Bring Me The Horizon is known for how experimental they’ve been with their genre the past few years and their new song “Parasite Eve” proves that they will continue to do so. Following the release of their experimental album, Music to Listen To…, this song returns the band back to a more vocal sound.
The song opens with an eerie electronic folk choir-like sound before immediately going into lead vocalist Oliver Sykes going into an intense combination of rap and electronic beats. Following this, there is a robotic-like female voice saying “please remain calm.”
After the robotic pre-chorus, the song takes yet another turn into a heavy sound. Following their roots, Bring Me The Horizon brings it with the heavy breakdown and intense instrumentals.
“It’s the Parasite Eve
Got a feeling in your stomach ’cause you know that it’s coming for ya
Leave your flowers and grieve
Don’t forget what they told ya”
The song has a perfect moment for when live shows in which Oliver Sykes stops singing and says “move” right before a strong breakdown follows. With a futuristic-like sound, the music video pairs perfectly with the song. The video is full of science fiction like creatures and dystopian shots.
This single shows that Bring Me The Horizon are not going to be limited to any genres and will continue to experiment with new sounds. Go check out their new song “Parasite Eve” and see what you think!
