"... sees Mouth of the Architect reach for spacier and more progressive territory while also retaining the elements of their sound that they’ve become known for." - Decibel This sixth album from Dayton, Ohio post-metal outfit Mouth of the Architect follows more than three years after Dawning, the band's last release. In the intervening years the group's lineup has changed, bringing a new focus to adventurousness, to moving forward into previously uncharted musical territory. Path of Eight is a concept album about the afterlife based on a story by founding member Justin Watkins. "For this record, the writing process was very different. We have always had loose jams that we elaborated upon and edited into songs, but this time was different in that we didn't want any restrictions on ideas ... the record layout is a story that sort of developed as sounds and themes were coming together. So we recorded it all live in our practice space ... the live tracking really brought out a sound and feel we had been shooting for on previous records, because it allowed us to sound like what we sound like live. That was something we've never done before." -Mouth of the Architect

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
