Bullet For My Valentine has already released a number of singles from the upcoming album, including “Shatter,” which mxdwn writer Aaron Grech says “create a sense of chaos and destruction that captures the visceral imagery of objects shattering” and “Parasite” which Krista Marple from mxdwn talks about: “intense instrumental and loud, aggressive vocals. On top of that, the lyrics are also dark and heavy… [which] tie in the heavy, intense sound that Bullet For My Valentine was looking to achieve.”
Although this is Bullet For My Valentine’s first self titled album, the band has been around for much longer, originally formed in 1998 and progressing through a number on genres before reaching their current sound.
