The Architects Of Guilt
The Architects of Guilt, The Famine’s sophomore Solid State release, will hit stores on February 15th. It is the follow up to the band’s critically acclaimed debut, The Raven and the Reaping (2008).
“The Architects of Guilt is not a sing-a-long or a feel good record; it’s the death rattle and dying breath,” explains bassist Jon Richardson. “The Famine is not here to win popularity contests, simply create metal, red in tooth and claw.”
“The music has become faster, more technical, even abrasive and discomforting, trading sheer aggression and energy for the lifeless sweeps and mechanized beats that have come to dominate and dilute the genre. The lyrics forego empty threats and skip the subtleties, calling out the deceit and duplicity of our leaders, and the decay next door masked by a flaking white picket fence and a familiar chemical scent.”
