Today, ARCHITECTS are thrilled to share ‘Dead Butterflies’ – the third single to be taken from their forthcoming ninth studio album ‘For Those That Wish To Exist’.

Hailing from the windy, gritty city of Chicago comes Vile Cynic with their newest EP, agony. This is an intense listening experience that the metal heads are begging for. “ tools for the tormentor” comes out swinging and decimates the entire room. This maniacal and riff driven death mayhem is fueled by technical guitar playing, percussion insanity and the howls of their cynically wise “call it as i see” lyrical content. This song has killer dynamics, harmony guitars, and the instrumentation is incendiary. I don’t like to use that word, but it’s the only thing that comes to mind after listening to this for the thousandth time. I love the breakdowns, the beats, the lyrics, this is an aggressive fucking tune that will not get over.
