Architects live wtih Stray From The Path and Make Them Suffer


 


With influences ranging from Hatebreed, to Shadows Fall, to Dillinger Escape Plan, Brighton, England's Architects play a complex mixture of metalcore, death, and math metal, laced with alternately violent and comedic lyrics.
After getting their state in 2005, Architects recorded their debut album, Nightmares, the very next year with a lineup consisting of twin brothers Tom (guitar) and Dan Searle (drums), Tim Hiller-Brook (guitar), Tim Lucas (bass), and Matt Johnson (vocals), but the latter was to be replaced on-stage by new frontman Sam Carter in January of 2007, during the last show of the band's subsequent tour.
Later that year, Architects recorded their sophomore effort, Ruin (introducing new bass player Ali Dean), and signed a worldwide deal with Century Media for its release in 2008. Their first American tour was next on the agenda, and saw the group paired up with Suicide Silence, Beneath the Massacre, and the Tony Danza Tap-dance Extravaganza, among other bands. Upon their return to England, Architects recorded their third album, to be titled Hollow Crown, which arrived in 2009. The band took its sound in a relatively subdued, post-hardcore direction on its fourth album, 2011's Here and Now, but transitioned back to a heavier sound the following year on Daybreak. The band continued to expand their sound, pushing things both to more extreme and ambient directions on their sixth Album Lost Forever//Lost Together, which appeared in 2014
