Mary Mary - Something Big 20
History ::
Mary Mary is a three time Grammy-award winning American gospel music duo, consisting of sisters Erica Atkins-Campbell (born April 29, 1972) and Tina Atkins-Campbell (born May 1, 1974). The duo are often credited along with Kirk Franklin for broadening the fan base of urban contemporary gospel in the 2000s by introducing elements of soul music, hip hop, funk and jazz. Mary Mary broke onto the music scene with their popular song "Shackles (Praise You)" which is considered one of the pioneering songs of urban contemporary gospel music.

Their debut album Thankful (2000) was certified Platinum. The duo has released three Gold albums: Incredible (2002), and Mary Mary (2005), which all charted #1 on the Billboard Top Gospel Albums.

The sisters were born Erica Atkins and Trecina Atkins. The Campbell (formerly Atkins) sisters grew up as part of a large family of nine children in Inglewood, California. Their parents are Thomasina, an evangelist and choir director at the Evangelistic Church of God in Christ, and Eddie, a youth minister.

The sisters quickly entered the world of church choirs, traveling gospel shows, and some television productions. All eight Atkins children were on the Bobby Jones Gospel show on BET.

The sisters had their sights set on making music a career and enrolled at El Camino College to study voice. There they ran up against the divide between academic music studies and the popular musical world. "We had to study classical and sing arias, which was fine," Erica told the Times, "but the teachers would tell us if we sang anything else it would damage our instrument".

The sisters toured with the 1995 Michael Matthews traveling gospel show Mama I'm Sorry and Sneaky. Each sister subsequently toured as a backup singer for a variety of R&B acts including Brandy.

The Story of Jacob and Esau

jacob taking blessing from his father issac
 The story of Jacob and Esau was a little leaned on Jacob's side of the balance. After all, he was the one who got the birthright in exchange of lentil porridge, and he tricked his father in giving him a final blessing. It was very unfair to Esau, but it seems God didn't seem to care Jacob was getting all the good luck. He even called to him and blessed him and his future inheritors. 
God promised: "I am the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed; And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed. And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee..." (Genesis 28:13-15).
Jacob and Esau the sons of issac
 Still, God seemed to have everything planned, because he made Jacob work to gain his right as one of God's blessed. Laban made him work for seven years in order to earn Rebecca’s hand in marriage, but Laban forced him to marry his first daughter Leah. To get Rebecca he had to work seven more years, and to get enough animals he had to work six more years. How did he agree to that exploitation? Maybe he new he deserved it for all his past stunts against his brother.
The fight between Leah and Rebecca for being the favorite was impressive. Leah started to have lots of children while Rebecca was barren (God interference). Then Rebecca used her handmaid to have children with Jacob on her name. Leah started doing the same, and then Leah used her own handmaid. Finally, God opened Rebecca’s womb and she too had kids. I wonder how Jacob was feeling about all of this. I guess he was just happy getting more and more inheritors for his new generation. In the end he had four wives and twelve kids!
jacob taking blessings from his father issac
As the Bible clearly stated: "Now the sons of Jacob were twelve: The sons of Leah; Reuben, Jacob's firstborn, and Simeon, and Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and Zebulun: The sons of Rachel; Joseph, and Benjamin: And the sons of Bilhah, Rachel's handmaid; Dan, and Naphtali: And the sons of Zilpah, Leah's handmaid; Gad, and Asher: these are the sons of Jacob, which were born to him in Padan-aram." (Genesis 35:22-26).
I'm very glad Jacob and Esau were able to make up in the end. Jacob's actions were cruel, but Esau found it in his heart (helped by the huge amount of animals Jacob sent him) to forgive his younger brother, and there would be no resent between them. It was actually a very happy ending for Isaac's family. Apart that his grandsons destroyed a whole city (to protect their sister's honor), he probably died feeling proud of his family.

