Featuring Side-D Etching!
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.
There Is A Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It. There Is A Heaven, Let's Keep It A Secret is, in many ways, a concept album. Frontman Oli Sykes vividly explores humanity's collective good nature and the celestial euphoria associated with love, lust, truth and desire; this is balanced by the darkness and evil that is likely buried deep inside all of us. Lyrically and musically, the album is the band's most honest work to date as Sykes lays bare his fears, weaknesses and anger, which is just one layer on this truly progressive and advanced third album. From the progressive opening riff and digital manipulation of choristers in the epic "Crucify Me," to the violins of "Don't Go," to instrumental track "Memorial," it quickly becomes clear that this is an album like no other.
