Default Bring me the horizon - that's the spirit

Well.. I haven't bought a new album in ages and to cut a long story short, I heard a track by this band a while ago and thought 'you know what, I like this ****...' subsequently bought the album....it's the bollocks, personally I prefer the heavier tracks... Throne, Avalanche... but to be honest I think this is their stab at becoming more 'mainstream' so some of the tracks are a bit poppy and soft but having not listened to any of their previous albums that is only a guess.

This is from their first release, and their first couple albums were pretty much just this, so yeah, their sound has changed considerably. I can only listen to so much deathcore before it becomes boring, but if I'm in the mood then early BMtH hits the spot. But I just can't get into their later stuff. So boring.

I'm not big on any of their early stuff, but this album was a new low for them imo. The transition into radio rock is cringe worthy, and just thinking of lyrics like "true friends stab you in the front" has me laughing.

This album has bummed me out. The obvious Melodyning that was used to give the appearance of a vocal performance is disappointing.

And you laugh at me for liking Dragonforce.
