Release Date: 2010 | Tracklist

Review Summary: Summarizing, “There Is A Hell…” is maybe not the best album from British band, but still remains proper member of their discography. It connects aggressive guitars and screams with peaceful violins and piano just in a second.

It’s hard to find artists that changed more thank Bring Me The Horizon. They started from deathcore, and now they play something really hard to describe, cause their newest album: amo is the mixture of many things. From metalcore, through pop rock to electronic. Bet let’s remind one of their older records. The one thing is sure. Its title is short and easy to remember: “There Is A Hell, Believe Me I’ve Seen It, There Is A Heaven, Let’s Keep It A Secret”.

Orthodox fans say it was the last amazing album, but actually this is where someone that doesn’t like deathcore can start, cause in my opinion this album is way better than previous “Suicide Season”. And few months ago I could say that “There Is A Hell…” is their first amazing album, cause I just couldn’t stand deathcore, but now I can finally say, that I am fan of their whole discography. But let’s get back to the record.

Our today guest is a third album from Sheffield musicians, it was released in 2010 thanks to label Visible Noise. What is interesting, is that whole album was mixed my Skrillex, which obviously helped record to sound great. Bring Me The Horizon has always been of the most hated band in the history, and even though I can sometimes understand criticism, most of these voices is just pure jealousness. And this record definitely can prove some people, that Bring Me The Horizon is truly something special.

This is an album from band’s metalcore era, so of course for many listeners it can be just noise and nothing more, but from my experience I can only say that this is an issue of accustoming. If you give it a chance, maybe few more than you’ll start enjoying this kind of music.
Most of the time, this album is musically brilliant. Lee Malia and Jona Weinhofen (unfortunately the second one is no longer in the band) are giving phenomenal performances both very aggressive and slower ones. Mat Nichols on drums and Matt Kean on bass are also doing their job very well and finally the singer, Oliver Sykes. His screams are just perfect, I can feel pain in in, which is fully understandable, cause during writing this album Oliver wasn’t in good mental condition.

You can say it’s unnecessary to express feeling in that way, but believe me: it is necessary. Also, it sounds amazingly. And Oli Sykes is one of my favourite if not favourite singer and doesn’t matter if he screams aggressively or like on the newer records- sings smoothly.
If I had to tell about the best thing about the album, I would probably choose its ability to change from ridiculously heavy and aggressive to peaceful in few seconds. It’s the first time when BMTH was experimenting with orchestra. There are lots of violins and other orchestral instruments, which gives ridiculously good mixture. And luckily, we could experience live concert when band was performing with huge orchestra and choir. It took place in Royal Albert Hall in 2016 and it still remains the best concert I’ve ever seen. But I should go back to topic.

Lyrics are also mostly on point. It’s not just edgy kid that wants to destroy everything, as it was often on the two previous records. Songs like “Blessed With A Curse”, “It Never Ends”, or “Don’t Go” show more emotional and romantic side of Sykes. Furthermore, there are few moments when I produce magical things called tear drops. So, when Oli shouts: “It never ends” I genuinely believe him, that it never ends.
But I can’t say it’s the best BMTH album. The second half of the album, excluding “Memorial” and “Blessed With A Curse” sometimes weary me. And I’m talking mainly about “Visions” and “Blacklist” They don’t have anything, that can attach listener to repeating them over and over.

And this sentence is just pure cringeness. Review needs a lot of proof-reading.

I'm sorry but this is shit. Learn how to edit please. I am not pissed at the rating. I am pissed at how cringeworthy this review is and it comes across as a "mid-20s scene kid who never grew up to listen to actual metal" type of review. This is their best album probably. That still doesn't change the fact that they suck still.

Thank you for all your opinions, i really do appreciate all your feedback. Few things were misunderstood because of my English, which is not on a superb level. Actually, this was my first review in English, so i was a little bit stressed. I'm also not satisfied with this review as most of you. Have a nice a day and thank you once again for feedback!
