Amy Lee Foresees Bring Me The Horizon Shaping the Future of Heavy Music In a recent interview with Revolver, Evanescence singer Amy Lee expressed her confidence that Bring Me The Horizon is poised to play a significant role in the future of heavy music. Designating them as her favorite emerging band carrying the torch for the genre, Lee highlighted the innovative nature of their music, stating:
“Well, they’re not too young, but kind of. I really love Bring Me the Horizon. They think young. They’re very innovative. I feel like [their music is] completely heavy, but it also has so much beautiful, tasteful pop influence. Which is so my jam.”
Lee continued to shower praise on Bring Me The Horizon, emphasizing their catchy melodies and electronic elements: “The melodies and the electronics and everything are so hooky. I really, really like that band a lot.”
Observing the trajectory of bands following a similar path as Bring Me The Horizon, Lee suggests that these rockers may well maintain their successful position in the future.
Lee’s Affection Extends to Two Other Up-and-Coming Bands
Amy Lee’s Musical Affections Extend Beyond Bring Me The Horizon While Lee’s admiration for Bring Me The Horizon is palpable, she also holds a special place in her heart for two relatively newer bands—Sleep Token and Spiritbox. Despite their recent emergence, Lee’s respect for these bands remains unwavering. Spiritbox’s lead singer, Courtney LaPlante, had the unique opportunity to interview Lee, whom she refers to as her longtime hero.
Lee’s appreciation for Sleep Token parallels her admiration for BMTH, particularly their track “The Summoning.” Revealing that it took her three listens to unravel the intricacies of Sleep Token’s music, she describes it as a brain-tingling experience. Furthermore, Lee commends the band’s choice to maintain anonymity:
“I think too much these days the focus is on everything but the music with a lot of the mainstream. And for me, if there’s not the music then what are we doing? That’s what this is supposed to be about. I love it. I think it’s awesome. It’s creative. It’s really cool.”
