BMTH release 'Parasite Eve'

2020-06-26 by Simon K. STAFF | 95 Comments
British metal band Bring Me the Horizon have released a brand new track titled "Parasite Eve". The song is a commentary on the COVID-19 pandemic and brings its message using a mixture of electronics, rock and metal akin to the styles used on their 2019 album, AMO.

The track can be heard below.

probably in the minority, but I think this & the previous single, Ludens, are the perfect culmination of the BMTH sound. Interesting electronic production, tastes of metalcore, and pop choruses. love it, looking forward to the next tune.

I dont like Ludens, but somewhat agree with your take on this. I definitely can't say it's the perfect culmination, but I think they're going to get there and am glad they're sticking with this direction.

latter day BMTH is so much better than Early BMTH - Later BMTH knows what it is and does it so well, early BMTH is vocals that sound like a deaf kidding getting beat up

I LOVE this so much. They're doing a lot to keep metal fresh. I'm so sick of hearing people bash this band because it doesn't sound like generic deathcore anymore.

really love this Industrial Metal direction they are taking, seems like "Amo" Combined with "That's The Spirit" and "sepiturnal". Both this and Ludans are bangers, looking forward to BMTH8. Also one thing we can all expect when the album drops is a toxic soundoff page (it is a tradition with BMTH at this point)

Good song overall, but these guys need to learn to flow better between the electronic parts and the rock/metal parts. Both this and Ludens feel kind of choppy because the transition between the two sounds is too abrupt. But I do like the direction their style is going.

Yeah, on first listen it did sound too disjointed, but like Ludens, it grew on me pretty fast. The style changes may still be a bit too abrupt, but I like this electro-industrial rock direction. Heavier than most of Amo, but not quite like Sempiternal or TTS either.

definitely something different/unique. i can't tell if i like it or hate it, especially because of the intro minute. what i will say is that the song really picks up, and even has a nice lil breakdown near the end that doesn't feel forced. plus it has a hook that i can at least say wont be leaving my head anytime soon

this is ACTUALLY not so bad. The chorus is good and the electronics are quite well put. But there is something about the whole stuff that seems weird

this will probably be hard on Oliver when they perform live.... he cant even perform the easier Amo songs decently

Yea this may be the best thing since they released sempiternal but the bars not that high with this lot. This just feels like enter shikari but less interesting and with less charisma and charm. Sykes is actually tolerable as a vocalist here even though he cant sing for shit. The sneeze thing was fucking stupid

Oh man I was hoping for much more with Mick Gordon on board. I still feel their Sempiternal / There is a Hell era really blended the electronic sound perfectly. Their new stuff just feels like it's missing something... not a bad song, just kinda forgettable.
