Bullet for My Valentine Plan to Go ‘Heavier’ + ‘Thrashier’ With Next Album

Welsh metal wunderkinds Bullet for My Valentine dropped their fourth album ‘Temper Temper’ earlier this year and while it was a quality hard rock album, a lot of their diehard fans felt the band took its collective foot off the gas. In a recent interview, vocalist and guitarist Matt Tuck indicated that the band tried its hand with simple rock songs on the new album and that it planned to return to a heavier and thrashier sound with the follow up.

“Basically, we’re gonna go a lot heavier next time,” Tuck told EMP Rock Invasion (via Metal Hammer). “We just think we’ve kind of done what we wanted to do with [producer] Don [Gilmore]. We just don’t wanna do the same thing again. So now we kind of went from heavy to kind of thrashy to kind of hard rock records. And now we wanna kind of bring a bit more of a thrash metal element back into the sound, really.”

What’s their gold standard and the direction they want to go, musically, next time out? Yep, they’re looking at a Metallica record.

“We wanna kind of go ‘Master of Puppets-y.’ Instead of cutting the songs down and making them simple, we wanna make them really complicated next time,” Tuck said.

BFMV fans will certainly be happy to hear that. The band retreated to Thailand to record the album, avoiding distractions that come with being at home or being in a major U.S. or European city while recording. They attempted new and different things, and it wasn’t exactly their best received record. Nevertheless, the thrash roots are what they will focus on next time out.
