Bring Me The Horizon at Alexandra Palace - Live Review
Bring Me The Horizon have changed a lot over the years and have continued to gather momentum since the release of 2013's "Sempiternal", but last night (November 28) the Sheffield five-piece proved to a sold out Ally Pally that they only plan on getting bigger and bolder.
The band performed tracks from their latest release "That's The Spirit" as well as hits from previous releases. Behind them an enormous screen projecting colorful images throughout the show, for the pleasure of Instagrammers.
BMTH opened their strong set with the ambient, dubby squelches of “Doomed”, then unleashed their vital spirit on the upbeat, chant-friendly "Happy Song", the second single released from the new album.
“S.P.I.R.I.T. Spirit, let's hear it,” Oli Sykes cried out with the crowd chanting every word.
Things heated up fast thanks to strong tracks from the new album: the infectious "Thrones" and the anthem "True Friends" - with guitars exploding all around, eventually blending into "The House of Wolves", "Chelsea Smile" and "Sleepwalking". These were performed with fury, sending the crowd into a frenzy and bouncing all around.
BMTH and Sykes didn't have a moment of rest but took time to rember Paris, asking the crowd to make some noise for the city. Their crushing performance continued with "Sempiternal"'s tune “Can You Feel My Heart” and offering the middle finger to the world during “Antivist”.
Finishing with late 2014 transitional "Drown", what a way to end.
BMTH were pretty close to perfection last night. That was the spirit.
