Exclusive Track Premiere: Mouth of the Architects’ “Sharpen Your Axes”
Atmospheric, desperate, and totally crushing: those are the phrase that come to mind when listening to Mouth of the Architect’s new album, Dawning. “Sharpen Your Axes,” the third track on the album, exemplifies this vibe: you might expect a song with a title that refers to “axes” to be some kind of battle metal anthem, but you’ll find no such thing here. “Sharpen Your Axes” slowly builds a sense of dread before exploding in a fit of rage, sadness, and pain. It is, simply put, beyond intense.
MetalSucks is proud to debut “Sharpen Your Axes,” which you can stream below. Dawning comes out on June 25th via Translation Loss Records. Pre-order it here. The band is currently in the midst of a MetalSucks-sponsored tour with Intronaut and Scale the Summit; we got to catch it this past weekend, and Mouth of the Architect were absolutely AWESOME. Get their remaining dates after the song stream!
