Embrace the Eternal

Embrace the Eternal is the debut album by the Christian metal band, Embodyment. Coming three years after their primarily death metal demos, the album blends their original death metal style with metalcore sounds.[2] Because of such, it is considered to be the first deathcore album. The lyrics speak to their Christian beliefs, focusing on Christ's Crucifixion, Christian troubles and doubts in faith.[1]
