Bring Me The Horizon Biography
Formed in Sheffield, ENGLAND, in 2004, Bring Me The Horizon have gone from hyped youngsters, winning the Kerrang Award for Best British Newcomers in 2006, to one of the world's most acclaimed Metalcore bands. The quintet was initially comprised of Oliver Sykes on vocals, Lee Malia on lead guitar, Curtis Ward on rhythm guitar, Matt Kean on bass and Matthew Nicholls on drums.
In October 2006 Bring Me The Horizon came out with "Count Your Blessings", an album full of breakdowns, massive riffs, time signatures, tempo changes, immense vocals, shredding solos, blistering percussion.
Two years later, their second full-length disc, "Suicide Season", broke them into the upper half of the U.K. Sales chart and was released by California indie label Epitaph Records in the U.S. where it peaked at #9 on the Top Independent Albums chart.
Not long after Ward left the group and was replaced by Australian guitarist Jona Weinhofen.
The Sheffield-based crew issed their next album, "There Is A Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It, There Is A Heaven, Let's Keep It A Secret", in October 2010 which ultimately proved to be a tremendous commercial success; it rocketed to #17 on The Billboard 200, hit #13 in U.K. and soared to #1 in Australia.
Before the band recorded their next album, keyboardist Jordan Fish joined and Weinhofen left the fold.
