Bullet For My Valentine are "Over It"

2018-04-02 by DatsNotDaMetulz | 91 Comments
Bullet For My Valentine have announced details of their new album, entitled Gravity. Coming out 29 June via Search And Destroy (a sub-label of Spinefarm Records), Gravity is the first album to feature new drummer Jason Bowld, who replaced Michael Thomas last year. To coincide with the announcement, they have also released a new single, for the song "Over It".

Despite the positive critical reception for 2015's Venom, which saw a return to the metalcore sound of their first few albums, the latest single indicates another dramatic stylistic shift for the quartet from Wales. Utilising more simple riffs and eschewing guitar solos, the song indicates that the album will feature a more alternative metal sound more akin to their early output, back when they were known as Jeff Killed John, a name under which they released 4 EPs between 1999 and 2003.

Listen to the track below:

Seems to have been a couple of changes to the content of the article, may have been a bit too bloggy.

I'll always love and enjoy the first couple records. They were young, they made derivative music but it had hooks and was fun. They just immediately hit a cross roads to either innovate and find a truly unique sound or regurgitate their musical influences and/or relegate to mediocrity and unfortunately it's been the latter. Honestly I haven't even listened to much of anything they've done since Poison which was trash.

Should I add the Jeff Killed John EPs to the BFMV page or make a new page for them on the Sput DB? Technically speaking they're the same band with a different name but there was a big stylistic change, with the really early stuff in 1999 being super nu-metal with moments where Matt Tuck impersonates Burn My Eyes-era Robb Flynn. Although towards the final EP it starts to show signs of what would become BFMV songs, like an early version of All These Things I Hate (Revolve Around Me).

Don't know a lot about this band but that description makes them sound absolutely horrendous and cringey.
Well Tormentor's demos are listed on Kreator's page with ''(as Tormentor)'' in their titles so...

My body resists with full force to check any live performance of them, but their singer sounds like a fucking robot with all the autotune, effects or whatever they use to make him sound so damn fake. That was the first thing I noticed when listening to venom but I guess this over polished ultra clean sound is pretty normal in modern metalcore for some reason.
