rikm Ominous in mood and striking in it's execution, "The Architects" is a fantastic release by Randal Collier-Ford that fully displays the depth of his talent and the scope of his vision.

An excellent collection of finely detailed and textured work that thoroughly engages, "The Architects" inspires repeated listens and deeper immersion by the listener, offering greater rewards the further you dive into it.

Richard Cheesman A refreshing take on dark ambient on this excellent label. Brilliant dark sounds, eerie rhythmic elements all add to this more experimental release. My favourite track is a gradually shifting dark pulse monster which grips you and does not let go. Favorite track: The Return.

Randal presents us the first album in the Trilogy

The Architects consists of 8 evolving tracks with a mechanical touch to each one. This album is the product of deep theory, ageless echos and murmurs of voices not heard in countless millennia.

By use of ritual techniques and unconventional sampling, Randal Collier-Ford takes us to his world of a union between the old and the new. This is an original take on Drone vs Sound Design, leaving enough room on the album to explore both concepts fully, from empty rooms of pure sound sampling and bowing techniques to tracks with bass driven drone fused with distortion and drum hits from the abyss.
