While the band is currently on tour with Sleeping With Sirens and Poppy, Bring Me The Horizon have also launched a line of band merch solely based on your Spotify listening habits. There’s a catch, however – but this is pretty neat nonetheless.
While the band certainly became a memeable punching bag after the release of their most recent self-titled debut album, it wasn’t all that long ago that Suicide Silence were at least competent songwriters. Their final album with vocalist Mitch Lucker, The Black Crown, showed a surprising amount of musical growth, and while its follow-up with new vocalist Eddie Hermida wasn’t necessarily amazing, there was hope that their self-titled album would move the needle more.
Of course, that wasn’t the case. Injecting a heavy dosage of nu-metal into their signature deathcore, it was easily their low point as a band – notably being critically savaged by just about every major music critic out there. While there were a few intriguing moments on the album, it was a largely unsuccessful album cycle for the veterans. However, there is some renewed hope with the news that 2020 will bring new music from the band.

Equal parts manacing, emotive, and terrifying, Korn’s 1994 self-titled debut album, which turns 25 today, is immediately recognizable as essentially the birth of a new genre – nu-metal – within the first 20 seconds of “Blind”. 5 men in a room playing some of the most unnerving and groundbreaking music to ever hit your auditory canals, and 25 years later, it’s still a vital listen for any music fan.
