[edit] Background information

The album was recorded in Arboga, an isolated Swedish village. Sykes described Arboga as "Nowheresville."[5] Sykes considered the isolation Arboga provided as ideal in comparison to the constant activity in Birmingham, the recording location of their first album: "We recorded Count Your Blessings in the middle of Birmingham and it was very easy to get distracted. Arboga is a village with nothing in it apart from a tiny shop and that was it. We actually lived at the studio so it meant we could all just focus on the music. Fredrik was a cool guy, and he taught us how to do stuff, so at night after he'd gone home we'd still be recording the album."[6]
In a more recent issue of Metal Hammer, Bring Me the Horizon's performance of "It Was Written In Blood" was released from the Metal Hammer Golden God Awards ceremony. The track was mis-labeled as being from This Is What the Edge of Your Seat Was Made For and was also mis-labeled as the song "Sleep with One Eye Open".
Suicide Season is released under Enhanced CD format and includes music videos for "The Comedown" and "Pray for Plagues", along with downloadable desktop wallpapers. The album features guest appearances from vocalist JJ Peters of Deez Nuts, Sam Carter of Architects and Luis Dubuc of The Secret Handshake.[6]
The first promotional video from Suicide Season was released on Tuesday August 12, 2008 on the Visible Noise Myspace, entitled 'The Comedown'. On August 15, "Chelsea Smile" was released on the band's MySpace page.
On September 28, Suicide Season was made available to download from the New Zealand iTunes store.
The song "It Was Written In Blood" was inspired by famous Russian poet Sergei Yesenin's final poem, titled Goodbye, my friend, goodbye.
The model on the front cover is Amanda Hendrick, who happens to be Oli Sykes' girlfriend.

[edit] Promotion

Visible Noise Records produced a site dedicated to the promotion of the album. It featured a clock counting down to 29 September (the album's release date), and a scroll-over page in which the user can reveal an image of the album's artwork.
The band also put a countdown to the release of the album in the United Kingdom. Bring Me The Horizon also headlined in the United Kingdom, Europe, and the United States. The support acts included The Red Shore, Deez Nuts, The Secret Handshake, Dead Swans, The Legacy, Misery Signals, Johnny Truant, The Ghost Inside, and Confide.

[edit] Genre

In an interview with Metal Hammer magazine, Sykes states that this album is "100% different" from Count Your Blessings.[5] He also says "We experimented a lot more I think, more with other styles of music we all enjoy, using different instruments and technology, by bringing a lot of digital stuff to the table. Every track is different."[5]

Sejarah Terbentuknya BRING ME THE HORIZON


Bring Me The Horizon diawali dengan pertemuan masing-masing personelnya di scene musik lokal d Sheffield. Awalnya, Oliver Sykes (vokal), dan Matt Nichols (drum), sudah pernah ngeband bareng. Begitu juga dengan Lee Malia (gitar), dan Curtis Ward (gitar). Mereka berdua pernah ngeband bareng, di sebuah band cover version Metallica.

Matt, Lee, dan Curtis, sudah berteman sebelumnya. Maklum, mereka adalah mahasiswa d kampus yang sama. Berangkat dari ketertarikan musik yang sama, mereka akhirnya memutuskan untuk ngeband bareng. Matt langsung merekomendasikan nama Oli, untuk jadi vokalis.

"kami akhirnya setuju untuk masukin Oli, ke band kami. Soalnya, pas pertama kali nge-jam, kami terpukau banget dengan Suara Oli", ujar Lee.

Tidak berapa lama. Matt Kean pun bergabung sebagai bassis. Awalnya, pertemuan Matt Kean dengan Oli termasuk konyol. Saat itu, Oli dan Matt Nichols sedang ada di sebuah bis dari London ke Sheffild. Matt Kean juga di bis yang sama. Oli pun ngajak Matt Kean untuk ngobrol. Obrolannya nggak jauh-jauh. Pastinya seputar musik.

"Dan setelah ngobrol2, kami merasa nyambung untuk urusan musik. Mereka akhirnya mengundang Matt untuk coba2 latihan bareng. Selanjutnya, Matt diterima masuk band mereka, dan kami ngeband bareng mulai dari situ"

Nama Bring Me The Horizon diambil dari kalimat yang diucapkan karakter Jack Sparrow, dalam film Pirates Of Caribbean. Perjalanan bermusik mereka termasuk hebat. Baru terbentuk tahun 2004, sampai sekarang mereka sudah mulai merilis sekitar 3 buah album dan 1 mini album....
