Archetypes Collide: Breaking the Metalcore Mold and Embracing Vulnerability with Kyle Pastor

Archetypes Collide is becoming one of the most talked-about names in hard rock — before their debut album even releases. With unswervingly honest lyrics and a variety of genre archetypes smashed together for one monster sound, Archetypes Collide’s forthcoming self-titled album (due March 31) promises to hit home for a variety of listeners.


The heartbeat of these songs comes from singer and primary songwriter Kyle Pastor’s own personal and emotional process. Trying to determine where he fit in and what piece music had in his identity was a long road for the church-kid-turned rocker. These days, Kyle has settled into his creative passions, his role as a husband and a dad, and work as a creative director at his church. 


But even with that foundation and the sudden explosive growth of Archetypes Collide, Kyle is no stranger to anxiety and doubt. His process of pushing through? Community, solidarity, and acceptance of who he was created to be.