The Exodus By God : Moses separating the Red Sea

moses commanding the red sea to get separated
Exodus is a story that I've known for years. I know by heart the incident of the flaming bush, the miracle of the serpent/rod, the bloody river and the seven plagues. It was all perfectly clear to me until I read the King James Bible, and discovered the story wasn't as simple as I thought.
First of all, God was the one who caused everything. It is true the Pharaoh had the Israelites as his slaves, and God was trying to free his people from the Egyptian oppression. But the following quote, which was repeated many times, left me very confused:

the isralites are passing into the red sea
 "And the LORD hardened Pharaoh’s heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go out of his land." (Exodus 11:10)(This quote is similarly repeated in Exodus 7:13, 9:7, 9:35 and 10:20,). I don't understand why the Lord would harden Pharaoh's heart? What was the need of it? What I understand of the story was that God wanted to free the Israelites and send them to the Promised Land. Like he said when he appeared in the flaming bush to Moses:

"I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows; 3:8 And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey;" (Exodus 3:7-8).

He gave Moses signs so people would believe his story, and he walked with him to speak. If he indeed wanted to free his people, then instead of hardening the Pharaoh's heart, couldn't he have softened it? Maybe he needed the plagues to show all his power to the people, and make everyone see he is more powerful than any other god they worshipped. After all, he did say, "I the LORD thy God am a jealous God..." (Exodus 20:5). Still, I think that after the locust plague, when the Pharaoh asked for forgiveness and let the Israelites go, God again hardened his heart and decided to give him more plagues. If you think about it, the Pharaoh repented at least twice, and if God hadn't intervened, the Israelites would have gone from Egypt sooner. In the end, I think the Israelites wouldn't have made the journey to the Promised Land if God hadn't shown all his power and created so much fear amidst the people.

So I think Exodus was God's way to herd the people out of Egypt into the Promised Land where they could live in a covenant with him.

The Story of David and Goliath - Bible Story

David and Goliath 1 samuel 17:1-58 scripture reading in bible
 The story of David is a story of courage, jealousy, loyalty, betrayal and forgiveness. Courage is a small shepherd deciding to fight a 6 cubit and a span tall giant. David, the youngest of the sons of Jesse, was brave enough (or stupid enough) to accept Goliath's challenge. One man from each side would fight, and the winner would let his side subdue the looser side. I still don't understand how they let the crazy kid go. It was almost an impossible situation.  As Saul said, "Thou art not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him: for thou art but a youth, and he a man of war from his youth. " (Samuel I 17:32).

David and Goliath in war field. David defeated Goliath
Obviously David did have the advantage of being on God's side, so in the end, the duel was very unfair, but for the Philistine's side. Saul let David go on his quest to kill Goliath, and later was very thankful. However, this gave David a lot more popularity than Saul had ever gained. What's worse is that David was a better than Saul in pretty much everything. Even the women were aware of this and they happily sang, "Saul hath slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands." (Samuel I 18:7). This made Saul go green with envy. Such were his feelings of hate and envy, he attempted murder two times, sent him on a suicide mission (although it didn't end up too bad for David) and later laid a heavy pursuit on him. All of his attempts to destroy David were rebutted by David's excellent behaviour and God's help. Like the book said, "And David went out whithersoever Saul sent him, and behaved himself wisely:" (Samuel I 18:5). In the end, Saul was never able to kill David or get rid of his jealousy.
This story is very divided into loyalty ad betrayal. David was very loyal to Saul, and he worked for him as a loyal servant. However, he did go to the Philistine side when Saul started hunting him down, betraying the Israelites. Jonathan was also involved in a loyalty/betrayal dilemma. He "loved" his friend David, and became a truly loyal friend. As the book said, "Jonathan and David made a covenant, because he loved him as his own soul." (Samuel I 18:3). This loyalty however, was intercepted with a duty to his father. He couldn't be a loyal friend and at the same time a loyal son, especially since Saul wanted to kill David. When Jonathan helped David escape, he did remain a true friend, but he betrayed his father.
In the end, it all came down to one thing: forgiveness. After his heavy pursuit, Saul was found by David helpless, but he decide not to kill him. He forgave him for all he made him suffer (and run), and let him live. In return, Saul promised not to hunt him down again, and they both reconciled. David remained a loyal friend and servant, because even after all Saul had done to him, he went back to give him a proper burial after he'd been murdered at war. David found all the pieces of Saul and Jonathan's bodies (which had been cut in pieces ad hung in different places) and buried them.

