The third TARLUNG album explores the dualism of man as builder and destroyer of worlds.

Facing the existential void we all become the Architect of our misfortune. But from all our failures we still might rise.

After collaborating with three different labels on the last two releases TARLUNG go for a 100% DIY approach on the third album "Architect".

"Architect" was recorded within a 5 day session at the DDP studios (Braunau, Austria), once again by sound engineer Lukas Haidinger. This time the intention was to get a more refined and richer sounding record while still retaining the raw power TARLUNG is known for.

Throughout the whole writing process, a bigger emphasis was put on the arrangement of the songs. While still remaining decisively sludgy, TARLUNG's focus is on melody and diversity: There’s more lead parts, but also more noise. More driving Stoner Rock, but also more bleak skeletal Hardcore. More upbeat elements, but also more despair and darkness.

"Architect“ is a meditation on rise and fall, grandiosity and misery. It is about exploring the boundaries of Sludge – while staying 100% true to the low-end growl vocal style, and the dedication to absolute heaviness.
