Et Al Metal Songs of the Day – Monolith+Construct and Collapse+Fire Made Flesh+Second Death+Deep Heaven+Eyes of the Storm+Weapon Breaker+Physics of Fire Quadrilogy (Becoming the Archetype Month)

11 Feb

The Monolith+Construct & Collapse+Fire Made Flesh+Second Death+Deep Heaven+Eyes of the Storm+The Weapon Breaker, PHEW! Becoming the Archetype Month celebrates the “et al” section of leftover songs that I couldn’t fit anywhere else in the month. All of these awesome songs, a great deal from BtA’s second album, The Physics of Fire, were not originally going to be included. However I had a change of heart, instead of making this day a tribute to the Physics of Fire Quadrilogy of songs (three of which are already included this month, such as Epoch of War from February 1st) I decided to throw in everything.

That would’ve been a waste to do the trilogy as I’d be including three songs twice over the scope of the month. Thus, the one song that was part of the Physics of Fire trilogy that was missing from this month is here, mixed in with a bunch of other tracks that I couldn’t fit anywhere else and were originally left on the cutting room floor. As always, these tracks will be strung together into one EPIC video!

Starting with the 2007 Physics of Fire album (BtA’s 2nd), we have songs including The Monolith, Construct & Collapse, Fire Made Flesh and The Second Death, tracks #6, #7, #9 and #10. Of these, The Monolith is one of my favorite songs on the entire album. Then you have Deep Heaven which is track #9 from Dichotomy (and features Suzanne Richter doing the operatic female vocals section) and is the only song I wasn’t originally going to include from the phenomenal 2008 Dichotomy album (BtA’s third album), as it’s my least favorite and a song I always skip. It’s still awesome and a very interesting experimental metal piece… Bringing up the rear are two tracks from Becoming the Archetype’s 5th full-length album, 2012’s I AM, they are: The Eyes of the Storm and The Weapon Breaker, tracks #3 and #7. Both are awesome songs, although I don’t care for The Weapon Breaker, which is arguably the heaviest song the band has ever done and is pure Death Metal.

Fire Made Flesh btw is part 2 of the four-part “Physics of Fire Quadrilogy” of songs (The Great Fall [Physics of Fire Part 1], Fire Made Flesh [Pt 2], Epoch of War [Pt 3], Balance of Eternity [Pt 4]), you’ll be able to listen to all of them as part of Becoming the Archetype month, however as a special treat, I’ll stick all four parts into a single video to make them one song and post them here below for your listening pleasure, along with lyrics! That way I’m still covering what this day was originally going to be about, the Physics of Fire trilogy. :D You are welcome! ENJOY ALL THE METAL GOODNESS!

The Monolith lyrics by Becoming the Archetype:

I stood at the foot of the mountain
And watched the fire descend
The earth trembled
Smoke filled the air
I heard the sound of a trumpet
Calling me into the darkness
I ascended to the top of the mountain
I stood in the center of the flame
Yet I was not consumed

Construct & Collapse lyrics by Becoming the Archetype:

These are the times that try men’s souls
In this the age of obscurity
The world awaits its own demise and all creation cries out
Unleash your devastation
Like a pestilence throughout the land
Bring utter desolation
Let your judgment fall
Pour out your power
Pour out your wrath
Assail the gates of sin and death
And scatter the council of the wicked
To devour evil where it dwells
End persecution
End torment
End despair
Reclaim your creation

Fire Made Flesh lyrics by Becoming the Archetype:

And so was the plight of man for generations
Their souls remained frozen
Enslaved in darkness
Until the day that fire fell from heaven
Those who witnessed the blaze took up torches
And carried them into all the earth
Bearing witness that fire would be the key
To undoing the enemy’s grasp on their souls
Yet there were those who refused to believe
Since they had not seen the source of the blaze with their own eyes
Still many others left all they had behind
They took up torches and carried the flame
I will carry the flame to the end of the earth with me
This fire that burns forever is the only thing that sets me free
They marched deep into the depths of the earth
To reclaim their souls from the enemy

Second Death lyrics by Becoming the Archetype:

Surrounded by darkness
My body cold
My spirit weak
My greatest attempts to start a fire have proved to be in vain
The flame always fades
The warmth never lasts
And the freezing grip of death is at my throat again
Consumed by despair
My final breath escapes
I can hear the sound of a fire burning all around me
Yet I see no light
I feel no warmth
I find no rest

Deep Heaven lyrics by Becoming the Archetype:

Awakened from the shadows
Leaving behind that cold and silent planet
Moving through infinity
Into the embrace of heaven
Eternity has overtaken me
Eternity is inside of me
My eyes have been illuminated
To reality; the fallen state of earth
Revelation penetrates the silence
Cuts to the center of my spirit
Destroys my previous conception of existence
Until this moment all that I have known
Is death’s attempt at imitating life
(And for the first time I am truly alive)
Eternity has overtaken me
Eternity is inside of me

Eyes of the Storm lyrics by Becoming the Archetype:

I CAUSE
CHAOS
AND CONFUSION

I put THE SKY
IN.
TURMOIL.

