BMTH Album InfoAlready being herald as one of the most anticipated albums of the year, BRING ME THE HORIZON’s upcoming fourth studio album, SEMPITERNAL will be the defining sound of heavy music in 2013 and it is scheduled for release on April 30th via Epitaph Records. Check out a new trailer for the record here:


Proving to be perpetual favorites among fans, the album’s first single “Shadow Moses” came charging out of the gates last week after premiering on Zane Lowe’s BBC’s Radio 1, forcing Epitaph to post the song on YouTube a week in advance due to popular demand.

Check out "Shadow Moses" here:


"There's a very euphoric sound coursing through the album, a very uplifting but yet sad sound," says front-man Oliver Sykes. "Electronically, it's far more advanced than anything we've done before."

The five piece, consisting of Oliver Sykes, Lee Malia, Matt Kean, Matt Nicholls and Jordan Fish, recorded Sempiternal over a three month period with super producer Terry Date (Linkin Park, Deftones, Soundgarden). The band also brought in David Bendeth (A Day To Remember, Paramore) to add to the all-star production line-up and mix the album.

"Writing Sempiternal was a completely different process," comments Sykes. "We worked from a computer, laying down ideas and riffs and working on them tirelessly until we had what we wanted." For the first time, Sempiternal sees a new member appearing on the record, Jordan Fish, who takes on keyboard duties on the record as well as during live performances. "Bringing Jordan into the mix changed things completely; he opened up so many more possibilities."

Sykes goes on to say, "The lyrical theme is everything. My head was a lot clearer when writing this time and it allowed me to write from a different perspective. It's the best stuff I've ever written in my opinion. It's very dramatic, quite blunt, and at times sarcastic, but the biggest part of it - is how it is combined with the music to bring the listener vivid imagery and emotion. I think we really managed to pull that off."

Sempiternal is an embracing ride through soaring vocals, supercharged melodies and what can only be described as spine tingling metal anthems. After the critical and commercial success of their previous albums, There Is A Hell, Believe Me I’ve Seen It. There Is A Heaven, Let’s Keep It A Secret (2010) and their breakout success Suicide Season (2008), BMTH plan to take heavy music to the next level, incorporating the most dynamic elements of hard music to create the most exhilarating album of the year.

Still think the intro/outro of Shadow Moses was plagiarized from a temple somewhere in Hyrule.

It seems like they were going for an MGS vibe, you know, given the name.

Thats what I am thinking. Its so weird cause I remember reading the the AP mag (I know- i suck) how important Jona was to the writing process of Sempiternal according to Oli.

It sucks so bad to see Jonah leave the band. He seems to be a decent guy. But im pretty sure that Oli is a little bitch so why wouldnt he?
