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.
This Is What The Edge Of Your Seat Was Made For is the perfectly named first EP from Bring Me The Horizon featuring four auspicious tracks chock full of the killer riffs, hellish grindcore howls, and thrashy breakdowns that the band has become beloved for.
