The rise of Bring Me The Horizon from a scrappy deathcore outfit in Sheffield to becoming influencers of a generation and redefining the metal genre has been nothing short of remarkable.

BMTH set was packed with surprises

Tracks like “Teardrop,” “MANTRA,” “Parasite Eve,” “Kingslayer,” “Drown,” and “Shadow Moses” were precision-crafted to unleash a cascade of soaring choruses and incite wild mayhem.
