"The rib cage-vibrating scream on their newest record, The Poison could frighten the likes of Dimmu Borgir. Their gritty guitars are reminiscent of metal's heyday, when bands like Cradle Of Filth and Iron Maiden ruled headbangers Stereo." Penthouse March
"Locked, loaded and aiming directly at America's metalcore fans" Revolver March 2006 "Bands To Watch"
"One of BFMV's greatest assets is its ability to play passages that are scathing, endorphin-pumped and catchy enough to hum." Guitar World April 06
Wales, U.K.'s own Bullet for My Valentine have invaded U.S. shores with the release of their full-length album The Poison on Trustkill Records last week. The album scanned over 10,000 copies and has made a major dent on Billboard debuting at #1 for Heatseekers, Alternative New Artist and debuting at #127 on Billboard's Top 200 charts. The group's video for the song "Suffocating Under The Words Of Sorrow" has also been spinning on Stephen's Untitled Rock Show on Fuse TV and Headbangers Ball on MTV2.
Press accolades have been flying in furiously as well including the "Under The Radar" spotlight in the current issue of Penthouse Magazine, Alternative Press's "Bands You Need To Know" issue, "Artist To Watch" in Revolver and a news feature on MTV.com's "Metal File."
The band who will be embarking on their second ever U.S. tour supporting Rob Zombie and Lacuna Coil this spring play a brand of dark, melodic rock, with twin guitar fury and high speed metal chops. Their unique style was crafted on their home shores of Wales, with influences like Metallica, and Iron Maiden in the mix. The group is so noted for their guitar skills that both Guitar World and Guitar One magazine have tipped their hats with coverage to Matt Tuck (vocals/guitar) and Padge (guitar) in new issues.
The band's debut EP Hand Of Blood crept in like a silent killer in our shores being released in November and having scanned over 2,000 copies a week (over 30,000+ currently).
In the band's homeland, Bullet fever is at such a high that Hawthorne Heights was opening up for them on the recent sold out Kerrang tour. Bullet has scored multiple covers of Metal Hammer and Kerrang magazine in the past year, being named Album of the year 2005 by Kerrang as well. The record also is riding high on the airwaves in the UK where it debuted at #1 at rock radio.
