Quietly by Mouth of the Architect
Released: Jul 2008
Fundamentally rooted in metal, Mouth of the Architect's moody atmospherics are heavy in a different sense. The pensive bleakness of their introspections (averaging about seven minutes apiece) is loaded with weighty, melancholic subjectivity, ranging from 2008's economic crises ("Hate and Heartache") to coming-of-age emotions ("Guilt and the Like"). But the starkly beautiful passages underlying the pained vocals somehow create hopefulness in their cohesion; check out a poignant appearance by Julie Christmas on the tender "Generation of Ghosts" for further reading.
