With influences ranging from Hatebreed, to Shadows Fall, to Dillinger Escape Plan, Brighton, England's Architects play a complex mixture of metalcore, death, and math metal, laced with alternately violent and comedic lyrics.
After getting their state in 2005, Architects recorded their debut album, Nightmares, the very next year with a lineup consisting of twin brothers Tom (guitar) and Dan Searle (drums), Tim Hiller-Brook (guitar), Tim Lucas (bass), and Matt Johnson (vocals), but the latter was to be replaced on-stage by new frontman Sam Carter in January of 2007, during the last show of the band's subsequent tour.
Later that year, Architects recorded their sophomore effort, Ruin (introducing new bass player Ali Dean), and signed a worldwide deal with Century Media for its release in 2008. Their first American tour was next on the agenda, and saw the group paired up with Suicide Silence, Beneath the Massacre, and the Tony Danza Tap-dance Extravaganza, among other bands. Upon their return to England, Architects recorded their third album, to be titled Hollow Crown, which arrived in 2009. The band took its sound in a relatively subdued, post-hardcore direction on its fourth album, 2011's Here and Now, but transitioned back to a heavier sound the following year on Daybreak. The band continued to expand their sound, pushing things both to more extreme and ambient directions on their sixth Album Lost Forever//Lost Together, which appeared in 2014.

Stray From The Path

It is no coincidence that listeners of Stray From The Path will often have a difficult time confining them to a specific genre. The Long Island outfit, has made it a point to remain unpredictable, intricate, and intelligent. Listeners can expect their Sumerian Records debut 'Villains' to surpass the gratuitous and/or contrived music that is all too common today, and instead perform articulate songs that refuse to compromise their precision, honesty, and genuine desire to impress. Expect "Villains" to arrive in stores everywhere May 13th!

Make Them Suffer

Hailing from the most remote capital city on the planet, Perth sextet Make Them Suffer have been honing their razor sharp blend of frostbitten black metal, fiery hardcore and gothic misery since 2008. Partnering with global heavy metal powerhouse Roadrunner Records for 2012's critically acclaimed debut, Neverbloom, the band hit the road with the likes of Northlane, Bleeding Through, Job For A Cowboy and Thy Art Is Murder to spread the nightmare throughout Australia, Europe and the UK.

Now in 2015, it is time to draw back the curtains on Make Them Suffer's brand new album Old Souls. Created in the shadows over the last year and tended to by a who's who of heavy music producers, with Jason Suecoff (The Black Dahlia Murder, Trivium), Joey Sturgis (Emmure, Asking Alexandria), Forrester Savell (Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus) and Roland Lim (Make Them Suffer - Neverbloom, I Am Zero) all getting involved, Old Souls sees Make Them Suffer expanding their sonic universe and exploring new territory without sacrificing the vicious metallic attack that first drew fans across the world to them. Whether it's the furious blasting of Threads, the mournful cinematic dirge of Timeless or manic piano signature piercing the thunderous breakdowns of Scraping The Barrel, Old Souls is the evolution heavy music has been waiting for.
