This English group has an intriguing trajectory, marked by certain stylistic choices that almost sank their career before paying off once they’d sorted out the genres. While still the standard-bearers of an aggressive metalcore with songs boasting a more melodic post-hardcore soul, Architects have long since evolved beyond their more technical and convoluted early compositions to allow the more accessible choruses to breathe. The tragic loss of guitarist Tom Searle in 2016 after a fierce three-year battle with cancer did not spell the end of the British band led by drummer Dan Searle, his twin brother. Architects turned the grief into a source of inspiration and relaunched themselves better than ever with their eighth album, Holy Hell in 2018. For Those That Wish To Exist is the second album recorded by the band since the death of Searle (with Dan the sole remaining original member). The pain and rage that roared through Holy Hell and helped them mourn have mutated into a kind of despair fuelled by a very gloomy observation about the inability of human beings to save the planet and take up their responsibilities. Committed to various environmental defense movements (Architects are closely linked to the Sea Shepherd organisation), the Brighton combo delivers an album that does not directly attack the institutions in place, but is more like sincere self-criticism, taking into account what each of us should have done before blaming others. The message is delivered with a massive guitar sound fused with electronic ingredients, making Architects’ sound more accessible, grandiose (and even cinematic) than ever. While still rocking the beefy riffs (Animals), the group fully embraces its melodic side in Black Lungs and Giving Blood with choruses braced by synthetic layers that wouldn’t be out of place in Linkin Park. Without sounding industrial, those omnipresent keyboards (Dead Butterflies, An Ordinary Extinction) occasionally evoke the work of countrymen like Enter Shikari, proof that the group is utterly of its era. So it’s no coincidence that Winston McCall, singer of Parkway Drive (the two bands share a label) drops by for a vocal in Impermanence. More surprisingly, Mike Kerr’s (Royal Blood) excellent vocal in Little Wonder shows how much more porous the boundaries between the genres are than might be believed (Simon Neil, singer of Biffy Clyro also show up for a howl later on the album). The old, more radical group is long in the rearview. Whoever decided to flirt with post-hardcore and catchy choruses made the right call. Far more accessible than in the past, Architect’s music will reach an increasingly large audience rather than bringing back older fans lost several albums ago. That’s a winning bet given the catchy aspect of the new songs. Architects were already a staple of melodic metalcore. They’re well on their way to becoming one of the genre’s undisputed leaders. © Chief Brody/Qobuz

The Golden Age of American Death Metal

An often rejected, parodied and misinterpreted sub-genre of metal, the fierce death metal has nevertheless succeeded in garnering a significant following over the decades. Arriving in the 80s, the genre continues to evolve; from its early pursuit of the ultra-violent to its more recent incorporation of aspects from more mainstream genres. Let us look back at the origins of death metal.

Alice Cooper Doesn’t Run from Danger

The Alice Cooper story is, first and foremost, an extraordinary tale of “split personality”. Like something straight out of “The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde”, singer Vincent Furnier surrendered to the domination of showman Alice Cooper. But by his own admission, the man who always speaks of “Alice” in the third person in interviews remains a simple, completely normal guy in private, far from the stage where he enacts his excesses and provocations. Throughout a career stretching over 50 years, there is an evident streak of schizophrenia in his many stylistic changes. While we credit him with the invention of shock rock, he has ventured into almost every genre with varying degrees of success, from pop to nascent hard rock, with forays into heavy metal, new wave and industrial…

Back in Black: AC/DC in all Their Glory

With 50 million copies sold, Back in Black is the second best-selling album of all time just behind Michael Jackson’s thriller. Who could have imagined that AC/DC’s seventh studio album would pick up so many awards considering their charismatic lead-singer Bon Scott’s premature death after the release of Highway to Hell. The album marked the end of their first chapter but the beginning of their second which fans of the Australian band today continue to relish…
