Bring Me The Horizon and their consequences cannot be understated. The kiddie choir is stupid. The chorus is bad. Really stupid song to experiment with low growls on. This band used to have riffs, man. Fuck.

heavy for the sake of sounding heavy doesn't produce quality. Ironic song or not, making a good song would have been a better clapback at the "haters". But I guess this stuff sells more ¯_(ツ)_/¯

@Wildcard - the mathy elements of Hollow Crown, Ruin, and Nightmares were influential to later bands in metalcore. Those are my personal favorite from them.

It’s hilarious how this band is always 5 years behind BMTH, eating the popular slop. They’re literally doing what Amo did, lashing back at their fans, using That’s the Spirit’s sound. Difference is, BMTH back it up with a decent album. This song is complete trash.

It's not that bad but kinda boring and the lyrics are terrible.

Used to really love this band and it's hard to watch them become a shadow of their former self when they used to be SO influential to the metalcore space as a whole.

That said - one thing Sam Carter has got completely right, is that it is fucking disgusting how people keep bringing up the death of Tom when they release something new (see "Tom Searle is rolling in his grave" comment above). People who do this are trash humans and should get in the bin.

Agreed Krill. I love this band but this just infuriating, fuck the chanting/cheering, fuck this petty song

The band has every right to change direction and do whatever they want. If they want to change their sound and follow trends, it may be easier financially for them due to losing an important part of their song writing crew. Whats fucking stupid is that they arent even making decent popcorn core or music. The band has the chops still to do things that arent this lazy shit.

People bitch about Architects, Parkway not being heavy anymore? I think most people would agree that the change of sound isnt the problem. Its the lazy uninteresting way both bands have gone about it. Both bands have capable musicians, both bands have shown they can write lyrics that arent liquid arse. If you change your sound make sure you can still be interesting

the song is a petulant response to the detractors of said albums. it's done ironically, which is fine if you can back it up, but this track is almost offensively bad.

Song is dull and uninspired and the lyrics are absolute trash.

Agreed 100% with the "youtube reaction metal" comments, this kind of stuff is just designed to be eaten up by people like Nik Nokturnal, it's so surface level. Metalcore really is in dire straits when half the new stuff I hear just sounds like something for youtube reaction channels to do stank faces at, rather than, you know, an interesting sounding song.

While She Sleeps seem to be competing with Architects for that title at the moment, and I'd argue that Bullet for my Valentine set the template for British metalcore bands to go from pretty good to utter dogshit.

Clever move from them, after their last lacklustre album this will make their hardcore fans and breakdown bros happy, and it sparks a conversation even amongst those that would just ignore "another" single from Architects.

They have certainly got a lot of attention, and that's the only aim of this song, so well played, Architects.

Song is just bland.

Make it heavy. Make it cliche metalcore. Make the lyrics so painfully straightforward every outlet that writes/reacts/reviews metal music will talk about it and promote it. And whoa! Will you look at that? Architects are doing a world tour the same day they made a song the metal community is talking about!?! The song is a straight-up PR move for their world tour.

It's not that good but honestly, it'll be fun for them to play live, and maybe for them, it was something just dumb fun and cathartic to write. I'll hope the album is better but man, they gotta address the lyrical drop-off they seem to be experiencing.

At least this chorus develops over 4 bars instead of using 3 or 4 note repetitive patterns, like on the last two albums. So there is imrpovement. They still end the chorus into the heavy riff with exactly the same trope though, "tell me what I belieeeeeeeeve"

Modern metalcore is copy/paste, literally in the studio sometimes. Its smart to move away from it because the genre is a dead man walking. However I want the tunes and sounds to back up the talk. If they believed in themselves they wouldn't care what the critics have to say. In interviews they spend half the time talking about haters, or being very defensive about songs we should like if only we were smart enough. Theyre just as hurt and angry as they say their fans are.
