‘We Knew We Wanted To Make A Super-Aggressive Record’

In a brand new interview with The Aquarian Weekly, guitarist/vocalist Matt Tuck of Welsh metallers BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE was asked if it was the band’s aim to create a darker, more intense record with the upcoming “Venom” or if this was something that just developed on its own.

“It was a bit of both, really,” he responded. “We knew we wanted to make a super-aggressive record. We thought the time was right to reignite that fire we used to have when we were younger and just take on fans’ criticisms on the last record [2013’s ‘Temper Temper‘], really. They just wanted a heavier-sounding band, you know? It’s kind of what we used to do, and, for some reason, along the way things just got kind of diluted, for whatever reason. But we just thought the time was right to kind of get that fury and that anger back in our music, and as soon as we started writing songs with that in mind, it was just… all hell broke loose. Obviously, a lot of things got scrapped, a lot of things got rewrote, it took a long time to get where the album is now. But putting more effort in and having to actually think about it for once was actually a really smart move.”

BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE‘s fifth studio album, “Venom“, will be released on August 14 via RCA.

The CD was produced by Carl Bown and Colin Richardson (SLIPKNOT, MACHINE HEAD, TRIVIUM) at Metropolis Studio in London.
