Tuesday was Oli Sykes‘ birthday. And the Bring Me The Horizon frontman celebrated the occasion onstage with his English rock act, blasting through a handful of the band’s older deathcore (and metalcore) songs. Watch it below.
It was at the Nov. 20 Amsterdam stop of the First Love Tour where Bring Me The Horizon revised part of their usual setlist for a brief foray into the classics. Suicide Season‘s “The Comedown” kicked off the throwback revue before the quintet ran through “(I Used To Make Out With) Medusa,” “Diamonds Aren’t Forever” and “Re: They Have No Reflections” in one sweltering, six-minute strike. See it and believe it:
The current tour from the British rockers comes after last month’s release of “wonderful life,” featuring Cradle Of Filth‘s Dani Filth, which followed “MANTRA,” the first single from the band’s upcoming sixth studio album, amo, out Jan. 25.
But all ears were on BMTH’s back catalog two nights ago at AFAS Live. “Re: They Have No Reflections” hadn’t been played live by the group since early 2008, as noted by Kerrang. And that song and “Medusa” show off a slice of the band’s early deathcore period, per Loudwire, while “The Comedown” and “Diamonds Aren’t Forever” are generally thought to represent Bring Me The Horizon’s more metalcore fare.
Do you wanna see BMTH bust out some of their old deathcore and metalcore songs live? Will you be catching the group on the imminent U.S. leg of the First Love World Tour? Get with the tour dates down after the album cut of “Reflections.”
