Becoming The Archetype

Physics Of Fire

Solid State 84322

Released on May 8, 2007


Becoming The Archetype is back to pulverize the senses of metal fanatics worldwide and to, as the saying goes, “Bang The Head That Does Not Bang.” After two long years on the road promoting their jaw-dropping debut, Terminate Damnation, the Atlanta based progressive death metal band has crafted what will prove to be their defining work: the blistering sophomore album, “The Physics of Fire.” Crafted with producer Andres Magnusson (Black Dahlia Murder, The Agony Scene, Scarlet) at the helm, “The Physics of Fire” further explores the band's more progressive side, while delivering all of the ferocity their fans have come to expect. On the heels of Demon Hunter’s “Undying” tour and a European jaunt with The Chariot, Becoming The Archetype and their "The Physics of Fire" is set to light the metal world ablaze with its thundering power.

I'll attack the vocals first: The general scream/growl gets almsot boring, there is no variety in vocals like there was in TD. Its all the same pitch, nearly. And the clean vocals are pretty bad, he's singing the Extol style, but it's not nearly as good. I think the singing ruins more songs than it makes. Not that the style of them sucks, i think its great that they are doing something different, but the vibrato gets annoying, and they just don't fit usually.

Secondly, the lead guitar: I am still not impressed with originality on lead. Sure, its insane fast, but its the same thing over and over again throughout the CD. That same gradual, wannabe dramatic, lightning fast solos, with a terrible tone. you can barely tell the difference between the solos, and half of the time the temp is slowed down to 0 when the solos come!

Honestly, the songs aren't that different from each other, its not repetative, but, its just "safe" from beginning to end.

The rythm guitar is definetly top notch, awesome stuff.

Lyrics are awesome.

With that being said, it doesn't live up to TD in several ways, but its still an album far out of the league of nearly every other death metal band i've heard. Its obviously incredible stuff with a lot of talent, and this is one of the greatest metal bands i've heard. Maybe I'm just not happy with the arrival of Alex, I liked the old guitarist's style a lot more.

I'm not against change, I think progressing is a huge part of being a band, but this progression went the wrong way for me.

It's quite polished.

Terminate Damnation was so versatile, there is a 4 part song ballad, there is a classical instrumental, they have a freaken blues solo in the middle of an extremely agressive death metal song! The Physics Of Fire just doesn't live up to TD in my opinion, though a lot of people think this is a lot better.

3/5. If you like BTA, get it, if you are going to get your first BTA album, get TD.

Pretty mediocore metalcore band. They heavy parts are really good at sometimes but they do have some fucking stupid clean vocals, i wouldn't call them melodic emo sounding clean vocals but more the nu metal bullshit style. Anyways, The christian metal crowd will eat this shit up like it's the bread of christ.
