There is a lot to be interested in here. It is very doomy and very loud deathy doom metal with some symphonic black metal utilities. There are a lot of keyboards in use especially sounding good in the intro to Epigone. They will go from loud and raucous to soft and lucid at many points in a song which allows for some interesting musical contrast. There are many melodic passages is all of the songs so anyone can listen to them no matter what genre of metal they like!

The lyrics are usually important to me with any band. Except Becoming The Archetype. It is hard to even understand what is being said but I am sure it is good. The singer growls in a sort of voice like none I have evr heard. It is almost like Cannibal Corpse mixed with Breaking Benjamin if that sounds strange well I one hundred percent agree with you. They are supposed to be a christian band and I am agnostic so the lyrics don't matter to me but they are probably slightly preachy.

BTA are an interesting band because of their unique style of playing. If anyone knows who they are the most closly relate to Scar Symmetry and Demon Hunter. On their next album they had some normal singing and that would have been nice to have heard on this album but, you know how it is, you can't get everything you want. Go buy it! And buy it for your friends and your family and complete strangers! You'll enjoy!
