Artist Of The Week - Anchor & Braille

It's been about three years since we've gotten an album from Anchor & Braille, the indie side project of Anberlin's Stephen Christian, but this week, on July 31st, the band's sophomore album will be released. The Quiet Life is a collection of haunting melodies and catchy percussion, certainly a maturation of sound since 2009's Felt. The Quiet Life is available now in stores and online through Tooth & Nail Records.

When attempting to describe Becoming The Archetype's upcoming release, Celestial Completion, one word that comes to mind would be epic. And the album is exactly that. It has parts that you would expect and love from the band, where Celestial Completion also sounds like nothing else ever made, or that should be expected, from BTA. Sure, there are a few breakdowns and hearty helpings of blast beats and double bass drumming, but also diverse instrumentation like no other. An interlude made up of a Middle-Eastern sitar, choir-like vocals that accompany operatic vocals, and interesting flavoring of ska are only a few elements of the unique and eclectic sound offered on the album.

Don't get me wrong, Celestial Completion is not a bad album to any extent, which it's not, but is also one that isn't a classic on first listen, and takes time to digest, and realize all that Becoming The Archetype have added to their great brand of metal. This is a release looking forward to.
