  • I was thoroughly disappointed with Suicide Season(SS). I thought Count Your Blessings(CYB) was pretty decent, but Bring Me The Horizon have changed their sound, and in my opinion it’s a change for the worse. First off, they changed the music aspect. CYB was nothing groundbreaking, but SS sounds pretty generic, like a toned down version of Johnny Truant or Norma Jean. Also, they throw in some pointless electronic noises, distortion effects, and jazz intros, to try to spice it up, but to no effect.

    But the worst change is the vocals. MY GOD! are they terrible. Skyes did an incredible job on CYB,with brutal growls and terrifying shrieks. On SS, his vocals are so one-note and bland. Also, his lyrics are pretty bad. Every song is about partying or something stupid. “We can’t sleep, it’s for weak people, We can’t rest til we’re ****ing dead.” I don’t mind bad lyrics in metal, but when you can understand them, and their this bad, it kind of ruins the music.

    Don’t get the wrong idea, I don’t mind progression in music, I actually want it. And BMTH have certainly progressed, but I guess SS is just not my cup of British tea(pun intended).

  • I can completely understand why fans of metal or bring me the horizon’s old sound could be disappointed by this record. BUT i will say im a fan of the older stuff but definatly in love with this record. i truely believe BMTH took a step up further from any band within the ’scene’ that feeds off cliques. where everyone tends to be doing the same thing, writing the same words, following the same trends – BMTH has done something completely off the map. i truely think think they just took all diffrent forms of punk and heavier music that influnced them, smashed it all together, and made Suicide Season.

    obviously oli’s vocals have taken a toll. i actually saw them live last night and he definatly doesn’t scream like he used to, even when playing some songs from “count your blessings”, he just can’t seem to do those highs anymore. which makes sense cuz those are brutal. but i think his newer vocals with some highs mixed in at times works. and as much as i love every track off of CYB, they did sound like just you’re average metal band instrumentally. with this record i think they took it up a notch, but in a slightly diffrent direction.

    for what the misfits did for punk rock way back when, i think BMTH has done for heavy music. its artistic, creative, innovative, and has in my opinion one of the sickest [like good sick] album covers ever. and oli’s writing skills definatly stand out, on some tracks more then others, particularly the title track. you can’t help but feel for him. the emotion that was put into the lyrics and everything instrumentally and vocally about that soung is just outstanding.

  • If you are one of the many people like my self who hated bring me the horizon, you need to give this cd a listen. When I heard the tracks of off count your blessings, i hated its generic wanna be death metal sound. This cd is completely different. The style is much different and much better.

    The Comedown: 4.5/5-One of the best tracks on the whole cd, very catchy and a good introduction to their new style.

    Chelsea Smile: 3.5/5-Ok, a little generic sounding but cool riffs.

    If It Was Written In Blood: 2/5-Pretty cool synthesized intro but very boring for the most part.

    Death Breath: 4.5/5-My second favorite of the whole cd. Fantastic riffs and intense vocals.

    Football Season Is Over: 4.5/5-Short, brutal, and funny. it has a great chorus part “PARTY TILL YOU PASS OUT, DRINK TILL YOUR DEAD. DANCE ALL NIGHT TIL YOU CAN’T FEEL YOUR LEGS.”

    Sleep With One Eye Open: 4.5/5-Very, very, heavy. One of the best tracks.

    Diamonds Aren’t Forever: 4.5/5-A heavy catchy track which delivers metal core at it’s finest.

    The Sadness Will Never End: 4/5-A heavy original sound with SUNG vocals, something bring me the horizon rarely has.

    No Need For Instructions, I’ve Read About Girls Like You On The Back Of Toilet Doors: 4/5-Very short but has an interesting jazz intro, then an insane breakdown into pure insanity, the heaviest track on the album.

    Suicide Season: 5/5-THE BEST TRACK on the whole album, and the best BMTH song ever. It goes in and out from melodic to heavy and has very emotional lyrics showing Sykes’s best writing talent.

    So again, if you used to hate them forget that count your blessings crap and BUY this. It’s hard to believe that the same awful band who played “Pray For Plagues” created this cd. Bring Me The Horizon have matured greatly and WILL get better.

  • I gotta be honest, the album wasn’t bad but I wasn’t too interested in it either. From a technical perspective, the album is well performed, but I couldn’t tell you who these guys are were over any other metalcore band out at the moment. There just wasn’t anything that I found remarkable other than the fact one of their songs were called “No Need For Introductions, I’ve Read About Girls Like You On The Backs Of Toilet Doors”.

    I recommend the album for those who’re actively involved in the metalcore scene.

  • Man, was I disappointed when I popped this into my cd player. When I found out that BMTH had a new album out, I was stoked. I didn’t bother listening to any samples online beforehand. I just went out and bought it. Since it was a new release, it was on sale for 9.99. By the time I got to the third track, I had to press eject. I eventually did listen to the entire album, but it really pissed me off. Yet another band who “matured” their sound, but for the worse (i.e Avenged Sevenfold, Born of Oriris, Everytime I Die etc.) To me it just sounds like a Norma Jean rip-off, another band who released only one album that I liked. “Count Your Blessings” was an awesome album. Not very inventive, but technical and brutal. It seems like on “Suicide Season” the band took a minimalist direction and kinda dumbed down their music. I don’t know, maybe they just wanted more girls to come to their shows, because it seems like all their lyrics are about is partying and banging. Hey! Maybe they should tour with Brokencyde. There are a couple moments on this album that I found myself nodding to, but for the most part I was pretty letdown. If you’re expecting another “Count Your Blessings,” you’ll be very disappointed. If you like bands such as Everytime I Die or Norma Jean, you might like it, however.
