Speaking to Merlin Alderslade from Metal Hammer, Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oli Sykes has revealed 10 albums that changed his life.
He said that ‘Linkin Park’s Hybrid Theory was changed his life’. He stated:
“I don’t like the album Living Things, but I think all the other stuff they’ve done is amazing. Hybrid Theory still sounds amazing to me. I’m not at all ashamed to say that the vocal style on Sempiternal is influenced by Chester Bennington.”
On Pantera’s Vulgar Display Of Power album, he said:
“I think I’d say a Pantera album – Vulgar Display Of Power. When we were doing Sempiternal with Terry Date [who also produced Vulgar…], we were listening to it a lot, and I think that that album seeped into our record.”
He also praised Arctic Monkeys’ Favourite Worst Nightmare album with this statement:
“I wasn’t a big fan at the start. I went to school with them, and then I saw them on our local news, saying that they’d sold out Brixton Academy! I was a bit jealous, actually, ha ha ha! I’m not really an indie fan, but they’re one of my favourite bands now.”
“Sempiternal” is the fourth studio album by British rock band Bring Me the Horizon, and it was released on 1 April 2013 via RCA Records.
