Reception to the newest Bring Me The Horizon single, “Medicine”, has been decidedly mixed. While older fans of the band are shocked the band (who used to play borderline deathcore/grindcore) now write full-blown pop songs, it’s another track destined for the top of the charts. It begs the question, though – what if the track was morphed into a metal version – possibly a throwback to their Sempiternal days?
Youtube guitarist extraordinare Nik Nocturnal and Makari // WVNDER vocalist Andy Cizek recently teamed up on a new take on “Medicine”. Spoiler alert: It’s pretty shocking how well it works, and while it’s not like Bring Me The Horizon have abandoned rock completely (see: “Mantra”, “Wonderful Life”), it’s a throwback of sorts to the fans that really got into the band around the Sempiternal album cycle. After all, it’s still an album that countless rock and metal bands draw inspiration from.
