    Music News - 252nd Edition - Bring Me The Horizon

    Bring Me The Horizon - That’s The Spirit
    ‘True Friends’ is like the dark horse of the album; it doesn’t attract the same attention other tracks do initially, and yet there’s something about the passionate aggression in Sykes’ vocals that makes you want to listen over and over again. The song opens with his clean vocals and melodic line, followed by a simple drum sequence. In truth, it lacks the usual explosive, dramatic nature of Bring Me The Horizon’s music and with screamed vocals only featuring in the pre-chorus, you’re forced to focus more on each individual lyrics rather than just indulging in the blind aggression that many of their other songs allow.

    “Drown”, the first single after their acclaimed album, Sempiternal will be officially released on December 9th. If you look throughout the discography of Bring Me The Horizon, you almost saw this transformation coming. It took me a few listens to fully get into the track, but I had to understand that the band who made the vitriolic Count Your Blessings was gone.

    We were fortunate enough to see Bring Me The Horizon yesterday. One of the songs they played was “Doomed” off their That’s The Spirit album. “Doomed” is the first track on That’s The Spirit. It was described by Oliver Sykes in That’s The Spirit commentary that it was the first they wrote and the last they finished, due to not being able to get the lyrics to sound right. They considered it to be a ‘weird and crazy track that we all loved’. A bad experience that Oliver went through at the time of finishing up That’s The Spirit finally provided the inspiration leading to “Doomed” as we now know it; an eclectic blend of samples and sounds.

    Album rate: 8/10
