Music and Media: Elders React To BMTH

Youtube’s Fine Brothers have done it again… another hilarious react video with our oldest generation, the Elders. The Elders on their channel have some funny input on many of their topics that they are chosen to react to for the channel and the overall React series. This time, it caught our music lovers attention…as these lovable Elders would be reacting to no one other than, Bring Me The Horizon.

Bring Me The Horizon have had an incredible year with the release of That’s The Spirit, and this video is icing on the cake. Featuring the music videos for “Throne”, “Shadow Moses” and “Follow You” it has a lot of witty commentary…and maybe some new BMTH fans. With the exposure to a whole new generation… how did they feel about this genre of music?

Check out the REACT video below and leave your comments about how you feel about Bring Me The Horizon! 🙂

 

Bring Me The Horizon release video for ‘Follow You’

Bring Me The Horizon have just released a brand new video for the track “Follow You” off of their 5th studio album released earlier this year, That’s The Spirit.

The video has an eerie,  apocalyptic vibe which was not what most fans expected for this song… but definitely gives the song a whole new image and feeling. There are many graphic scenes, violence, some societal commentary and even zombies. It’s definitely a war zone to say the least.

Although different than expected, the internet has already spread a few memes of the video’s main character… and it’s pretty entertaining.

All in all, the video is beautifully done and definitely sends the message that That’s The Spirit embodies as an album.

Bring Me The Horizon release “True Friends” single

Another wonderful single off of Bring Me The Horizon’s upcoming album “That’s The Spirit” was released, and let me just say… this one might be my favorite of the singles to date. “True Friends” brings the electronic sound that we have become familiar with this album, but also packs a punch as the song is a true heavy hitter and fun.

That’s The Spirit” becomes more and more promising as time goes on, and will be released in full on September 11, 2015 via Columbia Records.

Listen to “True Friends” Below:

Bring Me The Horizon release video for new single “Throne”.

Say what you’d like, but Bring Me The Horizon are back and in a BIG way; as the new single for “Throne” hits hard in a new direction for the band.

“Throw me to the wolves, Tomorrow I’ll come back leader of the whole pack…Beat me black and blue, every word will shape me, every scar will build my throne!”

BMTH Vocalist,Oliver Sykes, sings as the chorus blends into a electronic breakdown in the new song for the band entitled “Throne”. Proper title for such a powerful song matched with imagery that looks like it was lifted from the popular Game Of Thrones itself.

“Throne” is the third single that Bring Me The Horizon has released over the past few months in previewing what the new album will sound like (Such as “Drown” and “Happy Song”). Sound wise, the band has been taking a new turn after the release of highly popular “Sempiternal” in 2013, as this new album.”That’s The Spirit”, will be quite the followup. BMTH showed their softer sides in “Drown”, but brought back the action one knows and loves about BMTH in both “Happy Song” and “Throne.”

“Throne” being more electronic is definitely a new feel for many hardcore BMTH fans, but the band has been evolving and changing over the past few years with releases, and the fanbase has been changing alongside them. With the previous album “Sempiternal” using many synth elements as well, the metal core vibe was gone and had very little of Sykes screaming that he had become known for in the bands early works, such as “Suicide Season” or “Count Your Blessings”.

Sykes described the new album as being about where society stands as a generation and that message can be noticed if you listen to the lyrics. Our generation uses music as so much more than just entertainment, as some depend on it as a sort of lifeline which can be heard from the chorus of “Happy Song”, where Sykes belts out ,“if I sing along a little fucking louder to a happy song I’ll be alright” which follows the scarily short verse about suffering from depression.

“Throne” is the opposite, as it is highly empowering and just listening to it makes one feel like they can do practically anything and stand their ground against something so much bigger… whether the problem or fear be physical or not.

With more synth sounds, new relatable lyrics and changes comes a new side of Bring Me The Horizon, that I am personally really excited for, and hope that others are just as excited as well.
