Over three long years ago, many predicted that Architects’ headline show at KOKO on the eve of the release of The Here and Now was the start of an album campaign that would catapult the band into mainstream greatness. That didn’t happen, and the band have spent several years working on rebuilding the momentum that got them to that point. Now they’re back at the venue where that journey began at – will history repeat itself? Gavin Lloyd was on hand to bear witness.

Thrash Hits’ Favourite Gigs of 2013

December 12th, 2013

2013 thrash hits favourite gigs of the year

Part and parcel of being opinionated music lovers is that we go and experience lots of music in its natural habitat – on a stage – and then we decide how good it was.

It’s a rarity but that’s why some here have to name several before deciding upon their Favourite Gig of 2013.

This is the seventh album from the New Yorkers and Anonymous threatens to take Stray From The Path to the forefront of their scene. From the first memorable refrain in ‘False Flag’ of, “F. E. A. Are you listening,” Andrew Dijorio spits various lyrics detailing the entire gamut of anti-establishment-oriented views with righteous punk fury. The next song is called ‘Badge & A Bullet’. You get the vibe and it’s as convincing a political statement as you’re going to hear this year.
