Bring Me The Horizon are currently one of the biggest bands in the active rock scene. But back in the early part of the century they were angst ridden boys from England and their sound was deathcore. BMTH have changed a lot over the years, when they formed in 2003, the band played thrashy, breakdown-studded songs influenced by the screaming, slashing sound of American metalcore. Gradually, the group began incorporating electronic passages, acoustic strumming, ominous keyboards and orchestral elements into their music, and the band became all the more popular for it. Yet, despite their experimentation, BMTH have remained undeniably rooted in metal.
Bring Me The Horizon's first three classic albums - Count Your Blessings (2006), Suicide Season (2008), and There Is a Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It. There Is a Heaven, Let's Keep It a Secret (2010) plus 2004 EP This Is What the Edge of Your Seat Was Made For - will be reissued on vinyl in August 2016 courtesy of Epitaph Records.
Debut Count Your Blessings is chock full of what fans have come to love from the band: breakdowns, massive riffs, time signatures, tempo changes, immense vocals, shredding solos and blistering percussion. But the experience of working with top producer Dan Sprigg (lostprophets, Cradle Of Filth) also brought a new found maturity here as well, a more solid direction and focus in songwriting and structure.
