Recent listeners to Nick Grimshaw’s Radio 1 breakfast show have been woken with a jolt following the surprise addition of Bring Me The Horizon to the station’s playlist. The riffs of ‘Shadow Moses’ may be a strange accompaniment to your tea and Weetabix, but it’s all part of the Sheffield metal band’s bid to become a Proper Big Deal in 2013. Their fourth album ‘Sempiternal’ is packed full of similar sucker-punch moments, with ‘The House Of Wolves’ and ‘Antivist’ typifying the album’s muscular and impressive anthemics. Ready to break noisily out of the underground, the quintet have made one of the year’s most accomplished metal albums.
