Bullet For My Valentine have been around for quite some time now and it’s been 13 years since that incredible debut album The Poison was released here in the U.K. and back then I was a huge fan of the band. Everything went a bit downhill after Scream Aim Fire in my personal opinion, even though Fever did have a few Bullet classics like Your Betrayal it just wasn’t enough for me, as their fan base grew up and got older their music never seemed to change or grow, the ‘false metal’ with pop rock choruses kept being thrown out and it just stopped being new.
With all that’s said the guys are back for 2018 with a brand new track Over It which premiered on the Radio 1 Rock Show with Daniel P. Carter last night! Their previous album Venom sadly just didn’t do it for me, it felt as though Bullet’s sound had become a bit stagnant, I wanted to hear a bit of growth and I think we are going to hear that in this upcoming release Gravity which is set to be released on June 29th.
It sounds less like they’re trying to be same old Bullet and being Bullet that came naturally and it shows in the new track. It has an incredible groove to it, it sounds a lot more simple than their previous work and I think it sounds better. They’ve dulled down the technical side, Dulled down a bit on the thrashing and made something that gets inside your head and the finished product is spot on. I predict Gravity to be the best Bullet album in 10 years. Check out the new single below and make sure to grab a copy of Gravity in June!
