The link brings you to a home improvement website-- good one OP or should I say Tim Allen. Found the song either way, Architects are pulling a huge Sempiternal.

Just started listening to Ruin and I'm really starting to like it. Only song I know off Hollow Crown is Early Grave and that song is fucking awesome. Want to start checking out their newer stuff.

something to do with coding I think

im pretty sure you can fix it by if when putting the link in you start it at www. because it adds the http for you

@Imperv: the two albums between Hollow Crown and this album are really Alexisonfire-esque, if you're into that kinda stuff. Definitely finish listening to Hollow Crown though.

@Prime: I usually do that with sputlinks. It must be embedded deep in the coding and they can't fix that error, as well as the random 'r' being added every time you edit a list, maybe they've fixed that since the last time I've check.

I really dig this song, but Sam needs to step up his lyrical content. "Almighty fuck ups" is a pretty silly line. That ambient passage in the beginning and near the end really heightened the song, though.

It just sounds like Daybreaker but with more open string chugging. I'm gonna be so disappointed by this.

Band should be capable of writing long epic tracks by now, this is breaking no new ground. This is weak sauce compared to any Crydebris song

There is absolutely no substance to this song. There isn't any guitar work, it's just ambient passages over the top of boring riffs with generic chugging alongside the most cringe inducing lyrics the band has ever produced. The technical song writing they tried to bring back on Daybreaker has been completely cast to the way side in place of obnoxiously heavy breakdowns. Just fuck this band, everything they have made after Ruin and the Dead Swans split has been completely reactionary.

"No one notices us so let's dumb the music down, that's not good enough let's become radio accessible yeah we hate heavy music now no more breakdowns, oh fuck we just pissed off our entire fan-base and the album flopped let's try to please fans of all our completely inconsistent albums at the exact same time, oh wait no one liked our half arsed attempt at an album lets make the most heaviest album ever and prove all the haters wrong"

I dont understand how bands still constantly to fall into this trap of killing every shred of energy within a song to play something that has already been beaten to death and fucked in every imaginable orifice for the past 14 years.

Uh, I don't know about you, but this doesn't sound anything like a atheist. Atheist don't believe in God. This is clearly about someone of a faith angry that God doesn't give a shit about him.

Lyrics are still meh.

Actually I think this is pretty sweet. Riffs are techy but not annoying, synth/pad stuff is just haunting, and vocals are spot on. Personally not a fan of his message but lyrically he gets his point across clearly lol. I was a huge fan of Daybreaker though, and both of these songs feel like a step in the same direction of the heavy stuff from that album. Looking forward to this release for sure.
