It has been a couple years since BMA's flagship wrecking ball (both on and off stage), Found Dead Hanging disbanded and slightly less than that since the trudging, gloom-core stylings of Word as a Virus were put to rest with the passing of vocalist Shaun Luu, when he lost his tragic battle with brain cancer. It has been a long hard road for both of these Syracuse, NY bands, but we are proud to announce that the wrecking ball has been unleashed again in the form of Architect.
The main point of the Architect has been to keep it burly and heavy.
Picking up where both groups left off, Architect have harvested the strongest components of each band and honed their style into a new bulldozer, posed to rival any heavy band that stands in their way. The band is more focused and has left behind some of the confusing quirkiness of Found Dead Hanging and they have upped the momentum from the slow pace of Word as a Virus.
The result of the hardships, maturing and growth of both bands is this paramount, battering ram debut, All is Not Lost. The band head charges into a very blunt and direct attack on politic issues, religion, blind faith, trends, and Big Brother with its infringement on civil liberties, while paying homage to their fallen comrade, Shaun Luu. Complete with the explosive touch of producer Jocko, Architect's debut is an intense and inciteful listen.
