A defunct American hard rock/ alternative rock band. Originally formed in Arlington, Texas as Supplication in 1993. The Supplication name was quickly changed to Embodyment sometime in 1994. In the earliest years, they mixed brutal death metal with hardcore overtones. Their mid-period was supposedly more focused on mid-paced deathcore. Eventually, they adopted a more lightweight alternative rock and hard rock direction. They gradually became more lightweight with each release after their 1998 debut "Embrace The Eternal". Their "1993-1996" compilation includes their early brutal death metal demos. Embodyment was active between 1994 until 2002.
