Atlanta, Georgia-based metallers BECOMING THE ARCHETYPE will release their fourth album, "Celestial Completion", on March 29 via Solid State Records. The CD was produced by Matt Goldman (UNDEROATH, THE CHARIOT, COPELAND) and contains 11 tracks.
In a recent interview with AOL's Noisecreep, BECOMING THE ARCHETYPE guitarist Seth Hecox promised that the new CD would feature a bunch of surprises. "We've incorporated more things than a person can imagine on this record," he said. "Of course the album is still heavy, but other than that, the sound is stretched as much as possible."
He added, "We have Dennis Culp of FIVE IRON FRENZY playing trombone on a ska section of track nine. We [also] have an epic Danny Elfman intro complete with operatic soprano vocals and four-part harmony. We have a track of just sitar and tambura and Tablas — metal world, meet the East!"
"Dichotomy", the third album from BECOMING THE ARCHETYPE, sold around 2,300 copies in the United States in its first week of release back in November 2008. The CD debuted at No. 18 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
