Ken Goodey Bought this album and the other Kommandant record, 'cos they were on offer from those splendid ATMF people! I like both on first listen, but need to listen a few more times before I can comment fully, which could take time as I have a very full 'dance card' when it comes to music.

Spoonbräu Kommandant lost in agressiveness to perform an album in a more martial mood. From the very first notes you can easily imagine yourself in a black and white war-documentary. Favorite track: Onward to Extinction.

christophe herbin This album makes me think of an illustration of Alfred Kubin (; rough, hypnotic, inevitable and hopeless! Favorite track: Rise and Fall of Empire.


Buy Physical:
It’s a quantic challenge anytime Kommandant are ready to perform their new metal aggression to the scene.

“The Architects Of Extermination” doesn’t make any exception and it’s representing a milestone in the growth of the band and the evolution of the Black Metal experience.

The hardest matter in talking about the Kommandant musical form is not by discussing about the patterns but to try to analyse the methods in forging an atmosphere that has a strong ability to surround the listener with a familiar but at the same time so pristine feeling.

The industrial and martial mood is in fact so deeply merged in to the chords of the metal riffs that it sounds reactive and inappropriate to evoke the term of the industrial music. We’re mostly talking about an industrial black metal attitude with a threating martial atmosphere.

The guitar riffs have a strong heavy impact, a large manifestation of the tones, but the incredible personal feeling shows on the guise and terminal shape of the Architects’ monument. Strength, unity and enthralling magnitude is the outcome of this new powerful creature.

Artwork is another elitist craft of italian artist Francesco Gemelli (Abigor, Spectral Lore, Janus, Urna…)
