ARCHITECTS OF A BROKEN DESIGN
THE GREAT REFLECTION
Architects of a Broken Design are a forward-thinking metal project whose two main members develop an unapologetically heavy blend of extreme metal eccentricities. This duo’s latest 10-track excursion is brimming over with volatile twisted compositions that demonstrate the tandem’s crushing heft with a multitude of progressive overtones, reminiscent of an amalgamation of The Red Chord, Misery Index, and Candiria while shards of higher visibility artists like Mudvayne and Glassjaw embedded within the band’s framework intermittently pop up. Odd shaped and hard to digest at times yet unquestionably vicious and technically sound throughout, THE GREAT REFLECTION yields an unsettling ride through dark and menacing modern metal terrains.
