Atlanta, Georgia-based metallers BECOMING THE ARCHETYPE have completed work on their fourth album, "Celestial Completion", for a tentative March 2011 release via Solid State Records. The CD was produced by Matt Goldman (UNDEROATH, THE CHARIOT, COPELAND) and contains 11 tracks. Dennis Culp of FIVE IRON FRENZY fame lent his trombone skills to a particularly interesting track containing a ska section. Songs will start to be released in January.
"Dichotomy", the third album from BECOMING THE ARCHETYPE, sold around 2,300 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. 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.
"Dichotomy" was released in November 2008 via Solid State Records. The CD's cover artwork was created by Kristian Wahlin (AT THE GATES, AMORPHIS, BATHORY, DISSECTION, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, THERION, EVERGREY). The album featured guest appearances by Ryan Clark (DEMON HUNTER), Devin Townsend (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD) and a soprano named Suzanne Richter.