The Crimes of King David

the King David with his harp
 Time has changed David a lot. I remember when he first appeared as the youngest of Jesse's sons. He was so young and so devoted to God he intended to kill Goliath with a simple stone. As soon as he started becoming older, his morals began changing. They didn't seem much at first. He sacked the house of one of his wives husband, but that didn't seem to have a negative impact on his image. He still was very devoted to God and respected him so much. For example, he didn't kill Saul because he was "one of God's anointed." (Samuel I 26:23). And then he became king.
Greediness and ambition can really twist a person's morals. When he finally gets to be king, he starts spreading his territory rapidly. In doing so, he kills thousands of innocent people, and sacks city after city. He even turned the lame and the blind into his personal enemies. Why would he do that? He literally said so, "the lame and the blind, that are hated of David’s soul," (Samuel II 5:8). Isn't a king supposed to have mercy on the week and the less fortunate? He conquered city after city mercilessly. Like he did with Metheg-ammah city:
"David took Metheg-ammah out of the hand of the Philistines. And he smote Moab, and measured them with a line, casting them down to the ground; even with two lines measured he to put to death, and with one full line to keep alive. And so the Moabites became David’s servants, and brought gifts." (Samuel II 8:1-2).
During this time, merciless conquering isn't so bad. It's actually part of forming nations, and nobody takes it so seriously. Some think it's even justifiable. What David did that really messed everything up was commit adultery against Uriah. He lay with his wife Bathsheba, and she became pregnant. What's worse is that he then tries (and succeeds) to kill Uriah. David marries Bathsheba, and she has his son. It's so unfair that David, a king who has all the riches in the world and a lot of wives, can take the only precious thing Uriah had, which was his beloved wife. Like Nathan's metaphor said:
"There were two men in one city; the one rich, and the other poor. The rich man had exceeding many flocks and herds: But the poor man had nothing, save one little ewe lamb, which he had bought and nourished up: and it grew up together with him, and with his children; it did eat of his own meat, and drank of his own cup, and lay in his bosom, and was unto him as a daughter." (Samuel II 12.1-4).
It's actually fair that God gives him all that punishment for his crimes. Apart from making his kingdom full of turmoil, he killed his son. David deserved it for being such a greedy and ambitious pig. So much power went into his head and finished all the morals he had. Most men in power tend to loose their morals.

Bible Sermon by Rev. Michael Phelps : The Magic Is Not In The Faucet

Matthew 17:14-21
14 And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying, 15 Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water. 16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him. 17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me. 18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour. 19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? 20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. 21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

by Rev. Michael Phelps


Thomas Edward (T.E.) Lawrence was born on August 16, 1888 in Wales. Popularly known as Lawrence of Arabia, Lawrence became famous for his exploits as British Military liason to the Arab Revolt during the First World War. The desert raids of British officer T.E. Lawrence and his Arab rebels tied down many Turkish troops who could have been fighting the main British armies in the Middle East. Lawrence of Arabia's struggle against the Turks during World War I was a classic of guerrilla warfare, and his personal account has become a classic of world literature. And, of course, many of you have seen the movie about the life of Lawrence of Arabia.
Lawrence wrote about his Arabian adventures in The Seven Pillars of Wisdom.

During the war, Lawrence formed close friendships with many of the Sheiks of Arabia. After the war, he brought some of these Sheiks back to England to show his appreciation for their support against the Turkish domination.
They had a wonderful visit, appeared before the Joint House of Commons and Parliament, had an audience with the Queen.
On the last night of their visit, Lawrence offered them anything they wanted to take back with them to their desert homes.
They led him up to the hotel room, into the bathroom, and pointed to the faucets in the bathtub and said that they wanted to take faucets with them that would provide them with running water in the deserts.
They didn't realize that the faucets were superficial. Behind them was plumbing, a hot water heater, an energy source that heated the water, a city main that supplied the water, and from the city main went a line to an outside source of water!

