After 2011’s ambitious but slightly unfulfilling The Here And Now, the UK’s premier tech metallers, Architects are back already with their fifth album, Daybreaker. And it’s really fucking good.
After the discordant chimed beginnings of opening song, ‘The Bitter End’, the album builds and builds until the jarring siren riffs of ‘Alpha Omega’ make me want to learn some sort of martial art – maybe all the martial arts – just so I can roundhouse dropkick a tree. With my head. Every day.
