Count Your Blessings
Label: ADA UK
Count Your Blessings comes charging out of the speakers with an absolute killer of an opener, "Pray for Plagues." Bring Me the Horizon's 2006 debut explains why this band has had critical praise heaped upon them. Singer Oliver Sykes delivers his lines in a truly ferocious wraith-screech, and the guitars (on top of guitars) ribbon, squeal, strafe and chug enough to please any At the Gates fan. Bring Me the Horizon seem determined to bring legitimacy back to metalcore.
