Staff review by
"The Architecture Of Oppression" must probably be a school example of where melodic death metal and symphonic/melodic black metal meet, then cross and eventually sprout a new branch of melodic extreme metal. This being said and as a result of that, Against The Plagues manage to sound extremely tight and yet incredibly catchy. And let me tell you, despite being not that hyper-original and thus somewhere sounding quite familiar after all (which is not necessarily a bad thing), this band is burning with variation, freshness and rhythmic appeal.