  • The magic is not in the faucet! It is what is behind the faucet that gives the water!
  • The faucet can be 24 carat gold, but if its not attached to a water supply, its useless!
  • The magic is not in the faucet, the power comes from what is behind the faucet! Things that are not visible to the human eye, but are there nonetheless!
  • If the pump, or the plumbing, or the reservoir ever to out of service, the faucet is useless! It's what's behind the faucet that gives it its power!


  • I don't want to minimize the importance of a vessel! God needs faucets!
  • God has always worked through human vessels.
  • In fact, most of the time, God works through the most unlikely vessels!

God Can Use Anyone
  • Moses stuttered.
  • David's armour didn't fit.
  • John Mark was rejected by Paul.
  • Timothy had ulcers.
  • Amos' only training was in the school of fig-tree pruning.
  • Jacob was a liar.
  • David had an affair.
  • Solomon was too rich.
  • Abraham was too old.
  • David was too young.
  • Peter was afraid of death.
  • Lazarus was dead.
  • John was self-righteous.
  • Naomi was a widow.
  • Paul was a murderer.
  • So was Moses.
  • Jonah ran from God.
  • Miriam was a gossip.
  • Gideon and Thomas both doubted.
  • Jeremiah was a bullfrog;
  • Just kidding -- he was depressed and suicidal.
  • Elijah was burned out.
  • Martha was a worry-wart.
  • Mary may have been lazy.
  • Samson had long hair.
  • Noah got drunk, and that's not all.
  • Did I mention that Moses had a short fuse?
  • But God doesn't require a job interview.
  • He doesn't hire and fire like most bosses,
  • because He's more our Dad than our Boss.
  • He doesn't look at financial gain or loss.
  • He's not prejudiced or partial, not judging, grudging,
  • sassy, or brassy, not deaf to our cry, not blind to our need.

A Christian minister once said, "I was never of any use until I found out that God did not intend me to be a great man."

God needs us to be faucets! John 7:38
38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
  • God can have all the plumbing in place, have the pump hooked up, ready to pour out blessings on His people, on the world, but He needs us to be vessels! He needs a faucet!
  • In many cases, the only thing that stops a move of God is the lack of a vessel.
  • When Elisha was performing the miracle for the prophet's widow, and the oil was flowing freely, the Bible says:
2 Kings 4:6 

6 And it came to pass, when the vessels were full, that she said unto her son, Bring me yet a vessel. And he said unto her, There is not a vessel more. And the oil stayed.
The only thing that stopped the flow of oil was the lack of a vessel!

  • Now, don't ask me to explain why God decided to use imperfect vessels to accomplish His work.
  • It doesn't make sense to me that this God who can do all things would choose to restrict Himself to moving through imperfect, flawed, inconsistent humanity!
  • I don't know why the Creator chooses to move through His creation!
  • But God is always seeking for men and women through which to move!
  • At the day of Pentecost, God poured out His spirit upon all "FLESH"! Was filling vessels!

In Isaiah 43:18 He said, "I will work, and who will let it?"
God needs a vessel to through which to work!

  • Ezekiel said that God was seeking a MAN to stand in the gap and make up the hedge!
  • When the Lord struck Saul from his horse on the road to Damascus, He then told Saul, "Go see Ananias, he will tell you what to do!" GOD USED A HUMAN VESSEL!
  • In the Book of Revelation, John says that God wept because He could find no MAN to open the book of salvation, so God Himself took on the form of man to bring redemption!
  • Do you understand how important you are to the work of God! God will not move without a vessel!
  • God will not pour out His spirit without a faucet for it to flow through - you are that faucet!
  • God needs you and He needs me!


  • I am a faucet, but I must remember that there is no magic in the faucet!
  • Its what is behind the faucet that counts!
  • If the power supply ever gets shut off behind the wall, this faucet is useless!
  • I may still look good, may still say the same things, may still appear to be the same, but if my power supply is shut off, I am of no use to anyone!

