      Becoming the Archetype's second album (2007).

      The second full-length release from Christian metalcore band Becoming the Archetype is a little disappointing after the strength of their debut, and despite the progressive elements that continue to be plagiarised from melodic death metal bands such as Opeth, the music here is all far too repetitive to be of interest as the album plods onwards. The melodic death metal lead guitars have now become more or less a cliche, standing out too prominently amidst the yelled verses just as the mellow sections of every single song act more as a jarring interruption than a seamless central movement. This album also sees the inevitable move away from death metal growls to include clean singing, which just as predictably sounds fairly poor.

      The piano that worked so well in past songs such as 'Elegy' makes a less impressive return here in several tracks, notably leading the way in the instrumental 'Nocturne' alongside the lighter rock instruments, and in other songs such as the four-part title suite, the keyboard is modulated to an atmospheric style that doesn't work wholly successfully. This is an average quality album that's still above and beyond the quality of regular, angst-ridden metalcore, but isn't a patch on what the band could have been if it had tried, but I'm sure their Lord will forgive them for their trespass (God much preferred their earlier melodeath stuff).