I see the world as the SUN DOES
I wreak havoc in a WHIRLWIND
The WIND is at my FINGERTIPS
And MY voice is THE LIGHTNING
And THE THUNDER

DESTRUCTION
Is my work
To OBLITERATE
Your petty STRUCTURES

DESTRUCTION
Is my work

To OBLITERATE
Your petty STRUCTURES

To make your weak hearts quiver
To make you tremble
To create in you a sense of fear
To open your eyes
To your desperation

DESTRUCTION
Is my work

To OBLITERATE
Your petty STRUCTURES

DESTRUCTION
Is my work

To OBLITERATE
Your petty STRUCTURES

Oh how I long for you to say
“Consume my beating heart”
“From within”
From within
From the inside
TEAR ME APART

Consume my beating heart!
From within tear me apart!
Consume my beating heart!
From WITHIN
Tear me APART!

The Weapon Breaker lyrics by Becoming the Archetype:

THIS IS THE DAY YOU DIE
Murder
Murder and hatred
Infliction
Infliction of pain
And creation
Creation of SORROW
Murder and hatred
Total annihi-lation

Destruction OF SOULS that I’ve redeemed

Obliteration OF LIVES that I’ve created

The scars of your lives
The sounds of your cries
Destruction. Obliteration.
The scars of your lives
The sounds of your cries
Destruction OF THE SOULS that I’ve REDEEMED

All these shall see their….
All these shall see their END
All these shall see their….
All these shall see their END

I will destroy your destructive desires
And nothing shall remain EXCEPT
The life you live in Me

All these shall see their………
All these shall see their END

THE PHYSICS OF FIRE QUADRILOGY. Lyrics Included – The Great Fall (Physics of Fire Part 1), Fire Made Flesh (Pt. 2), Epoch of War (Pt 3), The Balance of Eternity (Final Part 4)

The Great Fall Lyrics by Becoming the Archetype:

In the time before the great fall
The power of fire was known to man
Imparted at creation as a vital component of the human soul
And the only knowledge that the enemy did not possess
And the reason that he deceived humanity
Many ages have passed since that time
When the evil one made his pact
When men were yet ignorant to the truth and easily deceived
In exchange for the keys to knowledge
Mankind gave up their immortal souls
Corrupted by the enemy
The souls were held
Encased in ice
Indefinitely

Fire Made Flesh Lyrics by Becoming the Archetype:

And so was the plight of man for generations
Their souls remained frozen
Enslaved in darkness
Until the day that fire fell from heaven
Those who witnessed the blaze took up torches
And carried them into all the earth
Bearing witness that fire would be the key
To undoing the enemy’s grasp on their souls
Yet there were those who refused to believe
Since they had not seen the source of the blaze with their own eyes
Still many others left all they had behind
They took up torches and carried the flame
I will carry the flame to the end of the earth with me
This fire that burns forever is the only thing that sets me free
They marched deep into the depths of the earth
To reclaim their souls from the enemy

Epoch of War Lyrics by Becoming the Archetype:

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

The Balance of Eternity Lyrics by Becoming the Archetype:

They stood just inside the walls of the fortress
And looked out upon an endless sea of ice
At first the only sound was of burning torches
But another sound was rising
That of thousands of souls groaning in bitter agony
Trapped just below the surface and awakened by the presence of fire
The sound of the souls crying out for rebirth continued to grow
It became deafening and caused all of the men there
To fall on their knees
They drove their torches into the ground and watched as the ice began to melt away
The enemy’s grasp was broken by the power of fire
And a great multitude of souls were reclaimed from the ice
But there were many others that did not respond
To the presence of fire
They remained frozen
Enslaved in darkness
Forever

Epilogue (6:55)
When the mountains crumble into the sea
When the stars fall from the heavens and scorch the earth
Then every knee will bow before the flame
And every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord
Forever

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!
