"These guys are original enough to stand on their own. There is some pretty in depth sounding stuff that I found very impressive."
"If you haven't heard Archetype yet, I hope that I've tickled your interest. This is a band to look out for in the future."
"The heartland of America is about the last place you’d expect to find a band of Archetype’s ilk and caliber. But with Dawning, these guys have proven they can compete with Europe’s big boys."
"This ‘edge’ is what pulls Archetype back on solid ground and makes a purchase of ‘Dawning’ worth your while."
"The album’s masterpiece has to be the brilliant "Years Ago", simply great from the opening acoustic intro 'till the end clicking in at 12'30, but there's not a single bad track on the whole album, so if you are a fan of powermetal, then you should check this CD out, I am really enjoying every spin in my CD-player. EXCELLENT!"
"Archetype is comprised of some very talented musicians and the quality of play throughout the album is only second to the originality rating of the songs on Dawning."
