Just a week ago, Bring me the Horizon released their 6th album “amo“. What do you think about this new work?
When I heard the first single MANTRA, I noticed that things were going to be different, and it made sense, because the quality and energy of “That’s the Spirit” would be difficult to beat.
I understand that this album more Pop, more Electronic, more Commercial… Not everyone will like it. Particularly, I was quite shocked the first time I listened to the whole album, but after a while I found the essence of BMTH.
As an amateur musician, there are times of pure creativity and other times when things just don’t come out. The advantage of being in a band, where everyone has a voice, is that when someone is missing musical skills, others are able to rebalance it. In “amo“, Oliver Sykes (vocals) and Jordan Fish (keyboard and programming), pull out the gallons to get the job done.
In my opinion, it’s not a bad album, it just doesn’t sound like BMTH.

Bring me the Horizon, a british band founded in 2003. Their beginnings with dark voices had to evolve to a “softer” side.
This change was forced, because his singer Oliver Sykes gradually lost his voice. For some people, I’m sure that this modification, as well as in the general sound of the band, wasn’t well received. However, for others like me, admire their latest album. The production of That’s the Spirit is a MASTERPIECE, where ALL the songs have a place in our ears.
As a curiosity, rumors have been heard that Oliver Sykes could replace Linkin Parks singer, Chester Bennington, who past away last year. It is not known wheater permanently or just to tour his latest album One More Light.
