The Arkitecht Mexico City, Mexico

The Arkitecht draws a fine line between progressive music and metal, taking both currents even closer by blending contemporary forms of metal with atypical progressive approaches.

Besides, the influence of classical and contemporary orchestral works feeds the music with a whole new sound that redefines symphonic metal in many ways.

Track Name: Hyperstructure (live)
Lay on the feeling,
Your heart will lead you;
What you’ve been seeking
Awaits inside you.

A new strength will arise from the crevices of broken eyes,
And if tomorrow’s vague, trust the spirit in your brow.

Every vein in my neck
Pumps furious blood,
Voltage runs along my skull,
Sweat draws a watery blind on my face
My dry mouth burns
I don’t feel my hands,
Behind my shadow the unknown whispers my name!

Shock waves piercing into my spine, I close my eyes,
My soul seems to recognize these hidden dreams,
All human drama begins to disappear
Before lucidity strikes.

A weightless mind
Floats pleasantly,
Above my body that’s no longer mine I get a taste of the whole,
I can perceive the essence of our being.

Higher, I feel the planet breathing on my chest,
All creatures flow in a rhythm,
I can die knowing.

In the core
Of my pain
Knowledge grows,
Brighter conscience filling my soul!

Leaving my body behind,
My spirit pictures the splendor of life on this Earth!

My mind is vibrant,
I know this has just begun!

Light and darkness always have been one.
Light and darkness always have been one.

Ignorant of a destination carved within,
Trust your sight, dark is light as you and I are one,
We’re all just one!
Track Name: The 20th Century Feast (live)
War, technology and oil
Have brought pollution, decadence and greed;
The more we take the more we fear,
The earth surrendered to our lust for gold!

Slaves of our voracity,
Progress has crippled our capacity;
Forever trying to simplify,
We complicate, we mystify
The word disposable defines our creed!

Debt, our only currency,
Constantly chained to damn economy;
Let’s feed our dreams with bank accounts.
Worship the icon of the modern age!

Chains! The Twentieth Century destroyed our faith!
We’re chained to fear!

Even though I know it’s wrong
I don’t want to sacrifice,
There’s a part of me that’s comfortable here.
In these niceties I drown,
I’ve got everything I want,
But my inner voice keeps whispering ìJust let it goî.

Whatever we might do, we stand alone
Feasting on our own flesh we won’t last long

It’d be hard to recognize,
All the damage, all the lies,
Why would I want to observe the product I’ve become?
If I have to pay a price
Why redeem my faulty life?
I’ll take everything, for here and now is all I’ve got.

Whatever we make up, we stand alone
Shadows on a wall aren’t the real scene

We must break the Chains!
The Twentieth Century debauched our age!
We conquered all!
Leaving the earth profaned, our garbage spread!
I can’t believe it hasn’t been enough!

I don’t know why I was born
But it’s been so short a ride,
If I died now I would leave a worthless legacy.

I guess comfort isn’t much,
If compared to what it costs,
Should I sacrifice or should I turn on…
…My new plasma screen?
Track Name: Crimson Pain (live)
Though I tried to keep her out of sight
She was captured late at night.
On the wall she scratched a scream,
By the door she left her tears.

In my head I heard her crying
For I knew what she would bear,
There was nothing I could swear,
I still saw her faceless stare.

Next day I found on my doorstep
What I always tried to save,
Vanity’s beloved face
Dyed my hands of crimson pain.
Track Name: Elation (live)
Hooked up into the network
May seem as lobotomy,
Free wares without restrictions
A perfect anarchy

Some say is simulation,
They say I’ll never be me

My real life is clogged in rules
That limit my imagination,
My feelings of Elation.

Some say its masturbation,
They must ignore what it means

One password and then a screen
Into an infinite diversion,
Away from complications
An ocean of Elation

A powerful technology,
The numbness of your mind
Experience life by typing keys
Away from social rites

I get immediate response
I surf around the globe
The web is my Elation
Track Name: Blackout (live)
s I wake silence lets me wonder through my mind,
Darkness falls, showing me the questions never asked.

Eternity, longer than my lifetime can foresee,
Ages of creation melt into the sea.

We have sought extinction, have we not?
Can I watch it all collapse and do no more?

Long ago, we were in communion with the world,
How did humans drift so far from cause, from home?
We assumed the world belongs to us.

I’m just a man, thrown into existence by the gods.
Blind and helpless, left alone to fear and roam.

We have brought extinction, have we not?
Can I watch it all collapse and do no more?
This seemed so far away,
The future makes me wonder,
Will all be gone into The void?
Track Name: Through Broken Glass (live)
Youth, endless sea of doubt,
Flow, you will find
Paradox, your birth mark
The road ahead is cruel but you must never resign

Everybody has a tag behind their back
That make them part
Of a crusade against their kind,
A kind that’s owned,
Owned by trends, the trends of creed
That you don’t need
In you I see what I am not
I cannot recognize my thoughts in my own keen.

And I wonder,
Will you have a glance
From up high?

The universe conceived in fragments,
A view through broken glass.
Rulers in our own lost confinement,
It’s time to…

Segregation fits us all,
We stride against the wall,
And watch for flaws instead of merging with the crowd;
That makes us strong and fight the punish we allow.

And I wonder,
Will you have a glance?

The universe conceived in fragments,
A view through broken glass.
Rulers in our own lost confinement,
It’s time to awake

To awake
Come, forget, dream on, follow the line
Track Name: Children of the Gods (live)
Children of the gods, the gifted ones,
Born of sun and moon as keepers of truth.

Failure, defeated balance!

Wars are fought to keep our holiness,
Evil decadence, the price of our loot.

Symphony of agony ever we compose,
Gluttony, our disease, swells through the world,
Larceny, conspiracy, we can do it all!
Our empire will collapse.

Balance is broken,
Killed the treasure meant for thou to guard!
Seeking our nature,
Errand children must strive to reconcile

Long we’ve waited for the fated end,
Still, survival is a primitive desire,
A dream of mine
But it’s is just too late.

Ignorant of the past
We are bound to harm again,
To conquer whatever’s left.
Innocence is transgression,
No one can claim they don’t partake;
The utter truth is within.
Forests on fire, oceans are higher, still we inquire
Who is to blame?

If there’s more than I see
All my faith lies in you.
If there’s no future, be done,
There is no time, not for us, no time left!

If ever I release my wrath,
Thou shalt depart in fright!
Thou hast shaped an awful scene
Within my sacred womb!

Children of the gods, the gifted ones,
Born of sun and moon as keepers of truth.

It’d be hard to break the chains,
It’d take courage to abandon dismay.

Balance is broken
Killed the treasure meant for thou to guard!
Seeking redemption,
Errand children must strive to reconcile
Beauty forsaken,
There’s still time for men to come about.
Children of Nature,
Time has come to mend thy soul!
