Overview

Welsh thrash/metalcore band Bullet for My Valentine sold a lot of records out of the gate with their 2006 album The Poison, blending old-school metal riffing and emo lyrical content in a manner similar to Stateside peers like Atreyu. On their second album, 2008's Scream Aim Fire, they evolved into a much more aggressive and assured metal act, going a little easier on the overwrought diary-entry lyrics in favor of Trivium-style anthems like "Eye of the Storm" and "Waking the Demon." On their third disc, they consolidate their style and split the difference between their two previous discs, offering ultra-clean singing and overwrought lost-love lyrics atop a bed of gated and triggered drums, staccato guitar riffing, and arena-friendly soloing. Having apparently overcome the throat problems that plagued him around the time of Scream Aim Fire, Matt Tuck's vocals are powerful and committed, whether on heavy tracks like "Your Betrayal" or ballads like "Bittersweet Memories." This isn't a pathbreaking album by a band with any chance at reshaping their genre in their image; it's a solid disc by a group that knows its own strengths.

Though I still feel that their album The Poison is their best work, this latest offering by Bullet For My Valentine was pretty good. I own The Poison and Scream Aim Fire, but had not yet picked this one up. I found a copy of it here at the library I work at and checked it out to give it a listen. Overall, this CD is pretty awesome and it flowed pretty smoothly. While Bullet For My Valentine isn't one of my absolute favorite bands, I do still like them pretty well, and I would recommend this to any fan of heavy rock & metal.
