Tackling addiction seems to be an ever-present theme with Bring Me‘s music and this new addition to their dysfunctional family is no different.
Lyrics with intent accompanied with a mammoth pack of intoxicating instrumentals – it’s all come full circle back to the Bring Me The Horizon we all know and love. Chaos inhabited with the devil, DiE4u is the next abbreviating tone from Bring Me – and is the next chapter post-POST HUMAN: SURVIVAL HORROR in 2020.
A bellowing Sykes screech matched with throttling synth and devastating drum kits kick off an adventurous return to a world of hope and anguish that was … actually not too dissimilar to POST HUMAN that was really, all about finding out when is it we’re free and that desirable itch for the cure.
Despite being a long way from the likes of Suicide Season, I do personally enjoy the direction the band took since That’s The Spirit in 2015. Although it careens the band away from the sovereign genres of hardcore and “heavy” metal (use heavy in the loosest of terms), it is still an emphatic turn of events that has drawn in a huge fanbase that do swoon over anything they create.
Oddly simply but all-the-more satisfying, I’m looking forward to more from the blood-sodden Sheffield quintet.
