Arlington, Texas' Embodyment is band that changed SO MUCH, and not for the good in my opinion. Starting as a group of young teenagers in 1993, Embodyment played really technical death metal under the name Supplication. When being signed to Solid State Records in 1997, under whom they released their first full length record, Embrace the Eternal, they continued the technical hardcore/metal style, but shifted from the death metal sound. This album consisted of mostly new stuff, but did include some old material that they revamped for the new sound. I have all of their old demos and their first full length posted below, but that is all because after their first full length they became an entirely different band. They may as well have changed their name while they were at it. They changed to a more emo styled hardcore sound after the departure of their vocalist Kris McCaddon, who went on to be in not-so-good bands such as The Famine, Demon Hunter (which included a member from Focal Point), and Society's Finest. A couple other members of Embodyment too went on to join Demon Hunter, while majority of the guys went on to form The Famine after the breakup, playing music more metal-influenced. Embodyment lasted from 1993 until sometime in 2004, but real Embodyment lasted only through their Embrace the Eternal record. Thankfully, Tooth & Nail Records released a collection of Embodyment's demos from 1993-1996. Also, the only version of their song "Halo of Winter" was released on the This is Solid State: Volume One comp in 1998.
