Review: Becoming The Archetype – Dichotomy [2008]

amazon-becoming-the-archtypeChristian metal troupe Becoming the Archetype and producer Devin Townsend have made a monstrous modern metal album called DICHOTOMY. This 10-track affair packs gargantuan riffage, pummeling bass lines, grandiose keyboards, and gruff vocals into every track, but isn’t afraid to wield an acoustic for some sweet classic metal interludes (“St. Anne’s Lullaby,” “How Great Thou Art”) or go Pink Floyd with a female singer/piano combo (“Deep Heaven”). Teetering between the progressive and melodeath end of the spectrum, fans of In Flames and Strapping Young Lad will definitely want to get their hands on this one. -Mike SOS
