These guys kick so much ass.

     Every since Bullet For My Valentine released their debut album, The Poison, the band has been met with critical success. The quartet has their unique blend of metalcore, combing melodic riffs, and vocals with hard hitting drums and tight heavy rhythm sections. The Poison remains a fan favorite for it’s aggressive and heavy material, ear pleasing melodies, dark atmosphere, and rhythmic tempo changes. The band continued with success with Scream Aim Fire. An album that greatly showcased the bands musicianship. Although the album is full of speedy riffs, blistering guitar solos and pummeling drums, the band managed to retain their melodic hooks and choruses.

     With the bands third effort, Fever, the album can be described as a return to the bands dark atmosphere, but this time around with a more hard rock sound. Not to say that their aren’t plenty of headbang worthy songs. It is perhaps their most melodic and balanced album they have released and charted at #4 on the Billboard 200.  The band’s latest offering, Temper Temper, continues in the same vain of Fever except with a much more mainstream appeal. Another solid offering by the band full of catchy choruses, guitar solos and aggressive moments. If you don't know BFMV definitely check them out. They are sure to appeal to any rock or metal fans out there.
