BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE are a Welsh heavy metal band, formed in 1998. Part of the Cardiff music scene, their music style has been described by critics as heavy metal, trash, metal core and melodic core. The band itself points as their main influences acts such as Metallica, Iron Maiden, Machine Head, Pantera and Slayer, basically because of their „catchy vocals, aggressive riffs and melodies“, says drummer Michael Thomas. According to another famous band’s quote, they are much more interested in how their music sounds rather than their looks.
Their debut album was released in October 2005. Poison hit the States in 2006, right on time for St Valentine’s Day. The album entered US Billboard 200 at number 128. Kerrang! Magazine gave them the Newcomer’s award and the band made appearances at the Downoald fest, headlined Kerrang! XXV and undertook a US tour with Rob Zombie.
BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE’s second studio album, Scream Aim Fire, was released in early 2008 and debuted at number four on the Billboard 200. The band's third album, Fever, was released in 2010 and debuted at number three on the Billboard 200. The band has sold over one million albums in the United States and over 3,000,000 albums worldwide and are the most-successful act in the Kerrang! Awards category of "Best British Band" with three wins.
BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE will release their fourth studio album entitled TEMPER TEMPER on February 12, 2013. The band will be releasing their first official single at the top of 2013.
The metal giants recently headlined the UK’s Radio 1’s Rock Week at the BBC Maida Vale studios where they debuted the title track. The title track received a 5 out of 5 star review by Artist Direct: “With ‘Temper Temper’, Bullet For My Valentine unleash a new metal classic that's simultaneously heavy and hypnotic. This has the makings of being their equivalent of The Black Album and further solidifying them as the genre's 21st century kings. Catch their fire as they explode now…”
The album TEMPER TEMPER was produced by Don Gilmore (Linkin Park / Pearl Jam) who worked with the band on their previous album, 2010’s Fever, and was recorded in Thailand and Wales. Fever debuted in the Top 10 in the UK (#5), USA (#3), Japan (#1), Australia (#5), Austria (#2), Canada (#4), Germany (#3) and Switzerland (#7).
