About Bullet for My Valentine
Valentine’s Day present
This unexpected change reformed the band’s sound, bringing in a new musical direction. Still, they preserved the metalcore influences, inspired by strong bands with aggressive riffs, such as Iron Maiden
, Korn, Metallica, Nirvana, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple or Alice in Chains.
After launching the self-entitled EP in November 2004, the band hit the jackpot one year later, winning Kerrang!’s Best British Newcomer Award. Bullet for My Valentine worked on their debut album, “The Poison”, until the fall of 2005, when it was launched in the UK. The band waited until February 14 next year to release the album in America so that it will coincide with Valentine’s Day. “The Poison” entered the US Billboard 200 at number 128, and it eventually sold more than 500.000 copies, being certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
From “Fever” to “Venom”
After an incredible year, Bullet for My Valentine went on a tour across the globe to promote the first album, also opening for Metallica and Guns N’Roses. In 2008, their second full-length album appeared. “Scream Aim Fire” peaked at No. 5 in the UK and No. 4 in America, hitting a new success. The band went back to the studio after massively touring to promote “Scream Aim Fire”, and released another flourishing album, “Fever”. In 2013, the band released “Temper Temper”, followed by their last album, “Venom”, launched in summer 2015.
