Declared themselves "hungry" to recreate the range established at the creation of a "hard, dark rock album with metallic reflections," says singer / guitarist Matthew Tuck. "We are very keen to brilliant musically than anything we've done."
If the results of the third fierce album from Jive, "Fever", April 27 is any indication, the group has outgrown its own strict expectations. Bullet for My Valentine, also drummer Michael "Moose" Thomas, guitarist and bass player Madge Jason "Jay" James, has simultaneously made its most melodic yet raw, relentless collection.
Indeed, "Fever" muscular riffs threaten to overwhelm the listener with their infinite intensity pure and simple. Tuck heartbreaking voice, once compromised by debilitating, perhaps career ending sore throat is stronger than ever.
The group, named by metal magazine Kerrang! as the best British group in 2008 and 2009, formed 10 years ago in their Welsh home in Bridgend. After gigging around their lips and develop a large home for many years, the band signed with Sony in 2004 in the United States, the band was released by Sony label Jive. "The Poison" release, it should be Valentine's Day in the United States in 2006, was certified gold in the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany and Canada. The group quickly became a major attraction known for his performances ceaselessly wild.
While still on tour supporting "Scream," Bullet for My Valentine began writing music for "Fever" in early 2009 in Wales. So great was their desire to create something beyond their previous efforts that the foursome retreated to a studio in Lincolnshire, England, on the road, home and family friends -. and focus on writing "We had to be in our own place, and we had no distractions," Thomas recalls: "It was Bullet for My Valentine 24 hours a day .."
For "Fever", the band recruited producer Don Gilmore, best known for his work with Linkin Park and Good Charlotte. "He was convinced that it could take us to the next level," said Tuck. "He has strengths and weaknesses. Given that we know that we are on the right track, we got us on track and push hard and let us work."
Separation is difficult to Tuck band of friends, but he was beginning to understand once they hear amazing results. "We just leave them alone," said Thomas. "When many people in the room, there is chaos. If only two people in the room, just bounce off each other rather than everyone shouting opinions., But it has made life a lot easier for both. "
Lyric writing sessions took place during very intense Tuck excited about, but just as often battered and bruised. "Every day I get out of bed and go to the studio and was like, 'f ***, here we go again'," he recalls. "I went a few times, and had to go away for a few days to clear my head to do. Was for the good of the cause. Sessions I'm about halfway through the voice. Clicked Don and I bonding. "
Gilmore Tuck pushed harder than he ever has been pushed. "Before, but we will write the words and melody, and if it sounds good and feels good, he said," Tuck said, "but it made me write again and change melodies until pa *** ing amazing. And there was a difference. I was trying to install in the past. "
Every drop of sweat caught on "Fever". Blistering first single "Your Betrayal" burn the earth with its opening instrumental track hot and bitter words of mistrust. "The song is betrayed and want revenge and obsession and revenge for what happened to this person," said Tuck, pointing to the text to mark the return to the "super dark" tone "The Poisoning '.
The group also tackling drug addiction and how around the addict often suffer just as much about "People think that the person who is suffering from addiction" The Fight last. "Nobody ever thought about the people who helped and then just try to be postponed," said Tuck. "So 'The Last Fight how this is your last chance, I will try to help you keep try to push me away. f *** you. This is the final battle I will do for you. '
Things Lights on the sassy title track which addresses the age-old tradition of hot girl meets boy or boys in the band, well, you know the rest of the story. "This is the kind of song that we have never done," said Tuck. "The song is just rock and roll party. This boy song. The boys are back on the road. Since the beginning of time, men just want naked chicks af *** they see it, that's all. "
Speaking of the road, unable to Bullet for My Valentine, known for his energetic performances, waiting to be "Fever" live music tour. "I love the excitement and energy of the crowd," said Tuck. "It's such a crazy feeling."
Bullet for my Valentine, they want fans to think "Fever" how the music of their musical heroes made them feel.
"Fever" sounds like something when I was 16 and going to rock music, I would go crazy and want to be in a band like Metallica did for me, "said Tuck." It's so timeless and real. There is nothing false about what we do. '
