Brighton's Architects are one of modern metal's most reliable and consistent acts. Back with their highly anticipated album 'All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us' they may have returned with a familiar sound; but have they taken it to the next level?
Black Peaks are one of the most interesting bands in post-hardcore and metal music today, and Statues is a whirlwind of different styles within and without heavy music.
