Editorial Reviews

Brighton s ARCHITECTS UK just refuse to sit still and rest on
their laurels. While it takes other bands years to even write a
record, ARCHITECTS UK released The Here And Now, wrote
Daybreaker, toured the globe with their friends in Bring Me The
Horizon (Europe, UK, North America) and Parkway Drive (UK,
North America), they headlined the UK twice (December 11
and April 12) and played countless high profile European festivals
(Reading/Leeds, Rock am Ring/im Park, Nova Rock,
Hellfest, Sonisphere, just to mention a few). Right after wrapping
up the recording of Daybreaker they got back into the bus
to be direct support for Rise Against and played in front of over
10,000 people per night. Even though the acclaimed The Here
And Now got them daytime radio and TV rotation in their native
UK, the band felt it was time to shed their collective skins and
reinvent themselves with an amalgamation of their very best
elements. They felt it was time to make a bold statement and
that s exactly what they have delivered. Daybreaker is a
sweeping show of strength in terms of how intense, colorful,
dynamic and multifarious modern metal can actually be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Architects - Daybreaker May 27, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Daybreaker is the fifth full-length studio album by the British Metal/Hardcore band Architects overall, and their fourth since the current frontman Sam Carter joined the band.

When the band began, their sound had about an eighty-twenty ratio of hard and heavy music with a clear Math-Metal influence to light and melodic music with a more Post-Hardcore direction. Over time though they gradually shifted that ratio by about twenty percent towards the more melodic and commercial side of their sound with each new album that they released. Many fans and publications felt that the band had hit upon the perfect formula on 2009's Hollow Crown album and then the album which followed, 2011's The Here And Now, was a step too far (despite also being a very good album regardless)

With Daybreaker the band have in-part toned the melodic and commercial side of things down by several notches and made a more logical successor to the style found on Hollow Crown. That being said however, Daybreaker is still their second least heavy album to date and the band have also in-part taken things one step further than on The Hear And Now, as there is a lot of synth, piano and clean singing. Additionally, the album features guest appearances from members of Bring Me The Horizon, Deez Nuts and Stray From The Path.

Daybreaker is rarely as heavy as anything off of Ruin or Nightmares and at times is more melodic and mature than anything on Hollow Crown (save for that album's title track, which `Behind The Throne' is reminiscent of here) for example the clean middle of `Day Break' and the start of `Truth Be Told.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album March 23, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album exceeded my expectations in every way. Yes it's not Hollow Crown by any means but it shows a lot more maturity from the band and the lyrics, it's still hard hitting very technical metal but it sounds like the guys are much more in tune and in control of their sound than ever before. I give it 4.95 stars simply because Behind the Throne definitely felt like filler but other than that I thought every song sounded great, the lyrics are very political and very well written over all and as usual the bands sound is
huge, precise, focused, and intense. I definitely recommend this album it has some of the best Architects has to offer and some of the best this genre has to offer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely a masterpiece February 11, 2013
By Brandon
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I gave it 4 stars because it is definitely a great album that is hard to turn off but there are maybe 2 tracks that aren't up to par with the rest of the album. Other than that, Architects have definitely pushed the boundaries of their music by sort of infusing their Hollow Crown sound with their Here and Now sound. The guest vocals are superb. If you're a fan, Daybreaker will more than likely blow you away. My favorite by them so far.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not 'Hollow Crown' but very good December 19, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Sam carter is one of the best vocalist i've heard the last 4 years. When i first Hollow Crown I was blown away!! Saw them live at Lost Horizon in Syracuse June 2010. Phenomenal show!! This album leads off to that. "Here & Now" I felt like they were trying something new and different but didn't catch on as good. You'll enjoy "Daybreaker". Has everything but isn't as metal as Hollow Crown. Overall, great band!!
