Before joining Solid State Records, the band were called The Remnant and released an independent self-titled album. In December 2004, the band signed with Solid State and released their first nation-wide album, Terminate Damnation, produced by Tue Madsen.

After two long years on the road promoting their jaw-dropping debut, Terminate Damnation, the Atlanta based progressive death metal band has crafted what will prove to be their defining work: the blistering sophomore album, The Physics of Fire.

Crafted with producer Andres Magnusson (Black Dahlia Murder, The Agony Scene, Scarlet) at the helm, The Physics of Fire further explores the band's more progressive side, while delivering all of the ferocity their fans have come to expect.

Longtime Aletheian guitarist/ songwriter Alex Kenis has come on board the newly retooled lineup, which re-imagined Becoming The Archetype as a lean and mean four-piece. In addition to his apparent mastery of the guitar, Kenis also brings the element of melodic vocals, an area previously unexplored by the group.

Alex's guitar and vocal presence -- together with bassist Jason Wisdom's even more crushing lead vocals, Brent Duckett's fluid and innovative percussion work and the versatile songwriting capabilities of "Count" Seth Hecox on both guitar and keyboard -- elevates Becoming The Archetype above their peers and into the ranks of some of metal's most well-established forefathers.

In 2008,Becoming The Archetype once again stayed ahead of the game by releasing Dichonomy, their third and most brutally epic album to date. Combining the dark atmosphere of Terminate Damnation with the expansive nature of  The Physics Of Fire, Becoming The Archetype have firmly secured their spot at the top of Metal's rising stars.
