Review

Once again is presented one of the numerous hybrids of US hard rock/ metal scene which I love. A record that is too hard rock to call it heavy metal and on the other side too metal to call it hard rock (just listen to "Satanic Dreamer" to understand). ARCHITECT from Memphis, Tennesse offer a really interesting compilation of songs that contain melodic parts combined with traditional heavy hard rock. In some way their sophisticated name is not irrelevant with the music and I would say that the spirit of RUSH touches their sound without saying that it's progressive. Overall, one of the most significant and rarest crossover LPs of US scene that lies on the same lavel with other legendary bands like GRANMAX, DARK STARR, CROWHAVEN, TRIPLE FORTE, GOLDEN DRAGON, LEGEND, ALKANA, HEYOKA, FULL MOON etc etc...
