Bring Me the Horizon - Suicide Season Review
by Dave Jordan
Bring Me the Horizon's sophomore full length album Suicide Season proves to be anything but sophomoric. Suicide Season sees the band put forth their best music to date, bucking the trend of the infamous "sophomore slump" so many other bands have experienced.
Abandoning the somewhat unimaginative metalcore sound featured on Count Your Blessings, the band opts for a more thrashy sound that still features their brutal melodies and penchant for the breakdown. The band's influences are certainly less obvious on this album than on their first one, which sees the band successfully attempt to cultivate a more original sound. Songs like "The Comedown" and "Diamonds Aren't Forever" maintain the band's trend of producing violent, intense music, while songs like "It Was Written in Blood" and "The Sadness Will Never End" showcase a more moody, emotional side of the band. All things considered though, this is a thoroughly intense offering that is sure to keep people's interest. Pick this one up.
For Fans of: As Blood Runs Black, Red I Flight, Misery Signals.
