How did I discover them, have I seen them live, and what is next for them?
I discovered Bring Me the Horizon when I got a download of their newest album, That's the Spirit, and when I eventually got round to listening to in the autumn last year, I haven't stopped having it on repeat since. I wish I could see them live; I have seen clips of them playing live and the atmosphere looks amazing. I really hope they are planning to bring out a new album soon because I just love all their stuff. My boyfriend also bought me another album called Sempiternal, which I think is even better than That's the Spirit, and I listen to it on repeat a lot.
Bring Me the Horizon are a rock band from Sheffield who formed in 2004. The have received 4 Kerrang awards and released 5 albums, 2 extended plays, and 2 live albums. The band's name comes from the last line in one of the Pirates of the Caribbean films where Jack Sparrow says "Now, bring me that horizon".
Why are Bring Me the Horizon my current favourite band?
They are my favourite at the moment because I am loving very heavy music recently. I love how I can shout along to the lyrics and I seem to relate a lot to loads of the themes in the songs. My favourite song at the moment is Sleepwalking and always makes me smile whenever it comes on when I have headphones in and am listening to shuffle or Sempiternal. Sempiternal has definitely become my favourite of their albums and I can't wait to own more of their music or even some merchandise.
