Editorial Reviews

Heralded as one of the most anticipated albums of 2013, Bring Me the Horizon's fourth studio album, Sempiternal, is the defining sound of heavy music in 2013. Recorded with super producer Terry Date (Linkin Park, Deftones, Soundgarden) and mixed by David Bendeth (A Day To Remember, Paramore).

Bring Me the Horizon are back with their pivotal follow up to 2010's There is a Hell. Even with cascading riffs, powerful vocals, and bouncing choruses, Sempiternal enlists an underlining layer of trickery. Isolating these moments takes many listens, but inevitably adds incredible depth.

Sempiternal is Oli's crescendo. In an industry plagued by "chug chug's" and angsty teens trying to sound angry, Oli evokes the actual tone of the word. For instance, when he says "...Can You Fix the broken," or "...Throw Me to the Flames, Watch Me Burn," we as an audience understand, sonically, their sensation. The delivery and distortion of Oli's voice generates tangible visions of the lyrics. This furthers our attachment to the work because that "is how it would sound and feel." It's not sound for the sake of sound, but emotion for the sake of tone. You see hundreds of cliche lyric videos on youtube trying to sound mad, instead of harmonizing the words with their enunciation's. Oli confronts this concept head on and nails it.

A producer should always take bands in a new direction, in terms of sound that is. No one record should replicate another. The most meticulous engineered album can still fall victim to sameness. Fans identify this easily and see it as a sidestep or "b-sides." It's the subtle anxiety and confidence in the producer that creates something definitive. Terry Date (whose list goes on an on, including Deftones) has a particular style. Deftones are unique because they are heavy, yet incredibly transient. Their archetype of sound can put listeners in a trance, while at the same time explode. They're the only band to force fans to exist at an imbalance, or balance depending on how you see it. Sempiternal flirts with this concept on its sleeve.

I've never been a huge Bring Me the Horizon fan mostly because I'm not a huge fan of deathcore and the extremely heavy stuff but where there are good riffs and smooth and catchy melodies, I shall appear and take note. This record by BMTH is incredibly produced and overall, the instrumentation is impressive along with vocals that can be understood by the average music listener. I also appreciate Mr. Sykes learning how to sing clean vocals for a couple tracks because it really does sound good and creates a full, dense record with twists and turns rather than a straightforward, head-banging on every track record. I shall now do a song by song review with a few words to summarize my feelings towards the tunes.

1. "Can You Feel My Heart" 8/10 - An incredibly different way of starting a BMTH record, with synths and electronic instrumentation. This song didn't strike me as good at first but it has grown on me and now I can truly appreciate this song for what it is, an introduction to change. The vocals are very good on this track.

2. "The House of Wolves" 8/10 - A classic metalcore tune with harsh vocals and some catchy pieces. The headbanging commences on this song, I really like the lyrics on this track and the guitar riff is very catchy and cleverly simple.

3. "Empire (Let Them Sing)" 10/10 - One of my favorites on the record, the opening guitar riff is just so heavy and catchy, it makes me headbang. Just an overall great track with great vocals and strong instrumentation.

4. "Sleepwalking" 10/10 - Another killer track, I love the chorus, so much emotion within the story of the song, it has inspired me in more ways than one. I love this song, if there is a song just to download onto your ipod, it's this one.

I don't have to say much about each song or anything like that. All I have to say is I started listening to "Sleepwalking" and "Shadow Moses" because they had videos on YouTube. After I bought the album, I kept listening to those two songs and then kept easing in on the others. As the other songs grew on me, I was BLOWN AWAY. This is the first album I've heard by these guys and I've seen others say this is nothing like their old work. Some have said they've gone "mainstream". Where on earth do you hear this music on the radio? You don't. Therefore, they aren't mainstream. They have more production, but the screaming and intensity is still there. This is in all honesty, my favorite album in the past couple years. There just hasn't been a good album that has caught my attention like this one. I'd say buy it ASAP..

After eight years of peddling an abrasive, grinding deathcore sound, Britain’s Bring Me The Horizon return with their fourth full-length in 2013’s “Sempiternal.” And upon face value, it appears BMTH have not changed much with age, as this album is comprised mainly of fiery, thrashy guitar picking, pounding drums, throaty screams, and chunky breakdowns.

But once the surface is cracked, it becomes readily apparent that the quintet are actually now opting to sound more like a full-on metalcore band more than anything else. This influence is especially apparent in the riffs, which are now clearly indebted more to Swedish melodeath (a la At The Gates) than anything else. Also, there are a handful of melodic choruses to be had, here, as well. (And hey, they might not be, say, Killswitch Engage-worthy, but still…) And furthermore, the use of grinding blasts and deathly growls, two of the band’s standbys in past years, are now noticeably absent.

“Sempiternal” kicks off with a creepy, and startlingly melodic intro track in the form of “Can You Feel My Heart.” But this is then followed up by “House Of Wolves,” a fiery, intense, and aggressive metalcore chugger that leaves just enough breathing room (in its choruses) to be memorable, and packs in plenty of mosh-happy breakdowns for good measure, too; and “Empire (Let Them Sing),” another blistering and mosh-intensive metallic-hardcore number.

The rest of the album continues in a likeminded fashion to these openers, pinning just enough melodic fare against inexorable metalcore brutality. For example, consider “Sleepwalking,” a cut that might very well have more mosh pit-ready breakdowns, but is actually first and foremost centered around huge melodic choruses.
