Bullet for My Valentine Talk 'Venom,' Their "Darkest, Angriest" Album Yet

FUSE TV - Bullet for My Valentine Talk 'Venom,' Their "Darkest, Angriest" Album Yet

Welsh metallers Bullet For My Valentine spent the early part of 2015 in the hole with their early-years colleague Colin Richardson (As I Lay DyingSlipknot, Machine Head), recording Venom, their fifth record in 10 years. (Pre-order-able riiiiight...here.) Right now they're in the middle of a hefty North American tour with the 'Knot and Lamb of God, and they'll head to Europe in the fall. In short: They're ready. Here's our conversation with lead singer and guitarist Matt Tuck.

There was a very specific emotion and energy to your first album; will some of that possibly be returning on Venom?

Yeah, the new album does have a lot of energy and emotion which will be reminiscent of the first couple of records we did with Colin. But for me the main difference, and thing to expect, is the way the album feels and the lyrical content—it's a lot darker and angrier sounding than anything we’ve ever done. I think it'll take people by surprise when they hear it. We really wanted to step everything up a few gears on this one and show people what where we’re at in 2015.
