Music Review: Screaming is alarming

Staff Writer

One of Britain’s most popular metal bands Bring Me the Horizon has released its third album “There Is a Hell Believe Me I’ve Seen It, There Is a Heaven Let’s Keep It A Secret” earlier this month with Epitaph Records.

The band is made up of lead vocalist Oliver Sykes, lead guitarist Lee Malia, bassist Matt Kean, drummer Matt Nicholls, and rhythm guitarist/keyboardist Jona Weinhofen.

Bring Me The Horizon is hardcore metal, and most of the songs on the band’s new album are pure screaming.

This hardcore way of expressing a song makes it difficult to understand the lyrics.

The lyrics for every song are available to search online and the band does have a MySpace page.

After reading the lyrics, it is easy to see that the words go perfectly well with the genre of the band as a whole.

Most of the song are angry and depressing, matching with the title of the CD.

There are many references made about death.

This new album is the perfect new addition for those who can appreciate this specific genre of music, similar to As I Lay Dying and Asking Alexandria.

For those who do not like the hardcore screaming bands would be advised to not listen for the whole album is quite intense.

In fact the album can be frightening for listeners who are not expecting to have their ear forcefully screamed into and are used to Coldplay or Cartel.

It is also not music that would be listened to for brightening up the mood, for the lyrics are not happy in any aspect.

Apart from the screaming and the anger, the band has good instrumentals. This aspect can be determined within the first few seconds of the first song “Crucify Me.”

Bring Me The Horizon’s first stop on their 2010 U.S. tour was in Detroit on Wednesday.

They will play Oct. 28 at the Fox Theatre in Pomona and Oct. 29 at Club Nokia in Los Angeles.
