Bring Me the Horizon - Suicide Season
The story of Bring Me The Horizon is one where many beginning bands dream of. With only one mini album in their pocket they released their full-length debut album which was well received by the press at that time. They even won the Kerrang Award for best newcomer that year. What followed was a year full of touring, alongside Killswitch Engage, Bleeding Through and Aiden, and writing their sophomore album called Suicide Season.
 
Well I really don’t know were I must start with this album. I’ve been listening to this album for almost 2 weeks in a row and I’m still not sure about the verdict I should give these fine lads. The album starts with a drum beat that could have come from an Enter Shikari album but shortly after the start it’s washed a way by a brutal start of the rest of the instruments. Clearly not an intro you would expect. Within the first two songs we’ll see two different sides of Bring Me The Horizon. There’s that brutal side that destroys anything that gets in their way but there’s also the subtle one that gives you time to catch your breath every once in a while. It’s probably the mix of those two that keeps it interesting to me.
 
It’s pretty obvious a lot of people expect a lot of this album. The title is rather strange, the artwork is quite intense and they let Frederik Nordstrom (At The Gates, Dimmu Borgir) produce the entire album. In which he did a great job, not only did he create a wall of sound that even blows away your deaf grandpa, he also touched the album with some industrial like electronics which give the album also a little boost. The backside of this wall of sound is, that after listening to this album, I’m glad it’s finished. It makes me feel bruised, battered and even sometimes gives me a headache (I know I should turn the volume down).
 
Unlike the music on Suicide Season the lyrics are not of high quality. The topics of the songs are the things that the band has to deal with every day. At least that’s my guess. The only thing is that I expected much more quality that would fit the music. Finally I’d say that Bring Me The Horizon created an intense album that certainly deserves a spin. Lyrically I would mark them emo, which matches their outfits. Musically it's too easy comparing them with the average emo band.
