Origins
The group was formed in 2004 from the ashes of several Sheffield-based outfits. Matt Nicholls and Oliver Sykes used to attend local hardcore punk shows. The two later met Lee Malia, who spoke to the two about thrash metal and melodic death metal bands like Metallica and At The Gates. They officially formed in March of 2004. It started with drummer Nicholls, Malia, Sykes, and Curtis Ward (who ended up leaving) who all lived in the Rotherham area, then they finished the line up by inviting bassist Matt Kean.

They initially established their own label, Thirty Days of Night, to release their debut EP in 2005,
This Is What the Edge of Your Seat Was Made For
.

On signing to Visible Noise, they reissued the EP to a wider audience. Bring Me the Horizon's full-length debut,
Count Your Blessings
appeared in October 2006 with an American release following one year later, courtesy of Epitaph Records.
Their second album:
Suicide Season
, Bring Me the Horizon moved in a more accessible direction and wound up cracking the U.K. album charts. Not everyone approved of the new sound, though, and Ward left the band in early 2009. His temporary replacement was Jona Weinhofen.
Weinhofen ended up staying with the band as a permanent member, and the group returned to the studio with producer Fredrik Nordström in March 2010 to begin work on a third album. The resulting
There Is a Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It, There Is a Heaven, Let's Keep It a Secret
was released during the latter half of 2010, several months after the band wrapped up its engagement with the Warped Tour.
A fourth album, the more atmospheric
Sempiternal
, arrived on Epitaph in 2013.
The band's name is derived from the final line of the film Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, in which Captain Jack Sparrow says "Now, bring me that horizon."
Now...bring me that horizon
Unique
The band is unique in that it veers off the normal hardcore punk to slightly electronic and melodic sounds. The screaming in most cases is understandable and not as hardcore as some.
