Metal Songs of the Day – March of the Dead, Into Oblivion, Epoch Of War, Mountain of Souls, Resonant Frequency of Flesh, Magnetic Sky, Ocean Walker (Becoming the Archetype Month)

01 Feb

Becoming the Archetype Torches Bandmates Photo ShootToday’s Metal Songs of the Day are Becoming the Archetype’s March of the Dead/Into Oblivion+Epoch of War+Mountain of Souls+The Resonant Frequency of Flesh/The Magnetic Sky+The Ocean Walker all together in one massive earth-obliterating song to kick off Becoming the Archetype Month (February 2013) with a bang!

In case you didn’t notice, the 1st of February kicks BtA Month off nicely by including the album opener for each of Becoming the Archetype’s five full-length albums, starting with their debut album “Terminate Damnation” and its intro “The March of the Dead” followed by the opening song “Into Oblivion”. Next up is “Epoch of War”, the opening song from Becoming the Archetype’s sophomore album “The Physics of Fire”, followed by “Mountain of Souls”, the opener from their third landmark album (and the greatest Christian metal album of all time IMHO), “Dichotomy”. That is followed by “The Resonant Frequency of Flesh” and “The Magnetic Sky”, the intro and opening of BtA’s fourth full-length album, “Celestial Completion”. Last but not least, we have the opening song from the band’s fifth full-length album “I AM”, “The Ocean Walker”. If you never heard of Becoming the Archetype before, this will surely awaken you to their greatness and give you a mega-awesome slice of their progression in sound from one album to the next, ending with I AM which features a new lead singer in Chris McCane who replaced BtA founder and vocalist Jason Wisdom, yet still managed to create a flat-out incredible album.

Be sure to check out my Becoming the Archetype I AM album review.

Here are song lyrics for each of the Becoming the Archetype album opener’s!

MARCH OF THE DEAD (Instrumental)

INTO OBLIVION

It hurts to see you live you life revolving around death
And to see your heart when I can’t see your face
So far away
One foot in front of the other, step to the right
Time has it’s way and I’ll be right here waiting for you

EPOCH OF WAR (The Physics of Fire Part 3)

The number of men who carried the flame continued to increase
And a massive force was gathered just outside the prison
Where the evil one had trapped the souls of men
And with a sounding trumpet
In an instant the siege was underway
The forces of humanity swarmed the enemy camp
They stormed the gates relentlessly
Waving their torches and shouting together
There is none that can stand against the power of fire

MOUNTAIN OF SOULS

I AM A GHOST
A phantom in a solid world

Standing at
The foothills of FOREVER . . .
With no strength to carry on

Every step I take
SHINES LIGHT
On my defective state, but I won’t ever fade away

ETERNITY
Is black and white
And I’ve been living IN BETWEEN (Another shade of gray)

Put your arms around me
Lift me up so I can see

The MOUNTAIN of SOULS
The RIVER of BLOOD

Bury me in the river
That flows with blood FOREVER

Carry me up to the mountain
Where the sacrifice was made

Where through a pool of light
We experience . . . .
SPACES

THE RESONANT FREQUENCY OF FLESH

There was a time
When we all sang the song of death
But now our bodies resonate
Our living souls reverberate
The music of eternal light

THE MAGNETIC SKY

Here at the end of the world
Planets fall and we are rising
Soul and sky are magnetizing
Here at the end of the world
We are witnessing together
The inception of forever
Time begins to bend
And then it breaks
When it s all gone
We ll be movin on, movin on
Rising
Magnetizing
Lift the earth and like a wave
Carry us to shore
What a perfect
What a beautiful emptiness
And we will live forevermore
Crush the mountain in your hand
Drink the ocean dry
What a perfect
What a beautiful emptiness
To know that we will never die
A world within a world
A life that blooms in death
The blade that severs cleanly
Takes away the need for breath
A hand within a hand
A window in the eye
The heart becomes irrelevant
When the blood is on the outside
We have come alive
In this magnetic sky
We have come alive
And death shall be no more
This is what we were created for

THE OCEAN WALKER

I WALKED
I walked
Across the ocean
To the island
Of the DEAD
I CLIMBED
I climbed the mighty tidal wave
All other
MEN HAVE DREAD

I alone am standing…
Standing in a
world of SILENCE

The TSUNAMI and the HURRICANE
BOW DOWN

I alone am standing…
Standing in a
world of SILENCE

The TSUNAMI and the HURRICANE
BOW DOWN
Bow down at my COMMAND

All the oceans
ALL THE OCEANS filled with DEATH
I have CONSUMED
In a single BREATH
I AM THE FOUNTAINHEAD!
I AM THE FOUNTAINHEAD!
I AM THE FOUNTAINHEAD!
I'M BRINGING. BACK. THE. DEAD.
I AM THE FOUNTAINHEAD!
I AM THE FOUNTAINHEAD!
I AM THE FOUNTAINHEAD!
BRINGING. BACK. THE. DEAD.

About Becoming the Archetype Month
February 2013 is dedicated to the Christian metal band Becoming the Archetype, arguably my favorite band (Along with Demon Hunter and The Showdown, both signed to Solid State Records) and follows January 2013 which was Demon Hunter Month. February will feature songs from BtA’s entire catalog featured daily throughout the month, one a day. Whether you like metal, believe in God or not, check these songs out as you may be pleasantly surprised and hopefully you will discover some new-to-your-ears music to enjoy. Becoming the Archetype’s sound is extremely heavy, and metalheads will be in Heaven. However all songs are deep with powerful lyrics that will make you think and ponder, as the sound takes you to new spaces between time and existence, Heaven and Hell. Enjoy!
