Official press release: Groningen (Netherlands) metal outfit The Architect have recently joined forces with Geert van der Velde (Shai Hulud) who relocated (back) to the Netherlands 2 years ago to pursue his studies after stepping out of full-time vocal duties for Shai Hulud. The Architect was formed out of the ashes of Dutch hardcore/metal veterans Revolt earlier this year (2005) and had quietly been rehearsing and playing local shows with 'fill-in' frontman Rene Smit frontman of Dutch hardcore/metal renowned band Instil. The Architect joined up with Geert in September and recently played their first show together with Life in Your Way in Groningen. They have been actively playing out since and are currently working on new material for a full length album - tentatively to be recorded in 2006. A live MP3 of The Architect with Geert on vocals (2nd show) can be found here.
