Mouth Of The Architect

Mouth Of The Architect is another band in the so-called atmospheric hardcore realm, the genre essentially spawned by Neurosis and in recent years expanded upon by the likes of Isis, Cult Of Luna, and others. Almost to a band, the style is similar though with just enough individuality to avoid cloning, and that is the case here as well, as MOTA has the drawn-out arrangements and balance between ambient moments and crushing heaviness down pat.
