Bury Tomorrow have primarily been described as a melodic metalcore band but have also being classified as post-hardcore. AllMusic writer Gregory Heaney wrote: "Offsetting layers of pleasant, atmospheric melody with sudden bursts of chugging heaviness, the band uses its breakdowns to create a brooding, moody effect, as if the songs are lurching into a fit when provoked from their somber ruminations. "Vocalist Daniel Winter-Bates has stated that he likes the ability of his band to go "heavier" and "lighter" with ease. This is reinforced through vocal styles, in a manner typical of many metalcore bands; whereas Winter-Bates performs a harsh mix of screaming and growling, guitarist Jason Cameron contrasts this with melodic singing, usually in the chorus of a song.

The band has referred to older metalcore bands as their primary source of influence, with Metal Hammer journalist Merlin Alderslade commenting on their style by saying "the quintet's blend of fierce, melodic death metal-inspired riffage [sic] and gloriously anthematic choruses was seen as of the crowning achievements of a new generation of metal bands that had been weaned on a diet of The End of Heartache, Waking the Fallen and Reroute To Remain". Prior to the release of their third album, Runes, Bury Tomorrow have said that it is going to be more technical, "old school" and in line with artists like As I Lay Dying and Killswitch Engage than their previous releases.

    Bury Tomorrow

    Metalcore

    By whatever measure you care to use, Bury Tomorrow are among modern British metal’s upper echelon.

    Long since established as one of the UK’s most successful heavy exports, the Hampshire quintet have performed on main stages at virtually every major European festival you care to name, racked up millions of YouTube views, scored two top 40 UK albums and sold tens of thousands of tickets to their incendiary live shows in the process. Shows which combine a passion, precision and uncompromising aggression that has become both a trademark and a badge of honour.

    That they have achieved all of this, and much more besides, not by following trends or jumping from bandwagon to bandwagon, but by sharpening to a diamond-cut point their brand of punishing, yet effortlessly melodic heaviness, speaks of a character that few bands of any genre could hope to match.

    Indeed, it is this character, this unwavering spirit, that has earned them one of the most rabidly dedicated, dye-in-the-wool fanbases in the whole of rock music. A fanbase which has seen the band grow steadily across four pulverising records of unerring quality and ever-expanding ambition.
