Editors’ Notes

The critically acclaimed British metalcore unit's second record, Suicide Season, released in 2008, delivers on all fronts demanded by the genre – high-speed death-metal guitars with hardcore mosh breakdowns, infernal wraith-screech vocals, hyper-active double-bass drumming and a hint of melody. Decidedly more in line with commercial mores than the band's debut, Count Your Blessings, the album is by no means watered down. For starters, it was recorded in a Swedish village, a fitting decision for a band so clearly influenced by the melodic death-metal scene of Gothenburg, Sweden (especially At the Gates). The closing title cut is as heavy as metalcore gets and "It Was Written In Blood," based on the suicide note/final poem of Russian poet Sergei Yesenin, has become one of the band's signature songs. "Football Season Is Over," with old- school guitar moves and a bus-flipping chorus learned directly from the Beasties' Licensed To Ill, is another great moment.

Customer Reviews

honestly people?

its called CHANGE get a life. accept it for what it is, not what they used to sound like. and trust me, there is still plenty of oli's unique screaming in here. he still hits amazingly high highs and low lows. ANYWAYS! this album is, well, godly. i sincerely love every single song, even more than count your blessings. and everyone knows how amazing that album was. but, they have gotten so much better, and the annoying recording quality is gone. so, now, the instrumentals can shine through, along with oli's amazing lyrics and vocals. break it down now? VOCALS/LYRICS: seriously, i drum and scream for my band, and oli is a god at what he does. everyone should seriously look up to him if they want to be a vocalist. period. he can do everything. hardcore yelling, death metal lows, and black metal highs. i seriously would do this guy if he would give me his skills. what a wonderful vocalist. the lyrics are good, but not amazing. "i know something you don't know?" kind of childish, but acceptable. they can be amazing though. especially at the breakdowns. i love his lyrics then. soooooo good. INSTRUMENTALS: heavenly. the drums are ridiculously difficult. i hate it cus i cant play any of these songs. [yet] :P but i love them cus they are amazing. so is ever riff on this album, it is more melodic than count your blessings, but heavier in a way as well. BREAKDOWNS: best i have ever heard. just listen to the one in chealsea smile or diamonds arent forever. you will understand. PRODUCTION: so much better than the last album. i can hear everything! wow! overall, a very solid metalcore release for 2008. im so glad they got away from deathcore [which i love], but it did not fit them. support this band, buy them, see a show. they are soo good. oh, and whatever you do, download diamonds arent forever... NOW! best song ever much? oh hell yeah.

In his words...

Oli Sykes did a short interview with Rock Sound magazine, and he talked about WHY the band changed. It wasn't to "please other fans" - they did it because they WANTED to. Oli states: "I think that every CD that we'll ever record will involve us changing our style." He also said, "We felt like the music we were doing was on its last legs, plus we've gone off that sort of music ourselves." If I was to recommend a song on this album, I'd recommend Chelsea Smile; it's very personal to Oli. And no, it's not about a girl named Chelsea! A Chelsea Smile is a type of torture that originated in Glasgow, called a "Glasgow Grin," and then became popular in Chelsea. What happens is your face is cut from your mouth to your ears, and then you are punched or kicked in the stomach or groin, and when you scream, your skin breaks apart, ripping open your face. After medical care, the scar appears like a smile. A good example is of The Joker in The Dark Night. Anyways, a decent CD, I'm glad they decided to mix things up. Although I did like Count Your Blessing much more!


I'm pretty sure this album wasn't out in 1901. but regardless, its a masterpiece. bmth has a more mature sound on this album. its a must have.

Fronted by a tattooed clothing designer and influenced by death metal, grindcore, and emo, Bring Me the Horizon aren't the average deathcore band.

Singer Oliver Sykes, guitarists Lee Malia and Curtis Ward, bassist Matt Kean, and drummer Matt Nicholls initially established their own label, Thirty Days of Night, to release...
