Best Alexisonfire Album By A Band Who Is Not Alexisonfire

Architects – The Here and Now

Architects’ prior release Hollow Crown was a satisfying hodgepodge of modern metalcore.  The album saw them straying further from their “mathy” roots while taking on chunkier riffs and melodic singing.  You’ve seen this dance a million times.  If you’re into that sort of thing done well, then you probably liked Hollow Crown.  And then this came out, the melodic singing is not only more prevalent – but it sounds almost EXACTLY like Dallas Green.   They’re layering their guitar sounds more.  Their tuning is no longer in the “Fieldy from Korn” ballpark.  Meathead breakdowns are almost nonexistent now.  They still have a tendency to just go balls out and let their techy muscles show(Alexisonfire was never all that technical to begin with).   And while the melodic sections are very strong, they still haven’t quite written a chorus like “This Could Be Anywhere”. Still, this is a nice surrogate.
