Metal Songs of the Day – Ransom + Evil Unseen (Becoming the Archetype Month. Lyrics Included) From Dichotomy

19 Feb

Ransom + Evil Unseen by Becoming the Archetype are tracks #6 and 7 from Becoming the Archetype’s third full-length album, 2008’s jaw-dropping Dichotomy.

My two absolute favorite songs from this flat-out incredible album are tracks seven and eight, Ransom and Evil Unseen. These two tracks are best played back-to-back because they are so absolutely epic through and through. Ransom features some of my favorite lines on the album, particularly the face-melting heaviness of the final line of the song, which ranks as my favorite metal section of all time. I won’t reveal it hear or risk spoiling the absolute awesomeness. And that song is followed by one of the heaviest songs from Dichotomy in Evil Unseen, a song that will get you headbanging until your head comes off. I feel like all the words I’ve just said are wholly inadequate to describe how absolutely pulverizing these two tracks are. Just listen and rock your little heart out!

Ransom lyrics by Becoming the Archetype:

The sky grows PALE
And the sea turns black
SOLID DARKNESS
Falls all around me

MAKES IT HARD TO BREATH
MAKES IT HARD . . . TO THINK

But the darkness IS NOT EMPTY
It is BEARING DOWN upon me

MAKES IT HARD TO BREATH
MAKES IT HARD
TO THINK
And I know this can’t go on!

Oh death my worthy adversary
You’ve
TORMENTED ME
For FAR TOO LONG

HE LEAPT
Into the arms of Hell itself
That gave birth
TO CORRUPTION
And battled
With the undead corpse
Until it’s face was SMASHED BEYOND
REC-OGNI-TION

. . . . . GO

My hands have taught me terrible things
His hands have SET ME FREE

My hands have taught me terrible things
His hands have SET ME FREE
My hands have taught me terrible things
Terrible things
TERRIBLE THINGS

My hands have taught me terrible things
His hands have SET ME FREE
My hands have taught me terrible things
Terrible things
TERRIBLE THINGS

Evil Unseen lyrics by Becoming the Archetype:

RUN

There is a pattern of deception growing . . .
Feeding off of our IGNORANCE

IT WONT LET GO
Until we let go
IT WANTS CONTROL
Just take a leap of faith

So many times . . . We doom ourselves . . .
But the root is always
THE SAME

We exchange our faith
For rational thought
We trade our conscience . . .
For advanced reasoning

But there’s no love in thought!
Nothing that lasts in deduction

There’s no hope
In justifying wrong

JUST DEATH in rationalism

I AM NOT OF THIS WORLD
And science cannot explain me!

I will transcend death
This body will not contain me!

I AM NOT OF THIS WORLD
And science cannot explain me!

I will transcend death
This body will not contain me!

This evil . . .
UNSEEN
Must be . . .
DEFEATED
This pattern
Must
Be
Destroyed

It hijacks the mind
Distorts our perception
Perverting the truth ’til it’s gone . . . .

IT WON’T LET GO
Until we let go . . .
IT WANTS CONTROL
Just take a leap of faith

OH HEAVEN
-BREAK THIS CYCLE-

Compromising faith will doom the generations
The cancer of mind-worship leaves the spirit to decay

Compromise your faith and doom your generation
The cancer of mind-worship will leave your spirit to decay

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!
