Bring Me the Horizon, often abbreviated BMTH, are an English rock band from Sheffield, South Yorkshire. Formed in 2004, the group now consists of vocalist Oliver Sykes, guitarist Lee Malia, bassist Matt Kean, drummer Matt Nicholls and keyboardist Jordan Fish. They are signed to RCA Records globally and Columbia Records exclusively in the United States. The style of their early work, including their debut album Count Your Blessings, has been described primarily as deathcore, but they started to adopt a more eclectic style of metalcore on later albums. Furthermore, their fifth album That’s the Spirit marked a shift in their sound to less aggressive rock music styles.

Amo (stylised in lowercase) is the sixth studio album by British rock band Bring Me the Horizon. Originally scheduled for release on 11 January 2019, it was released on 25 January 2019. The album was announced on 22 August 2018, a day after the release of the lead single “Mantra”. It is produced by frontman Oliver Sykes and keyboardist Jordan Fish, and was written and recorded primarily in Los Angeles.

Trash

the guy with the big necc says:

do Good Charlotte’s The Chronicles of Life and Death to regretting the past

bradjr10 says:

The album is well written but the sound and incremental is awful

Cherry says:

Already this is the worst album of 2019

Veronica Silk says:

It’s not that rock has gone soft, so much as a lot of musicians don’t try to change the status quo. And when they do, it’s mostly Electronica-heavy junk that plagues the genre in the past few years.

Dude Why says:

You know, when I heard Mantra I thought this album would be different than that’s the spirit. It’s not. It’s somehow worse. I at least liked 3-4 songs off of that’s the spirit. This album? I like Mantra. That’s the only one that felt like it pushed anything

Ice Reduction Through Daughter Combustion says:

As a huge metalhead, I’m amazed how shocked and angry people get at BMTH straying further and further away from heavy music. Do you fucking blame them?! We treated them like SHIT when they were heavy. Their first EP and the first 2 albums were heavy as fuck but they were constantly booed, bottled and treated like a laughing stock because of their haircuts and tight jeans. My friend saw them open for Lostprophets (yeah I know, I know) back in 2008 and even though they were the heaviest band of the night they were heckled as if Oli were Justin Bieber. Its no fucking wonder they jumped ship, we (the deathcore/metal community) were awful to them. Amo isn’t really my thing but good for them for doing what they want.

aaron burnett says:

I hate the word poppy. I know what you mean but i wonder if people who say the word know what they are talking about. Pop is short for popular its a song formula that usually goes verse, chorus, verse, bridge, chorus. So when you say it sounds poppy I’m confused as every song they have wrote the last 3 years have been that exact formula. The genre change is nothing i listen to so i cant tell you if its good. I feel like you are in the same boat bro just cause you dont normally review pop/edm. Lets let them have bmth. I personally dont like the singers voice, good timbre but has so much auto tune it tickles my ears. They also have to melodyne all his parts into nursery rhymes to make them catchy. Listen to of mice & men and issues and you will hear the same autotune screams great bands but something should be said about autotune screams

Mr Mediocre says:

What pisses me off isn’t their style change, I love that’s the spirit. It’s the fact that they are wasting so much talent. 99% of this album could have been made by any other pop artist. To me it just feels lifeless. Like they just went in the studio and tried to make the catchiest trendy album they could and be done with it. Not to mention what the fuck are the guitarist, bassist and drummer supposed to do when these songs are played live?! Unplug their shit and just pretend? Aside from Oli’s lyrics, he’s a great lyricist can’t deny that, and the fuckin weird ass video for medicine there is zero creativity.

Yes rock and metal has become soft. Because bands see BMTH go from heavy as balls to maintsream radio pop and selling out massive venues. Not every band is about the music, they wanna get paid so they jump on the bandwagon of bands trying to milk off of BMTH’s success and sound.

Thankfully we get a new Slipknot album this year so at least that’s reassuring.

Caleb Knight says:

I enjoyed that’s the spirt and semperternal amd thougt that was bring me the horizon at their best and then we get this…

Chad M says:

I’m shocked at how well they can change the sound

Now we are gonna get 20 more bands tryna sound like this LMAO

Whiley Fox says:

There is a part of me that feels kinda used as someone who bought their albums and supported them financially in the early days for them to just jump ship and start making completely different music. I get they want to evolve the sound and they don’t have to impress me. But I doubt there are any fans from pre That’s the Spirit still holding this band in high regard.

Ducklord The Great says:

I know metal fans have a weird obsessive hatred of anything remotely poppy, but seriously just bc an album has a more mainstream sound doesn’t instantly make it worthless crap

Laxmi Dubey says:

What about heavy metal?
Don’t y’all think! It’s a diss Track to all metal fans?

