Bring Me The Horizon

Bring Me the Horizon’s frontman, Oliver Sykes, is metalcore’s screaming answer to Justin Bieber. Boyish looks aside, this British band makes music that comes from more than youth angst and metal roots. “Our sound is a mix between classic rock, classical, electronica, everything,” Sykes says. “Just calling it metal doesn’t do it any justice.” They’ll have their say with a new album— There Is a Hell, Believe Me I’ve Seen It. There Is a Heaven, Let’s Keep It a Secret—dropping this month.

Bring Me the Horizon just finished up their second stint on the Warped Tour. “It’s amazing, it’s our favorite tour,” Sykes says. “Every night there are parties and the other bands are amazing. Life is good—nothing to complain about really, apart from the fact that our bodies are starting to feel it.”
His first tattoo? “A bunch of really shitty hearts on my stomach that’s now covered up by an eagle.” And the artwork grew from there. The lead singer has two full sleeves, and his chest and neck are almost entirely covered. “My right sleeve was done by a longtime friend. I just go back to her every few months and she just does bits and pieces,” he says. Sykes’s most recent artwork was done on the Warped Tour. “I had my girlfriend’s initials tattooed on my hand. We were really drunk. I’ve also got mum and dad on my hand. I didn’t want to leave my brother out, so now I have to get a tattoo for my brother and I’ll have the whole family.” Sykes also has the name of his clothing line, Drop Dead, inked across his knuckles. And he shares a tattoo with the rest of Bring Me the Horizon’s members, Lee Malia, Matt Kean, Matt Nichols, and Jona Weinhofen. “We all had LOL tattooed inside our lips,” he says. And during the act of getting the tattoos? “Yeah, we really laughed out loud.”

  1. The evidence is pretty damning. Sure, someone could come up with a similar joke once or twice by coincidence, but it�s happened over and over again with this piece of human garbage. On the tumblr page, you can see where he clearly stole John Mulaney�s joke (replacing �horse� with �cat�, because he thinks that�s enough cover) and you can also see a tweet from a few months previous where he praised the album he stole the joke from. So he clearly stole that joke and clearly knew he was stealing. It seems he�s just replacing nouns with other nouns and thinking that�s enough to claim ignorance. Similar jokes happen on twitter, but not with this much similarity this frequently.

  2. How to such a good fan and retain it.

  3. New players too will find the game easy to follow as
    the menus and sub-menus follow a logical order, so game options are easy
    to find. FIFA ultimate team is a unique game format and I like the FIFA
    ultimate team’s chemistry feature because it doesn’t allow one player to be a god and every
    one that can’t afford him get flogged game after game.