Romans 7:18
18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.
  • I must understand that I am only the vessel, the conduit, the faucet!

2 Corinthians 4:7
7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
  • The power is God's, I am only the earthen vessel! I can't sing well enough, I can't preach well enough to duplicate what God can only do!

Romans 12:3
3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
  • No matter how much God moves through us, remember it is God and not us!
  • No matter how many prophecies we give, no matter how much anointed preaching and teaching comes forth from us, we must never forget that it is what's behind the faucet that makes all the difference!
  • No matter how many good things happen through me, I am only the faucet, there is a power supply behind me, and if that is ever cut off I am useless!
  • They had most likely watched Him cast out devils many times before.
  • They had heard Him teach about going into the Strongman's house and taking his armor.
  • They had probably watched as he sent the legion of devils into a herd of swine.

Numerous times the scripture speaks of Jesus casting out devils, and it is probable that the disciples were witnesses to these events.
  • So, now they come across a situation that they feel very confident that they can handle!
  • They have watched Jesus do this, they have observed His hand motions, listened to what He said, and how he said it!
  • They have the words, actions, motions, and everything else down pat, but there is one thing missing!
  • They have no power! There is nothing behind the faucet, and they fail miserably at the task at hand.

And Jesus takes this opportunity to tell them that there is no magic in the faucet!
  • In other words, if there is no prayer and fasting, there will be no power!
  • There is no magic in the faucet, its what is behind the faucet that makes the difference!
I can:
  • Say all the right words
  • Do all the right hand motions
  • Use the right tone of voice
  • But, if there is no prayer and fasting that has taken place behind the wall, there will be no power coming from the faucet! This kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting!

  • Preachers get into trouble when they learn how to preach!
  • Singers get into trouble when they learn how to sing!
  • Teachers get into trouble when they learn how to teach!
We must never reach the point where we learn how to do what only God can do!
  • I am never going to become so smart that I don't need God!

2312 Simpson's Most Valuable Discovery
In the year 1847, a doctor from Edinburgh, Sir James Simpson, discovered that chloroform could be used as an anaesthetic to render people insensible to the pain of surgery. From his early experiments, Dr. Simpson made it possible for people to go through the most dangerous operations without fear of pain and suffering. Some people even claim that his was one of the most significant discoveries of modern medicine.
Some years later, while lecturing at the University of Edinburgh, Dr. Simpson was asked by one of his students, "What do you consider to be the most valuable discovery of your lifetime?" To the surprise of his students, who had expected him to refer to chloroform, Dr. Simpson replied, "My most valuable discovery was when I discovered myself a sinner and that Jesus Christ was my Saviour."

The most valuable discovery that you and I can make this morning is this:
  • No matter how smart I am,
  • No matter how well I can preach,
  • No matter how well I can organize

  • I am still just a sinner saved by grace!
  • There is no power in me, I am just the faucet, the conduit, the vessel through which His power moves!
  • There is no magic in the faucet - I NEED JESUS!

Prophecy Update : Israel, Jerusalem, The Middle East

" I will take you from the nations, gather you from all the lands, and bring you into your own land." Ezekiel 36:24

"And he told them a parable: "Behold the fig tree and all the trees; as soon as they put forth leaves, you see it and know for yourselves that summer is near. Even so, you too, when you see these things happening, recognize that God is near." Luke 21:29-31

Becoming The Archetype - Celestial Completion 2011 english christian metal album download

becoming the archetype - celestial completion english christian metal songs download
Celestial Completion is the fourth studio album by the American heavy metal band Becoming the Archetype. The album will be released on March 29, 2011 through Solid State Records.

Becoming the Archetype added some diversity and unusual elements to their sound on Celestial Completion. The album features instruments and techniques that are not common for a metal band, including: trombone, sitar, tambura, Tabla, vocoder, an intro with "operatic soprano vocals and four-part harmony," and a recording of a religious mass.

