Architects @ Roundhouse – London
Brighton boys Architects have come a long way. After playing at Camden’s KOKO last year on March 14th, they are back exactly a year later, to play a sold out show at the Roundhouse. There’s a sense of nostalgia in the venue as the metalcore quartet grace the stage, emphasised by vocalist Sam Carter’s reference to last year’s KOKO gig. The band start as they mean to go on by kicking off with ‘Broken Cross’ and ‘The Devil Is Near’ – both from their most recent album Lost Together//Lost Forever – the latter being a powerful song with a thought-provoking message against animal cruelty, which is highlighted by Carter’s passionate and emotive delivery.
