Personally, I adore Becoming the Archetype. Last year’s Celestial Completion, just missed my best of, too. If you haven’t had a chance to listen to it, you should and then dig into their back catalogue. It’s with that level of love that I came across thePrp’s articlethePrp’s article on BtA’s new happenings. Granted, it’s mostly about their impending remix album (which excites me about as much as a bowel movement does. Sorry guys), but the key nugget is when the band state that;
The focus of the next record is riffs that just blow you away with their heaviness and headbangability. Yes, I just made that word up.
If “headbangability” doesn’t get you excited, I don’t know what will. All I can think of is a glorious mix of the mature songwriting of the BtA of now, and the balls-to-the-walls heaviness of Terminate Damnation. This is going to rule folks!
I wouldn’t expect anything this year (they haven’t even finished writing yet), but when it drops, I will be one giddy fan.
