The release of Bring Me The Horizon’s new album, There is a Hell Believe Me I’ve Seen It…, has divided fans but raised the band to the top of UK metal.
It’s not very often that an extreme metal band plays a venue like the Southampton Guildhall and it’s even rarer that the gig sells out. One of the reasons behind the tickets being shifting faster than you can say ‘breakdowns’ is strong support bill of Parkway Drive, Architects and The Devil Wears Prada. Architects’ drummer, replaced Matt Nichols of BMTH at very short notice and played the vast majority of their set. But the phrase ‘Heavy Metal Boyband’ sprung to mind throughout the headliner’s set.
