The Lucid Archetype was birthed in quiet Northern Arkansas in early 2015, the child of founder Matt Bernal, and originally known as Only The Strong. With a concept burning in his mind, Bernal wrote and recorded the bands first release, Origins. The 8-track EP is a concept album following the rise and fall of mankind. Interested in the idea of adding vocals to his work, Bernal began holding 2-phase auditions in which prospects had to successfully write lyrics that captured the feel and idea of a song, and later do a trial recording.

ZILF consists of two disturbed gentlemen turning their intrusive thoughts into eclectic, genre-hopping musical chaos.