Revolution says:

It is terrible

Jack Kempster says:

Unfortunately while I love Rock. It hasn’t had the most interesting stuff going on in it recently.

The ABacross says:

I liked it… I think… I don’t know I need it to grow on me.

metal 3 mark says:

Rock has not gone soft it’s just bring me the horizon that’s gone soft I wish they would go back to them more heavey stuff I don’t really like this off stuff it sounds ok but not very great

Javier Zanetti says:

This album is softer but definitely not for the radi, the only song that seems made for the radio is probably medicine. All otger songs are too experimental for radio

Brad Suhrbier says:

Bands can make huge changes like this, theyre allowed. Electronics dont make something lifeless, staying within one genre does. And just because something is mainstream, that doesnt make it bad. Its liked for a reason, its mainstream for a reason. Theres something real to be found in more than just heavy music, and music is all about interpretation, look at the album as something outside of old bmth, approach it with a clear and open mind, and youll like at least one song, promise you.

AlexGreat321 says:

I really dug Mantra and Wonderful Life. Medicine and Mother Tongue just sound generic and I’d have a hard time telling the difference between this an other pop songs that are out. And that’s the worst part.

AtrocityEquine says:

How is there no highlight when the Grimes track works so well?
Other than that, This album was just as decent as That’s the Spirit.

Ben Bell says:

Well, time to give this _the Crash treatment!_

Scott MacWatters says:

Wonderful life is easily the worst song on the album.

Rob Durbin says:

Just an FYI, I pre-ordered the album direct from BMTH (after Mantra) and the CD did indeed come in a giant zip-lock bag (baggie) with no case! Exactly how it is in the picture!

Matthew Cool says:

I’ll give it this, at least there’s more effort put into this than Mania or America.

Wrathchild1995 says:

Out of the songs that didn’t release as singles before the album came out, I really enjoyed ‘in the dark’, ‘suger, honey, ice & tea’, ‘why you gotta kick me when i’m down’, ‘heavy metal’ & ‘i don’t know what to say’ 😛 To me those songs really stood out to me, in my honest opinion <3

MrFlipperInvader792 says:

Strange
Looking at a collage of reveiws on wikipedia it says “critical acclaim”

Son Of Voorhees says:

I actually kinda liked this album

Wrathchild1995 says:

Literally just finished listening to this album and I personally think it’s pretty damn good 😀 I would give it an 8 out of 10 <3 It really surprised me, in a good way. But I can definitely understand why most fans won't enjoy it, and this is coming from someone who likes their older stuff as well like Suicide Seasons, There Is A Hell and Sempiternal 😛

Zach Gratton says:

I understand opinions etc etc etc, but saying ‘Its just not catchy at all’ is blatantly false. It’s a goddamn earworm and it’s catchiness creates an addictive quality. It also takes multiple listens to truly absorb the diversity and the layers. I’m not saying it’s perfect, but it’s a huge risk from a band that was already popular. I appreciate their artistic integrity more than ever.

Blackwatch says:

BMTH – amo
Regretting The Past!
DO IT!

The Goat Got Milked says:

Loved that conclusion <3
Bmth is indeed one of the bands who contributes on rock getting softer and boring.
Instead: we should focus on rock acts who try to keep rock alive and fun.

Mikołaj Marszałek says:

It’s pretty Damn solid album , but you Have to consume it whole. I mean that you Have to listen to full album and just feel it. That’s what music is all about – feelings. Very experimental , interesting and well produced piece of music. Way more interesting than GVF for example. Quite pity that you give „amo” only 5/10 Because they were saying that they will go pop. Reviewing it as a rock album is a bit misunderstanding . One more thing- i preffer to listen their songs in the radio than some repetitive pop songs and Maroon 5 . „Amo” is fresh at least. Just open your minds guys ! Cheers 😉

EOGB says:

I feel like the people that are yearning for BMTH to go back to their old sound have barely scratched the surface of metalcore, Go listen to Messengers by August Burns Red or You Fail Me by Converge then compare them to Suicide Season or whatever and tell me if their old stuff really warranted that pedestal they get put upon so highly.

Hard Rock Reviews says:

Actually “Heavy Metal” is the best and heaviest this album gets imo. I wasn’t expecting much after seeing the singles so im glad there was SOMETHING i liked

Manu Laverdiere says:

Linkin Park’s One More Time, 30 Seconds to Mars’ America, and now this? fudge….

Matthew Roberts says:

So basically BMTH have been devoured by the Imagine Dragon…

jdh214 says:

I really loved Amo, but I do a soft spot for pop music.

Hey There says:

You’re being too generous
