Editorial Reviews

Adding a new chapter to an already impressive release history, Becoming the Archetype returns with their fourth and most diverse record yet on Solid State Records. Produced and mixed by Matt Goldman (The Chariot, Underoath, MYCHILDREN MYBRIDE), Celestial Completion is one of the year's most anticipated metal releases. With a wave of new sounds, the record is an experimental celebration that succeeds on every level, mixing Becoming The Archetype's patented progressively heavy sound with the sound of trombones, sitars, and guest operatic vocals. Filled with innovation and precision, Celestial Completion elevates the band to a level of unrivaled musicianship and songwriting.The record is sure to be a favorite for fans of Between the Buried and Me, Soilwork, and Living Sacrifice.

Where to begin? At the beginning, I suppose.

I have been anticipating this album since early February. The album title was released on December 6, 2010, and the lyrics on January 21, 2010, but the hype really started building on February 14, 2010, when the first song, "Magnetic Sky" was released. With all this hype, there's always the possibility of being let down? Was this the case for me? Not at all.

[scroll to the bottom if you just want the summary]

"Celestial Completion" starts with a song titled "Resonant Frequency of Flesh." I'm a huge power metal fan, so this was quite a treat for me. The track is quite theatrical with plenty of bombast, including string arrangements, opera vocals, and soaring vocals from guitarists Seth Hecox and Daniel Gailey. [5 stars]

The second track, and the first released, "The Magnetic Sky" has powerful use of rhythm, and masterful use of pinch harmonics. The vocal melody and harmony are well-written and executed perfectly. This song also includes a short breakdown [just short and complex enough to not be cliche]. [4 stars]

"Internal Illumination" . . . "Let's Go!!!" The opening riff is very metalcore-ish, but it does quickly move on to a prog-metal flavor with just a hint of death metal. This song slows its tempo 4 times as the song progresses, and this makes for max brutality. Heck yes. The ending is quite nasty... as in sick. nasty. awesome. [4 stars]

"Path of the Beam" starts out with a feel similar to "Epoch of War" from "Physics of Fire," Becoming the Archetype's sophomore album. The vocal parts on this track are all masterful, from Jason Wisdom's "lion's growl," to the nearly R&B sounding melodic vocals, and Daniel's high-pitched scream being interjected every so often.

I have been a fan of several solid state records artists for many years. This includes Haste the Day, Norma Jean, The Showdown, and Oh, Sleeper. I have never really listened to BTA, but I listened to the album through a link on the solid state website and was pleasantly surprised. I bought it yesterday. After listening to this about six times, I am blown away every time back through the album. There is something new that I didn't hear the last time around. It is different from most of what I'm used to, but it is a welcome change. If you like this style of music but want something a little different while maintaining pure awesomeness, you should buy this. I am now a huge fan.

This album really surprised me. Not only did it initially grab me, but after repeated listenings, it just keeps getting better! How did a christian metalcore band, progress this quickly between releases? I would still call this metalcore, BUT, it is the best possible concoction of hardcore, metal, many different instruments including a horn section, and (lets face it) christian youth sing-song?!!?! The metal is technical and layered, the hardcore is tough and dense and the choruses swell like rapturous hymns! It sounds so well blended that when I say crossover success, I mean MAINSTREAM. These guys could blow up pretty soon, so listen to this now, blow your mind, then get on the bandwagon!

Awesome band! Not only can they sing, they can scream and even play some awesome ballads. The most important part is they are a fatih based band, so all thier music revolves around thier faith in the Lord. This is one of my favorite bands

Losing a guitarist, who also wrote a lot of the music, you'd expect something different. However, Celestial Completion is still clearly BTA. To be honest, I wanted another Dichotomy, so initially I was disappointed with Celestial Completion. Not because it wasn't good, because it was. My disappointment though went away. When I started appreciating Celestial Completion for what it is, I began to hear how great the album really is. Daniel did a great job staying in the BTA vein, but putting some nice touches to the songs. The album has the typical doses of musical tangents, but it all works. Celestial Completion has a uniqueness about it that keeps me coming back and listening to it on a regular basis. I hope this isn't their last great album, as with news that their vocalist, Jason, and drummer, "Duck" have left has me wondering if they can keep their identity. A band can only lose so much of its core before becoming something else. I saw BTA live with Chris filling in on vocals, and he did a great job, but he has a different sound from Jason. We'll see. In the meantime, Celestial will continue to satisfy.

This album is beautifully written, both instrumental and lyrically. I currently have two of their albums and plan on getting more. Although I love this band, I suggest listening to some of their songs on YouTube before deciding whether you should make the purchase rather than taking my word for it. To each their own, not everyone has the same taste.

At first, I thought that this would be another great album from Becoming the Archetype, then I listened to it. To me, it was a complete let down. I tried listening to it over and over, and still haven't found a reason to like this album. How can an artist like these guys right after releasing a masterpiece like Dichotomy just take all of the things that made that album one of my all time favorites, and throw it out the window in this one?! First off, there was a LOT of clean vocals, a first for these guys. It just doesn't fit quite right with a band that is kind of between the deathcore and metalcore genres. Not to mention, except for a select few in Magnetic Sky, the guitar riffs were not all that impressive. To me, it just sounded like they threw a bunch of riffs together without caring how they sounded or if they even fit together. And I'm sorry, but what was with the jazz piece? Don't get me wrong, I love jazz, especially classical jazz, but please keep it out of death/metalcore. All in all, I was very disappointed in this album and am not expecting much out of the next because the only remaining member is Seth Hecox, and one of my favorite things about the band was Jason Wisdom's vocals.
