Bring Me the Horizon have shown their ability to change their style from a relatively bad album ('There Is a Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It, There Is a Heaven, Let's Keep It A Secret') to a very good album, one that wasn't expected ('Sempiternal'). Their previous albums have been 'Count Your Blessings' (2006), 'Suicide Season' (2008), 'Suicide Season: Cut Up' (2009), 'There Is A Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It, There Is a Heaven, Let's Keep It a Secret' (2010) and most recently, 'Sempiternal' (2013), which has skyrocketed to the top of ARIA's charts.

From their first album, 'Count Your Blessings', the vocal styling of Oliver Sykes has gotten more and more subdued with each album, from amazing growls to shockingly bad attempts at them. The instruments have changed as well. In 'Count Your Blessings' there were only two guitarists, a bassist and drums. Through their evolution of music genre, they have incorporated a machine that gives it a more techno beat to some of the songs. They didn't have many or any other artists come in to any of their songs until 'There Is a Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It, There Is a Heaven, Let's Keep It A Secret', in which they had Josh Franceschi from You Me At Six and Lights (named Valerie Anne Poxleitner at birth).

Bring Me the Horizon have shown themselves more than capable of creating music that is over and beyond their fans' expectations, skyrocketing to number ten in ARIA's new album charts, showing that it is one of the better albums from their genre so far this year.

This album is well worth a listen if it's up your alley of musical interest.
