Bullet for My Valentine plan to record new material in 2012

Southern Wales metallers Bullet for My Valentine have spent the past few months in the states, tearing up the main stage on the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Tour alongside Seether, Three Days Grace, Escape the Fate and more. Any metal professional knows what makes Bullet stand apart, more than anything, is the band’s champion guitar work, with guitar whizzes Matthew Tuck and Michael Paget swapping solos and melodies.

Building good melodies, Paget says, is crucial to the band. “We’re definitely conscious about melodies in every part of the songs and I think that’s one thing we bring to the table that a lot of bands don’t,” Paget told Lithium Magazine. “The infusion of melody on lead guitars is a trademark for Bullet and heavy metal in general. I’ve heard a few bands try, but they don’t quite get it, if you know what I mean. It seems that we kind of mix them both and we’re doing something right you know.”

As for the follow-up to the band’s current release, Fever, Paget says the guys are gunning for something that outdoes anything Bullet has churned out in the past. “… We just want to step everything up, take everything to the next level,” he said. That means, eventually, playing even bigger gigs in the future. “In two-years, [we want to] be able to headline stuff like this. That’s what we want as a band.”
