We are just days out from the release of Bullet for My Valentine’s fifth studio album Venom but luckily, the band decided to give us one more teaser before the official album drop on August 14th, 2015. The band released another song off their newest album entitled “Playing God” via an audio clip that is spreading across the Internet like wild fire.
Like the rest of the album, the song falls into the band’s “aggressive rock” style that has been a constant in the band’s recent work. The album will also include “Army of Noise”, “You Want a Battle? (Here’s a War)” and “No Way Out”, which was the initial preview track for the record.
When Bullet for My Valentine’s Matt Tuck sat down for an interview with Full Metal Jackie, he admitted
“I think on this new album especially we’ve done something a little bit special for some reason. I don’t know why, it feels special for some reason. It’s the strongest album we’ve done. Hopefully it is a record like that, like many people regard to our first album. I think this one is a little bit more in keeping of that and it has a little bit more of that timeless feel. Hopefully we’ve done what we needed to do. “We just wanted to keep it who we were. We didn’t want it to be over the top in any respect, musically, lyrically or vocally. We always wanted it to sound like a Bullet record, we just wanted it to be dark and aggressive. So we know our limitations and identity and how we need and should sound. It wasn’t too hard to keep things reigned in. I think the balance we got between the energy, the aggressiveness and darkness of lyrical content and the way the melodies are, I think we got the balance just right because it still sounds like us. But it’s definitely the most aggressive and darkest sounding record we’ve ever done.”
