AllMusic

Crashing head-long through a wall of corroded metal and glass shards, Bring Me the Horizon redefines their heavy sound once again with the potent EP POST HUMAN: SURVIVAL HORROR.

80
The Independent
It’s a soundtrack fit for the end of the world.

NME

What could have been an act of self-sabotage or self-indulgence – or both – has transpired to be a welcome reminder of all that this band does best, rooted in raw relevance for today and the cyber-punk energy of tomorrow.

Kerrang!

BMTH have long known how to play what cards when, and just when we need something cathartic, something heavy, something with an element of the familiar in amongst the creativity, they deliver richly here.

Gigwise

Think Count Your Blessings meets Amo… Bring Me The Horizon have gone above and beyond with their latest release, featuring collaborations with Yungblud, Babymetal, Nova Twins and the Queen of emo Amy Lee.

The Needle Drop

With POST HUMAN, BMTH dives deeper into their rejuvenation of turn-of-the-millennium metal.

The Line of Best Fit

Bring Me The Horizon is a band that you can rely on for a constantly evolving output and whilst, POST HUMAN: SURVIVAL HORROR doesn’t exactly diverge away from what the band were developing on last year’s amo, it does capture the bewildering phenomenon that is living through a worldwide pandemic.

Clash

‘SURVIVAL HORROR’ is Bring Me the Horizon’s invitation for you to regress with them for a while. I suggest you boot up your console and join them.

Classic Rock
The haters will protest, but this is the sound of metal dragging itself into the future.

The Forty-Five
‘POST HUMAN’ is no elongated pop party but an anti-escapist battle cry that screeches in at just under thirty minutes.

Post Human: Survival Horror doesn’t break any moulds, it’s the sonic equivalent to fast food, by which you’ll consume it, enjoy it, and forget about it right after you’ve finished it, but it’s fun while it lasts.

This is less of a review and more of a rant, just saying this now.

I am so fucking done with this band's shit. Genuinely they are one of the worst mainstream rock/metal bands, constantly drowning in pretentiousness and overproduced instrumentation. Oliver Sykes is a terrible front man with a mediocre at best clean voice and a downright unbearable (and limpdick) scream/growl. Not only that, but he has the audacity to bitch and moan in an interview about how mainstream rock is too generic ... read more

BMTH really just gonna make an instrumental called Itch for the cure and use the chord progression from somewhere I belong on teardrops? (Also 1x1 sounds strikingly similar to From The Inside, the opening of both songs is pretty similar tbh)
Wonder what band influenced this ep?

Okay but seriously this EP is an absolutely insane blast. I'd say this is the heaviest they've sounded since... 2013? Maybe 2010. The breakdowns on this album are something else man. Also the weird features on this ... read more

There is a reason these guys are one of the only bands from my scene phase that I’ve retained an interest in over the years and that’s because they crank out QUALITY FUCKING BANGERS like it’s nothing!!!

When it doesn’t back off so much, this ep slaps. The theme is a little battered - this ep doesn’t really deliver it deeply with stronger dystopian anger. Feels provoked, but loose. Needs to be more harrowing in its lyrics and in the moods. Also, I’m glad it’s not overly glossy and clean. Can go there, but does so for better than for worse. Not everything is centered around neat choruses, but the ferocity is somewhat subdued.

The vocals on “Dear Diary,” are ... read more

Straight fire.
Up until this point I've always had a mixed relationship with BTMH, if I'm being honest.
Their motto seems to have always been that they make whatever the fuck they want to make at that time, whether that be deathcore on Suicide Season, to straight up pop and electronic rock on amo. This means that at some level, the quality of each individual is going to be heavily impacted by your subjective preferences in genres.

So after going essentially pop for a while, they return and ... read more
