"Sempiternal" (Epitaph; 2013)

Reviewed by Austin Rogers

This British Deathcore band has dark lyrics and galloping drums.

The second track, "The House of Wolves," has a cool guitar riff and pounding drums that will give you a reason to head bang. "Empire (Let Them Sing)," the third track on this disc, has crowd in the chorus. "Sleepwalking," the fourth track and their second single, has great guitar and more crowd on the chorus and it sounds live. Their first single and sixth track, "Shadow Moses," has ripping guitar and a Killswitch Engage sound to it.

In 2012, the band had stopped touring to write “Sempiternal.” Rhythm guitarist Jona Weinhofen says "We're not very good at getting motivated to write on tour."

Bring Me the Horizon: Oliver Sykes – lead vocals; Lee Malia – guitar; Matt Kean – bass guitar; Matt Nicholls – drums, percussion; Jordan Fish – keyboards, programming.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
