British rock group Bring Me the Horizon was formed in March 2004 in Sheffield. The initial lineup featured guitarist Lee Malia, bass guitarist Matt Kean, vocalist Oliver Sykes, drummer Matt Nicholls, and another guitarist Curtis Ward. At that moment, none of the members was older than 17. They came up with the name for the group after watching Pirates of the Caribbean. It was one of Jack Sparrow’s phrases.
After rehearsing for several months, the artists recorded a demo album, Bedroom Sessions. In September 2004, the local label Thirty Days and Night helped the group release its first EP, This Is What the Edge of Your Seat Was Made For. The alternative music magazine ABM called it the “Most Brootal E.P. of The Year”. In January 2005, the EP was re-released by the British label Visible Noise, which brought the group popularity.
After the EP came out, the band gave many concerts. At the beginning of 2006, Bring Me the Horizon started working on its first LP, Count Your Blessings. It officially came out in October. Music critics gave it many negative reviews. However, the album managed to reach the 9 th spot in UK Rock & Metal Albums Chart and settled on the 98 th position in the UK Albums Chart. In November, the group went to tour the UK. In 2007, it started giving concerts in Europe. The fans tried hard to book Bring Me The Horizon for private events.
