Bring Me The Horizon - There Is a Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It. There Is a Heaven, Let's Keep It a Secret (Review)

Bring Me The Horizon's latest addition being There Is a Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It. There Is a Heaven, Let's Keep It a Secret. Bring Me The Horizon is probably famous for being the most recognised deathcore band with their singer Oli Sykes, being famous for his "scene" style back in the day (he doesn't adopt that look anymore to my knowledge). But now their albums have progressed from deathcore to metalcore and that being a good thing or not is left to their fans. Personally I still quite like Count Your Blessings but this album is quite neat on its own. Everything seems less heavy but more coordinated. The mixing is better and the general quality of the sound is better. Now they also using some synth and also features another artist for a female vocal position (lights). The album like I said sounds less heavy and probably now suits the usual kind of people who enjoy metal. Still all screams but the screams have changed to a more hardcore than metal sort of scream, this is not what I like, but his sort of scream isn't to bad so I am not hating on it. As since their old guitarist left, replaced by an Australian guitarist from I Killed The Prom Queen, the songs seem less technical, but they have become more melodic and have a real nice sound to them. Lyrics in this album seem more personal to Oli and actually have meaning with the many references to Christianity now in the album, I wouldn't say that the band now endorses religion, but more that it sounded nice and emotive in the songs, a turn from their usual lyrics of dark sounding songs/partying. The drummer has progressed and has improved as well which is quite nice. So the style has changed greatly but still has that Bring Me The Horizon flare to it.I have seen Bring Me The Horizon play live a month or so before this release, and they do bring a good show, playing all my favourites like Pray For Plagues they sure get the crowd going and getting them really into it. Also Oli jumped into the crowd and I was able to grab him. Well to say I really enjoyed their show, was a great band to see.

Ouch. My ears. I like the orchestra sound to it but that singer needs to work out a few things. I can't tell if he's going for a hardcore scream or a metal scream, but he's failing at both.

If I ever get even mediocre, let alone "big time," I swear I'll put out a cd titled "Big Assed Name For An Album" simply in honor of this post and this Bring Me The Horizon album.
