As if you couldn’t love this song any more, the boys from Architects have proved they are leading the way in the UK heavy music scene by showcasing their talents away from the screams and heavy riffs we know and love them for, by offering fans (new and old) a completely stripped back rendition of their absolute, killer track ‘Doomsday‘.
The piano reprise was produced by Dan Searle and frontman Sam Carter‘s vocals show just how good this bloke is with his melodic singing. For those wondering the pianist is James Beckwith. The reasoning behind the new rendition isn’t a cash grab or anything like that, but simply to show the emotion behind the song’s powerful lyrics which were co-written by guitarist Tom Searle before he passed away in 2016 after a long battle with cancer.
Thanks for all the kind words towards this version of Doomsday. It felt like this song needed a rendition that exposed the sadness behind the lyrics and @samarchitects performed it beautifully ❤️

I’ve said it many times before but honestly some of the most beautiful lyrics I’ve ever read. This version really shows that as well. Thank you @danarchitects 🖤

We had a big chat to the band backstage at UNIFY this year about the song, it’s meaning and how it has managed to become an anthem for fans who are experiencing the same emotional roller-coaster the band went through with Tom’s hidden battle behind the scenes. Take a listen and drift away.
