Mostly, Architecture Of A God could best be described as melodic heavy metal with a strong current of hard rock groove and the twists of progressive metal.
After these things, other elements stand out such as the harmonious vocal arrangements, the keyboard play that adds color and sometimes duels with the guitar leads, and the richness of the melody and groove that gives many of the songs a true AOR feeling.
