  • @TheWrathofThor, They are both. It's surprising that they aren't tagged as deathcore, really...probably for the best, since their sound is more creative than the majority of deathcore bands currently playing.
  • The lyrics to "Evil Unseen" are about The Dark Tower books by Stephen King. Most of the other lyrics on Dichotomy were inspired by That Hideous Strength and other works from C.S. Lewis.
  • ayyy wut, how are these guys tagged as metalcore first and then death metal?......Listening to them, sounds like DM to me
  • their first two albums are great, the rest are meh
  • Jason Wisdom is currently working on a PHD, just saying.
  • v Touche, I forgot how much better the lyrics were on Celestial Completion. I still prefer a vocalist that hasn't shown signs of being anti-science (referring to Evil Unseen in particular.)
  • "You're right, now we don't have to deal with lyrics like the album Dichotomy." We already moved away from Dichotomy lyrics with Celestial Completion.
  • pozdrowienia ze Śląska dla fanów Becoming the Archetype
  • "BTA just isn't the same without Jason Wisdom." You're right, now we don't have to deal with lyrics like the album Dichotomy.
  • Line up changes happened...really, I Am is a good album if you are a djent fan. If you aren't, well, I understand your disappointment.
