Bring Me the Horizon‘s new EP, Post Human: Survival Horror is out now, meaning you can hear the guest-filled record, including one song which features Evanescence singer Amy Lee and another starring Babymetal.
The release of the nine-track EP has long been in the works as Bring Me the Horizon dropped the first single, “Ludens,” in November of last year, taking fans on a ride that came up just one week shy of a full year of anticipation. “Parasite Eve” followed in June, and then came “Obey” featuring Yungblud and, most recently, “Teardrops.”
“Kingslayer” finds BMTH diving head-first into beat-backed electronic music, a realm they’re not entirely unfamiliar with, amid the pounding distortion that still retains aspects of their roots in extreme metal. A true testament to the spirit of collaboration, this track would fit just as comfortably on a Babymetal record as it does the Post Human: Survival Horror EP.
Closing out the release is “One Day the Only Butterflies Left Will Be in Your Chest as You March Towards Your Death” with a guest appearance from Amy Lee. It’s a complete reversal from the beat-smattered intensity of “Kingslayer” and it’s minimalist atmosphere and heavenly piano melodies offers the ideal foundation for Lee’s tenderhearted vocal delivery.
“It was just a really fun escape from that little stuck moment that I was in, and it inspired me. It helped me feel, I don’t know… beautiful. The song is beautiful,” Lee told Loudwire in an exclusive interview. “That song is always gonna have a special place in my heart because I felt like, in a moment as an artist when I was stuck, another artist came along and helped me,” added the Evanescence frontwoman.
