Today’s 3 at 3: Bullet For My Valentine [VIDEOS] [INFO]

3 at 3 Bullet For My Valentine

Bullet for My Valentine, often abbreviated as BFMV or B4MV, are a Welsh heavy metal band from Bridgend, formed in 1998. The band is composed of Matthew Tuck (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Michael Paget (lead guitar, backing vocals), Michael Thomas (drums) and Jamie Mathias (bass guitar). Former members include Nick Crandle and Jason James; both were on bass. They were formed under the name Jeff Killed John and started their music career by covering songs by Metallica and Nirvana. Jeff Killed John recorded six songs which were not released; two of these tracks were reworked later in their career as Bullet for My Valentine. Financial difficulties dictated the name change, which was followed by a change in music direction. In 2002, the band secured a five-album deal with Sony BMG. The band has stated that their music is influenced by classic metal acts such as Metallica, Iron Maiden and Slayer. The band is part of the Cardiff music scene.

Bullet for My Valentine has been described as hard rockthrash metalheavy metal and metalcore. The band describe two of their albums, The Poison and Fever, as having a “super dark” tone. Bullet for My Valentine member Matt Tuck said, “…we’re a hard rock band with metal influences, and I’ve said that from day one.” Kirk Miller of Decibel praised the band for the effort in synchronised song structures. When asked of their views on their looks, members of the band have stated that they would not change their sound or image for a commercial approach; Tuck also said, “Without sounding harsh, we’re more interested in what our music sounds like than what our fucking hair looks like.”
