    While bleakness is certainly prominent throughout, this album has many different shades and it is these contrasts that make it so vital. It's an album that bursts with ambition, and that Bring Me The Horizon pull it off so powerfully further confirms their greatness. [25 Sep 2010, p.50]
  2. The sonic evolution of the group is remarkable, and the dark, introspective lyrics of Sykes will not only be cathartic for him, but for many.
  3. For all its bluster, There Is A Hell is far more than the story of a man battling his self-perpetuated inner turmoil; it is the sound of a remarkable band establishing themselves as one of the finest of their generation.

    There Is A Hell is an impressive and ambitious third effort that proves these Brits have staying power. [Nov 2010, p.109]
  5. It's the group's most ambitious offering yet, a collection that bites harder than anything they've previously issued but which is equally eager to kiss everything better.

    The odd electronic twist sugars the pill, but it's mostly relentless if brutally effective stuff. [Nov 2010, p.105]
  7. There is a Hell finds Bring Me the Horizon at the top of their game, and its lack of over indulgent production makes it an album that'll not only please fans of the band, but may surprise fans of bands like Converge who are interested in seeing what the kids are up to these days.

    Amazing album! it is probably there best album yet. It just runs shivers up your spine every time you hear Oliver Sykes (Lead Singer) sing andAmazing album! it is probably there best album yet. It just runs shivers up your spine every time you hear Oliver Sykes (Lead Singer) sing and scream. 'It Never Ends" is my favorite song from the album along with "Dont Go", "Crucify Me" and **** . It's going to take me along time to not listen to these songs for a day.
    I just love it. :)

    A lot of bands like with this kind of style make their way through their careers by riding on the backs of their fan girls and the scene kids.A lot of bands like with this kind of style make their way through their careers by riding on the backs of their fan girls and the scene kids. Bring Me the Horizon Goes against that trend. This is an evolution for the band. They experiment in all of the right areas here and have created one of the best metal albums you can find.

    The heaviness of the genre is mixed with more emotional tones. Lead singer Oliver Sykes pours out his inner emotions into every song. It leads to a mix of powerful vocals and wonderfully written lyrics. The lyrics are a real strong point for the album. Hooks are catchy and the symbolism is spot on. There's a sense of maturity and depth in the writing that you don't get from many hardcore/metalcore bands. It make sit all more of a joy to listen to.

    This album is heavy and addicting. It's some of the most enjoyable metal I have heard in a long time, if not ever. The band shows that they are no longer only willing to focus on a specific audience. Instead they reach out to the entire metal community. The results are satisfying even if the instrumental rely on the same heavy riffs that the genre is full of every now and then. It's a fantastic album and I give it a 9.9/10.
