Bring Me The Horizon: you may have heard of them Bring Me The Horizon: you may have heard of them. Bursting onto the metalcore scene with debut EP ‘This Is What The Edge Of Your Seat Was Made For’ back in 04, it wasn’t until second full-length ‘Suicide Season’ dropped some four years later that the quality of the band’s output finally matched the plaudits and hyperbole routinely heaped upon them. Last year may have brought the interesting, yet obviously stopgap release of remix album ‘Suicide Season: Cut Up!’, but when it comes to this, BMTH’s third album proper, the question on everyone’s lips is: ‘Where do they go from here?’In an attempt to head this one off at the pass, the unveiling of ‘There Is A Hell, Believe Me I’ve Seen It.
As a band, Bring Me the Horizon have been on a consistently upward trajectory, adding new elements to their metal core offerings in an effort to stand out from the rest of the pack in an interesting way. On their third album, There Is a Hell Belive Me I’ve Seen It. There Is a Heaven Let’s Keep It a Secret, the Sheffield band’s hard work pays off.
A frequently startling and ambitious third LP from the young kings of British metal. Mike Diver 2010 Bring Me the Horizon’s opening gambit, the This Is What the Edge of Your Seat Was Made For EP, was an uncommonly good debut. At the beginning of 2005 it left me breathless, and promptly earned itself a near-perfect review. Fast-forward five years, and they’ve experienced their share of amazing highs and crippling lows.
