Heavy hitters, Architects, have released another track titled “Downfall” off their upcoming album, All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us. Their earlier released songs, “A Match Made In Heaven” and “Gone With the Wind,” correlate with the “Downfall” really well in terms of tone and sound; Setting up for what is turning out to be one of the most cohesive efforts they’ve had, much like Lost Forever // Lost Together. Conceptually, we are given a politically driven song with lyrics like “So cast your votes, watch them shed their skin. Every snake has its price.” Much to Architects nature, they create songs that are not only some of the best in metalcore, but also takes a stand an important matters.

Hear Architects New Track “Downfall”

Lyrics: “They want all for one and none for all. I want to be there to witness the downfall. They’ll only sell us out once our backs are turned, and we’ll keep paying the price until our lesson is learnt. So cast your votes, watch them shed their skin. Every snake has its price. If the money’s on the table they don’t think twice. So cast your votes, watch them shed their skin. We are paralysed. But there are none so blind as those who will not see. What’s it going to take to get us to stand up? ‘Cause you can see it in their eyes, they don’t give a fuck about what matters to us. Another faceless figure, an empty silhouette. They’ll line their pockets and leave us six feet deep in debt. So cast your votes, watch them shed their skin. Always out for blood, praying on the weak. We can count on them to paint the future bleak, but still we’re standing by whilst they bleed us dry. We are paralysed. But there are none so blind as those who will not see. What’s it going to take to get us to stand up? ‘Cause you can see it in their eyes, they don’t give a fuck about what matters to us. So enough is enough. ‘Right’ and wrong it’s all the same to me. Thick as thieves as far as I can see. They are leeches all, but still we’re standing by whilst they bleed us dry.”
