Architects (UK)


Architects, the eminent British metalcore combo, are finally coming to Finland after a painstakingly long wait. Winners of the Best British Live Act Award, Architects play their raspingly furious music with mathematical precision.

Their eighth album Holy Hell, released in 2018, shot up the charts like a bullet, and was chosen as the album of the year by many heavy metal critics. Holy Hell is gloomier than its predecessors, which comes as no surprise to those who have been watching the band closely. The album acts as a tribute to Tom Searle, one of the founding members of the band, who lost the battle to cancer in 2016. The devastation and despair followed by Tom’s death led the band to channel their grief into the most impressive album of their epic career.

This July at Ilosaarirock, Architects are sure to offer an unforgettable hour of apoplectic riffs, cathartic pomposity and uncompromising aggression – come hell or high water!
