07:14 - ScreamingSteelUS My top choice was Persefone's "Spiritual Migration." Next was In Vain's new album, and after that I couldn't decide between Amon Amarth and Children of Bodom. Omnium Gatherum's I liked.
06:31 - AngelofDeth also think it was the fact that not much else came out that was good. Beyond is Omnium's best yet so I gave my vote to them but damn it still not that great an album
05:52 - deadone My problem goes down to individual albums where songs blur into one tedious dirge
05:51 - Unhealer Wonder what would have happened if the staff hadn't nominated them. Would they still win as write-ins?
05:38 - ScreamingSteelUS I wouldn't go that far, but I agree they can be repetitive. For me, it's one of those cases of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." "Twilight of the Thunder God" may be my favorite, though.
05:36 - deadone I've never liked them that much, other than Twilight of the Thunder God. Their albums come across as repetitive and monotonous and all sound remarkebly similar. AC/DC and Cannibal Corpse seem like Jethro Tull in LSD on comparison.
05:29 - ScreamingSteelUS I think it's because they are just one of the biggest names in the awards. I love Amon Amarth, but "Deceiver of the Gods" was tied for third place in that category for me.

Bring Me The Horizon has made an album that DOESN'T suck.. No, no they have not. It seems after a few releases of some sub-par material and general band dumbassery, Bring Me The Horizon have managed to make something that's actually good. Not ironic "Bro check this breakdown" good either.
They've certainly matured a bit, but the music is just as (if not more) generic and stale as ever. Terrible album.
How the hell is this generic?
It is pretty experimental and all over the place, using many different influences from completely different genres.
I can understand you not liking it but it seems generic is a shitty overused word that means nothing because people will apply it to anything they dislike.
Bring Me The Horizon - And The Snakes Start To Sing
This is pretty much the best song they ever did, I love the shit out of the ambiance and atmosphere here (which is pretty much present on the whole album, just in less quantities. Except Antivist, that's a shitty song that break the flow of album unnecessarily). Also who would've thought Oli has a wonderful clean voice and he can write actually good lyrics.

Yup. I'm agree with everyone. Sempiternal is their the best album that they've released. It's not deathcore or post-hardcore. I ddn't even try to categorise them to screamo or emo etc. They made something...different. Something more considered, more electronic, and less gayer. I think that Bring Me The Horizon has made a step. Right step to being serious band, with good songs and albums.
