Good song, as is each heavy song on the album. The ambient tracks are a bit of a turn-off but their pretty great as well.

oli actually sounds better than usual. he doesnt sound like a fucking dog anymore. and song is
ok. sorta boring. not really sure what to think about this album so far.

yeah, actually I was just gonna say Oli's lows were pretty good. And someone on YouTube mentioned that Oli stopped doing the false-chord technique and starting using the fry technique.

i thought Oli was for sure going to ruin this song.

I was wrong, he actually didnt sound half bad.

This is quite a bit better than I thought it would be. Vocals were passionate enough and the breakdown was integrated into the song well. Album may prove to be more than just average if it's consistant.

Good song, nice to see Oli isnt forcing has growls anymore, not as low but they fit his vocal style.

I really hope he doesnt sound like that on the next BMTH album cause this style with high pitched screams on this song is not suiting him well

He forced his screams so much, especially his growls. He was tearing his vocal chords apart, I like the new vocals because he's screaming within his range more now.

I thought oli sounded pretty bad too, but so does drew on 'Outsider Heart'. I think its the production.

The way oli screams on this song fits the part well imo, it's a nice change up from sam.

One of my least favorite tracks off the album. Sam's voice is perfectly good, I dont know why they feel the need to include extra singers sometimes...just dont feel like they add anything to the songs.

^well considering those are the bands last two albums, that doesnt surprise me.

"Still haven't heard a riff that compares to basically anything on Hollow Crown"

Josh Middleton is not the new permanent replacement. He's just filling in for their tour.

Josh is way too skilled to become their full time guitarist, also it would probably result in a massive change of sound in Architects' music if this did happen.

ChuckyTruant
May 25th 2012

15707 Comments


Yeah agreed. Well idk what being skilled has to with it. Have you heard Nightmares?

Too good for Architects I mean, coming from a Sylosis fanboy, though.

Yeah, enjoyed it but Ruin is my favourite Architects release.

Come on Chuck, Ruin kills Hollow Crown with ease.

Never understood why most users think it's their magnum opus.

ChuckyTruant
May 25th 2012

15707 Comments


For me it's

HC - 5
Nightmares - 4.5
Ruin - 4
THAN - 3

So they are pretty close

Architects with Sylosis-esque riffing would probably sound awesome as fuck.

I wish Sam had his Ruin-screaming range back. He had some pretty sick screams on that album. Just listen to Low and tell me he didn't sound ballsy as fuck on that song.

I've pretty much decided that I don't really like this band besides like 2 songs and that will probably never change. Haven't listened to Daybreaker yet but it's probably not even worth it.
