'The Poison' is an album rooted in classic British metal, with brutal riffs and colossal, pounding drums all lovingly and respectfully thrown into the mix along with the band’s own blend of powerhouse aggression and youthful anarchy and energy. With ‘The Poison’, Bullet for my Valentine are set to firmly establish themselves as the front runners of UK Metal, and give all the US bands a run for their money.
From the stunning opening introduction track, guest staring classical metal titans Apocalyptica, the million miles an hour heavy as hell ‘Her Voice Resides’, the acoustic metal classic in the making ‘All these things I hate (revolve around me)’, through to the top anthem ‘4 Words (To choke upon)’, this is a debut album to savour in all its epic, metal glory. Working once again with uber producer Colin Richardson (Machine Head, Cradle of Filth), the album successfully manages to capture the blinding raw energy and power of a band with the world at its feet, a band about to explode!
Bullet for my Valentine have toured with Atreyu, It Dies Today, Funeral For A Friend, and a headlining "Kerrang Tour" with special guests Hawthorne Heights.
