal
Brilliant through and through, Dichotomy
is the third (and in my opinion, best) release from this Atlanta based band. Completely shattering the image that Christian Metal bands have to sound (or even look) like Stryper
, BTA churns out a release that is both beautiful and brutal.
With a unique style and sound (somewhat similar to Between The Buried And Me
) this album was produced by the genius Devin Townsend
and also features his guest vocals as well as those of Demon Hunter
's front man, Ryan Clark. The songs are a solid and intense ride through melodic and extreme elements of music. Lyrically it is based upon C.S. Lewis' That Hideous Strength
and focuses on the biology vs technology, man vs machine concept.
This album is one great song after another but highlights would include "Mountain of Souls", "Dichotomy", "Artificial Immortality", and their take on the traditional hymn "How Great Thou Art".Read review ››
