    SURVIVAL HORROR is one of the band's best distillations of their extremes, providing just enough brutality without sacrificing their evolving vision of how melodic and experimental a metal band can be.

    What could have been an act of self-sabotage or self-indulgence – or both – has transpired to be a welcome reminder of all that this band does best, rooted in raw relevance for today and the cyber-punk energy of tomorrow.

    BMTH have long known how to play what cards when, and just when we need something cathartic, something heavy, something with an element of the familiar in amongst the creativity, they deliver richly here. Fourteen years on from their debut, much has changed, but in some other ways some things are exactly the same.

    Bring Me The Horizon is a band that you can rely on for a constantly evolving output and whilst, POST HUMAN: SURVIVAL HORROR doesn’t exactly diverge away from what the band were developing on last year’s amo, it does capture the bewildering phenomenon that is living through a worldwide pandemic. It is as fun as it is bleak.

    The haters will protest, but this is the sound of metal dragging itself into the future. [Jan 2021, p.83]

    Their heaviest record since ‘Suicide Silence’. Well, maybe their heaviest record since ‘There Is A Hell…’. OK, almost certainly their heaviest record since ‘Sempiternal’. This is not to say that going back to their brutal roots is a bad move. Sykes recently described heavy music as the band’s ‘bread and butter’, and there’s definitely a sense that BMTH are playing on home turf with ‘SURVIVAL HORROR’.

    Post Human: Survival Horror doesn’t break any moulds, it’s the sonic equivalent to fast food, by which you’ll consume it, enjoy it, and forget about it right after you’ve finished it, but it’s fun while it lasts.

    Variation; all the best Bring Me bits and more. Experimental and outright perfection, Dear Diary, all the way to One Day The Only Butterflies...

The lyrics, the production, all incredible. Amo was experimental and i was a fan, but this EP is just as experimental but brought forward Bring Me The Horizon's vibe along with it. Every song takes you on a rollercoaster, of emotions, with anger, energy, sadness, and almost out of this world into your own one. I thoroughly enjoyed every single song from it. 10/10 Expand

While by no means a return to their deathcore roots, this is the heaviest material the band has released in years and wouldn't have felt out of place on Sempiternal despite having the same experimental vibe as Amo. It's essentially a marriage of the two best chapters of the band's history and feels so very timely. What's not to love?
