About this deal

During the development of the album, Sykes said that he and Jordan Fish were inspired by all the music they heard throughout their daily life and thought about how it applied to their style. AllMusic gave the album a positive review saying, "Bring Me the Horizon have been working slowly but surely to refine their sound for years now, and with Sempiternal, it feels like their patience and hard work are finally beginning to pay dividends. The album spawned four singles (" Shadow Moses"; " Sleepwalking"; " Go to Hell, for Heaven's Sake"; and " Can You Feel My Heart"). In an interview with The Guardian Sykes stated that a majority of the album was recorded on his laptop.

The album has been cited as metalcore, [28] [29] post-hardcore, [29] [30] alternative rock, [31] electronicore, [32] hard rock, [33] and alternative metal, [34] and has been cited as having a more " pop rock sound" while having a "metalcore edge". It smashed preconceptions with it’s trailblazing release and was both forward-thinking and innovative. When asked about the leak of Sempiternal, Sykes commented by saying: "I'd make a play for it happening because I was so sure. The House of Wolves" is a song about Sykes dealing with pressures to become religious to help overcome personal problems.

It takes a while each time – a few months – to find that first song, and be like 'this is it', because we always start off by believing that this album is going to be completely different to the last, but we never know why, and we never have that vision, but it's always about finding that first song that's going to represent the album, and that took us a while. This record brought our band closer than ever and for that it will always have a special place in my heart. This was the Flower of Life, a geometric design consisting of overlapping circles, and is the main feature of its album cover.

The album was certified gold by the RIAA on 26 April 2016 for surpassing 500,000 sales though the RIAA misspelled the band's name and certified the album as "Beyond the Horizon". info in which they release an audio clip of "Shadow Moses" and displayed a video which eventually forms a symbol which became a part of the album's cover art.

However, in later interviews when asked directly about the song and its meaning the band members revealed that it's not strictly about Weinhofen (although he did serve as an inspiration), but rather deals with modern day people's hypocrisy, particularly on the Internet; where people either state reckless negative opinions and argue with other people which "not actually helping" or on the contrary preach whatever they feel is right to change the world for the better while at the same time behaving in a manner that belies their own statements (thus making them "ANTI-vists" instead of activists). The sound of the album is seen as still being as aggressive as their typical work but having choruses that are "made for arenas" [35] and a lot of electronic-influenced hooks.

Describing the album as blending pieces of their previous three albums and then creating "a whole new sound" Sykes summarises the album as having been "massively" influenced by various electronic music genres.Previous examples of where they've written was Arboga, Sweden for Suicide Season [10] and rural Scotland for There Is a Hell. Sykes believes that some of the work Date has done on the band's production makes Bring Me the Horizon sound like a completely different band. The song's looped vocal pattern was created by Fish as Sykes couldn't think of lyrics that fit in the chorus, but they then became a significant part of the song's structure. Lee Malia described the song as having a more Suicide Season inspired sound [38] and having a Glassjaw-influenced chorus.

gave the album a positive review writing that, " Sempiternal sounds like a record that wants the world--that's all of it, not just the bits where longhairs dwell--which is refreshing for a metal record in 2013. However in early 2013 Rock Sound magazine confirmed Fish had left Worship and joined Bring Me the Horizon to become a six piece band. In a positive review of the album, Drew Beringer of AbsolutePunk said the album "has just as much substance as it has style. They felt that they didn't need the isolated environment as much since they had a couple of months to rest after the tour for their previous album.The song on the album titled " Antivist" was reportedly written about former guitarist Jona Weinhofen. This was due to the fact that the ground covered by the album gave room for further experimentation. Bring Me The Horizon -'Sempiternal' The Sheffield metal band's bid to become a Proper Big Deal in 2013 continues apace". The album debuted in the United Kingdom at number three on the album chart [70] and number one on the rock chart [71] with over 9,000 copies sold in its first week.
