Architect Of Disease are a band from Poland that plays a very progressive and melodic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Open The Hearts" which was released by The End Of Time Records.
A very distorted, raw and melodic black metal sound starts off the album along with some grim vocals and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and some of the riffs also bring in a touch of doom metal and the solos and leads that are utilized demonstrate a great amount of melody, talent and skill.
A couple of the tracks are long and epic in length and when the music speeds up the songs start bringing in more of a raw black metal style along with a decent amount of blast beats and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some of the riffs also bring more of a progressive feeling to the recording while the songs are also in more of a modern black metal direction.
Architect Of Disease plays a style of black metal that can be raw at times while also modern, melodic and progressive at the same time, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes.
In my opinion Architect Of Disease are a very great sounding progressive black metal band and if you are a fan of t his musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Leviathan Prayer" "Without Divine Intervention" and "Devour The Sun". 8 out of 10.
