Album Review: Architects – All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us

Many artists go years without recognition, even when the work they put out is solid. It’s hard to pinpoint why — some artists tend to have an immediate appeal while others have to work their asses off in order to get the same recognition. Let it be said however, that hard work truly does eventually pay off as one of Brighton’s finest bands, metalcore outfit Architects can attest to. After releasing five previous albums, it was magic number six, Lost Forever // Lost Together that finally saw them reach new heights with the band being propelled into the spotlight. A little over two years later, the anticipation was at an all time high for the bands newest album, All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us. With such high expectations, would the band be able to thrive under the spotlight or was it the shadows where they truly made their best music?

Let it be stated up front that instead of vying for a change in sound, Architects went the route of improving upon their most current style and sound. It would have been easy for them to aim for a more mainstream, rock-centric sound that many of the larger acts appear to be creating, but instead the fans have received an album that is heavier, darker and more politically charged than Lost Forever // Lost Together. A lot of the atmospheric and ambient elements that were featured on that album are still present on the new album. Sam Carter seems to be spitting venom on every track while his voice oozes with a rawness and emotion that’s rarely heard in the current scne. Whether its the lyrics like “Look at the fucking mess we’ve made / We sold our souls but couldn’t find salvation,” on the album opener “Nilhilist” or “‘Cause you can see it in their eyes / they don’t give a fuck / About what matters to us” on “Downfall”, or the ambient, melodic elements of the instrumentation intermixed with screaming guitars and melancholic synths, there’s an aura that absolutely makes this album a must hear.

The band even tries something new with the album closer “Memento Mori.” It’s an eight minute long roller coaster ride. Featuring dark, brooding electronics and ambient sounds with samples of Alan Watts, Architects have crafted one of the most memorable songs of their career, which is such a fitting end to a massive, image driven album. Listeners who were hoping for something different than Lost Forever // Lost Together might find themselves a little disappointed, but those who were hoping for the band to improve upon that sound should be ecstatic as they appear to have finally found their sound and identity. Providing a breath of fresh air in the metalcore genre that has become increasingly stale, they didn’t hold back with their newest album and have set expectations of themselves at an all time high putting them in a territory they previously couldn’t reach and making them a household name for years to come.
