From the outset you'll get the brutal bflat gallops and Sam Carters gutteral screams. As you'd expect, there is no shortfall in heavy high tempo metal slightly tinged with a technical element quickly becoming the style that all young bands are trying to aspire to. The thing that the takes the music in a new direction is the fusion of some incredibly sweet, almost ethereal melodies, be it vocally or atmospheric through guitar and underlying key section.

Anyway. On with a breakdown of the album.

1. Early Grave - it's quite apparent the guys have once again released an album with an opener that conveys everything that's going to follow. Heavy riffs, stop start guitar licks, high end tech with a few sweeps and shreddy lines, melodic vocals. 10/10
2. Dethroned - definately an ode to the sound which they presented on nightmares and ruins with lots of discord. Stop starty. Beautiful vocals throughout, this is the track that has you realize how incredible Sam is switching from screamy vocals to soft melodies. 9/10
3. Numbers Count For Nothing - primarily a song for the drummers out there. Blast beats, tech kick techniques in places. The guitars continue the crazy lines. 8/10
4. Follow The Water - song of the album for me. Nothing but stabby guitar throughout. Drums lock down the timings of everything, without them you'd get lost...I mean LOST. The ending to this song is the anthemic chorus that'll make every listener fall flat on their back in disbelief. Very rarely can 'metal' strip all it's components back and present you with sheer beauty. It's been done on this track. 10/10
5. In Elegance - more the easy listener track. Slightly slow tempo track.

Architects are a relatively new band for me - I'd heard the name bandied around and caught snippets of previous release, Ruin - and although this is their third album, it's undoubtedly the one the band will most want you to hear. Theirs is a punishing, unrelenting take on metalcore with flourishes of Converge-style atmosperics, bludgeoning beats and a smattering of soaring, cleanly sung vocal lines. There's innovation aplenty, and a real sense of ambition, and it's this combination, coupled with the conviction with which they deliver the whole thing, that carries Hollow Crown into the realms of something special - both within its genre and beyond. Difficult to pick any stand-out tracks as such, this is an album best listened to in its entirety. That is, if you have the required endurance levels...

Brutal, ear-splitting exhiliration.

Architects have well and truly outdone themselves this time.
They've created a huge, anthemic, brutal, emotionally uncompromising album that could well go down with the greats of metalcore (Converge - Jane Doe, Botch - We Are The Romans, etc)

Every single member of the band has stepped up their game to a huge degree.
Sam's vocals are the most obvious improvement, and he's the glue that holds this album together. People have noted his near one pitch scream as a flaw for the most part, but the one pitch he's chosen is the perfect one to convey what he's trying to say. He sounds like a man on the edge, very reminiscent of Jacob Bannon at times, maybe not in sound, but certainly in feel. There's a whole lot of emotion and passion in Sam's vocals, and no pretenses. Just sheer, brutally honest emotional expression.
The guitar parts are much less technical this time around, but this is definately not to their detriment. The songwriting has improved to no end as a result of less gratuitous technicality. Where the songwriting on their first 2 albums was mostly average, Hollow Crown is nigh on perfectly written from start to finish, there's barely a note out of place.
There's plenty of variation too. They go from beating BMTH at their own game with chugs and dischords in certain tracks, and they reach heights of Meshuggah-ish glory on a few tracks, such as the opener and first single: Early Grave.

Reading's Outhouse studio has its sonic signature all over this album too. The mix is truly a feast for the ears. Maybe a bit too much clipping induced during mastering, but the album's breakneck agression is definately ramped up by the productioon.

To sum it up, this album is one of the finest metalcore releases ever, and it shows that us Brits have still got it in us to be brutal.
10/10

Architect's third studio album, 2009's Hollow Crown, sits at an unusual crossroads in the band's career and yet has the honour of being the breakthrough gateway through which the band gained a large share of its fanbase.

The album is largely a departure from their heavier, more technical records, which the band have since described as `Dillinger Escape Plan Worship Records,' and yet is nowhere near as accessible as the album which followed it, 2011's The Hear And Now.

Hollow Crown walks the path between both styles; featuring clean vocals prominently, few blasts and relatively straightforward songwriting when compared to the older albums, yet there are still a fair number of complex and intricate sections, plenty of very harsh vocals and a much more metal guitar tone than the album which followed it. Hollow Crown is in fact constantly winning praise for its guitar tone, which has been described as perfect on numerous occasions, especially in the British Press.

The album is of a strong and consistent quality; there is no filler and no weak tracks to spoil the experience. My personal favourite tracks are `Follow The Water,' and `Every Last Breath,' but you can't really go wrong with any of them.

Overall, Hollow Crown is a good album and even if you liked their old stuff this shouldn't be too commercial for your tastes and conversely, if you liked their new album but hate mathcore and extreme metal, Hollow Crown shouldn't be too far out or too extreme for your tastes.
