Bring Me The Horizon is a five-piece rock band from Sheffield, Yorkshire, formed in 2004. The band's name comes from an {{Improv}} line from ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' ("Now... bring me that horizon"). Despite the fact that they've received a fair amount of backlash from many Metal fans, each release has seen them grow to new heights of popularity, and they are currently one of the biggest modern rock acts around. They have five full-length albums released, plus a demo, an EP, two live DVDs and two remix releases, one an EP and the other a full length album. Overall, they have released 23 music videos and 12 singles.

Bring Me The Horizon started out in 2004 as a {{deathcore}} band, with a reliance on breakdowns, false chord screaming, and riffs influenced by bands such as {{At the Gates}}. This sound is represented on their first EP; the {{grindcore}}-esque ''This Is What The edge of Your Seat Was Made for''. The only full-length released in this phase of their career was ''Count Your Blessings'' which brought them their first taste of popularity once the music video for lead single "Pray For Plagues" went viral. It drew mostly mixed reviews with complaints resting on the reliance on breakdowns and the somewhat immature songwriting.

Bring Me The Horizon is a five-piece rock band from Sheffield, Yorkshire, formed in 2004. The band's name comes from an {{Improv}} line from ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' ("Now... bring me that horizon"). Despite the fact that, prior to the almost universally-acclaimed ''Sempiternal'' and ''That's the Spirit'', they got alot of hate from metalheads and others for their image and for the fact that alot of their fans are teenage girls (which is a rather sexist insult to say to a band anyways), Bring Me The Horizon is a band that has constantly worked to update and push the envelope for their sound and for [[ScreamoMusic screamo]] in general. As of right now they might be one of the most experimental PostHardcore style bands out right now. They've released four full-length albums, one EP and a remix compilation.

Bring Me The Horizon started out in 2004 as a {{deathcore}} band, with a reliance on breakdowns, false chord screaming, and riffs influenced by {{At the Gates}}. This sound is represented on their first EP; the {{grindcore}}-esque "This Is What The edge of Your Seat Was Made for". The only album they did in this phase of their career was "Count Your Blessings" which brought them their first taste of popularity once the music video for lead single "Pray For Plagues" went viral. It drew mostly mixed reviews with complaints resting on the reliance on breakdowns and the adherance to the deathcore formula.

But the band were smart enough to realize the limitations of the formula and the realization that deathcore was mostly a fad, so they made the bold decision to completely transform their sound on their sophomore release "Suicide Season". This album marked a switch to pure {{Metalcore}} and it featured more emotional mid range screaming from Oli, a better more confident band able to do more melodic but still intricate playing, and a better execution of breakdowns. While it still wasn't the best lyrically it more than made up for it with the amount of intensity and technicality they put behind each song. But most interesting of all was the edition of electronics of their sound, which unlike other metalcore bands with electronica elements they don't just toss synthesizers and beats on top of their riffs, instead they use it as atmospheric, ambient electro breaks to give their songs more time to breath. Their original fanbase naturally cried out due to the GenreShift, but really it was for the better with their popularity still intact since both "Diamonds Aren't Forever" and "Chelsea Smile" becoming big hits (with the latter now being considered their {{signature song}}

Now the band had found a successful formula that they could've stuck with for another hit album. But the band opted instead to innovate and change their sound again. Releasing "There is a Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It. There Is a Heaven, Let's Keep It a Secret" in 2010 to rave reviews. In comparison to the past two efforts this record is much more mature, with better pacing and lyrics in place of the often juvenile ones of ''Count Your Blessings'' and ''Suicide Season''. They also took much more chances musically, with songs including ambient electronic sections, orchestral and symphonic elements, glitched out vocals, and even more intricate song writing. It also featured vocal contributions from synthpop singer {{Lights}} who's sweet vocals had [[SopranoAndGravel an interesting interplay with Oli's harsh and pained ones.]]

Needless to say no one saw this album coming and it blew just about everyone out of the water. Proving that they weren't just a passing fad and instead one of the most important metalcore bands out right now, the pressure was on for their fourth album. But instead of caving they released their top album "Sempiternal".

Taking every lesson they've learned in the past two albums and tightening it up, ''Sempiternal'' represented the epitome of what they were capable of, except now they had a permanent keyboardist to give their songs a better element of ambient music, better lyrics to give the songs increased emotional weight, and elements of PostRock to give their songs greater dynamics allowing the heavier aspects of their metalcore sound to hit the hardest.

All of this was [[JustForPun throne]] out the window in 2015, when they released ''That's the Spirit''. The album saw them completely abandoning metalcore and in its place, styles such as PopPunk, {{emo}}, electronic rock, pop rock, and NuMetal. This shift from metalcore to rock with some metal leanings gave them their biggest success worldwide, especially in the United States where it debuted at #2 on the albums chart (held off by Music/TheWeeknd's ''Beauty Behind the Madness''). The lead single "Throne" became their first song to top the US mainstream rock charts, and gave them their largest following to date.

Finally proven that they're not the same deathcore band that lit up MySpace in 06, but instead a nuanced and hard hitting band with a strong sense of song craft and dynamics.

They also took much more chances musically, This album marked a switch to a pure {{Metalcore}} sound and featured experimentation with songs including electronic and ambient elements, plus more melodic vocals, making for a slightly more accessible sound overall. This, along with the more mature songwriting on display gained the album higher critical reception than its predecessor (though it was still very mixed), and gained the band yet more popularity. The track 'Chelsea Smile' would go on to become something of a {{signature song}} for the band. Also released was an electronic remix album entitled 'Suicide Season: Cut Up', with alternate artwork. It was critically panned however, and is seen as an interesting footnote rather than an essential listen. Guitarist Lee Malia noted that one reason for its release was to fill contractual obligations.

In 2010, the band put out their third album, entitled ''There is a Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It''. Building upon the ideas from the previous album, they further upped the ambient and
electronic sections, and added orchestral and symphonic elements, elements and glitched out vocals, and even more intricate song writing. vocal effects.
