    With Linkin Park's Hybrid Theory 20th Anniversary Edition released to the world last week, it's been a time of reflection on just how impactful the record has been on music since it landed at the turn of the millennium.

    Bring Me The Horizon's keyboardist and principal songwriter Jordan Fish also took his time to reflect on the album with a new interview over at NMEwhere he spoke about its influence on both him as a songwriter and Bring Me The Horizon as a whole.

    Fish referred to Hybrid Theory as the "bible of heavy, catchy music", going on to say:

    "They just covered so much ground and did it with such class on that album...even with the record we’re doing right now, we still reference them. They’re one of those bands that I always have in the back of my mind when we’re thinking about where a song should go next.

    Adding to his praise, he stated:

    “Linkin Park weren’t really a macho band, were they? It was rebellious, but they still had universal songs like ‘In The End’ that your mum could enjoy on the radio. A lot of songs from that era were straight-up ‘Fuck everyone!’ bro anger, but Linkin Park were a lot more emo and introspective. They didn’t have that silly aggression that a lot of nu-metal bands had; they were talking about depression.”

    Jordan Fish joined Bring Me The Horizon for their 2013 album Sempiternal, where Linkin Park's influence became more apparent in their sound going forward. The relationship between both bands has remained strong over the years, with BMTH vocalist Oli Sykes performing guest vocals on Linkin Park's song 'Crawling' during the band's 2017 tribute show for Chester Bennington.
