The Hollows – Sky Architects – Post Rock/Math – Denmark!
So on last Thursday’s run the soundtrack was The Hollows from Sky Architects. I was excited when I saw this new release the other day. I knew that I had listened to this band before and had enjoyed their work. The album was really good somewhat different from what I expected but enjoyable none the less. When I went to research the band this morning I discovered that they were NOT who I thought they were. These guys have an s on the end of Architect! Sky Architect is a heavy prog quintet from the Netherlands. While Sky Architects is a four-man Post Rock/Math band from Aarhus, Denmark!! Ok so here is the geograhy geeks moment. Where is Aarhus in Denmark.
Aarhus or Århus (Danish pronunciation: [ˈɒːhuːˀs] ( listen)) is the second-largest city in Denmark and the seat of Aarhus Municipality. It is located on the east coast of the Jutland peninsula, in the geographical centre of Denmark, 187 kilometres (116 mi) northwest of Copenhagen and 289 kilometres (180 mi) north of Hamburg, Germany. Aarhus’ inner urban area has 261,570 inhabitants (1 January 2015), the municipal population is 326,676 and Eurostat calculates 845,971 inhabitants for the larger urban zone.
Ok so I don’t think I ever knew another city in Denmark outside of Copenhagen! Well you can learn something everyday can’t you!! But now back to Sky Architects….
SKY ARCHITECTS are a post rock band from Aarhus formed in 2006 by Stefan FAST, Thomas LASSEN, Benjamin GRANEBERG and Steffen RASMUSSEN. The group, inspired by metal, pop, post rock, and soundtrack music amongst other genres, has been recording and touring regularly since that time and after a couple of smaller releases created their first full length album in 2012 called ‘The Promise Of Tomorrow’.
