Just weeks away from the release of their pummeling fifth album, I Am, metal provocateurs BECOMING THE ARCHETYPE are pleased to share another new track, “The Planet Maker,” exclusively via MetalSucks.
Armed with sweeping guitar leads and dueling growled and soaring vocals, “The Planet Maker” is a progressive ode to the guitar gods and gives fans another taste of what to expect when I Am hits stores September 18th from longtime label Solid State Records. Explains band nucleus Seth Hecox:
“‘The Planet Maker’ is our most proggy song on the record. It reflects our love of progressive rock/metal and good, original songwriting. The song includes screaming and singing. It’s our most marketable singing on the record and the melody is in a style that is slightly new for BTA.
There are also some killer solos on this song, satiating the guitar nerds and the girls that require guitar gods to inhabit the bands that they unconditionally love,” Hecox deadpans. “To match the lyrics and concept of ‘The Planet Maker,’ there are some spacey elements to the music. The riffs harken to a sci-fi interest and feeling of new beginnings of a metaphysical nature.”
