Bring Me The Horizon Releases Video for “Anthem”

Posted: January 25, 2011 in Anarchy in the UK

The British metalcore band from Sheffield, Yorkshire that is Bring Me The Horizon has released a second video from their third full length album “There Is A Hell Believe Me I’ve Seen It, There Is A Heave Lets Keep It A Secret” for the song “Anthem”. BMTH has been together since 2004 and is about to head on tour with Pierce The Veil, We Came As Romans, and A Day To Remember for the Gamechangers Tour beginning in March and going through the month of April.

The band’s third full length album “There Is A Hell…” is one that for many of their fans was a big eye opener. The sound and overall vibe is very different than that of their previous two (Count Your Blessings, Suicide Season) but is still very much BMTH. There is a very dark sense to this album but in a more creepy “Adams Family” way rather than simply playing loud thrashy headbanging songs, vocalist Oli Sykes embarked on a mission to bring a new feel to the band and as always wrote brutally honest lyrics from the heart about the trials and tribulations of his past. This album also features new rhythm guitarist Jona Weinhofen who replaced former guitar player Curtis Ward in 2009.

The album includes hit songs like “It Never Ends” which reflects on ongoing struggles that lurk on and haunt the band, “Crucify Me” which speaks of the existance of both Heaven and Hell, however not the ones we think of in the sky and below our feet but rather everyday’s struggles and success, the mind capturing “Don’t Go” featuring guest vocalist Lights, “F**k” featuring fellow British rock singer Josh Franceschi of You Me At Six, and the ever so thrashy “Alligator Blood”.

Many of their older fans may have turned their nose up on this record while musically it may not be as heavy and fast as previous records but to me this album still delivers everything I loved about the band since I first bought the record “Suicide Season”. The video for “Anthem” captures the band in an abandoned venue where fans from outside begin to rush in and storm the building while BMTH puts on their infamous energetic metal show that leaves you exhausted from simply watching. Please enjoy the video for “Anthem” below as well as the previous one for “It Never Ends”, both were filmed perfectly and truly grasp the band and their overall message. Also be on the lookout for the Gamechangers Tour beginning in March.
