BECOMING THE ARCHETYPE - "The Physics Of Fire" - Biography 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, "Teminate 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 Andreas 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.

Longtime Aletheian guitarist/ songwriter Alex Kenis has come onboard the newly retooled lineup, which re-imagined Becoming The Archetype as a lean and mean four-piece. In addition to his apparent mastery of the guitar, Kenis also brings the element of melodic vocals, an area previously unexplored by the group.

Alex’s guitar and vocal presence — together with bassist Jason Wisdom’s even more crushing lead vocals, Brent Duckett’s fluid and innovative percussion work and the versatile songwriting capabilities of "Count" Seth Hecox on both guitar and keyboard — elevates Becoming The Archetype above their peers and into the ranks of some of metal’s most well-established forefathers.

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.

"If more metal bands chose the path of Becoming The Archetype, the world would be a better place." —Chris Pandolfo (
