Reign of the Architect Interviews and Features
Below are our features and interviews with Reign of the Architect.
An effort five years in the making, Reign of the Architect is now nearing the official release of "Rise" through Pitch Black Records. Based in Israel but featuring musicians from other parts of the globe, the multinational project will drop its debut album on April 16th (May 14th in the US).
To get a taste of the group's crazy death-prog-opera mayhem, Metalunderground.com will soon be premiering a sampling of songs off "Rise," so stay tuned for further details. In the mean time, guitarist and band mastermind Yuval Kramer go in touch with us to explain how the ambitious project came together.
Covering a wide range of sounds and styles, "Rise" features musicians giving their all in everything they do. While explaining how the album came together, Yuval said: "When we write music I always push myself and the musicians I work with to the truth. To that raw emotion, looking for the exposed nerve and let it scream for you. Letting each of us be honest, naked and exposed in front of the microphone. Some takes finished in tears, some in smiles, some with bleeding fingers and sore throats and without it, it's just not worth it.”
Putting saw raw emotion into an album necessitated some interesting setups in the studio, with Yuval commenting, “weird things happened here, not all of them were fully clothed.” Get the full scoop on "Rise" and the history of Reign of the Architect below. More...
