The British combo - ARCHITECTS - have played themselves into the international metalcore annals with countless live Shows, an album discography in double figures.
On their ninth album, For Those That Wish To Exist, ARCHITECTS tackled some of the biggest questions facing the future of our planet. In the process, they expanded their signature post-metalcore sound with a few fresh influences from electronic sonic realms and added orchestral strings, horns and choirs with somnambulistic confidence.
With the follow-up The Classic Symptoms Of A Broken Spirit , ARCHITECTS proved in the fall of 2022 that they have remained an experimental band. The guys from Brighton, who continue to evolve with each release, presented on their latest album songs that have become more aggressive and harder again, but also more accessible. In his lyrics Dan Searle revealed his fears and dark thoughts, giving us a much needed understanding in these unpredictable times.
Atmospheric parts meet hard riffing and a skillful interplay between of shouts and clean vocals. The quartet is not afraid to integrate new styles into their sound beyond the typical genre boundaries. The band mixes classic metalcore with groove, industrial metal and electronic elements, among others, and creates a concentrated whirlwind of emotions, which is carried of by great soundscapes.
The Brits not only play clubs, but fill arenas worldwide and shaped the sound of an entire generation of metalcore.
