Bring Me the Horizon, ‘There Is a Hell Believe Me I’ve Seen It. There Is a Heaven Let’s Keep It a Secret’ (Epitaph)

christopherschultz // October 29, 2010

On their third album, these dizzying British metalcore chemists swing erratically in an effort to shake genre conventions, flirting with dystopic Max Headroom stutter, electro gloom, and tender indie-folk cuddles. But frontman Oliver Sykes is a consummate metalhead, channeling the sexy carnival barking of My Chemical Romance and sensitive shadow-lurking of Avenged Sevenfold. He’s also far more uninhibited (especially when he fakes shooting himself). Time will tell: Is this bizarre smash-up the future of metal or just Generation Y’s Pitchshifter?
