Archetype are a band from Montreal, Quebec, Canada that plays a progressive mixture of death and thrash metal and this is a review of their self released 2016 album "Mission".
Distorted sounds start off the album before going into a heavier musical direction along with some grim screams a few seconds later which also also get mixed with death metal growls while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic style and you can also hear elements of German thrash in the vocals.
At times the music can be very technical and progressive and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the faster sections also bringing in a decent amount of blast beats and a couple of tracks also brings in power metal vocals that are a little bit out of key and as the album progresses synths can also be heard briefly while t he last track brings in elements of classical music.
Archetype plays a musical style that takes thrash and death metal and also takes them into more of a progressive and technical direction to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark adn real lise themes.
In my opinion Archetype are a very great sounding progressive mixture of death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Welcome" "Fondation" and "Glimpse". 8 out of 10.
