Bullet for My Valentine Would Never Drop Guitars for Synths

Guitarist/vocalist Matt Tuck of Welsh metallers BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE spoke to Australia’s Faster Louder about the band’s return to a more aggressive sound on its latest album, 2015’s “Venom”. He said: It just felt like something we wanted to do. With ‘Fever’ and ‘Temper Temper’, we kind of showcased the band with its biggest sound, and they had kind of touches of metal in those records, but this time around, we just wanted to make it the most aggressive record we’ve done, and thankfully, we’ve felt like we achieved that goal. We wrote a lot of stuff that didn’t make it, because we didn’t think it hit that criteria, and that’s why it took a lot longer to write than anything we’ve ever done. We just had such a clear vision of what we wanted it do be — dark, super intense, ugly lyrics, heavy — and we never took our eyes off that prize, and thankfully, the time spent writing it was worth it. It’s been a massive success; it’s been brilliant.”
