It’s yet another week in our inexorable march through time, so why not sit down and listen to another music recommendation?
Artist: Bullet For My Valentine
Latest Album: Gravity (2018)
Genre: Heavy metal/Post-hardcore
Favorite Track: Your Betrayal (see above)
Other Recommended Tracks: Scream Aim Fire, Fever, Pleasure and Pain, Temper Temper, Dirty Little Secret, Army of Noise, Skin, Gravity
Why I Enjoy Them: I was introduced to Bullet For My Valentine by Guitar Hero: World Tour, where I got to shred Scream Aim Fire on a plastic guitar. And while I really liked the vocals and awesome guitar riffs of that particular song, it wasn’t until their next album Fever that I really got into band. Fever, Temper Temper, and Venom are a trilogy of albums that I can play from start to finish whenever I’m in the mood to thrash, headbang, and play some wicked air guitar. They’re one of my top metal/rock bands and while their latest album Gravity was a slight genre shift and not as great (in my opinion) it has a few alright songs and I still consider Bullet For My Valentine a favorite band of mine.
