Metal Songs of the Day – The Balance of Eternity + End of the Age (Becoming the Archetype Month. Lyrics Included)

25 Feb

Becoming the Archetype End of the Age Wallpaper Christ the Godhead In Glory

Nothing more glorious.

The Balance of Eternity + End of the Age by Becoming the Archetype both hail from the end of their respective albums, Balance of Eternity is the final song from Physics of Fire, while End of the Age is the final song from Dichotomy.

Both of these tracks are absolutely incredible, and create an atmosphere of Godliness that is second-to-known, both of them deal with the Second Coming and the End of Days, which is as metal a topic as you can find, in all honesty. Both songs tackle this topic with incredible panache, and are two of the most enjoyable tracks in the entirety of BtA’s discography. The Balance of Eternity tells of the swelling of Believers, Christian souls who’s light melts the darkness, freeing the entrapped souls from the bondage of their sin through the Light of Christ (“the flame”), yet there are those who will never believe, and thus remain frozen in their death to sin. Forever. Yet the song ends triumphant, as Christ returns to reclaim His followers, wherein every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord. So. Awesome.

End of the Age in particular is an absolutely phenomenal song, that makes you want to praise the Lord with all your might, it has an incredibly triumphant sound that is second to known! The chorus in particular, “He is clothed in greatness, His voice resounds throughout the earth” and the way it is sung is absolutely epic. Enjoy!

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

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

End of the Age lyrics by Becoming the Archetype:

The earth is SHAKING
Because of His WRATH

The mountains TREMBLE
At the sound of HIS VOICE

He pulls down the sky
TO CRUSH HIS ENEMIES

He descends upon them
WITH FIRE

HE IS CLOTHED IN GREATNESS
HIS VOICE RESOUNDS THROUGHOUT THE EARTH

His vengeance no longer is contained
His light destroys THE DARKNESS

If He speaks
The Earth will CRUMBLE
IF HE MOVES the universe will fall

HE IS CLOTHED IN GREATNESS
HIS VOICE RESOUNDS THROUGHOUT THE EARTH

With the valleys of the seas exposed
And the surface of the Earth LAID BARE

He reached down
Into the void
HE REACHED DOWN AND TOOK HOLD OF ME

HALLELUJAH!

HALLELUJAH!

HALLELUJAH!

HALLELUJAH!

HALLELUJAH!

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!
