    The honest emotion, varying dynamics and avoidance of cliche up the record's potency, leaving you with the sense that this is how metalcore should make you feel. [Apr 2014, p.89]

    These are gloriously crafted anthems of defiance, imbued with dizzying emotional oomph and a near-chewable air of steely-eyed conviction.

    Architects have embraced change, and although they're still mindful of the sound that got them where they are, their refusal to be beholden to it makes Lost Forever, Lost Together one of their most exciting records to date.

    This album breaks new ground for a band that has already established themselves as one of the defining metalcore bands of this generation. Heavy instrumentals, hard hitting vocals and soft composition when needed makes this an overall effective album for a genre that has seen many cliches plague it. Expand
