Metal veterans Bullet For My Valentine announce their self-titled, seventh album, Bullet For My Valentine. The album, which will be released via Spinefarm Records, sees the band open a bold new chapter and is easily their heaviest, fiercest album so far.
“This is the beginning of Bullet 2.0,” says vocalist and lead guitarist Matt Tuck. “It signifies where we are right now. The music is fresh, it’s aggressive, it’s more visceral and more passionate than it’s ever been.”
Since Bullet For My Valentine formed in 1998, the Welsh metallers have become one of the biggest bands in metal, selling over 3 million albums worldwide and scoring three gold albums, as well as defining British metalcore with their now classic debut, The Poison.
Bullet For My Valentine follows the success of their last album, 2018’s Gravity, which saw the metal juggernauts play their biggest shows to date, including a UK arena tour and a massive show at London’s Alexandra Palace. But this time around, the band haven taken things back to basics, with an album stacked with squealing solos and monstrous riffs that will delight fans both new and old. From a first listen, fans will recognise this as Bullet on the form of their lives. Vicious opener Parasite and the album’s furious first single, Knives, are pure metallic adrenaline: galloping drums, seething vocals and frantic solos, creating a dark sound that reflects the challenging period in which the album was recorded.
