Bring Me the Horizon (sometimes abbreviated as BMTH) are a British metalcore band from Sheffield, Yorkshire. Formed in 2004, the group currently consists of lead vocalist Oliver Sykes, lead guitarist Lee Malia, bassist Matt Kean, drummer Matt Nicholls and keyboardist Jordan Fish. They are currently signed to RCA Records globally and Epitaph Records exclusively in the US. The style of their early work has primarily been described as deathcore, but they started to adopt a more eclectic style of metalcore on later releases. Furthermore, their latest singles ("Drown" and "Don't Look Down") marked a shift in their sound to less aggressive rock music styles.

Bring Me the Horizon released their debut album Count Your Blessings in 2006. Upon release, the album was met with great polarisation amongst the public and critical disdain. The band began to break away from their controversial sound with Suicide Season (2008), which proved to be a creative, critical and commercial turning point for the band. Bring Me the Horizon then released their third album There Is a Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It. There Is a Heaven, Let's Keep It a Secret. in 2010, propelling them to greater international fame, whilst incorporating influences from classical, electronica and pop. Their major label debut, Sempiternal has been their most significant commercial achievement, achieving Gold certification in Australia (35,000) and Silver in the United Kingdom (60,000). Aside from these four albums, they have also released two extended plays.
