“AmEN!” by Bring Me The Horizon (ft. Daryl Palumbo & Lil Uzi Vert)

This surprise release, which came out through RCA Records on 1 June 2023, is made even more astonishing due to British rock outfit Bring Me the Horizon (BMTH) featuring Philly-based rapper Lil Uzi Vert. Besides that Long Island, New York native Daryl Palumbo, as well as the band he fronts, Glassjaw, also co-headline this song.

You can view the lyrics, alternate interprations and sheet music for Bring Me The Horizon's AmEN! at Lyrics.org.

The writers of “AmEN!” are BMTH frontman Oli Sykes alongside his Zakk Cervini and a couple of Sykes’s bandmates, Jordan Fish and Lee Malia. Cervini also produced this track with Evil Twin. 


The Lyrics of “AmEN!”

This song features the vocalist(s) celebrating the eternal punishment of the likes of ‘witches’, ‘infidels’ and ‘heretics’. Moreover, it would appear as if the singer is looking forward to the end of the world, i.e. the prophesied time in which all evildoers and nonbelievers will finally be dealt the fate they deserve.

But it can also be argued that such assertions are being put forth in jest or with an undertone of sarcasm. In other words, it’s as if Oli and Daryl are mocking those who tend to apply labels, like those mentioned above, onto others. And on that note, it should be pointed out that Lil Uzi’s contribution to this track only comes in the form of one line – “wow, that’s really cool” – found at the very end of the song.

So what this song is ultimately about can, in a way, be left up to listener interpretation. That is to say that on one hand, the vocalist comes off as if he is a religious fanatic, someone who cannot tolerate the sinful and is therefore looking forward to “the end of everything”. 

But all things considered, such as the fact that none of these acts are known to be the Christian type, Oli, Uzi and Daryl are likely making light of those who actually believe the biblical notion that the world can at any time.

“So tell all your friends
This is the end of everything
Too late to repent
The wicked will reap what they sow
We will sanctify (Rise, my brethren)
Purify (Purge out the sin)
Rejoice in their sorrow and sing
All hail next gen (All hail next gen)
Can I get an amen?”

The Comments’ Section


“There’s an undeniable thrill that comes with being surprised by new music from BMTH. And when they team up with another favorite artist of mine like Lil Uzi Vert, it only adds to the excitement. Their collaboration on ‘Amen’ is a treat for fans who have been with this British band from the early days, following their musical evolution and appreciating the entirety of their journey so far.

‘Amen’ caters to the cravings for the ‘old school BMTH sound’. It’s a nostalgic nod to their beginnings, delivering that heavy and impactful sound that initially drew fans in. At the same time, it showcases their growth and relevance in the current sonic landscape of 2023.

The combination of their signature heaviness and the fresh elements brought by Lil Uzi Vert creates a unique and captivating listening experience. It’s a win-win situation for both acts and their respective fan bases, as they come together to create something this remarkable. With this song serving as a glimpse into what’s to come, I eagerly await the release of the full album. It’s clear that the band continues to push boundaries and explore new musical territories, and I can’t wait to immerse myself in the entirety of their latest artistic creation.”

AMANDA says:

“To me, this song showcases the remarkable versatility of Bring Me the Horizon. As a fan of both their early work and their more recent releases, I appreciate how they consistently push the boundaries and strive for new heights with each endeavor. It’s evident that they possess a deep understanding of how to evolve and progress as musicians.

One aspect that remains constant and exceptional in this song is Oliver Sykes’ vocal range. Whether it’s his clean vocals, his powerful growls, or his intense screams, he demonstrates impeccable control and precision in every delivery. His talent is undeniable, and his ability to seamlessly transition between different vocal styles is truly remarkable. The band’s commitment to pushing their own limits and exploring new territories in their music is commendable. They continue to surprise and impress, leaving fans like me eagerly anticipating what they will create next. Their dedication to their craft is a testament to their talent and commitment to musical excellence.”


“I listened to ‘Amen’ on hours after its release. My expectations were quite high but upon listening to it, I feel it’s too intense for my liking. It evokes a strong sense of rebellion and defiance. The song reflects themes of anger, condemnation, and the desire for revenge which I am not ok with. Lyrics like ‘I hate you‘ and ‘I’d like to see you burn, burn, burn‘, carry a confrontational tone, expressing a disdain for certain individuals or ideologies.

The song emphasizes a sense of finality and an end to everything, with a belief that the wicked will face the consequences of their actions. I also don’t like the fact that it is perceived to be calling for purification and rejoicing in the sorrow of those who are seen as deserving of punishment. It ends by invoking a sense of judgment and condemnation towards a wicked entity, with a declaration of their fate in hell. Overall, ‘Amen’ conveys strong emotions, themes of rebellion and suffering.”

    I truly think this song is a misunderstanding of our fellow believers of God. Followers of christ will NOT REJOICE in those that decided not to follow the righteousness of Jesus Christ. Many, myself, and God himself will be saddened by those that did not find salvation through him in the next generation of life. God bless to you all, and many blessings to all those that happen to read this comment.

        Are you guys stupid? You can’t listen to an anti Christian band and be religious. You’re contradicting yourself, as well as your “beliefs”

    I agree with you James, Oli self dont believe in God and they dont have any desire to send a “good” message with this song, they want to provocate and the mocking is clear, if you talk about something that you dont believe either you are mocking or being sarcastic… either way it’s mockery
