2018 highlight: British metalcore band Architects experienced a tumultuous two years following the untimely death of founding member and musical mastermind Tom Searle. Sylosis guitarist Josh Middleton was originally brought in to play live with the band alongside Adam Christianson, but became an official member in 2017, having proven himself more than worthy of the spot.

When the band set about writing the difficult post-Tom album Holy Hell, Middleton’s contribution cannot be underestimated – it’s an astonishing piece of work. Taking those emotionally-fuelled new songs to the stage has proven just what a powerhouse duo Middleton and Christianson really are, too. A very well deserved win.
