Bring Me The Horizon

Formed in 2004, this Sheffield, Yorkshire, England quintet took its name from a line in Pirates of the Caribbean and its sound from American hardcore and metal. Combining the elements of straight-edge hardcore, primitive '90s metalcore, and death metal, BMTH fused their own brand of crushing music that got the attention of the music industry. After releasing their debut album only in the U.K. in 2006, the band -- Oliver Sykes (vocals), Lee Malia (guitar), Curtis Ward (guitar), Matt Kean (bass), and Matt Nicholls (drums) -- was voted Best Newcomers by Kerrang! Magazine, and the media frenzy ensued. They quietly re- released the album in the United States a year later, but it wasn't until Epitaph Records released 2008's highly anticipated second full-length Suicide Season following their stint on the 2008 Vans Warped Tour that BMTH became a force in the States.

    Bring Me The Horizon

    Year: 2008

    Runtime: 40 min

    Fronted by a tattooed clothing designer and influenced by death metal, grindcore, and emo, Bring Me the Horizon aren't the average deathcore band. The group was formed in 2004 from the ashes of several Sheffield-based outfits, with the 2003 Disney film Pirates of the Caribbean serving as the inspiration for the band's name. 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 their debut EP, 2005's This Is What the Edge of Your Seat Was Made For. Upon signing to the higher-profile label Visible Noise (whose roster also included Bullet for My Valentine and Lostprophets), they reissued the EP to a wider audience. Bring Me the Horizon's full-length debut, Count Your Blessings, appeared in October 2006, with an American release following one year later courtesy of Epitaph Records.