In April 2010, when the group was only in the early stages of writing a new album, Celestial Completion was given the working title of In a Monstrous World of Half-Human Deities, Some People Will Unfortunately Die from Old Age.

Ryan Clark, art director for Solid State Records and vocalist for Demon Hunter, contacted Dan Seagrave to design the artwork for Celestial Completion. Seagrave had previously designed the art for Becoming the Archetype's debut album Terminate Damnation

History ::

Becoming the Archetype is a Christian progressive death metal band signed to Solid State Records and Century Media Records (Europe) formed in 1999 in Dacula, Georgia. They have released three albums on Solid State Records. Dichotomy, released in November 2008, sold around 2,300 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to Nielsen Soundscan. The CD debuted at No. 18 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

There are a lot of things one must understand about Becoming The Archetype in order to fully appreciate their music, and all of them can learned from the band’s mascot: Clifton the Beardskull.

One, the Atlanta, GA quartet are metal through and through. Two, Becoming The Archetype take their music very seriously, but maintain a sense of humor. And three, they’re not afraid to challenge listeners with new and complex ideas.

The only thing that can drive home those points better than Clifton the Beardskull is Becoming The Archetype’s latest LP, Celestial Completion – a wildly ferocious, relentlessly creative and breathtakingly risky album that will redefine the band for fans, skeptics and critics alike. Like BTA, it, too, is uncompromisingly metal, it shows a sense of playfulness and it pushes the limits of heavy music to the very breaking point. There are horns. There is Middle Eastern sitar. There is a choir of sopranos. Needless to say, paint-by-numbers metal this is not. But one bone-crushingly heavy, imaginative tour de force it certainly is.

“Becoming The Archetype has championed a great juxtaposition between heavy music and world music on Celestial Completion,” explains guitarist, pianist and vocalist Count Seth. “Complete with BTA-patent keyboards, epic riffs and Jason Wisdom’s incredible lead vocals, all the elements of great music are firing on all cylinders.”

It’s difficult to determine which is Becoming The Archetype’s greater feat – championing the collision of blistering metal riffage and Indian tablas, or doing so without it sounding pretentious. For BTA, it was simply a matter of operating the way they always do: openly and honestly, with an ever-present sense of adventure.

“We love to make music that is not only aggressive, but is also beautiful and thought-provoking. There’s not much to listen to right now that expands the sound in metal. We had the desire and the ability and the resources to make that happen,” Count Seth explains. “We shot for the stars and struck gold!”

When it comes to shooting for the stars, Celestial Completion is unparallelled. Lyrically, the album addresses the apocalypse as a moment of promise, the beginning of a journey to the heavens that completes the spiritual journey begun on Earth. Musically, it extends the ferociously creative path Becoming The Archetype have forged in the course of their three previous albums for Solid State Records. Epitomizing Celestial Completion’s sonic adventure is the “Requiem Aeternum” trilogy sandwiched in the middle of the album, a three-part concept that ranges from an aching piano interlude to an 8-minute epic rock song that features vocoder vocals, savage riffages and a touch of jazz to a brutally aggressive mass of metal highlighted by church organ and operatic vocals.

Making an enormous impact on the record alongside Count Seth, Wisdom and drummer Duck are newly recruited 22-year-old guitarist Daniel Gailey (whom Seth describes as “an injection of nitro”) and producer Matt Goldman (Underoath, The Chariot, Anberlin), who helped to bring Becoming The Archetype’s grand ambitions to life. And those ambitions don’t stop with the writing and recording of an amazing album. They extend to the listening experience, and to the listeners themselves.

“We hope people connect with the songs on Celestial Completion on a deeply emotional and spiritual level,” Count Seth says. “We want the guy or girl buying the CD to take it home and listen to it and connect in a way that helps define who they are and how they view the universe. We want people to feel excitement about what the world may hold for them and what they’re capable of. We want people to experience hope.”

With Celestial Completion, Becoming The Archetype are proving once again that they’re not afraid to shoot for the stars. And with the help of their rabid fan base, they’ll capture those stars once and for all.
