If you thought that Architects‘ incredible show at the Lotto Arena in Antwerp was a step up for the band, then the result of their Amsterdam show the following night will leave you gobsmacked. Who’d have thought that Sam Carter and co. – who only hit club-calibre levels two years ago – would make such a big leap in such a short period? Not many people. It shouldn’t come as a surprise, though; new album Holy Hell is one of 2018’s best releases, and live it translates into an emotional tearjearker from start to finish. Natasja de Vries captured the band’s biggest Benelux headline show to date.
