Chameleonic rockers Bring Me the Horizon continue to keep it fresh, adopting a corpse paint look for their recent performance at the Tuska Festival in Finland over the weekend.Given that the band were performing in Finland, the home country of many extreme metal outfits, the corpse paint look seemed especially fitting. And it was something that the festival was embracing as well as organizers of the event had a team on hand to “refresh your own corpse mask.”  The festival noted, “The same team also created the stage make-up for Bring Me The Horizon yesterday, so their merits are in order.”Frontman Oli Sykes seemed to be enjoying the new look, sharing numerous shots in an Instagram carousel of photos of their appearance while performing at the festival and hanging out backstage.READ MORE: Who Really Invented Corpsepaint?The singer’s blacked out eye make-up and blackened mouth and cheek lines provided a spooky look, with an upside down black cross featured upon his forehead.
