Have a listen
Hello the Southerner here.
So after listening to latest album from Sheffield based Bring me the Horizon I am glad to be bringing you my review of this album and how it has changed the whole perspective of the band compared to their past albums
So where is the Oli we all used to know that used to that was growling and screeching away back on there first album Count your blessings. The same guy is nowhere to be heard on this album instead he shows us his surprising pipes which makes it so much easier for us all to sing along which is perfect for a shower singer like my self.
This album was a risk to the band as they have had a lot of eyes on them since there release of Sempiternal in early 2013 (THIS IS SANDPIT TURTLE). This band could of just made a sempiternal 2.0 but did they. No, they created this album which is greater catchier and just a lot more what I would call radio friendly compared to there past titles. Come on who would hear Pray for Plagues on the radio, imagine the parents when they have a child in the car the surprise.
This album has key themes of the depression, getting past ADHD and kicking the away the drugs and becoming a new band with a completely new sound for those of you that are still a lover of the older albums then this one may not be for you but for this album has kept the same lyrical feel throughout but the sound of the band has just matured and became a bit more tame but you can bet that Oli will still be chanting for Circle pits and still be asking for more F*ing Mosh so we will still be looking forward to that.
Thanks for reading Southerner out
So after listening to this spine tingling album from Los Angeles, California band Letlive I wanted to share my thoughts on the album and how it made this band different to the generic post hardcore that I have heard
Letlive exploded onto the scene with there first album Speak Like You Talk followed by Fake History, but this album seems a lot more refined although Jason Butler still blasts his frenzy and gut wrenching vocal range across all the tracks on this album.
This album rarely steps away from the highest gear with each song maintaining the pace and the middle finger attitude that the band has had since 2005, Jason Butler still keeps in the spotlight with his extremist behaviour and not being afraid to step out the box beyond the typical post hardcore sound.
The themes of this album stick to the finger to the system attitude with rulers that do so by controversial means, out dated racial attitudes and oppression felt by those without as much as they once had.
So when you move up north the accents are astoundingly vast and difficult to understand so moving into a flat with 5 people from the North was difficult to say the least
Time to get my translator out
Bread roll or Teacakes?
