If you wanted proof that metal is still alive and well in Sheffield, you needed look no further than this sold-out gig at The Leadmill. 


Architects were touring their brand new album (Lost Forever // Lost Together) which, for a metalcore release, contains more than your average measure of politically-charged material. The band have weighty issues on their mind and, during their set, vocalist Sam Carter made an impassioned plea for donations to Sea Shepherd – a marine conservation charity the band bring out on tour.


Drawing from six album's worth of material, a perfect balance of breakdowns and sing-along choruses went down a storm with the rowdy crowd – and at one point Carter even managed to persuade everyone to kneel on the floor before rising up into a sea of mosh. 


It's clear the band are appreciative of the support of their fans here in Sheffield – and when the crowd started up a chant of "Yorkshire! Yorkshire!" they went as far as saying they wish they'd been born up North!


It's great to see a homegrown British band ten years into their career and still enjoying the success they deserve.
